People generally mistake healthy eating with protein bars and all the fancy veggies that cost a bomb! I do invest in these but only a very small part of my budget. Also, eating on a budget doesn’t mean your meals have to be boring.
I recently attended the #McCainMeetup by McCain Foods at Sheraton, Saket. There, I met some food and fashion bloggers, and got the opportunity to taste quick meals prepared by the head chef of McCain- Tushar.
While on my way back home, with Veggie Fingers, Potato cheese shots and some more yumminess from McCain foods in my bag I kept thinking of making a protein rich recipe using these. As you know, potatoes contain good levels of carbohydrates which help you keep your energy levels high. How about adding some protein to these and increasing the fat burning process also?
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.
