 Muesli & Oats: Breakfast being the most important meal of the day, filling your tummy in the morning is essential before unleashing your busy day. But at the same hogging into unhealthy oily Parathas or Puri Bhaji or even your Butter Toast for that matter can add lots of calories to your body. A smart breakfast pick is thus necessary and there’s no better option than having a bowl full of Muesli or oatmeal. Add slices of fresh fruits to your bowl full of Muesli with skimmed milk and stay fuller for longer! Alternatively, you can indulge in a steaming bowl of Masala Oats or Oats with Vegetables which is also rich in fibre and protein with zero cholesterol.

Cookies: Yes. Cookies! But not the calorie – full and sugary ones. Instead, bite into Digestive, Oatmeal or Multigrain Cookies which are rich in fibre and contains zero trans-fat and zero cholesterol. Munch these healthy cookies and kick away those untimely in between-meal hunger pangs!

Go for Extra light Olive Oil instead is ideal for cooking all kinds of cuisines; Extra Virgin is perfect for your salads, dressings and vinaigrettes.

Stevia: There are times when you just can’t resist your cravings for something sweet & sugary. But then, if you indulge in eating sweet items again, it’ll inflate your calorie intake and there’s no way you can easily get rid of them. Well, there’s a rescue to this again.
