While putting together a weight loss diet, salad is the first thing that makes to the list. Salads, comprising raw veggies and fruits, are not just healthy, they also enable us to fully avail the nutrients of the foods used. If they taste good, that's a bonus for us. We would happily gorge away on salads if they appease our taste buds, making our weight loss journey a cakewalk. Also, we won't shy away from making them if they are also quick and easy to rustle up in no time. To make your weight loss diet easier, we have a recipe of simple paneer and kheera salad that can be your go-to protein-rich meal.
Protein helps induce satiety and prevents you from over-eating. Protein-rich cottage cheese and low-cal cucumber make a stellar pair in this salad. Add crunchy onions and tangy tomatoes, and you get a mish-mash of different flavours with a range of nutrients - that's what a healthy salad is all about. Isn't it? Top the salad with some sweet and zesty dressing and treat yourself to a refreshing meal that will please your taste buds at the same time.
