Thought of preparing Maggi – but when there are too many myths revolving around Maggi, few of the people ask me, why do you prepare Maggi, but just like that I ask them Don’t you use Maggi! Personally, I have experienced in my neighborhood grocery shop when I see Maggi getting filled in the racks will be over in few hours and again they fill it, this keeps on going. Maggi is most of the people’s all-time favorite where there is no age restriction right from the toddles till the elders.

Balanced diet is one which provides all the nutrients in required amounts and proper proportions. I have seen people excluding carbohydrates and fats in their daily diet instead to stay fit. But how many of them knew that balanced diet is the combination of all these. And so, no food is healthy or unhealthy – even if you proceed eating only the so claimed healthy food, how will get the balanced diet and certainly it would lead you to health disorder. You can have everything but the main thing here is the right quantity, you need to have the right quantity of food at regular intervals since “Too much of anything is good for nothing”

The total fat (visible invisible) in the diet should provide between 20-30% of total calories. The visible fat intake in the diets can go up to 50kg/person/day based on the level of physical activity and physiological status. So, include everything in your diet but in proper proportion.

Coming to noodles, Maggi noodles balances the diet because of the protein, carbohydrates and fat content in it. When compared to vegetable cheese sandwich, veg biryani, dosa, Maggi has lesser amount of fat content in it.

Also, to maintain the quality, Maggi undergoes different stages before packing, like steaming, baking and then fried for few seconds.

Now let me share a quick, easy and a simple pancake recipe with Maggi noodles, that goes out well for breakfast or a tea-time snack for kids, after school.

Eggless Crepes with Caramelized Apple and Pear

Eggless Crepes with Caramelized Apple and Pear

Crepes was one of my favorite for almost 9 years, when I was there in U.K, I use to get a pack of crepes filled with chocolate syrup and munch most of the time.

Recently when I had crepes along with ice cream, thought why not to prepare crepes at home. Today was the right day for this preparation, as it was Thursday, so it’s Eggless Crepes. How come a crepe without filling and so here comes my caramelized apple, pear with organic coconut sugar by LYVA.

A perfect after school snacks, my kids loved it to the core. Not only my kids even had I loved it to the core. The Softness of the crepes and apple along with the crunchiness of the pear made the dish heavenly. Let me share the recipe…
