You must have come across at least one weight loss diet plan by now, and there is a 50% chance it is the keto diet. Either you are following Keto diet or not, one of the major things aiding weight loss is limiting carbs and burning calories. But if you are like us, you are literally surrounded by carbs. From rice to naan to samosa and jalebis, an Indian household is where carbs thrive the most. It is not easy eating out as well, we are spoilt by choices and can't help but go for greasy oily or unhealthy options. So if you are a Keto enthusiast, looking to lose weight or just want to try healthy eating once in a while, we have an ingredient that will not only limit your carbs per meal but also acts as a delicious alternative to it - the humble cabbage.
Cabbage can be replaced or added to a lot of meals to make it unique - the best example of that is replacing maida in rolls or dumplings. Intriguing, right? Well, let us show you some more lip-smacking recipes that are low in calories, keto-friendly, and help in weight loss and are sure to make everyone fall in love.
