One pot meals

Each of our meals needs to be wholesome nutritionally and satiating to the senses.

Low fat and low carb can be your preference if you are watching these two components for some or the other reason. I am emphasising on carbs and fats more because 'low fat' and 'low carb diets' are the most used and abused terms during health and  nutrition discussions.

Generally, we should choose complex carbohydrates from whole grains and millets as they prevent insulin spiking up in your blood suddenly and later making you feel famished again, like the simple and processed carbohydrates do. So keeping the processed and simple carbs minimal is a good idea, ditching them altogether is great.

Fats are essential for our metabolism as the fat soluble Vitamins would be absorbed only when we include fats in our diet. Good fats are required for many of our metabolic functions and brain nourishment. A healthy balance of OMG-3 and OMG-6 is also crucial. We need to get rid of all the trans fats and other toxic fats which mostly come in the form of refined vegetable oils.

Normally a healthy amount of good fats like butter, Ghee, Olive oil, Mustard oil, Peanut and Sesame oil etc are better to be included in our daily meals. Sometimes you might like to choose a low fat diet just to balance out a fat heavy meal the previous day. Most of the recipes here are low on fat and high on other essential nutrients.
