Curd with salt or honey is a perfect food item to keep that metabolism running and the digestive system on its feet. Avoid jaggery or sugar, couple it with black salt, table salt or honey instead-and a bowl of curd is the perfect conclusion to any meal. Bust the myth that curd should be avoided in winters. At room temperature, it can be consumed at any time of the year. Team it with dal, rajma or any other lentils or pulses, and you are worthy of a pat on the back for having made a healthy meal part of your regime.
