All of us have heard of superfoods. Every year different products are given this label and new foods are added. While this is happening, there are countless foods that are stable and humble, but as nutritious as superfoods. However, they don’t get the same amount of attention. Let’s call them supersaver foods, suggests dietitian Leah McGrath, RD, LDN. These varieties remain a part of various recipes because of their adaptability and compatibility. They are cheap and usually shelf-stable. These convenient and well-known supersaver foods are easy to find in any supermarket all year round.
Whole wheat tortillas
Make yourself a healthy breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs. And serve it with some Parmesan cheese on a whole wheat tortilla. Vegetarians can make a tortilla wrap with hummus, pieces of paneer and vegetables. Whole wheat tortillas provide a significant amount of complex carbohydrates and fiber.
For a filling and quick snack, go for Greek yogurt with chopped bananas or apples. If you want something extra sweet, add honey or maple syrup. A busy morning can consist of a quick-to-prepare smoothie with Greek yogurt, milk, frozen bananas, or other seasonal fruits.

Do you have a busy schedule and miss breakfast? Go for the unsweetened for a healthier option. Use a protein-enriched bowl of oatmeal and peanut butter. Soak oatmeal in milk the night before, stir in a tablespoon of peanut butter, and add some fruits like banana or dry fruits like raisins and dates for sweetness. In the same way, you can also make a peanut butter and ripe banana sandwich with wheat bread
This super-efficient food is ideal for any meal of the day. While an overnight oats dish or smoothie churned with fruit is perfect for breakfast, lunch can be an Indian khichdi replacing the rice. For a fancy dinner, try making oatmeal pancakes or Frankie with oat flour. Before the last, add eggs to make it high in protein.

In India, steamed sweet potatoes seasoned with chaat masala and some lime juice are popular as a street food. This root vegetable cooks very quickly and is incredibly adaptable. You can steam, boil, roast, grill, bake or bake them. They are ideal as a side dish, but also in salads and soups. Use sweet potato chunks, quinoa, and plenty of vegetables for a healthy one-pot meal.
