Like they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Turns out it’s true! Having a healthy and hearty breakfast keeps you energized all day. Plus, the calorie intake won’t cause you to gain weight, because you normally tend to use up the calories by the time it is afternoon.
When we hear the word ‘breakfast’, we often picture a spread of cereal, milk, fruit juice and toast on the breakfast table. Well I like to think beyond cereal and toast for two reasons. First, I am an Indian. I have been enjoying paratha, poha and sabudana for breakfast my entire life. Cereal is just an option for me that I really don’t like to pick, unless I am in hurry or insanely hungry!
Now I have a new favorite these days. I am trying to eat healthy and include sprouts in my diet. I love green moong bean like crazy! They are yummy! Easy to make and naturally delicious, I can eat these little magic beans every day! Stir-fried moong is simple and quick recipe. The whole green moong or mung bean is pretty high in nutrients. It is one of the best sources of protein for vegetarians.
This is a recipe for 2. For the purpose of measurement 1 cup = 250 ml. Now, let us start making this healthy breakfast recipe!
NOTE : When draining the boiled mung beans, do not discard the water. It has a high nutrient content and can be used for making curries or kneading the dough for chapatis.
