1. Make batter the previous night for wheatgerm pancakes
2. Subtitute cornmeal with Vermicilli or Rava/Suji incase you don’t buy cornmeal
3. Use whole wheat or brown rice or quinoa pasta instead of regular pasta
4. Buy a Spring Mix (usually lettuce, argula, spinach etc) box from grocery store and make your own salad through out the week with different veggies, fruits and dressings. Add egg or meat if required.
Recipe for 2 minutes peanut Chutney
In a mixer/blender add 2 handful of roasted peanuts, 2 green chili, salt and a pinch of tamarind. Grind to the desired consistency (slightly coarse or smooth) adding water. Tada, a lipsmacking chutney is ready in 2 minutes that is loaded with proteins. This is my goto chutney during weekdays apart from Coconut chutney.
