Get Rid of That Paunch With 5 Fabulous Indian Vegetarian Super Foods

Obesity is the bane of civilization. With the advancement of technology comes a cushy lifestyle and no apparent causes for laboring at all. This may be convenient but happens to pack in the calories as you would not dream of giving up your favorite dishes. Hitting the gym regularly is not the answer though. You also have to think about getting rid of the accumulated fat especially on your belly that has begun to make you look ungainly as well.

 It is definitely not an easy task but not impossible either. However, you have to be knowledgeable about nutritious food and incorporate ones that can help you to get rid of the massive belly. Being a hard core vegetarian or an Indian who loves his spices is no deterrent though. You might actually find your belly diminishing steadily once you begin to incorporate the following super foods in your diet.

1) Bottle Gourd- Yes! This humble veggie happens to be plentiful in India but you may have to search high and low for it when in Rotorua, NZ. Drinking the juice of this plain vegetable might not excite you but it will melt the fat making your tummy tight once again. The fiber along with its copious amount of water is sure to satiate you and make you avoid the unhealthy fried fritters late in the evening. What’s more it comes loaded with vitamin A & C along with calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium too. A bowl of Lauki Subzi will only include 72 calories and save your body from the harmful effects of becoming obese. Do not fail to order the sambhar at STEAM that comes with pieces of bottle gourd in it. You might also try the veg kofta that turns the plain vegetable into an exciting ball soaked in spicy gravy.

2) Dalia- Forget the white rice for a while and feast on the broken wheat known as dalia instead. This ingredient happens to be full of fiber with the capacity of keeping you full for hours. Do not fear to befriend it therefore and consume it in the form of a porridge at breakfast. Alternatively, request the best vegetarian restaurant in Rotorua to serve it to you as a part of their breakfast menu. You may also try to cook khichdi in order to reduce your calorie count further.

3) Buttermilk- This is a drink that has remained close to the heart of Indians no matter whether they reside in the North of the country or South. The spices in the beaten yogurt beverage enliven the taste adequately making you content. It also happens to be filled with lactic acid and probiotics that aid digestion. STEAM will be only too glad to serve their brand of Matka Chaas  to you as well. 

4) Carom Seeds- You are sure to have ajwain or carom seeds in your home, if you happen to be a proud Indian. While it acts as a mouth freshener after meals and keep indigestion at bay, it is also known to have proven weight reducing properties. Simply chewing on it will enable you to quicken up the metabolism thereby helping you to burn calories that much faster. No issues, if you are not fond of the taste of raw carom seeds. Boil a pinch of it in a jug of water and chug it down to keep your belly restrained.

5) Lentils- Dals as lentils are known in India can work wonders in reshaping your tummy. Be sure to ask for the moong dal or mung beans when you are hellbent of getting rid of the bulging belly.
