SIMPLE Healthy Salad Recipes for Weight Loss Indian Ingredients

Chop 1/2 onion into small pieces and slice the remaining half.

Chop tomatoes. Keep aside.

Cut carrot into juliennes. Similarly, you can grate, slice, or julienne ginger.

Mix all of this together.

In a separate bowl, take 1/2 tsp of black salt, 1/4 tsp of black pepper powder, 1/2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (i have used homemade), 1/2 tsp of homemade ginger honey or plain honey. Mix the healthy salad dressing.

Cut paneer into cubes. Take as much or as little as you want. I have taken just a few pieces of homemade paneer. Here I want to talk a little amount the use of olive oil in healthy salad dressing. Extra virgin olive oil is rich in omega 3 fatty acids. This is one of the best ways to enjoy its benefits as an anti-inflammatory. 

Additionally, Indians are not used to adding oil to their vegetarian salads, right?

But research finds that the bioavailability of lycopene content in tomatoes is increased when combined with fat. Or in simple words, you cannot derive the benefits of tomatoes unless you eat them with fat. 

So whenever you are eating tomatoes, make sure to add a little amount of healthy fat too. It improves blood carotenoid levels.

Spread the salad dressing on the veggies to ensure everything soaks up the flavors well. 

In a separate bowl, blend 1/2 tomato with mint and green chili and then mix with the salad. 

Did you know tomatoes and their lycopene content is believed to lower the risk of certain types of cancer?

Decorate with fennel fern. This is homegrown and adds a lot to the flavor profile. Let me know in the comments if you want to learn how to grow fennel greens at home.

You may also garnish with peanuts and mint leaves. Let the no-cook paneer salad rest for at least 1 hour before enjoying it as a healthy starter or salad for lunch.

This is filling and sumptuous and just perfect as a healthy vegetarian salad. You will love the flavors.

I hope you like the beginning of healthy salad series vegetarian with salad dressing. I will post different healthy variations of salad and salad dressing. So stay tuned.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
