My year has started on a pretty awesome note! I’m making healthier choices for myself and I’m learning more and more about Ayurveda lifestyle and trying to adopt it as much as I can. If you are following me on Instagram, you already know how much I am talking about eating mindfully. Really questioning what are we eating, where is it coming from and what it does to me? You know as they say “Junk Food satisfies you for a minute, Being fit satisfies you for life” I’ve made conscious decision of removing junk food in my life. Rather than nibbling on kachra snacks out of bag I have made conscious decision of eating healthier treats. I have found a way to indulge in without having the guilt of stress eating. I have taken an oath to health for myself and for everyone who’s around me. You must check out this video where I share about my oath more –
I’m sharing three super interesting easy peasy recipes using Horlicks oats which are regular in my kitchen –
Horlicks Oats & dry fruits granola
Combine 1 cup of Horlicks oats, 1/2 cup of your choice of dry fruits and seeds – Almonds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cranberries etc, 1 tsp maple syrup/jaggery syrup, 1 tsp olive oil, pinch of cinnamon and toast in oven at 180C for 10-15 min until everything’s toasty. (You could also toast this on a pan in super slow speed with stirring often in between.
Overnight Horlicks Oats Pudding
Combine 1/2 cup Horlicks Oats with 1/2 cup of water and add spoonful of yogurt. Keep it in a covered jar/bowl and let it sit overnight on the counter. Top it with fruits and nuts of your choice in morning. My fav combination is spoonful of homemade peanut butter, apple slices and mix of flax seeds-melon seeds.
Horlicks Oats Chilla
Crush 1 cup Horlicks oats in blender to make the powder. Combine oats flour with 1/2 cup besan (chickpea flour), your regular masalas – salt, turmeric, chilli powder, some fresh coriander, finely chopped onion, grated carrot (you could go crazy with adding tonnes of veggies here) and add water to make a smooth batter. Cook by spreading ladleful of the batter on a nonstick tawa with little oil. When cooked, flip to cook the other side as well. Serve with fresh green chutney.
Hope you do try these recipes soonest and when you do, don’t forget to share it with me <3
