January 19 : When Twinkle Khanna’s Tweak India pitted home-cooked healthy food against biryani and mutton korma, Bollywood celebs took up the challenge and exposed their dabbas. We are not too surprised to find the health conscious celebs make healthy choices, kicking off the #WhatsInYourDabba movement. Take a cue and swap out the unhealthy with healthier choices.
Katrina Kaif has made healthy eating a way of life. By sneaking into her dabba, we found idli and chutney. Her idli is made up of fermented rice, urad dal and yoghurt, which she relishes with moringa spinach chutney, tomato and beetroot chutney, and coconut chutney.
Akshay Kumar’s healthy breakfast dabba included avocado on toast and chia pudding. It is not only healthy but also keeps him full for hours. He mashes ripe avocado with rapeseed oil and spreads it over barley bread slices. His chia pudding is made by soaking chia seeds in walnut milk, and then adding honey and seasonal fruits to it.
Eating healthy is Rakul Preet Singh’s lifestyle. Rakul turned vegan two months back and her dabba included spinach-jowar rotis, lady finger sabzi and green dal.
Fitness freak Malaika Arora’s vegan dabba contained zucchini noodles with red bell pepper sauce. She made the zucchini noodle in olive oil with crushed garlic, oregano, and chopped red bell pepper.
In her quest for vegan and healthy recipes, Twinkle Khanna revealed that her dabba contained beetroot tikkis. She made the tikkis with grated beetroot, grated paneer, and bread crumbs. She shallow fried the tikkis with minimum oil.
Sonali Bendre stays healthy by watching what she eats. Her dabba included traditional Maharashtrian sabudana khichdi with a twist. Instead of sabudana she uses sweet potato.
Neelam Kothari Soni shared her food mantra. Her lunch box contained sprout-moong and chana, which satisfies her hunger pangs. For breakfast, she eats spinach-cucumber-amla juice, and sprout-moong salad.
Bhumi Pednekar, who lost 21 kg in four months, chose the unfit to fit journey. In her dabba, we found avocado and chicken salad, almond flour roti, chicken curry, stir fried mushrooms and tofu tikki.
Sophie Choudry eats vegetarian at least twice a week. Her dabba included quinoa and sweet potato cutlets with avocado sauce, and carrot, mint and Thai red chilli salad.
Tusshar Kapoor eats simple vegetarian food for lunch. His dabba contained karele ka masala, toor dal and rotis.
