3 Healthy & Fulfilling Curd Toast Recipes

If you are bored of eating sandwiches filled with mayo, it’s time you replace it with something healthier. So, I’m sharing three variants of my favorite curd toast recipe.

Often, we feel that sandwiches are not filling and wen end up overeating – which causes unhealthy weight gain. So, need to take the road less traveled and go with a homemade substitute with our secret ingredient – curd.

It is obvious that people are shifting from majorly consumed mayo sandwiches to curd sandwiches. This shift is slow, but it is happening.

Benefits of the Ingredients

Curd

As we all know, the curd is a probiotic, and it helps promote good microflora in the gut, thereby promoting gut health. It can also help improve bone health. Streptococcus thermophiles and Lactobacillus bulgaricus are the main bacteria used in the formation of yoghurt. Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) also helps reduce carcinogens, according to researchers. Benefits have been underlined in dental and bone health, hypertension and liver disease.

Multigrain bread

Multigrain bread provided some grains’ goodness, including flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, etc. Whole grains provide added B vitamins, iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, antioxidants and phytochemicals, Harvard Health states. Antioxidants in them protect your cells from damage.

Why not mayonnaise?

Mayo has become an integral part of our burgers and sandwiches. Vegetarian Mayo is made out of fat and might not be too healthy to consume frequently. On the other hand, Mayo has an imbalanced proportion of omega six and omega3 fatty acids, leading to heart disease risks. Salmonella, if passed, may also lead to food poisoning and other health conditions.

To substitute our favorite Mayo, we can use curd, hung curd, or vegan alternatives.

So, curd can be a great creamy substitute since lesser proportion can make us feel satiated. These creamy  and fulfilling curd toasts are easy to make. You can spice it up or keep it low key. You can mold them according to your preference.

Multigrain bread, curd, and your favorite veggies will make a great combination of a healthy yet delicious sandwich. You can consider it a scrumptious breakfast meal.
