Chef Vikas Khanna emphasized the need for starting the day with a healthy diet. Like the old saying goes, "Eat breakfast like a king"! Include oats in the diet, take advantage of its health benefits.
During "Quaker Breakfast Table" an event organized by Quaker Nutri Foods here, Chef Khanna introduced the audience to some new and quick recipes made 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 flavor and rich nutritious value.
"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 fiber, protein and are gluten free. It is also a source of instant energy," Khanna added.
