It looks so funny though, my inner soul gets much happy to see my family enjoying the grandeur. Are You Calorie Conscious?? You can simply compensate Sugar with Honey. Did I forget to mention it requires curd/yoghurt Lol… It surely does. Jokes apart…. The lassi needs a good churning of couple of minutes. The Froth after churning, Mmmm. Tongue tangling and tempting. It’s healthy as well, because the yogurt and milk contains Calcium, Potassium, Proteins etc. much beneficial for kids.
Almonds are highly nutritious, having a handful of ‘em every morning is what a healthy diet should actually look like. They lower “Bad” Cholesterol. They lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals. Must have heard that high school toppers must be having almonds every morning. J
Yes, you’ve heard it all right. Almonds help provide good brain function and nourishes the nervous system. Almonds are actually stone fruits related to cherries, plums and peaches. I’m sure this information was new to you…
Almonds are 13 percent protein. One ounce (or about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of Vitamin E, Magnesium, Fiber and Protein. Also filled with Minerals such as Copper, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Iron, and also B - Vitamins. A one-ounce serving of almonds contains about the same amount of antioxidants as a serving of broccoli. It’s one of the best whole food sources of vitamin E, with about one third of the daily value per ounce. Heart-healthy with Monounsaturated Fat, they are also cholesterol-free. Quarter cup of almonds contains about 18 grams of fat, of which 11 grams are heart-healthy Monounsaturated Fats.
