“You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.” –Yogi Berra
This surely is not the approach to portion control and was said in jest by the American baseball star. We often equate healthy eating with smaller portions, or even starve ourselves. Studies indicate that smaller and frequent meals with snacking in between, is the mantra for a healthier and fitter body. You can follow all the health tips at home. But what happens when we go out to eat?
Restaurant style food is redolent with flavor, but is also layered with excess fat, oil and spices. We are always on the lookout for healthy food joints. Delhi is the national and gastronomical capital of India. The food here is predominantly rich in North West frontier cuisine with rich dals and malai koftas. Fortunately, there is a new crop of healthy restaurants, which offer lip-smacking and healthy delicacies.
