Animal vs Plant Protein

Before even beginning to talk about which protein is better suited for the human body, let us re-run the old concepts about Protein, just once more…

Proteins! P.C.: http://goo.gl/hBrgIZ

Proteins!
P.C.: http://goo.gl/hBrgIZ

What is ‘protein’?

The term ‘Protein’ refers to a molecular constitution in the food that we consume that can be broken down to form amino acids. The human body requires about twenty different types of amino acids, out of which only 9 the body is incapable of producing and needs to extract from the food eaten.

Hair to Nails... P.C.: http://goo.gl/1UY3xB

Hair to Nails…
P.C.: http://goo.gl/1UY3xB

But why is ‘protein’ important?

Proteins are the body’s basic building blocks and everything in our body are made up of proteins, right from our hair, skin to our nails. Thus the body requires a basic amount of daily protein intake to meet up the maintainance of the body. But the production of amino acids are require the influence of other elements like vitamins and mineral salts. Together, they pump up our system to function to the best of the physical abilities.

Plant protein - Legumes and Cereals P.C.: http://goo.gl/JUVe3e

Plant protein – Legumes and Cereals
P.C.: http://goo.gl/JUVe3e

Now comes the question on food and how to maintain the intake of protein and which one is better, animal protein (non-vegetarian food) or plant protein (vegan food)?

It is a proven fact that animal protein comes with additions like saturated fat and cholesterol that contribute relentlessly to heart-diseases where as in plants, almost all plants have proteins which come with the gifts of antioxidants, fibers, mineral salts, vitamins and ‘photochemicals’. Needless to say, there are absolutely no side-effects for not consuming animal protein but for every ounce of animal protein you’d eat, there have to be a variety of vegetables to ‘balance’ out the effects!

Quinoa Summer Salad P.C.: http://goo.gl/DF1YyI

Quinoa Summer Salad
P.C.: http://goo.gl/DF1YyI

Foods like lentils, quinoa, buckwheat, kale, peans, beans, all sorts of nuts, soy, chick peas and many such foods are more than sufficient for the human body to thrive and live healthy. Plant protein is known and acknowledged to have almost no side-effects at all!

Noodle Bar is a rather classic restaurant that serves aunthentic Pan Asian food. Be it Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Malaysian or tastes from other countries of Oriental Asia, Noodle Bar features at least one, if not more, of its native recipes for your plate. The rich red and black interiors, doted by hanging lanterns and dimmed spot lights create quite a romantic ambiance. Though sometimes, when the restaurant is full, you may feel a bit crammed up, but that is rare. The food served is wonderfully fresh and aromatic. The deft chefs replicate the traditional recipes as closely as possible, leaving you no chance for a frown!

Two Great Gourmet Restaurants in Kolkata

I have a fascination for gourmet restaurants that I could never understand why. The way simple culinary preparations are presented in an appetizing way, with special effects, artwork and effects, all created with food and edible ingredients amazes me! I simply love undoing the presentation, taking care to look carefully and enjoy every moment of my experience. Here I list out two of my most favourite, tried and tested (tasted) restaurants in Kolkata that are really great and on the level of perfection!!

Lamb in Black Pepper Sauce P.C.: http://goo.gl/QYwftL

Lamb in Black Pepper Sauce
P.C.: http://goo.gl/QYwftL

My first and permanent preference is always The Hub, nestled in the Taj Bengal in Alipore, Kolkata. The Hub has always catered to my cravings with perfect artistry and taste. Be it in the lavish buffet they host every day or be it a la carte orders, The Hub has never ceased to beguile me! When you’re here on your special occasion, they make sure that your experience, your photographs and your memories are the best ones you’ll store. The cake they brought to our table was so unique, beautiful and tasty, that I lost myself in my bites! The food that we opted for came in so many delicately plated shapes and sized, colours and elements that took me quite by surprise! It was amazing!

Zafrani Malai Paneer Tikka P.C.: http://goo.gl/6P1cpc

Zafrani Malai Paneer Tikka
P.C.: http://goo.gl/6P1cpc

The second one is the sweet Guchhi – in the Hyatt Regency in Salt Lake, Kolkata. Zafrani Malai Paneer Tikka and Vegetarian & Non-Vegetarian Kebab Platter, Jheenga Nisha, Kandhari Murgh, Guchhi Dal, Lucknowi Nalli Nehari, Kesar Pista Kulfi and Rasmalai are among the most popular grubs. Since it is a five star property, the ambiance and décor needs no explanation! But yes, I’ll tell you one thing, the tree in the centre and glass walls that sort of join the outdoors and you inside, and such nice food, you really have a sitting near the Bodhi Tree type of feeling! Guchhi is the perfect restaurant for a romantic date or a quiet couple dinner, alone-time and also for business meetings! I love visiting there for some me-time, though!

Cilantro – Trident, Gurgaon

I am one of you… I have a great deal of guilt after I devour a magnificent Tiramisu or a delectable Bolognese Pizza with some chilled beer while cheering a game on the big screen in front of me! During moments of better self-control, I’m conscious of what I eat , which is code for “can’t eat in a restaurant”!

My best friend on the other hand works out religiously, yet is never able to fully enjoy a tasty, wholesome meal in a restaurant only because she knows the meal will be filled with unhealthy calories. She instead chooses to stick to salads and juices and soups! The two of us are quite contrasting in our eating habits but the point where we both agree is our dedication to being calorie-conscious! When does this stop?

Now!

Cilantro, in Trident, Gurgaon has come up with a special event for people like us! It is totally (Pardon the pun) Calorific
