Sweet 'n' Sour Fish

The first month of this new year is almost finished. How many of you has started working on your resolutions? If you are the one who hasn't yet, then I am one of you!!! But still the first month has been good to me and I am still determined! I want to be even healthier this year. A good health is the best gift a man (or woman :D) can give to himself. Eat everything (but in moderation), live wisely and  be happy, are my key ingredients for a healthy "Me".

Speaking of health, most of us don't take our daily nutrients intake properly. We do get our vitamins and minerals dose through fruits, vegetables and other foods, but we usually miss omega-3 fatty acids, for this major reason, I eat fish (of course for the taste also). Fish is low in calories, high on protein and a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. This recipe is simple, easy and quick to cook. Enjoy this tangy fish as a snack or as meal. Hope you like it!!!

Potato-Paneer in Green Gravy

Winters are always in good supply of fresh spinach and everyday I can't resist myself buying these healthy leaves. Today I am here with another healthy but spicy recipe. The poppy seeds and cashews give it a nice nuttiness, spices make it firey yet earthy and greens give it a beautiful herby hint. I 've also added paneer (cottage cheese) to add some richness to the recipe but you can skip it, the recipe  tastes great even without paneer. Hope you like it!!!

Red Spinach Cutlets

Have you ever eaten or heard of red spinach? If yes , then you have had another healthiest food on earth, and if not then you must try it!! 
Not only for it has almost all the spinach benefits but also for its medicinal properties, you have many reasons to try this leafy vegetable!! Not many people are aware of red spinach as it is grown only in some part of india (and America too). I've eaten this vegetable in many ways but I find having them like in these cutlets, tastier. The recipe is simple and can be baked or shallow fried ( I baked them) !
Hope you like it!!!!!

Sautéed Chickpeas Salad

New year means new start, new resolutions (which mostly stays into the serious mode till one or two months and then.....you know what I mean :D). This salad recipe might be a help for weight-lose resolutions! Chickpea is a very healthy and fulfilling food. It's nutty flavour is not only tasty but also loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent option for weight watchers as it is very high in fibres and keep you full for long and thus controlling your appetite. Also it is high in proteins and iron. This salad has cottage cheese (another good source of protien) and veggies, that make this salad even healthier!! I like my salads to be fresh, mouthful, savoury with some crunch and a beautiful dressing, and this salad is just perfect! Hope you like it!!!
