My last 3 days menu sharing with you. couldn't logged for 3 to 4 days
You always just back with a bang!!
Thank you all for nice recipes! Good ideas for a couple of dinners
a special shout out to @Shanvy Mam here, who in my eyes (and must be in many others too) is a veritable encyclopedia of information on food and other aspects related to health.
I just had to pen down this here,as nutrition and keeping fit has been the instrument of my association with IL, which i have been stalking for a long time.
All ladies here are inspiring a lot of women and families out there in the world, who may or may not always acknowledge the benefits of your writings and committment to healthy lifestyles!
Kudos and look forward to connect
I’ve spent too long not uploading pics. Here is lunch. Quinoa stir fry, chutney powder and green yogurt. Finding it really hard to hit the daily protein macros. Need some tips.
I thought that would be too less but I’m extra full right now an hour and a half later.
The stir fry is a 1/2 bag of stir fry veggies, 1/2 cup edamame and 1/2 cup cooked quinoa.
@Laks09 Do you like cottage cheese? A cup is around 25g of protein. I buy a big tub from Costco and eat it as a snack, sweet or savory depending on what I'm craving. For a sweet snack mix 1/2 cup of chopped berries, some nuts and sprinkle a 1/2 tsp sugar for added flavor. For savory dice some cucumbers, bell peppers, celery and carrots. Mix with cottage cheese, add salt and pepper or a dash or any seasoning you like. You can make dessert by mixing chocolate PB2 and cocoa powder with cottage cheese. Top with chocolate shavings and enjoy.
I love it.
What brand? The Whole Foods containers run out in a day at my house. I need to buy big tubs.
I usually eat it only with berries. Yummy dessert and savory ideas. Thanks for sharing. What brand of choc PB2 powder do you use? I need to buy some.
If you are up to a bit of soaking and grinding , you can try a protein packed moong Idli;
This a new addition to my breakfast plates these days;
Soak moong dal overnight or 4-5 hours
Grind into a batter , add salt
Temper a bit of veggies ( chopped very fine- your choice you know better , mine would be onion, carrot, capsicum also i have tried and any other) with mustard, curry leaves ,gram dal and urad dal (standard)
Mix these veggies into the batter; Now add a bit of Eno , i dont know the other variants locally avl for quick fermentation
Steam Idlis like usual 10 mins or so
Can have with mint coriander chutney or whatever
Afresh your recipe of moong dal idly is a fresh take on idli making. So you don’t add any rava or yogurt. I am going to make it.
hey thanks @radv !
Yeah , do try and soaking this with yoghurt is a good idea; i'll try sometime,as sometimes it feels dry!
