If you are a vegetarian, and dunno how to get your daily dose of protein in your vegetarian diet, then dont forget to add beans in your diet. Make sure to have your dose of beans atleast everyday.

Muesli & Almond Butter Balls

Muesli makes a super healthy breakfast when served along with milk or yogurt. Muesli is an uncooked cereal which asks for grains, nuts, seeds and fruits. Muesli can be eaten hot or cold, if you want to have it hot, just cook on stovetop with either water or milk. The main ingredient for making Muesli is rolled oats along with few other grains.Granola ressembles almost like muesli but they are baked eventhough they are prepared with grains,nuts,seeds and fruits. I have became a big fan of muesli and i have been making couple of interesting dishes with this incredible muesli. After making some filling and delicious smoothies, i tried my hands in making some healthy balls aka energy bites from this ultimate muesli.

Ponnanganni Keerai Poriyal/Sauteed Dwarf Copperleaves/Dwarf Copperleaf Greens Stir-fry

Fortunately Indian greens have their place in our weekly diet, i dont forget to pick our own Indian greens like Drumstick leaves, fenugreek leaves etc from Indian stores often. Obviously i love to cook with greens, but sometimes unfortunately we dont get super fresh greens as much as like in India. However, the best part of cooking with fresh greens asks for quick cooking to conserve their vitamins and minerals. If you want a quick meal with greens, its better to stay with simple, easy and quick poriyal aka sauteed greens. My today's post goes for a super healthy Ponnanganni aka Dwarf Copperleaf stirfry, an excellent side dish or main dish for people like me to love to have with rice.

Egg &Capsicum Chappathi Roll/Egg Bellpepper Wrap

I always have partially cooked rotis/parathas/chappathis in my freezer as they are very easy to cook to finish a dinner or lunch. They are seriously handy and quick to finish your meal without any fuss. If you are tired after a long day, just make some side dish and bring the already frozen rotis to the room temperature, cook them to serve for your dinner or for your breakfast. Not only for making your breakfast or dinner, you can even dish out some incredible rolls to pack your kid's lunch box with their favourite filling. One among the recent chappathi roll, i prepared this time is with egg and capsicum with home made chappathis, which makes an excellent lunch box friendly/kid's friendly wrap to satisfy their hunger.
