Spinach & Paneer Stir Fried Masala

I have been suffering from anemia since some past 6 years. Though I have managed to get rid of it for some time, it keeps returning to me after a while. I used to feel all fatigue and incapable of doing things for no peculiar reason! It is seriously one of the bad things to happen to a lady! Recently, I was going through a regional health magazine and that was how I knew that I HAVE to include spinach into my diet as they are the BEST ingredient to choose from for having your blood counts to normal.
I love paneer and as I had some milk in the fridge to be used up before expiry, I decided to make some paneer out of it. We also have some spinach growing in my mom’s vegetable garden and so I had no reasons to give spinach a miss. I tried out this recipe and it was yummy and of course healthy too.

So here are the ingredients and the detailed recipe.

Indian Breakfast Menu Ideas for Weight Gain Diet

When I decided to go for a weight gain plan, I checked out the Indian diet plans as well. But there wasn’t a comprehensive ‘Indian’ diet. So I thought I would prepare one for myself. I drafted this one after going into the details of calories and other nutritional facts. This can act as a guideline for the weight gainers to decide their diet. So these are the seven days breakfast ideas.

British Biologicals B-Protin Nutritional Supplement Review

Protein powders are one of the easy ways available to gain or maintain a healthy weight. I too have tried out different protein powders after watching many luring advertisements. But this one was prescribed to me by my gynecologist after I said her that I feel fatigue all the time and I have to improve my health.

I was thankful that she wrote a protein powder for me so that I could possibly gain some weight now J Read on to know if it worked.

Chickpea Salad for Weight Gainers

Chickpeas are very rich in calories. It is said that 100 grams of chickpeas contain approximately 364 calories. This is our special recipe which we prepare during Ramadan Days. It tastes yummy and it is very easy to prepare once you have the cooked chickpeas. You can also use the canned chickpeas which we usually use for preparing hummus. I am planning to have it every other day.

This is one of the serious problems attached with any challenge around. To keep up the consistency and to stay motivated until the goal is in your hand! I was thinking that my level of motivation was slightly coming down so I had to sit and note down a few things that can actually help me keep up the challenge.

But I do remind myself that every human is the same and with efforts comes the results J 2.Think of your Haters or cr…

My Current Weight Gain Regime - I

Here I am sharing my current diet, WG regime, supplements I take etc. My typical day starts with my breakfast. Because I just can’t start drinking water the moment I wake up. I always try to have a filling breakfast. Though I am a lover of instant breakfasts, being a south Indian I have that natural instinct for those yummy breakfasts for which the work starts the day before itself (soaking the rice, grinding, leaving it to ferment etc) But they are nutritious (high in protein & fiber) and are massive beneficial too! These days I take care to include that kind of breakfast in the majority of the days in a week.

7 Different Ways I Include Milk in My Diet:-

My mom used to make fun of me saying that during my childhood, I used to come down to the kitchen leaving all my naughty works at just a whiff of milk. She says my nose could sense it when the milk is boiling over on the stove. That was when I am 2-3-4 years old! But for some past 12-15 years, I have never drunk a glass of milk! It was until recently (say two weeks in precise) that I decided to include milk into my diet for gaining some weight. I was firm that I should get milk in my tummy! And that was the best decision ever. I will talk more about it in another post.


So here in this post, I am sharing you my 7 ways to include milk in your daily diet! Try a different flavor for each day. I have taken enough of my time to draft this post because I needed to make sure that I have all the seven should taste yummy too!

Country Life Core Daily-1 Multivitamin for Women : My Review & Experience

Being a girl, I am meant to have super powers! If you have read my first post, you can understand that I hardly had any energy to complete my daily activities. I used to feel fatigue, fall ill - most of the days that it was difficult to do any sort of activities (even the light ones). It was not just of my anemia, but I lack much vitamin deficiency as well.
