How was your week? I received mails from some of you about your weight loss routines and inspiration and I was very very happy that this segment motivated you to take control of your weight. Today I’m sharing 3 delicious, healthy recipes that I’ve been incorporating quite often in my diet this week.
1. Fruit Smoothie
I love fruits, I love milk and I love yogurt. Throw the 3 together and I’ve got my perfect mini-meal! I’ve been mostly having a banana smoothie after my workout and it gives me the much needed energy after exercise. I also add a few dry fruits if I’ve missed that meal of the day – mostly almonds, prunes and walnuts and occasionally raisins. Apart from bananas, I also tried out a watermelon smoothie the other day and it was delicious! This is my most anticipated and cherished meal of the day!
Recipe : Pretty simple to make – 1 banana, 3 large spoonfuls of dahi (yogurt) and half a cup of milk. Throw in some dry fruits (almonds, prunes, raisins, walnuts ) and blend the mixture in a blender/mixer for 2 minutes. You can also add ice but I prefer not too as it dilutes the consistency and I like it thick. Since the keep the milk and yogurt in the refrigerator anyway, the smoothie is cold enough for me. You can also add a pinch of cardamom powder (ilaichi) or cinnamon (dalchini) for some added flavor.
