This iron-rich breakfast made with brown poha, spinach, and sprouts turned out to super healthy breakfast.
Spinach is a super food loaded with tons of nutrients in a low-calorie package. Dark, leafy greens like spinach are important for skin, hair, and bone health. They also provide protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals. To make it healthier, I have added little sprouts in this recipe as sprouted pulses are easier to digest while providing precious nutrients like iron, calcium, b-complex vitamin and c.

First thing that comes into your mind after getting out of the bed is- A garma-garam Chai (a hot cup of tea). In India, it is more than just a cup of tea to start the day, it is a sentiment. Being a Pahadi, Chai is like a drug to us – “One cuppa chai is all we need”.
But sometimes I want to change things up and add a twist to my tea. Mint is one of my favorite flavors to add in my tea. I often have fresh mint growing so it is simple to keep on hand and add to freshly brewed tea. This fresh strawberry raspberry and mint tea makes a great drink to have when you are having guest or just to have to enjoy during a cozy winter afternoon.
Strawberries are bright red, juicy, and sweet. Strawberries are jam-packed with vitamins. In fact, you only need to eat around 5 large berries to get 98% of your daily value of vitamin C. This vitamin plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy immune system—helping your body avoid illnesses and recover more quickly. Strawberries are very rich in antioxidants and plant compounds, which may have benefits for heart health and blood sugar control.
Raspberries are a small, sweet fruit with a tart undertone. Their cheerful pop of color and delicious flavor can make any ordinary meal feel special. And, each delicate raspberry is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
