Moong Dal Benefits as a post workout meal

  • The best way to consume moong beans is in the form of sprouts. The nutritional content of moong beans is highest when they have become three to four days old sprouts. You can make a chat or salad from these sprouts with seasonal raw vegetables like tomato, beetroot, onion, coriander, mint, lemon etc. 
  • Sprouting increases the availability of proteins in moong beans. The protein content of moong increases by 30%, i.e., 100 gm of unsprouted moong contains 24.9 gm protein, but on sprouting it increases to 32 gm.
