For Malcolm Fernandes, a city-based supply chain professional and proud Goan, reducing his bread consumption has been the toughest experience. “Being a typical Goan Catholic, I have grown up eating pao and bread and they are my absolute favourites. They are the best side to enjoy fish and chicken curries with,” says the 32-year-old Bandra local. When he began experiencing uneasiness after lunch and dinner due to a digestive issue, Fernandes was asked to stop eating bread, rice and wheat and to replace them with jowar, bajra and nachni late last year.
