Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

This traditional Indonesian salad is an unusual combination of cool and spicy ingredients. Gado- Gado is rich in essential nutrients like carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins and also fibre. The protein in Gado-Gado mainly comes from bean sprouts. This dish has important nutrients needed by the body to build up, repair, and replace the tissues in our bodies. The fat comes mostly from the peanut sauce. The rest of the ingredients to make Gado-Gado are vegetables, which are rich sources of vitamins and fibres. Fibre helps the body with bowel function and helps prevent heart disease.

Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet potato is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta carotene) and also a good source of Vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Olive oil has multiple health benefits since it is rich in  linoleic acid [omega-6] and mono-unsaturated fatty acids [MUFA] that helps in lowering LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good cholesterol" in the blood.

Fattoush Salad

This Lebanese salad gets its minty taste and zingy lemony spice from the middle eastern ingredients. All of the herbs used in this salad have their unique benefits and contain a variety of antioxidants and since they are prepared fresh and uncooked, the nutritional values are most effective. This salad is a big plate of vitamin A, vitamin C, and essential minerals and is very low in cholesterol.

Vrat Ke Chawal Ka Uttapam

This uttapam made with barnyard millet is a very healthy preparation. Barnyard millet is low in calories and rich in fiber as compared to other cereals. Therefore it is good for diabetes and aids weight loss. It is considered as a low glycemic index food. It is also a good source of iron, zinc, and manganese. Since cereals are not consumed during fasts, this makes it a popular and healthy option during fasts.
