Meatless Monday is back again. Whether you decide to go meatless either once a week or for the long haul, eating healthy should remain your priority. For those who are looking for healthy but meatless meals, we have it covered for you. Check out some low calorie and full of protein food items you can eat during your meatless regime.
Sweet Potato Salad
While potato may be your favourite vegetable, if you need to lose weight and stay healthy, try sweet potato instead. Not only does sweet potato keeps those spiking blood sugar levels in check, but it also keeps you full for a longer period. Doesn’t it sound just perfect?
Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Craving for the good old chicken pizza? Didn’t you go meatless? Well, even if you seem to be craving for that cheese pizza, think again. Instead of eating the regular pizza, try the cauliflower crust pizza. Sounds healthy, doesn’t it? Well, it tastes just as good.
If you are looking forward to having a meal which is less spicy and healthy at the same time, the good old South Indian specialty Idli Sambhar is your best bet. Made with ingredients including rice, lentils and vegetables, it is a complete meal in itself.
We all love fruit don’t we? During summer, you mostly end up skipping your daily meal. To ensure that you get enough nutrients in your body, toss up a bowl of fruit salad for yourself. Add your favourite fruits. To increase its nutritional value, add some yoghurt as well.
Palak Paneer/Tofu and Chapatti
For us Indians, the best meal happens to be desi Ghar ka khana. If you are on a no meat spree and are looking for something healthy, Palak Paneer is your best bet. Eat it with homemade chapattis and we guarantee you a good night’s sleep. Who said that meat was the only good thing in the world?
