Penne With Spinach Sauce

Whole wheat pasta is full of fiber which makes you feel full. Spinach is also one of the best sources of dietary magnesium, which is necessary for energy metabolism, maintaining muscle and nerve function.

Dal Paratha

Dal paratha is a wonderful nutritional boost if seeking for weight loss. High in protein and dietary fibre, it keeps one full for a longer time. Also, adding a complex carbohydrate such as wheat flour makes this paratha a perfect cereal-pulse combination. Eating this balanced meal with a bowl of curd not only provides good nutrition but also helps you edge towards a better body and overall well-being.
