Sprouts in Lettuce Cups

Mulligatawny: The Indian Soup
India is the ‘Land of Spices’ which is often considered unhealthy however this soup is an exception. This is the national Soup of India prepared with Lentils, coconut milk, Indian spices, ginger, onion, garlic and tomatoes that are slightly cooked and then pureed. This is the best source of proteins with fiber.
Advice: You may enjoy this with boiled rice as it is simply a derivative of an Indian Dal.
Here comes our favorite Muesli however not with milk but it’s Bircher Muesli. Soak Muesli overnight in apple
juice, add yogurt with a lot of nuts & berries and then garnished with strawberries and apricot.
Advice: Serve it chilled for the optimum taste.
We all know how overrated milk is and how it comes in various alternatives for fitness-lovers, like low fat, skimmed milk, double toned, etc.; however, none of these are as useful as Milk whey. This is a complete protein and is really supportive when eyeing for true proteins as it contains all the essential amino acids.
Advice: You can freshly make it by curdling milk with lemon juice.
Epigamia Greek Smoothie
This is the easiest of all to prepare. Take Epigamia Yoghurt, which is made from Soya milk and is widely available in the market, add some honey if you have sweet tooth and blend it as a thick smoothie. This is very rich in soya protein.
Advice: May add some Soya milk if you prefer to make the consistency thinner.
Egg white Omelet
Albumin is the best quality natural protein available contrary to yolk that is the poorest of the fats in an egg. First of all, segregate egg yolk and white and then as per your choice add finely chopped onions, bell peppers spring onion, tomatoes, black pepper, and salt. Use your fork to thoroughly beat them and then place a pan over flame lightly greased with olive oil to prepare your fluffy egg white omelet.
Advice: Cook this in low flame and as less as possible because proteins should not be cooked much to retain the essential amino acids.
