Power Foods - Recipe No. 5

#WednesdayWisdom #PowerFoods #Series


‘Power-packed Recipes for the Energetic You!’ by Dt. Vaidehi Nawathe, Chief Dietician – Bhaktivedanta Hospital & Research Institute


Traditional Indian meals, irrespective of any region, consist of dal-rice, roti-subji! The variations are in terms of the regional availability of particular ingredients eg. Sattu flour from North India, Jowar / Bajra from Western India, Rice / Ragi from South India, etc. The names of dishes and their contents vary, but staple food remains the same. Smoothies – not our cup of tea, but the need of the hour is to boost immunity to fight inflammation. Believe me, its tasty and at the same time nutritious – full with anti-oxidants and pro-biotics.


Note: During the rainy season, avoid consuming this smoothie at night. Also, be careful about the quality of Spinach used for preparation. Blanching the Spinach is mandatory.
