High Protein recipes
Protein is one such nutrient that we usually take for granted, assuming that it will automatically come from one or the other ingredients we consume!
However, we need to understand that not only do we need proteins throughout our life, we also need it in varying quantities, depending on the stage we are in. The special requirements of proteins at different stages of our life, depend upon its functions during every age, may it be childhood, old age, or pregnancy. Proteins are critical for a variety of tasks, right from the formation of new cells, strong bones, haemoglobin, to managing the wear-and-tear of body cells, etc.
While it is generally acknowledged that non-vegetarian foods are the richest sources of proteins, there is no reason for vegetarians to worry, as there are a number of vegetarian foods such as milk and milk products, pulses, nuts, sprouts, soya and its products, a few veggies that are rich in protein etc. All we need to do is combine them in the right ways.
This section includes an array of well-planned recipes that combine almost all the vegetarian sources of protein – and all the recipes provide a good amount of protein per serving. What is more, the ingredients are combined in such a way that the synergy between them improves the protein quality. The recipes such as Coconut and Paneer Puranpoli, Paneer Corn Korma, Buckwheat and Sprouts Khichidi are proof of the extensive research that has gone into this section.
Make these innovative recipes, and include them in your daily meals to get all the proteins you require!
