Power of Protein:

We have seen our mothers and grannies making paneer or curd at home with leftover milk. Ever wondered what that water-like substance is? Often thrown as waste after making paneer or seen as leftover after the curd is set is actually pure milk protein that gets filtered during the process. It’s a quick digesting class one protein that the human body can easily absorb and can benefit from. Instead of throwing the residual water after making paneer or removing it from curd to make it thick and creamy, use it in kneading your dough for chapati, or add it to dals, vegetable curries, soups, and even for cooking rice and pasta. Our Indian vegetarian meals lack class one source of protein and this can positively increase the nutritional value of simple everyday meals.

Power of Fibre:

Food rich in fiber helps your body to dispose of the toxins, regularise bowel movement, lowers blood sugar and cholesterol levels. A few basic changes to our whole wheat flour, dosa idli batter, and chapati can lead to more fiber. Adding multiple grains like jowar, bajra, oats, ragi, legumes in our flour or batter doubles up its nutritional value and fiber content. The same can be done if you are fond of baking cakes and cookies. The more the number of different kinds of grains on your plate, the healthier it is.

For your sweet tooth:

There is a great way of having your favorite ice cream, make it with frozen fruits at home with no added sugar. Fruit with natural pulp like banana, mango, chikoo, coconut cream, or papaya can be frozen in the refrigerator for few hours after which once you blend it in the blender it gets nice creamy ice cream. You can also add berries, nuts, or dark chocolate to enhance the flavor. Juicy fruits like orange, watermelon, sweet lime, kiwi can be great options for making popsicles once their juice is extracted. Also, instead of sugar-laden thick shakes with artificial flavors and milk, adding fruits and yogurt can be a game-changer to your list of healthy and guilt-free desserts or snacks. (IANS/KB)
