It is the weekend now. You are craving something delicious but are confused because it might disturb your weight loss goals. We have got a perfect solution for this problem. How about we tell you that you can enjoy a delicious risotto today and remain guilt-free?
We have got this amazing Beetroot Risotto Served with Crumbled Goat Cheese and Crunchy Walnuts. It would be loved by all- be it you, your family or friends. Beets give this dish a stunning color while the walnuts provide the sweetness and consistency, besides filling up on the necessary nutrient part.
Beetroot, especially its juice, can help your skin glow and become more attractive. It purifies blood, strengthens the digestive system, and clears out the blemishes on the skin by removing dead cells from the skin, thus making it look soft and supple.
A normal-sized serving of goat cheese offers about 5 gms of protein and nutrients like calcium and phosphorus. One should include this dairy product in one’s regular diet because it is full of healthy fats and medium-chain fatty acids that provide good cholesterol (HDL) and help in weight loss.
Walnuts are full of polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. These cut down bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol, and also control inflammation. Eating this dry fruit regularly promotes a better digestive system and even cuts down the risk of several cancers.
With so many health benefits, we welcome you to try this healthy recipe in the breakfast today!
