Thank you @twinklerkhanna for nominating me. Eating clean is not an option but a way of life for me. Here’s a glimpse at what made me spring into action this morning ? Sharing how you can also make my favourite avocado on toast and my chia pudding. It’s healthy, tasty, and keeps you full for hours, not to mention high in protein ? *Avocado on toast* Mash a ripe avocado. Add little olive oil, I like to add Rapeseed oil to it. Add a pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt, & a dash of chaat masala if you like things flavoursome. Spread the mashed avocado on two slices of toasted barley bread or any multigrain bread. Garnish with pomegranate. *Chia Pudding* Soak 3 teaspoons of chia seeds in walnut milk, overnight. Add a little honey or cinnamon to it. Top with seasonal fruits of your choice, preferably berries. Voila Bon Appetit ?? Now you know what’s in my dabba, I nominate @katrinakaif @bhumipednekar and @shikhardofficial to give me a peek inside their dabbas. It would be great to know more healthy food options. Don’t forget to share a photo with #WhatsInYourDabba and tag @TweakIndia

The social media trend continued with Malaika Arora uploading a video on Instagram as she tucked into a nutritious meal. She said:

“And my quest for vegan, healthy recipes continues. So here’s #whatsinyourdabba my style … Zucchini noodles with red bell pepper sauce.”

She also went on to share the method of making her delicious dish. Malaika nominated Shilpa Shetty, Sophie Choudry and Arjun Kapoor to join in the trend.

This innovative way of sharing nutritious recipes online is a great way to promote healthy eating. We wait to see whether the newly nominated celebrities show us what is in their dabbas.
