Diet for glowing skin
Read out these diet tips for glowing skin and try to include them strictly in your daily diet routine.
Breakfast is a very important meal of our routine. Morning diet needs a good mix of foods and nutrients so that we can be active throughout the day. So it is advised that you always have a good breakfast. Some believe skipping will reduce the weight but that is not true.
Start your day at 8.30-9.30
- Have a glass of milk (180-200ml)
- Have some cereals (Cornflakes, Muesli, Poha, Bread)
- Have a portion of protein too (Egg whites, Sprouts, Cottage Cheese or Chicken)

We also have a great recipe for you to try:
How about a cheese grilled sandwich?
This is quite easy to make. Here’s what you will need: two slices of bread (preferably brown bread) , some capsicum slices, some tomato slices, some onion rings, some olive oil, a boiled egg/chicken pieces(leftovers from last night should be fine; just soak them in warm water and remove any spices which it may have or you can also take fresh chicken pieces)/ cottage cheese / any vegetables you like (in case you want a vegetable grilled sandwich), a little bit of low fat cheese slice, chaat masala, pudina chutney, ketchup.
- Take one bread slice and spread some capsicum, onion, tomatoes and cucumber.
- Place the chicken/cottage cheese/vegetable filling/boiled egg over it. In case of the chicken/cottage cheese sandwich I suggest to just stir it in the pan with some spices like red chilli powder, a pinch of turmeric, some garam masala and salt.
- Use olive oil for stirring. Place the stirred items on a blotting sheet and blot the excess oils. Place them on the veggies.
- For the egg sandwich cut the egg in slices and place on the veggies.
- On the other slice, rub some tomato pudina chutni and follow up with ketchup. Now before placing this on the other piece, quickly sprinkle some Chaat masala on the chicken/egg/cottage cheese and top it up with a cheese slice.
- Grill it on both sides and have it while it’s hot.
