5 High Protein Idli Recipes For A Power-Packed Breakfast

Protein helps induce satiety and build muscle

Highlights
  • Moong dal is packed with protein and fibre
  • Protein helps aid weight-loss
  • Idlis can be made in many ways

A wholesome and hearty breakfast can change your life for good, and it has been proven time and again. We understand, not everyone has the luxury of time to whip up a delicious breakfast seven days a week, but that is no excuse to skip it altogether. Skipping breakfast may prove detrimental to your blood sugar, make you lethargic for first half your day, and make you munch in a little extra during lunch time, which may lead to calorie overload and eventually lead to weight gain. A healthy breakfast helps kick-start our metabolism, and a faster metabolism is linked to sustainable weight loss. Therefore, if you are looking to shed some extra kilos, having your breakfast and not skipping it is perhaps a more viable idea. And while you are at it, you may also like to include more protein in your morning meal. Protein helps induce satiety and build muscle, both of which are crucial components of healthy weight-loss. We have 5 idli recipes that are not only yummy but also loaded with protein.
