I have been asked by many of my friends about the recipes I use for my low cal diet . When your aim is to loose that extra weight and inches, only the diet might not help you fully. The proper protein rich diet with the combination of workout will surely help you to reach the goal. The goal of course to should to become more fit than you are now. Do consult your doctor and trainer before you start your fitness regime.
Thick creamy soups and low cal smoothies can replace your regular carb loaded breakfast.I regularly make broccoli spinach soup for my breakfast as it is quite filling and takes cares of my protein necessity and nutrition as well.
Slice the onions keep aside
Cut the florets from the broccoli and pick the leaves from the bunch of spinach. Wash well
Heat the oil in a pressure cooker on a low flame.( I generally use my 2 lt cooker.) Add the onions and sauté for 1 minute
Now add the broccoli, spinach, chilli, ginger and coconut milk. Mix well
Add water, salt and mix well and continue to cook on a low flame
Close the lid and pressure cook it for 4 mins on high flame or uo to 2 whistles. Switch off the fire. Let it cool completely
Now transfer the contents to a blender and blend till smooth
Note:I have cooked the brocolli and spinach in a pressure cooker. You can choose to cook it in a pan on an open flame too or else you can microwave the vegetables without the coconut milk and water but add it while blending the soup and then reheating for a fews minutes
