So much work in such little time sounds like a task, right? It is indeed, but you can always ease off your burden by playing it smart. Having healthy ingredients like sprouts and paneer in the bay, may come in handy on tough days like these.
Both the ingredients of sprouts and paneer are so versatile, you can use them for anything. Besides, you can also tuck into them raw. Together, they happen to be two of the best sources of protein that vegetarians can add to their diet. Protein helps induce satiety, if you feel satiated you are much less likely to binge later. Less unnecessary noshing means less kilos. Protein also helps regulate hunger hormones, and keeps cravings at bay.
Apart from heart-healthy fibres, moong dal is enriched with a treasure of antioxidants that help fight free radical activity. The dangerous free radicals are known to make cells age faster and also hamper the body's immunity system. Paneer, on the other hand, is a good source of calcium too that helps strengthen bones and teeth.
