11 Best Healthy Recipes | Easy Healthy Recipes

Best Healthy Recipes | Healthy food doesn't have to be dull and neither does it have to be complex. And to prove this to you, we've got a wide range of surprisingly delicious tips and wholesome recipes. The kind that any out and proud foodie will love.

But first, we'll have to ask you to turn your back on all junk-food cravings. As David Kesler puts it rightly in his book 'The End of Overeating'- "A sense of powerlessness is a big obstacle to success. You need to develop a sense of your own capacity for control." You need to put a stop to untimely cravings, especially those that desire salt, fat and sugar.

After all that greasy biryani, piping hot halwa and crumbly shaami kebabs, our bodies could use a break. And that doesn't mean that you ban carbs from your diet or eat all you can in an eight hour window. New age nutritionists believe that eating healthy is all about eating desirable. So opt for a delightful mix of proteins like soya, chickpea,tofu, seeds, leafy greens, all kinds of grains and wheat.

If you're one of those who eat out-of-home because you can't crack an egg open, then we've got you covered as well. Our tips and easy healthy recipes such as kiwi smoothie, jowar medley and carrot salad, all these will put even the most amateur of cooks on the right track. We've also got some great advice for impulsive and emotional eaters.

Throw out the high-calorie food, empty your snack drawer even though we know it'll pain you to do so, and munch on seeds like flax, pumpkin and amaranth. Add some fresh fruits as well for a good dose of potassium, magnesium and calcium. And finally, some fiber-rich toasted almonds and walnuts that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acid.

It's really hard to switch to a healthy diet, especially when you've never had to think of it before. So let's start slow.

Here are a few handy tips that don't tell you to put out all your cravings, but show you how to manage them better

Tips For A Healthy Diet

1. Try low-fat yogurt with seasonal fruits like berries, bananas and melon.

2. Replace sour cream with blended low-calorie cottage cheese or a home-made buttery avocado spread. Both being protein rich options are extremely beneficial, especially for vegetarians.

3. Sugar lovers - Include a tiny portion of dark chocolate in your daily diet to cut out sugar cravings and make your skin softer and radiant.

4. If you like peanut butter, then make it at home. Just take soaked peanuts and grind them together till they look like cream. But restrict your intake to one spoon every few days.

5. Instead of frying eggs and bacon, lay them on a tray, and bake to perfection.

6. Eat a lot of baked fish for a healthy heart.

7. Add mushrooms to make meatballs, and use whole wheat pasta for a healthy variation of Spaghetti Meatballs.

8. Healthy cookies: Bake healthful cookies with ragi or oatmeal.

Now, let's get down to cooking. From sweet and sour salads to amaranth tikki, from buttermilk chicken to delicately charred broccoli, we've got it all.

Here are some fresh, inventive and elegant recipes that you'll want to bookmark | Easy Healthy Recipes:
