Steam the salad ingredients for seven-eight minutes till the veggies and sprouts become tender. I use a steel colander and layer the ingredients based on the amount of time it will take to steam. So first layer is of the sprouts, peanuts, broccoli, then spinach followed by chopped dates (the greens and browns makes it a beautiful color coordination and is pleasing to eyes). Then place the colander in a pot of boiling water and let it steam. Try these delicious recipes to make weight loss fun.

After eight minutes turn off the gas and now add paneer, avocado, chopped almonds, half of the chopped Basil, coriander and mint leaves and cover the lid and let it cool off. Here are five foods that will help you lose weight.
