Zero Oil Recipes recipes

When we think of weight, what comes to our mind first is to avoid fats completely. What we don’t realise is that by eliminating oil completely, we not only miss out on our favourite dishes, but also lose the nutrient value that fats and oil have to offer! You will be surprised to know that fats and oil are actually good sources of energy and aid absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A, E, D and K as well as provide lubrication to the joints.

Hence removing these drastically from our diet not only makes us fall prey to various vitamin and mineral deficiencies but also invites digestive problems, joint pains etc. Nutritionists and health experts, thus advise people to consume 3-4 teaspoons of oil per day.

The idea behind bringing out this section is to not to not make each meal oil free, rather, of the 4-6 meals you consume every day, ensure that one or two comprise of zero oil recipes, then which meal to make zero oil is absolutely your choice. Find great choices for zero oil roti, subzis, dal, chawal, soups, salads and snacks here in.
