As it’s the new start to a yet another week full of work and meeting deadlines, I want to eat fresh to feel fresh. I want to eat meals that are made up of at-least one SUPERFOOD ingredient. And to ward off my MONDAY BLUES, I made myself a POWER SALAD for today’s lunch. It contains one of my favorite superfood – BUCKWHEAT. The salad also contains a good amount of lentils that are pretty healthy in their own as well. A single cup of cooked lentils contain almost 16 grams of dietary fiber, is a very good source of LEAN PROTEIN, FOLATE & IRON. BUCKWHEAT is low on the glycemic index which prevents a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. We can also say that Buckwheat has more protein than corn, millet, rice or wheat and is naturally GLUTEN FREE. Let us just make this salad for a powerful jumpstart towards a hectic week ahead.

You don’t really have to give up on your favorite dishes if you are on a KETO DIET. You just need to make a few good changes. Small alterations in the recipes and a few alternate ingredients would still let you enjoy your all time favorites. Like I love Chicken Thai Noodles and have been very loyal to this dish as long as I can remember. I am sure you would have your specific favorite dishes too. So since the time I have been on this KETO DIET, I have given this dish a new improved KETO WAY. In spite of using the regular noodles, I add ZOODLES (zucchini noodles) to the dish. It gets so much more nutritious this way. You get a wholesome amount of protein from the chicken. Zucchini is a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamin A, C and B6 and a lot more. Make it during this weekend and surprise everyone at home.

When you’re on a KETO DIET, it’s really hard finding options when eating out. You also have limited options for your at-home meal preps, that is, you just can’t prepare meals that include those hearty-grainy sandwiches or those yummy and filling wraps. But recently, when I decided to SWORE OFF GRAINS, I tried re-creating one of my all time favorite wrap – SPINACH, HERB & FETA WRAP in keto style. So for this, I have replaced the usually used wrap with a wrap made of eggs and egg whites whipped together in sesame oil. This gives the wrap that specific texture that it needs to be perfect for filling! Sounds unreal? It tastes un-really good too. Follow this simple KETO RECIPE to meal prep these wraps for quick and carefree breakfasts that are GLUTEN FREE and OH SO KETO-DELICIOUS!

I’m a hard core DESSERT LOVER and only I know how hard it is not to indulge in the sweetness of desserts literally every day. This summer, I made a lot of desserts at home as this way I could have easily controlled the sugar quantity and also omit various kinds of preservatives that the market available packaged dessert options contain. Fruits are very essential in my life and whenever I feel I need that sweet fix, I make some very easy yet delicious fruit sorbets at home. You would only need your favorite fruit, some sugar ( very less quantity, as the fruit already contains the natural sweetness in it), some lime juice and food coloring to make this one. Try GUAVA SORBET tonight and surprise you loved ones.
