'Protein for breakfast' is something every health expert and fitness enthusiast swears by. One of the three essential macronutrients (other two being carbs and fats), protein contributes in growth and repair of our muscle mass, tissues etc. Alongside, it also curbs appetite and keeps us full for long. This further leads to weight loss. In fact, a daily dose of protein in the morning may also provide a boost of energy to keep going throughout the day. But unlike fats and carbs, our body doesn't store protein; hence, it is important to refuel it with new supply frequently.

If you look around, you will find a plethora of breakfast dishes around the globe that are healthy, tasty and protein-packed. One such example is a wholesome salad bowl, loaded with vegetables, fruits, legumes et al.

Here's the recipe of a desi-style salad bowl that includes the super nutritious rajma, kala chana and green moong.
