FOOD AND HEALTH – A BOND OF HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!

Gone are the days when people use to wake up with the crows of the roosters at 4 am. Gone are the days when morning breakfast meant to have fresh milk from the cows along with some freshly plucked fruits from the trees. Gone are the days when work was exclusive yet limited to fields where people used to spent whole days working in the lap of mother nature.

Now, it’s only about ‘mobile’ alarms, heavy lefty meals and long sitting hours in front of laptops.

Life has no meaning now and people have one single objective – ‘We have to earn loads of money’ . Ok.I agree and I am with you for that but buddy – I have a question. What if you have quintals of gold, trillions of cash,properties in every single country but 20 days of your month are spent at hospitals and half of your monthly income is spent paying fees of doctors and medicines? Tell me! Will you say that ‘I am living my life king sized’ ? 🙂 Please be honest to at least yourself! 😀

Today, life only revolves around electronic gadgets, long sitting hours, regular munching and lavish multi cuisine buffets. We have forgotten the meaning of healthy food and healthy lifestyle. It’s all about running after money now. Nothing is left. Nothing! But yes, if you are alarmed at right time, still you can make your life worthy. Worthy in terms of good health and broad smiles.

Like every other person I will not say that – Don’t eat this and don’t eat that. Sorry. I am not so rude and being a foodie myself I will not do injustice with you but yes being a foodie as well as doctor’s daughter, I will love to recommend some very simple lifestyle changes which you can do at the blink of your eye and can benefit a lot.

Should we start? 🙂 Get pumped!

The very first thing which I will recommend is to –

  1. Remove every product from your fridge which reads ‘ Processed Juice or Mix in 1 glass of water ‘. Yes. The one regular thing which hampers health is the processed juices which do bring smiles on the lips but they stay forever on the hips. Be it powdered, processed, cholesterol free or whatever…trust me, they are the most harmful for your health. The dissolved sugars in them makes your blood thick and leads to many problems like obesity, diabetes etc.


Lolzzzz 😀 – You are thinking na that if you remove these juices how can you have your quick breakfast every morning? 😀 Don’t worry. I have answer to that also! Have a glass of ‘Buttermilk aka Chaach’ which can be prepared in a nick of time and utmost healthy drink with no sugar. 🙂buttermilk-912760_1280

Recipe below: 

Ingredients

1/2 cup – Fresh curds

1 cup – Cold water

1 tsp Freshly grated ginger

1/2 tsp Powdered cumin

Salt – According to taste

1 tsp Flax seeds powder (It helps in lowering the BP)

Method

Put everything together in a blender. Churn it for 2 mins. Pour it in glass. Add ice.

Fresh Chaach is ready! 🙂

Can anything be better than this? I believe No! 🙂

2. Fill your fridge with fresh vegetables and fruits. Now you must be thinking about the regular sabzi and roti. No relax! Food palettes should be taken care of.  😀 Prepare regular Indian dinners can be prepared daily but along with it, make sure you have some exotic stuff too. Now for that, my favourite recipe is Russian Salad.

Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups of chopped fresh vegetables ( Carrots, Beans, Potatoes, Peas )

2 cups of chopped fresh fruits ( Apples, Pears, Pomegranate seeds )

1 tbsp sliced black olives

1 tbsp fresh parsley and basil

2 tbsp Eggless Diet Mayonnaise

1 tsp powdered sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp mixed dried herbs

Method

Steam the vegetables for 5 minutes.Turn off the flame. Mix all the ingredients together. Garnish it with dried herbs. Arrange it on fresh lettuce leaves. Serve it chilled! 🙂

  1. We could all be happier if we measured quality of life not by the size of our bank balance, house or car, but by the connection we have with the people around us, and the environment we live in… Connecting with whole food is such a great place to start. Xxx

  2. This is my kind of post. But Kriti, I’ve tested it. I removed gluten and sugar from my diet and a month or so later, I fainted in my washroom. So, now I’ve gone back to the ‘normal Punjabi diet’.

    But I really like healthy lifestyle stuff. I do regular walks and steer clear of junk food.

    Loved,Loved, Loved this post!!! And that Russian salad looks yum!!!

      1. I would not suggest you to remove gluten or sugar entirely but yes excess of everything is bad. You can have all the things but in limited quantity followed by exercise! 🙂

    With the whole thing that seems to be developing inside this subject matter, all your points of view happen to be relatively radical. Having said that, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your entire strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to us that your remarks are not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not even thoroughly convinced of your argument. In any case I did enjoy examining it.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Lowell.. I am not sure what made you think like this but yes one thing which I again observed is every person have different views for one single thing and in that case, I really respect your examination! 🙂
