Fitness and Health Purposes: This infused with spices and green vegies meal provides your body with essential vitamins and minerals for proper function and performance. The combination of carrots and broccoli will give you 100% of your daily needs of vitamin C in just a single portion. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can be beneficial for removing free radicals and toxic chemicals, which build up when working out. These will slow down your recovery process, so that’s why it is important to incorporate not just green vegies but all color vegies into your diet. Green leaf spices such as basil has strong anti-inflammatory effects and can aid in cardiovascular health. This is not all, basil itself also protects your stomach and may aid better digestion, as well as it has been used in many dishes for its unique flavor, so make sure to get some spices into your fitness meals to not only look them nice, but to infuse them with nutrients and flavor. Other ingredients such as cumin, coriander and tandoori mix have their unique health benefits. It is a common misconception that bodybuilders should eat plain food, plain chicken, plain rice, plain potatoes etc… yes you do need to provide your body with proper food and nutrients, but it also needs to absorb other healthy nutrients such as antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, whose you can find in high amounts in vegies, fruits and spices!
The dish is low on fats, which is very important when it comes down to digestion as high amounts of fats ingested with a meal can slow down digestion, which is something you are not looking into it after a workout, as you need to get glucose and amino acids in your bloodstream as fast as possible to begin the recovery process.
