The majority of sweet, calorie-rich, and doughy foods are of the white variety, which is why this genre has received a poor name. We are here to gently remind you to leave discrimination to the uneducated throughout this season.
Here is a lot of excellent in white, including milk, paneer, garlic, and white beans:
1) Mother’s Dairy
Dairy is the first food category that comes to mind when we think about healthy white. Dairy products, such as cheeses, paneer, dahi, and chaas, are full in calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamins. Of course, the many types of yoghurt also contain a lot of probiotics. If you are not lactose intolerant, we advise you to benefit from this high-quality protein and incorporate it into your diet on a regular basis.
When it comes to the goodness of white and dairy, Arjun Ahluwalia of Buddha Belly concurs with us: “The beauty of dim sum and Cantonese cuisine in general is that they reflect the delicate balance not only between relatively low carbs and high protein, but also between healthy portions of white foods and wholesome ingredients. At Buddha Belly, we creatively combine delicate wonton wrappers with copious amounts of fresh, crisp veggies, along with nutritious white foods like cottage and parmesan cheese to allow one to achieve their recommended daily intake of dairy.
2) White Fish
Did you know that women from Japan have the longest life expectancies? Their stringent diet, which primarily consists of raw white fish, veggies, and green tea, is the cause. White fish are excellent providers of complete protein, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iodine, and fluorine and are low in fat and calories. Dietary recommendations advise consuming at least eight ounces of fish per week.
3) Onions and Garlic
Because of their strong flavour, grilled, roasted, or sautéed garlic and onions not only offer a flavorful kick to practically every dish but also lessen the need for salt as a condiment. Your blood pressure and cholesterol are kept under control as a result.
Healthy whites have traditionally been prominent items on deli menus. White beans, corn, potatoes, onions, garlic, mushrooms, turnips, and cauliflower are all excellent sources of dietary fiber, magnesium, and potassium—nutrients that are frequently deficient in our diets.
Speaking more specifically on one of our all-time fave ingredients, he continues, “Garlic, the healthiest food on the planet, is the new ‘it’ everywhere. Garlic has a remarkable range of benefits, some of which include its ability to fight cancer and protect the heart. The whole roasted garlic pod is offered with most grilled and roasted items at Indigo Deli and gives the cuisine it is given with a touch of distinctive sweetness, smokiness, and character. It has a dedicated following, and it’s common to hear rumours about more pods coming soon.
