Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

The combination of fat, protein, and fiber makes this Khichdi a high satiety food. Also, Buckwheat has a high-quality protein that delivers all of the eight essential amino acids, including lysine, which is usually lacking in grains. This is a powerful combination that helps in suppressing appetite, regulating blood sugar, improving digestive health, and building lean muscle.

Stir Fry Vegetables

Making a stir fry is one of the easiest, cheapest, and quickest ways of creating a great healthy and satisfying meal. By choosing a wide range of veggies, you can not only get a great mix of important micro-nutrients that fill the nutritional gaps in diets, but they also make the dish look vibrant and colorful. Some great vegetables to include in your stir fry are broccoli, red or green capsicum, aubergine, and bok choy. But these are just a few of the many types of vegetables you can throw into your stir fry recipe! And most vegetables have small quantities of healthy fats such as omega, which act on high acidity produced by high protein diets containing tofu and sprouts. Vegetables also give us a big dose of fiber. 

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

A unique Italian dish with antioxidants via veggies and protein via cheese and chicken. Tomatoes provide us with a good number of conventional antioxidants, including excellent amounts of vitamin C; very good amounts of vitamin E, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), and manganese; and good amounts of zinc and chromium. Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and a good source of Vitamin A.

Tomato Basil Mint Salad

Tomato basil mint salad is a scrumptious salad which is a major source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. It is also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. Mint and basil help with indigestion and gas. They are calming and soothing herbs that have been used for thousands of years to aid upset stomach or indigestion. This salad will increase bile secretion and encourage bile flow, which helps to speed and ease digestion, which will also support healthy cholesterol levels.
