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.
