We all know the best way to kickstart our day is by having a healthy and nutritious breakfast. Breakfast, as the name suggests means breaking the fast.
When we sleep at night, our body is fasting for eight-10 hours, thus it's absolutely important to feed our body with a nutritious meal when we get up to boost our metabolism.
Raw paneer for breakfast: Super rich in protein, having paneer for breakfast makes you feel full for longer. It gets digested slowly and increases the amount of feeling full hormones like GLP-1, PYY and CCK.
Apart from protein, paneer is also rich in fat, iron, calcium and magnesium, which makes it an even healthier choice.
