Talking about the healthy diet, the Michelin Star Chef Vikas Khanna on Thursday stressed on the importance of taking a healthy diet. He advised people to start their day with a power-packed breakfast like oats.
During "Quaker Breakfast Table" an event organised by Quaker Nutri Foods here, Chef Khanna introduced the audience to some new and quick recipes out of oats which can be easily incorporated in our daily diet and also launched a wide range of products offered by Quaker.
"Oats have a lot of healthy benefits which usually we tend to ignore. A handful of oats mixed in any Indian breakfast recipe can bring a lot of change in our lifestyle," Chef Khanna told IANS.
He went out to prepare some easy food items like idlis and upmas with a twist -- yet maintaining the flavour and rich nutritious value.
The oats flour which is readily available in the market can be used to prepare healthy yet delicious snacks like upma, uttapam, kheer or a simple chapatti.
"The real rocket science in the culinary world is home-cooking. Morning makes the day and getting a healthy start is very important. Oats contain fibre, protein and are gluten free. It is also a source of instant energy," Khanna added.
