Rajmah And Avacado
Quesadillas belong to Mexican cuisine and are tradionally made up of corn tortillas. They may contain different types of vegetarian/ non-vegetarian filling and are also loaded with cheese. However, we can ditch these unhealthy ingredients by tweaking this recipe to make it a part of healthy food options for fitness regime. That can be done by adding some proteins as well as healthy fats. Rajmah (kidney beans) is a high protein pulse and avacodo contains healthy fats. The substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acids present in avacados makes them a good choice for people with hypertension, digestive issues, heart issues as well as osteoporosis. A filing of mashed avacados with boiled rajmah, finely chopped onion, tomatoes, seasoned with salt, red chilli flakes, lemon and parsley – makes it a perfect dish for fitness enthusiasts. Instead of plain corn tortillas one can opt for multigrain tortillas to incorporate vitamins and minerals from all cereals.

While strawberries are seasonal fruits but the best part is they are available during the month of February. Sandesh is a sweet item made up of paneer. As paneer is proteinaceous, one can include it as a part of healthy fitness regime, however; it is important to opt for low-fat paneer (or paneer prepared from cow milk). Paneer when flavoured with or topped with fresh strawberries can become one of the most attractive food options for fitness lovers.
