Healthy Recipes/ Raw Food Recipes

Heylo,

I am on a quick, healthy, rawish, cooking spree these days. I was kind of bored with my normal khaana poha, upma etc.. So I thought of trying something different. I start my day early, cook new new things. All of these recipes take hardly 10 mins to get ready and they use colorful, seasonal fruits and vegetables.. How cool is that? :P

1. ABC(apple, beetroot, carrot) 

Healthy Recipes/ Raw Food Recipes

 

 

I took the recipe of this smoothie from Deanne’s book Shut up and Train. It is yumm. It has 2 apples, 1 beetroot, 1 carrot and a little bit of ginger for taste.  All winter veggies. Grind all of them together. Add some water, grind again. Also please remove the peel of the apple. This is a real healthy red blast :)

 

2. Apple, Honey and Cinnamon Smoothie

Apple cinnamon honey

 

This smoothie is my creation. I designed it based on the goodness of the ingredients used. I got honey from a village in dehradune. It is a pure honey. Then I know that cinnamon is an amazing blood purifier.  And apples are apples :P . An apple a day keeps the doctors away. Loads of fibers. The smoothy was yummy and it smelled great.. Okay I forgot to tell how to make it.. Grind 2 apples, half tbsp honey, half tbsp cinnamon and some water. Smoothie ready!

3. Apricots and figs

figs and apricots

 

Use it for mid meal sweet cravings. They both are a very good source of iron and magnesium. I made one smoothie also using them. 2 Apples, 1 fig and 1 apricot. Grind with some water and slurp slurp :)

4. Multigrain Flour

 Multigrain Flour

 

This is not a recipe just that I do not use packet flours. I get raw grains from a local kirana store and get them grounded at a local chakki. Unprocessed flour, filled with fiber. I mixed chana, soya beans, wheat together.

5.  Makahana(Fox nut) Flour chapatti

Makahana(Fox nut) Flour chapatti

 

Experiment you see. Foxnut is gluten free. It is very good for diabetics. But it cannot be knead like a normal wheat flour. So you will need to add different things to it to knead it. Like once I added mashed potatoes then once I added boiled carrots and other time I added boiled methi. It tastes yumm. I made it like a parantha with home made butter.

6. Fresh Lime Juice

Fresh Lime Juice

 

 

Lime is an amazing fruit. It is a storehouse of Vitamin C. And it is not very sweet fruit too. I make lime juice at home. It hardly takes 10 mins to prepare it. Peel the mausambi, grind it for 2-3 secs and then stop. Repeat this 4-5 times. If you grind it at a stretch then the seeds also get grinded and make it taste bitter.  Once you get the pulp. You just have to press sieve it to get the juice :)

7. Paneer, kishmish Balls

panner and kishmish balls

 

They are my newly found love of life. Every morning, after my workout. I quickly make paneer at home and then add kishmish to it to make these balls. Fresh food=fresh skin and uber metabolism. It has proteins, carbs and calcium. You can add nuts also it :)

8. Apple, nuts and paneer salad

 

Apple, nuts and paneer salad

 

This is my today’s creation. I designed it based on the need for a balanced meal which has proteins, cabs, vitamins, minerals and good fats. So I made fresh cheese (natural protein),  I took apples (Fresh carbs), I grated almonds and walnuts(Good fats) and I sprinkled flax seed powder (Again good fats). And all of these together have minerals as well as vitamins. It was a very wholesome meal. Hardly took 10 mins to prepare. The apples were directly out of the refrigerator which gave it a cold touch and flax seed powder gave it a sweet touch. It tasted too good :)

9. Vegetable Soup

veggetable soup

 

There are so many versions of it available on the internet. All of them mostly use corn starch. I did not want to use it so I came out with this recipe. Grated carrots, beans and muhrooms. Kept them to boil in water. waited for 10-12 mins. After that added black pepper and salt to it. Boiled for another 1 min. That is it. The soup is ready. Warm soups are a healthy option to hot coffees in winters.

What would you like to try from these? Do you  have a similar easy peasy recipe to share? I am off to run now. I will catch up with you in a while :)

Love

Nidhi

      The best part is that you do not cook at all. But you stepped into the kitchen for the first time to make this salad.. Shows your love for fitness :) )
