Remy's Recipe - Coleslaw & Papaya-honey shake

TGIF! One of my friends is dieting and I wanted to write a dieting recipe to encourage her. The famous Davis quote says "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”. So, the first mantra to dieting (not starving) is to have a healthy breakfast. And if your cereal box says it’s nutritious, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s healthy. Don’t get carried away by commercial messages, especially the ones about Kids’ cereals. (They often have more sugar than sweets, which is not healthy).

Breakfast wakes up the metabolism and gets your engine running which is needed to burn to lose weight. It also sets the tone for the rest of the day. So here is a easy to make breakfast recipe which is worth trying: Remy Coleslaw and Papaya-Honey shake.

To make the Remy Coleslaw salad you need:
Lettuce 1
Onion 1
Tomato 1
Lemon 1
Spring onions 3
Carrot 1
Bean sprouts (optional)
Yogurt 2 teaspoon
Tartar sauce / Mayonnaise 4 teaspoons
Honey 1 teaspoon
Pepper & salt to taste

Crumble the lettuce into small pieces, add chopped onion, tomato, bean sprouts and crated carrot. Add tartar sauce, yogurt,honey and squeeze lemon. Use one half of the lemon and taste the salad, if needed add the second half as well. Sprinkle pepper and salt to perfection! Its tastes better if you refrigerate for 10 minutes. This is a customised recipe of coleslaw and its a good side dish for any meal of the day.

The nutritional value of vegetables in Coleslaw makes it an excellent food choice for both weight control and general health. And you would be surprised to know that this salad helps to control glucose in blood!
Now lets make Papaya-Honey shake.
Papaya (the size of papaya in the above picture serves 4)
Milk
Honey - 2 teaspoons (add more later, if you like)
Sugar (brown sugar is advisable)
Cinnamon powder - a pinch (optional)
Put them together in blender and there you go!

Honey is anti oxidant and natural nutritive sweetener. Many dietician rate papaya as the no1 fruit (based Vitamins, potassium and fibre content). It’s a good source of vitamins a, b and c. The papin in papaya digests proteins and proved to be very helpful for digestion, so it’s used in many digestive supplements. Its anti-inflammatory and Intestinal worms don’t stand a chance against it! Papin also nourishes the skin in many ways (it promotes skin glow!) and helps to heal wounds. But the best thing I like about papaya is, it fills the stomach quiet nicely which is much needed when dieting :) So stop giving lame excuses for not having papaya :P
p.s:Make sure you eat plenty of healthy vegetables and fruits during dieting. Wishing you a perfect weight :P

Update: Just realised tomorrow is Teachers day and I want to pass on this wish to someone special :)

I was born in a lower middle class family. All that I have now is because of the education I had. And I am thankful to all those teachers who helped me to learn about the world around me and to know about myself. I regret that I don’t have contact with any of my teachers now, but I am glad to know a teacher through blogs - Aruna. "I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well. ~Alexander the Great"
Aruna,
Thanks a lot for being a guide and ladder to many, your words and deeds inspire us all. Wishing you great health and abundance to carryon this noble work. Happy Teacher day :)

Hi, I love salads too. But I'm not really fond of coleslaw. You know how runny it gets when you keep it in the fridge. Any tips how I could avoid this situation? I don't want to eat my coleslaw warm, I don't wanna eat it when it's all watery either. ^^

More shake and smoothie recipes please!

//Hi, I love salads too. But I'm not really fond of coleslaw. You know how runny it gets//

Any salad had to be eaten fresh :) the coleslaw if kept for long tend to water becoz of the water content veggies like lettuce and onion combo, What u can do is use less onion and dont add salt , pepper and lemon - keep it in fridge for 10 mins and then add lemon salt pepper and eat.

Or

keep all the veggies well refregirated and then use them to make the salad, and eat it fresh :)

//

:) sure my pleasure :)
//Use one half of the lemon and taste the salad, if needed add the second half as well//

This is where the "teacher" in the "cook" comes out :)
Some lemons are really strong and pungent and going by the cook book, sometimes I have ended up in a shakeup instead of a shake :)

Esp when I do Cucumber-Pomato Yogurt shakes, lemon becomes the demon:)

So, such practical tips by the recipe teacher are really helpful!
Happy Teachers Day - Srivats Teacher :)

and BTW
Happy Teachers Day - Aruna!
