Healthy Indian Vegetarian Meal Plan (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

If you love eating Indian food, we have a full day’s worth of absolutely delicious, easy-to-prepare, healthy vegetarian Indian dishes just for you: idli for breakfast, dal for lunch, and curry for dinner. For the delicious ravaidli, instead of durum wheat, this recipe uses oats making the idli high in fiber. The combination of rava, oats, and carrots makes you feel fuller longer which will prevent you from overeating. For the bursting with flavor dal, the combination of sweet mangoes, intense spices, filling lentils, and healthy spinach makes the dish perfect for rice or chapatti. For the rich and hearty tomato-based curry, the mixture of vegetables, chickpeas, and spices makes the dish rich in protein, fiber, and lycopene. All of the dishes are low in calories and fat. What’s even great is that you can prepare them ahead. They keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
