Morning If you like drinking tea in the morning, sip on some ginger tea today. It not only improves digestion but can relieve you from cough and cold too. The fragrance is refreshing and can also give relief from headaches. Here are some more health benefits of ginger tea.
Breakfast A filling and tasty breakfast need not be calorie dense. The typical Indian breakfast poha is one such dish that packs only 244 calories. You can even add the vegetables of your choice to it. Don t forget to add curry leaves which are extremely nutritious too.
Lunch Chutneys are an interesting accompaniment to Indian meals. However, the regular chutneys have high salt and spice content which may not be healthy in the long run. But you can try this kokum chutney on days you want to add something sour and tasty to your meals. Kokum has digestive benefits too.
Snacks Munching something in the evening is important so that you don t stay empty stomach and suffer from acidity. However, keep snacks light and low calorie. Just because you are craving something delicious and the recipe is interesting, don t go overboard with the portions. We say this because ragi nachos with cream sauce is one such recipe which may force you to go overboard.
Dinner After the creamy snack, you might not have an appetite for a full meal. Make something filling and light and try to finish your dinner at least two hours before bedtime. This gives your body enough time to digest what you have eaten which is good for weightloss. Make this simple and hearty barley soup today.
