India’s love affair with chaat is fairly old and a long-standing one. How we love the lip-smacking medley of flavours bursting in our mouth. And let’s admit it, we are all guilty of tucking in a little too much of the tangy goodness, despite knowing the consequences. But what if we tell you that we have a chaat recipe that may not make you so guilty after all? In fact, this chaat may prove to be a healthy addition to your high-protein diet. Confused? Do not be. Chaat is essentially a mixture tossed in a lip-smacking array of chutney and sauces. Just like salads, chaat gives you enough room to experiment. You can throw just about anything in the mix and you have a winner (think: moth beans, sprouts, pomegranate seeds, yogurt etc.)

High-Protein Diet: Egg Chaat Recipe For Weight Loss
Protein helps induce the feeling of satiety. If we feel full, we would naturally steer clear of mindless bingeing. Eating mindfully is linked to weight loss. Protein is also known to regulate hunger hormone, and check cravings. Eggs are dubbed as the best bio-available source of protein. In other words, our body finds it much easier to assimilate protein out of eggs as compared to other foods. About 100 grams of boiled eggs contain 13 grams of protein. As we all know, eggs are super versatile and impress in every avatar. You can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and guess what, you can even use a handful of them to dish out some delightful chaat.
