5 Ways You Can Add Millets To Your Daily Diet
It's time to reboot ourselves by switching to Millets!
In our modern lives, we must understand millets and ways to add millets to our day-to-day diet. Precisely millets are a group of small-seeded grasses that have been cultivated for thousands of years and are a staple food in many parts of the world. Not only are they gluten-free, but are also rich in nutrients like fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Millets are rich in antioxidants and have gained popularity as a healthy and sustainable food choice. From Millet diet charts to Millet recipes, people are obsessing over this centuries-old treasure. India is the largest producer of millet across the globe.
5 Effective Ways to Add Millet in Diet
1. Millet Roti
Chapatis are a major part of our daily diets hence, the amount of nutrition they carry plays a vital role in our overall health. Simply by using the True Elements Jowar Atta and True Elements Ragi Atta, you can make delicious Millet roti which are a good source of essential nutrients, including protein, fibre, vitamins (such as B vitamins like niacin and thiamine), and minerals (such as iron, magnesium, and phosphorus).
2. Millet Poha
Poha is one of the most common breakfast options consumed by the majority of the population. Just by switching the regular rice poha with the True Elements Jowar Poha, you can get 3x more minerals and vitamins in one meal. Jowar being naturally gluten-free, makes it a suitable alternative for individuals with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. True Elements Corn flakes can be another healthy breakfast option with millet-based flakes. These options are rich in fiber and can aid in a lot of digestive issues.
3. Millet Pancakes
Kids love pancakes, but making pancakes from scratch can sometimes be a tedious process. Healthy switches while keeping the nutritional value of the food intact. So it's time to ditch pancake mixes loaded with sugar, artificial flavourings, and refined flour. True Elements Chocolate Pancake Mix – a wholesome blend of oats, jowar flour, and natural alkalized cocoa powder. It contains lotus seeds instead of baking soda, jaggery in place of sugar, and alkalized dark chocolate instead of regular cocoa powder.
4. Millet Cheela
Small adjustments make a big impact! Embracing millets in your diet becomes effortless with the delightful addition of cheelas. The True Elements Whole Ragi, Bajra, and Jowar can be used as flour for the Cheela. These are three nutritious millets that offer a range of health benefits. From low glycemic index to high energy content, from being gluten-free to providing essential minerals, these millets not only aid in weight loss but can also result in maintaining blood sugar levels.
5. Millet Biscuits
Biscuits are convenient snacks, often associated with comfort and indulgence, making them a popular choice for dessert or a comforting treat. Usually, the key ingredients of these biscuits are maida and sugar but True Elements have come up with cereal biscuit as a healthy alternative to the regular biscuits with enhanced nutritional values to make them a perfect healthy snacking option. The biscuits are only made of Jowar, making them 10x more nutrition-rich in comparison to the refined options available in the market.
The call to "reboot ourselves by switching to millets" is a profound acknowledgement of the transformative power that incorporating millets into our diets can bring. The five effective ways to integrate millet into our daily meals showcase the versatility of these grains. From millet roti and poha to innovative pancake mixes and cheelas, they are enjoyable and nutritious options for every meal.
