Which recipes promote weight loss?
The below recipes can help you lose excess weight without compromising on your nutrition and health. • Oats contain soluble fiber that check cholesterol absorption into blood and LDL (‘bad’ cholesterol) levels. Oats also help check sugar level spikes owing to their slow digestion. There will be more satiety and less in-between munching if you consume oats regularly. Try making oats idlis, oatmeal porridge, oats pulao, oats khichdi, oats kheer, oatmeal raisin cookies, oats salads, apple pie oatmeal and various other recipes, as per preference. You can add different herbs, fruits, nuts and spices to your recipes. The add-ons will boost the shedding of fat. • Dalia or broken wheat is a protein and fiber dense food that keeps you feeling full for long, helping to evade hunger pangs. Its high-complex carbs content and low GI help balance blood sugar levels by releasing glucose into the bloodstream moderately. Fewer calories and lots of vitamins and minerals in it make it a wholesome food. Dalia pulao, dalia upma, dalia idlis, dalia kheer, dalia khichdi, dalia porridge and dalia cutlets are some Indian recipes for breakfast, snacks or dinner. Remember to use the healthier substitutes of white sugar when opting the dessert recipes. • Mix and match combinations of fresh leafy greens, other veggies, whole-grain cereals and fruits to prepare a new salad serving every day. Pick on cucumber, lettuce, beet, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, cabbage, corn, mushrooms, cauliflower, peas, Brussels sprouts, radish, onions, carrots etc. that are varyingly rich in fiber, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Some of these also give you a much wanted dose of antioxidants. Sprinkle sesame seeds, flax seeds, raw garlic, ginger, curry leaves, coriander, cinnamon, green or red pepper etc. on your salads. You can also add a squeeze of lemon or few drops of coconut oil, olive oil or other vegetable oils to enhance the health benefits.
