The healthier modification of our most favourite shawarma. Filling it with chickpeas which are good in protein content also has many minerals such as manganese which is important in energy production and antioxidants.

Khichdi is an easy to digest healthy indian food prepared with a combination of rice with lentils. The combination of rice, lentils and ghee provides you with carbohydrates, proteins, dietary fibre, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.

Vegetable Open Toast Sandwich

Vegetable open toast sandwich is the easiest to prepare evening snack. Containing vegetables such as onions, tomatoes, and corn makes it even more colourful and healthy. Low in fat, simple to prepare and providing satiety, this snack can be eaten with homemade coconut-free chutney. Also, adding the vegetables on multigrain bread gives an energy boost with an increase in its fiber content.  Adding multigrain to the diet would be a better option as compared to simply white bread.(You can use 2 slices of bread for the open toast sandwich)

Tomato Cucumber Sandwich

It's a perfect evening snack. A blend of antioxidants and fiber with different veggies and wheat bread. Cucumber and tomato are filled with water that promotes satiety and hydration. Hung Curd is rich in rich in protein and calcium.
