Low Calorie / Weight Loss recipes





Many would agree that the most difficult aspect of weight-loss is dealing with the misconceptions! How does one filter the good advice from the bad, the practical suggestions from the impractical ones! Swimming headlong into the world of dieting without arming themselves with the right information, people often end up going overboard with their weight-loss measures. They strictly avoid their favourite dishes, go on crash diets, and end up spoiling their health and appetite in the long run!

Here are a few tips to keep in mind while following a low calorie diet.

· Adopt healthy lifestyle practices, and cook and eat smart.

· Accompany it with the required amount of exercise.

· Modify the recipes by replacing the high-calorie ingredients with low-calorie ones!

· This involves not just replacing the ingredients, but also tweaking the cooking methods and procedure in small ways, in order to retain the nutrients while ensuring the authentic taste.

· Do not completely abstain from oils, dairy products etc. will lead to various deficiencies and diseases in the long run. Instead choose it wisely. Opt for olive oil as much as possible and choose Paneer over cheese always.

So, the goal of a good diet-plan is to understand the role of each nutrient in the diet, make sure all of them are included, and at the same time produce the meal in such a fashion that it has minimal calories. That is precisely what we have done in this section on Low Calorie Recipes.

This section includes newer and more innovative recipes. It has variants of traditional dishes as well as new ones, covering the whole gamut of the meal spread, ranging from soups and snacks to desserts. Try out recipes such as Bajra Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi, Almond Bread, Baked Oats Puri, Carrot Garlic Chutney, Eggless Chocolate Pudding and so on, and feel free to experiment on your own too.

Plan your balanced meals from these recipes, which are 'smart' rather than just low-cal, and enjoy good health! Stay fit, stay slim! Wish you a happy and healthy cooking experience.
