Lunch is usually the heaviest meal of the day. So, it is important that not only do we have a balanced meal, but also a healthy and filling diet. This will affect our overall health and energy for the day and also in the long term. So, are you in a soup regarding what you should have for lunch that does not de-rail your diet plans but at the same time, also keeps you full for the day to help you concentrate on your work and daily activities? Let us give you four simple and delicious healthy recipes that are the answers to all your doubts and questions.
Chickpeas are full of protein and very delicious to consume in any form, whether it be our favourite chhole masala, chickpea tikki or a freshly made salad. If you are looking for healthier options for lunch, you can have chickpea salad. Let us see a quick recipe.
Khichdi is already very healthy, but when you replace the starchy rice with protein rich oats, your regular khichdi gets an amazing facelift in terms of nutritional values. It is the perfect option for a healthy and filling lunch. It does not change the taste of our favourite khichdi a lot, but it is just the right twist so as to not make our healthy lunch boring. So, the next time you crave a comforting bowl of khichdi, try and make it with oats and enjoy a portion guilt free.
Bajre ki Roti
How many times have you heard the advice that you need to give up roti and chapati if you want to remain healthy and fit? If I had a paisa for every time I've been told so, I'd be a millionaire swimming in all my favourite dishes. While the advice comes from the place of the general knowledge that roti is rich in carbs, we need to take into account the fact that we have several rotis besides the regular wheat ones. Let us look at the recipe for a healthy bajre ki roti.
Karela Aloo Bharta
It is not an Indian lunch if it does not have the mention of potatoes. But are we not discussing healthy lunch recipes? Well, our poor potato has been defamed but actually, consuming boiled potatoes is not bad for health at all. Combine that with karela and you get a very healthy lunch recipe.
All these recipes take minimum time to prepare and give you maximum health benefits. Try them out and have a happy, healthy and nutritious lunch!
