“The only balanced diet you can ever have is when you have desserts in both hands.”
For the love of desserts and healthy food, let’s put a healthy and tasty twist to a classic dessert.
Watching Vikas Khanna’s Persimmon Chili Cobbler recipe, I decided to make a healthy dessert. And no desert is ever complete without chocolate. I REPEAT, NO DESERT IS EVER COMPLETE WITHOUT CHOCOLATE.
For my #Foodventure I decided to throw in some dark chocolate, oats, my favourite- peanut butter and some chilies (YES I SAID CHILIES); and make chili chocolate bars. Chilies and chocolate bring out each other’s richness.
Small frequent meals- They keep you energetic and your metabolism humming! If you’ve been following Butterandbutts, I am sure you know how I’ve always focused on the importance of eating something every few hours. The idea is to feed your stomach a little, give it time to digest and then feed some more, instead of overloading it with food and forcing it to work hard. And its hard work surely pays off- Look at those love handles! However, having small frequent meals doesn’t mean that you eat whatever you can get your hands on. The idea is to keep yourself well stocked so that you can eat healthy whenever, wherever you want!
High protein foods are meant for bodybuilders. Weight lifting? That too. FALSE!
I love weight lifting and I do it 2-3 times a week, and have been doing it for quite some time now. But I don’t have a muscular body. Reason: I don’t have testosterones.
I get a headache every time I hear “I’d rather enjoy my food and die early than eat healthy and live long?” There has always been a misconception that healthy food is not tasty. Putting it better- It’s just ghas phus. Just to debunk this myth, I decided to explore places that make finger licking healthy food.
Last week, post office, I decided to visit Lean Chef. I got titillated by fresh-from-the-oven aroma of the food items as soon as I entered the place.
