Healthy food does not mean it has to be bland and boring, and Shilpa Shetty’s taste in food has proved it time and again.
The Baazigar actor recently shared an Instagram story, giving us a glimpse of her breakfast menu — healthy oats idli and chutney. Take a look:
Shilpa had earlier shown us how to make chilla and upma with oats. Known to be one of the healthiest grains, oats are gluten-free and rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. Oats not only help promote weight loss but also keep blood sugar levels under control.
