The cold winds of winter indeed instil a new flavour in food. The vegetables with steamy gravy simply taste more comforting.
Being healthy does not have to be tedious. People tend to mix the healthy with yummy and spice things up for themselves. It can be a challenge to sort out a healthy, yummy and delicious looking breakfast every day for yourself, but minor tweaks can make major changes.
How about waking up to a steaming bowl of sambar curry with mushy idlis? Or chewing away to health with garden fresh poha or upma. We have chalked out a breakfast menu that will guarantee you a balance of nutrition with Indian flavours.
Vegetable Dalia is an Indian superfood for weight loss due to its dietary fibre content. Great for winter mornings when you need something warm to begin your mornings with.
The south-Indian speciality is another wholesome option. Since it is made out of semolina, it provides the body with enough energy to sustain itself throughout the day. You can savour it with sambhar, which is another anti-oxidant rich curry.
Palak pooris and aloo
Who says healthy people should stop eating regulars like poori aloo to stay fit? Add a healthy twist and you are good to go. Palak or spinach will bring in the fibre factor and potatoes are complex carbs that are good for weight loss.
Oats are rich in proteins and making poha out of them will help bring in the Indian-ness to this western speciality. It is not necessary to only have them with water or milk. You can add your favourite veggies and even fruits and have them for breakfast.
Not that normal dosa is unhealthy, but you can give it a healthier twist like beetroot, which is rich in potassium. Sunday-morning brunches will not be boring if you are trying to lose weight with these.
The super favourite multi-talented parantha is a great choice if you wish to be healthy. If you include three grains in your atta and make a stuffed parantha with a filling of your choice (even cheese), it is a healthy option. Loaded with fibre, vitamins, proteins, and carbs, paranthas are a great start to your day.
Eggs are known to be a whole source of protein. Adding veggies like onions, tomatoes, capsicums will help you break the monotony of your taste buds. One egg contains a minimum of 6 grams of protein, therefore, they are a great start to completing your protein requirement for the day.
Sprouts salad makes for a healthy snack or side dish with your poached or boiled eggs. Packed with dietary fibre and vitamins & minerals, sprout salad is an excellent choice to add to your breakfast.
Now make your breakfast interesting every day with these recipes and get set for rest of the day.
