For some, stay-at-home COVID-19 lockdown times meant less workout and more snacking. Which means more pounds on your body to fret over. For some others, lockdown meant the start of a new healthier diet. With the beginning of a fresh year, both teams are likely to go for resolutions of keeping their diet options healthier.

Whichever group you belong to, we wish you good luck with your plans. And to help with it, here are three salad bowl recipes from Onmanorama Food that you can try right away:

Raw papaya salad

With vegetable prices soaring, this could be one of the best pocket-friendly options. Raw papayas can easily be found in one's backyard. Even if you don't have options to just go and pluck one, you can always get them from your local vendors or supermarkets. One medium sized raw papaya would cost less than Rs 50 in the shops.
