Paneer is an excellent combination of taste and health.

Good source of protein – paneer is a good source of protein especially for vegetarians who do not get their intake from meat products. 100 gm of paneer yields about 18 gm of protein 

Keeps hunger pangs at bay – Since paneer is made of protein, it releases energy slowly in the body which means, it does not cause a spike in one’s blood sugar levels, nor does it give an instant boost which drops soon. It keeps one satiated for long after eating it which is why it can be used as evening snack to kill those hunger pangs.

Builds stronger teeth – Paneer also has calcium apart from protein. This helps in building stronger teeth and bones (to a certain extent). Though it is a milk product, it is better than milk when it comes to nutrition.

Helps burn more fat – Apart from being rich in protein and calcium, paneer is a great source of conjugated linoleic acid — a fatty acid which helps lose weight by increasing the fat burning process in the body.

Prevents deadly diseases – The humble paneer is in fact quite useful to prevent deadly diseases such as cancer by preventing the growth of cancer-causing cells in the body. Not just this, it also protects against heart disease by lowering the fat deposition in the arteries.

Paneer is an all-rounder when it comes to ways it can be eaten and tastes good almost in all forms including rolls, wraps, salads or curries.

This delicious Paneer Burji Whole Wheat Burritos is super healthy with a combination of paneer and vegetables and is super quick to prepare.
