1. Peanut Butter And Whole Wheat Bread
Whole wheat bread is rich in fibre and carbs
Peanut butter is packed with vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, proteins and b-vitamins
This combination is a convenient breakfast and pre-workout food
The fats present in butter reduce the insulin peaking capacity of the sandwich
Together they’re the right culmination of taste and texture!
2. Yoghurt and Honey
Yoghurt and honey is a popular post-workout food
Yoghurt brings in the power of protein to repair your muscles
Honey spikes your insulin enough to usher the protein into your muscles
Honey is known for its digestive properties
While yoghurt maintains the healthy ratio of bacteria in your gut
This combination is a healthy alternative to dessert after a meal!
3. Dal And Rice
The good old dal chawal packs a bunch of nutritional benefits!
Plant based-foods stand incomplete because of their lack in essential amino acids
That’s why they’re paired together to ensure completeness of proteins
Dal and rice compensate each other's amino acid profile and represent a complete form of protein
Dal and rice are hence a perfect combination of taste, tradition and nutrition!
4. Fruits And Nuts
Fruits and nuts are an easy, healthy ‘middle of the day’ snack
Fruits are rich in fiber, antioxidants and contain lots of water
While nuts supply the well in demand goodness of unsaturated fats and fatty acids
Together this combination beats hunger and supplies micronutrient benefits
If consumed in moderate amounts, it keeps your calorie consumption for the day down!
5. Idli And Sambhar
Just like dal and rice, idli and sambhar come together with a purpose
Tamarind, dal and veggies soaks the idli to perfection and enriches its protein profile
They also compensate each other’s amino acid profile
The combination is now nutritionally accepted for its protein contribution
This partnership is here to stay!
