Energy Efficient: Soy Protein

Hello Foodies!

We all know how important it is to stay healthy and eat good food. Today we are back with this blog to discuss how one can replace milk, eggs and meat with soy protein diet.

soymilk3 (1)

Soy is a good alternative protein for adults. It also plays important role for healthy heart. Soya is rich in nutrients like PUFAs (poly-unsaturated fatty acids). They are amazing for heart health. They have good potential to lower blood cholesterol. Soy being a good source of omega-3, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants make it a complete heart healthy food.

Why Soy Protein?

Soy protein is the only commercially-viable plant protein that has been recognized as a complete, high-quality source of protein.  Soy protein’s quality ranks up there with milk, egg and other animal-based sources and interestingly, it has a low carbon footprint. Soy is very efficient to produce, requiring less water, energy and land than animal-based proteins like milk and meat. Consuming a vegan or vegetarian diet, rich in soy protein, is an excellent way to reduce your impact on planet, not just greenhouse gases, but, land and water use.

Soy milk is definitely the best alternative to normal milk. Soy milk has been the most popular non-dairy substitute for decades because its nutrition profile closely resembles that of cow’s milk.  Soy milk offers about 7 grams of protein per cup, compared to cow milk’s 8 grams per cup. Most, but not all, brands are fortified with calcium and vitamin D, so be sure to look at the nutrition label to find these nutrient values. Soy milk comes in flavored varieties, such as vanilla, and also comes in lighter and lower-calorie versions.

The toughest part in planning an abroad trip is the accommodation as we all know how crucial part our accommodation or stay plays during any of our trips , whether short or long, hills or beaches , desert or forest etc all we need a comfortable stay for rest .

I visited phuket earlier this month and stayed at property called Phuvaree Resort and believe me guys i was stunned by the beauty of this resort . The resort is huge in space with some great clean and comfortable rooms . I was welcomed in a very warm way by some well mannered staff and a great refreshing welcome drink .

The swimming pool of this resort was the highlight for sure as it offers crystal clear water for some great refreshing time .

The property is located nearby to the evergreen bangla market i.e WALKING STREET OF PHUKET and you can go with your legs if weather permits (during my time it was very hot and humid so i preferred tuk tuk) .

The rooms here are good in space and offers a lot like a balcony , almirah with safe , a clean wash room and obviously a comfy bed with 24 hrs helpline phone . The interiors of the room were eye catching and everything was best as it can get . The room service was super quick and withing minutes of call someone was there at the assistance .

The resort also offer a stunning poolside restaurant CHOMVAREE for some great food and drinks with an awesome view . The breakfast also being served here and a huge variety was there to eat from and everything was fresh and delicous .

A gym was also there for the fitness freaks (though i am not the one) with a loads of exercise machines and equipment and a trainer .

The resort has also maintained the natural greenery with perfection and it seriously looks great .

I would the staff , the management and everyone who is working in this resort is giving his/her 100 percent as i have not experienced anything weird in my 2 nights stay . The cost per night is very reasonable say around INR 4500 with breakfast . Most of the staff understands English which is also a plus point .

The lady at the reception was so helpful in planning our outings in PHUKET and once she even arranged a taxi for us without any hesitation.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES OR COUPLES TO STAY HERE WHENEVER YOU  VISIT IN PHUKET .

I would give full marks to everything here and everyone who is taking care of the property and the customers.

Soy Protein Is Heart Healthy For Adults

Hello Foodies!

We all know how important it is to stay healthy and eat good food. Today we are back with this blog to discuss about the importance of Soy Protein for Adults.

Soy Protein 2soymilk3 (1)

Soy is a good alternative protein for adults. It also plays important role for healthy heart. Soya is rich in nutrients like PUFAs (poly-unsaturated fatty acids). They are amazing for heart health. They have good potential to lower blood cholesterol. Soy being a good source of omega-3, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants make it a complete heart healthy food.

Why Soy Protein?

-Healthy Protein and Fiber

Soy foods contain high levels of healthy protein and fiber. Fiber helps to reduce bad cholesterol. Plus, soy is a much better source of protein for your heart than animal-derived foods that are rich in saturated fats.

