Iron Rich Snacks Using Sprouts

Ah! SPROUTS… These are known as the bundle of health. When you feel indulgent, it’s very important to strike a balance between the taste and nutrition for good health. You can completely rely on sprouts then. The process of sprouting makes them easily digestible and it increases the iron content as well. Learnt the art of Sprouting and Boiling through this video.

And once you have mastered this, experiment with many other pulses like chana, rajma, matki etc. Here are some quick facts such as soaking time, sprouting time, quantities required and cooking method, which will help you get started with sprouts

Iron Rich Dry Snacks / Jar Snacks

Crunchy jar snacks add a lot of excitement to our day. They are the best options to reach out for in the evening time. To go healthy and store iron rich jar snacks, forget frying them and use other methods like tava or oven to make them crispy.

Try the non-fried version of famous Bengali Nimki  - Palak Jeera NimkiBaked Kachodi and Bajra Khakhras. These are sure to prevent iron deficiency fatigue and keep you energized till the next meal.

However remember to not pair these jar snacks with a cup of tea or coffee. The tannins in these beverages bind with the iron, making it less of it available to your body.
