Swap the junk foods with these delicious meals

We often want to follow a healthy diet, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and consume lots of green, leafy vegetables but the yummy, spicy snacks from the local restaurants, bakeries and bars interrupt us from following healthy habits. Nowadays in this pandemic situation, though, it’s better to follow a healthy diet and cut off the unhealthy snacks from your food chart. Not only can eating healthier help you lose weight and stay fit, but it can also help boost your immune system and keep you healthy.

The problem is that healthy cooking isn’t always fast or convenient, but these great recipes prove otherwise!  These simple recipes are not only healthy but also delicious, and easy to prepare at home in a short time. 

  1. Oatmeal (Masala Oats)

Oats are one of the healthiest grains on the planet. They're full of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants, and are a great source of nutrition. Take a break from your regular oatmeal and try this:

Recipe Of Masala oats

  • Use one tablespoon oil (any kind of oil: vegetable oil, olive oil) on the pan   
  • Put chopped garlic and onions, cook until it begins to brown
  • Add your favorite veggies, like finely chopped carrots, peas, beans, and tomatoes
  • Mix some spices like turmeric (¼ teaspoon), cumin, cinnamon, red chili powder (as per your spice tolerance) 
  • Cook the veggies for 3-4  min then,  add 2 cups of water and let it boil
  • Lastly, add oats, stir them for 2 min until thick 
  • Garnish it with coriander and lemon juice
  • Serve it hot and enjoy your healthy snacks

  1. Protein Salad

Salad is one of the easiest dishes with lots of healthy benefits. This dish consists of leafy vegetables, as well as some tasty spices and vegetable oil.

Here’s a unique way to prepare it differently so that it can be more delicious and healthy.

Recipe of Protein salad

  • Take a bowl, and toss in some overnight soaked sprouted brown chickpeas and sprouted mung beans (green gram)
  • Add some cottage cheese, (or you can skip this part if you don’t want to add cheese or follow a vegan or dairy-free diet)
  • Mixed chopped onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves, 1 tablespoon raw mango (optional, though it enhances the taste), and roasted nuts (optional)
  • Add black pepper and salt to taste with some chopped green chilies mixed with lemon juice and coriander leaves
  • Enjoy!

Benefits: Chickpeas are a rich source of nutrients, a good amount of fiber, and protein, plus they’re a plant-based protein, which is great for those that don’t eat animal protein. Mixed in with sprouted green gram or mung beans, which are also high in protein, nutrients, and essential  amino acids, this salad packs a healthy serving of both greens and proteins

  1. Semolina/granulated wheat/Farina

In many countries, Semolina used to prepare sweet desserts. This dish is the best option for those who have a craving for sweets, or a sweet tooth but don’t want to stray from eating healthier.

  • The next step is for sugar syrup, for 1 cup of semolina, use 3 cups of water in the pan, and use 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar. One tablespoon of cardamom powder to enhance the taste, then boil the syrup carefully. Once the syrup mixture begins bubbling,  put it aside.
  • In a separate pan, Use 1 tablespoon clarified butter, then fry some dry fruits and small coconut pieces, roast it for ½ min. Then set them aside.
  • Now add 3 tablespoons butter to the same pan and add the roasted semolina, after that, mix the syrup and roasted dry fruits. Stir it for some time until it soaks the syrup properly.
