Food is an edible art; both visual and tasteful. And, it’s hard to move away without drooling over it; especially, when people make it look even more tempting on Instagram.
Healthy eating is turning out to be the next big thing in India as more and more people are becoming conscious of choosing healthier ingredients to prepare their favourite dishes with.
With social media clearly taking over our lives, it’s a pleasure to follow these Indian Food Bloggers, who have made food look oh-so-delicious! Their Instagram handles are filled with pictures of scrumptious dishes both ‘healthy’ and ‘to-die-for’ (some maybe not healthy per se but worth trying!)
Here is what these incredible food bloggers are cooking up on Instagram.
1. Natasha Diddee - @thegutlessfoodie
The High Protein - Low GI Power Breakfast
She made these egg-based breakfasts look over easy to prepare and irresistible. What can we say, except she’s definitely the queen of eggs! “Obesity-related diabetes (Type 2) is possibly the biggest reason why Indians are going back to eating wholesome, hearty Indian food. Our spices and condiments have natural healing properties,” Natasha says.
2. Asha Shiva - @foodfashionparty
A Summer Delight
Care for Gluten-Free Vegetable Pancake?
Her dishes will keep you light on your feet and let you enjoy this summer like never before. “I enjoy delving into a good mix of spices and tastes from all around the world. It’s all about experimentation and I can, without a doubt, say I learn something new every day. Cooking is therapeutic for me, and most of all, it allows my creativity to be shown,” Asha says.
3. Nandita Iyer - @Saffrontrail
The Grand-Indian Exchange
She loves exploring meals with healthier Indian ingredient substitutes, like the Cauliflower tacos that she made using chapati and mango-yogurt sauce! Nandita is all about promoting healthy eating.“People are now realising that you are what you eat; even if you work out for hours, what you eat matters the most. With my recipes, I intend to make people incorporate health eating into their lifestyle,” Nandita says.
4. Uma Raghuraman - @masterchefmom
Love Of South Indian Food
She made this ‘sprouts and corn salad’ look like a bowl descended from heaven! “My dream is for the world to know and acknowledge ‘Real Indian Cooking’, which is an ancient art where ‘food is considered a medicine that heals’. I hope to make people fall in love with Indian food meanwhile inspiring them to cook these healthy and healing dishes at home,” Uma says.
5. Kankana Saxena - @playfulcooking
The Oatmeal Express
Her passion to learn and explore is evident from the ‘hits and misses’ series; however, her Instagram page is surely a hit with healthy food lovers. “Fuss-free, easy, and quick cooking defines my recipes. I like to play with flavor, fuse different cuisines occasionally and have fun while cooking,” Kankana says.
Don’t you feel like it’s high time you try out some of these? Well, quoting Ruth Reichl rightly here, it’s about time that we “pull up a chair, take a taste because life is so endlessly delicious.”
