Healthy quick Indian breakfast

Breakfast is one of the most important meal of the day. You have been fasting since previous night and avoiding breakfast might thus lead to overeating especially in the latter part of the day. The focus here should be to gather maximum nutrients without unwanted fat. 

But the biggest challenge early morning is making the breakfast. Most people would be in for breakfast options that are wholesome and made in a jiffy – that’s why this section on healthy quick Indian breakfast.

All you have to do is choose your ingredients wisely and then combine them to bring nutritious meal on table for the entire family. Remember a healthy breakfast ensures a good supply of oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body and increases concentration levels too. It avoids fatigue setting in also.

From milkshakes and smoothies, to porridges, to pancakes to parathas , you will discover a whole range of recipes in this section, each of which will take just a few minutes to prepare!

Healthy quick Indian porridge

Porridge is traditionally not a part of Indian cuisine. But in this section we have tried to create some quick porridge which will be more palatable to Indian taste buds. Choose whole grains like jowar, buckwheat, amaranth seeds for porridge. These are loaded with nutrients and all of them have a different texture which is sure to give a good mouthfeel. Working around these ingredients will also keep you full for long hours in the later part of the day. 

Jowar and Vegetable Porridge has been designed with an aim to add iron and fiber along with fair amounts of protein to your breakfast.

Another healthy option is Vegan Amaranth Almond Milk and Apple Porridge. Amaranth is commonly known as ‘rajgira’ in India. Not very difficult to find, this grain can be tagged as ‘superfood’ due to its nutrient profile. Rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, fiber and antioxidants,

it’s a perfect breakfast ingredient. Along with almond milk and apple, this nourishing porridge provides only 206 calories but a whole lot of wealth of nutrients. Do try it!

Healthy quick Indian chilas and pancakes

When you don’t have time to prepare something elaborate but still want a healthy option for breakfast, these range of quick pancakes and chilas are perfect for you. They are not only healthy and nutrition-packed, but also quick, easy-to-prepare and finger-licking tasty too!

Why making pancakes is so easy? They have a flour as their basic ingredient, veggies from your refrigerator and spices from your masala dabba. Ah! The smell of making pancakes is enough to tempt anyone to assemble around table. 

Nachni Pancakes are a way to pull in some calcium, while Nutritious Jowar and Tomato Chila will provide you good quantum of iron, vitamin A and fiber. Get together and enjoy a healthy hot meal with your family before each one disperses for their daily routine.

Coconut Pancakes are also in trend now. Coconut is considered as a weight watchers friend due to its MCT (medium chain triglyceride) count. Read about Benefits of Coconut in more detail.

Healthy quick milkshakes and smoothies for breakfast

Seasonal fruits are always in abundance in the market. They should always feature on your shopping list as well. This is because fruits are one of the easiest way to top up on antioxidants to build your immune system and fiber to keep your digestive tract healthy. 25 to 30 g of fiber is the recommended daily allowance of an adult per day. Begin adding in fiber to your meal right from breakfast to catch up on this need. 

Apple and Oats MilkshakeApple and Oats Milkshake

Combine fruits with milk or curd and they will satiate you for hours. Remember to not add sugar as it is highly refined and devoid of nutrients. Feel free to add a teaspoon of honey if you wish to. Alternatively sweeten these drinks with dates. 

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie and Papaya and Green Apple Smoothie are some nourishing you can try out. For milkshakes try Apple and Oats Milkshake which is blended with Almond milk is a wise choice.

Quick healthy rotis and parathas for breakfast

Rotis and parathas are considered as staple food in India. Choose from the variety of flours available and do not forget to add some veggies for that nourishing touch. Avoid the use of maida as it is refined and doesn’t contribute any nutrients to your meals. Also bear in mind the amount of fat used for cooking. Excess fat for cooking will nullify the other healthy ingredients. 

Multigrain Roti

Try something simple like Cabbage and Spinach Roti and if you have little extra time on hand then opt for Herbed Paneer Paratha. With either delicacy opted for, you are sure to gain nutrients which will keep you going till the next meal and for the rest of the day.
