There are those in between times of the day when you crave to snack on something. And that’s when, atleast for me, all my resolution of not eating junk gets thrown out of the window. At such times, it helps to have some dips handy which you can pair with vegetable sticks and satisfy your cravings. Parina (from Neiki.in) uses such dips when she has a get together and dinner is getting late. Instead of eating some junk, she prefers this yoghurt with some carrot and cucumber sticks to keep her going till dinner is served.
Parina is certified in Personal Training from National Academy of Sports Medicine. With the the motto ‘Give More. Get More’, she designed NEIKI, her fitness program, wherein she strives to reduce injury risk and prepare our bodies to bear the impact they need to. On this excursion, her endeavour is to help people stand upright – physically and mentally.
It is not just recipes that Parina is sharing with us – it is a lot of other information too. Head over to my YouTube channel to see all that we discuss around food and nutrition! Cheers to a balanced and healthy start to 2021..:)