– Soyfoods Can Lower Your Bad Cholesterol

Soyfoods are a tasty way to lower your bad cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol. Soyfoods also include dietary fiber, high quality protein, iron, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

Soyfoods Can Replace Less Healthy Foods
Soyfoods are a source of high-quality protein and, unlike many other sources of high-quality protein, soyfoods are low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free
So try a soy burger and you won’t be able to tell the difference, but your heart will! 😛

Wait no more and switch to soya because- “Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings.”- Publilius Syrus

Our Food Trail At Pacific Mall

Hello Foodies!

Delhi winters are the perfect excuse to indulge in your favorite foods. Yes, your body braving the chilly winds really needs a steaming hot plate of jalebi with rabri. It’s not a guilty pleasure; it’s a dietary supplement.

It’s also a good time to go out and explore some new places. A few weeks ago, I headed out to Pacific Mall, Tagore Garden with fellow food bloggers. If you live in Delhi, it’s a great place to shop and eat. This place packs in 35 options for food! From authentic Punjabi flavors to experimental continental, there’s a lot to choose from when you are in the mood to indulge your taste buds. Sounds like a foodie’s paradise, right? It is probably the only place in Delhi that offers so much variety in great food.  

Though we were previously familiar with the numerous food options at Pacific Mall, it wasn’t until recently that we got a taste of the diverse offerings. The occasion was an exclusive food walk and cookout with celebrity food blogger Kunal Vijaykar who had flown in from Mumbai. I have followed him on television for a long time and was looking forward to seeing him in person. I don’t think there’s anyone else who comes close to talking about food in such a witty manner. He is so effortlessly hilarious!

We got to see some of his charming wit during our food walk at Pacific Mall. We also had a chance to see the chefs in action. It’s always good to get a peek into everything that goes into making a tantalizing dish.

Here’s an overview of the places at the mall where we got to try some lovely food:

 

  • The Punjab Grill

 

The Punjab Grill presents a fine dining experience right in the middle of a bustling Pacific Mall. We got to taste champ tajdar, tandoori murg and paneer tikka. It felt like we had authentic Punjabi flavors after a really long time. The service was prompt and the ambience was very soothing. It’s the perfect dining destination for a mellow evening with your loved ones.

 

  • Castle’s Barbeque

 

Dining here truly felt like dining at a medieval castle. We loved the play of lights and shadows at Castle’s Barbeque as well as the variety of flavors. Make the most of the live grill and don’t miss the variety of desserts here.

Must Try Dishes-

Kalmi Kabab – The texture of the kebabs is right on point here.

Dal Makhani- The dish had a rich taste, thanks to the extensive simmering and use of mixed spices.  

 

  • Café Delhi Heights

 

Located on the second floor of the mall, Cafe Delhi Heights has a really cool vibe. We couldn’t get enough of the unique mix of flavors here. We tried the pan fried noodles and grilled chicken breast; we loved them both. The décor and ambience of this place is perfect for a casual outing with your friends.

 

  • The Beer café

 

This chain has been our favorite for a long time. We tried this outlet for the first time and the Shahajahani mutton seekh kebab won our hearts. The bhuna chaat also presented an explosion of flavors.

 

  • Chili’s

 

If you love American and Mexican food, you are possibly already familiar with Chili’s. The chain has a popular outlet at Pacific Mall. We looked forward to trying the Mexican food and savored the strong flavors in the quesadillas and fajitas. Just loved them! Though there are a variety of other flavors on offer, the spices and herbs really got our attention.  

 

  • Biryani Blues

 

The widely-acclaimed biryani specialists served us a treat in a handi. The taste left us wondering about how Biryani Blues had cracked the code for the amazing biryani and kebabs. This joint gave us the best Hyderabadi biryani experience in Delhi.

 

  • Jamie Oliver’s Italian

 

It’s hard to resist the aroma of a freshly baked pizza and Italian herbs, right? At Pacific Mall, Jamie Oliver’s is the place to enjoy the finest Italian flavors. The vintage décor and lighting make for a very unique experience. We devoured the Porcini Penne with mixed mushrooms and the margherita pizza with mozzarella cheese. To finish off, we had the cheesecake. A hearty meal with very fine flavors!  

Have you been to Pacific Mall? With an outdoor zone for kids and several places to chill, it is perfect for a day out with friends or family. Do share with us your favorite places from there!

Love,

The Foodies Express
