“I promise to exercise daily and eat healthy.”

Almost everybody says this on the 1st of January. That’s right, it is only said but not done. It is not that easy. How can you eat healthy when there are so many delicacies to devour on? How about rephrasing it to “I’ll cut down my consumption of junk food”. It will be easier. Or you can just add a little nutritional supplement to your regular diet. For example, sprinkling Moringa Powder in your salad or smoothie, taking Ashwagandha on a regular basis (for over all well being), drinking green tea, et cetera. You can switch to Quinoa which is a replacement for rice. It has high protein, iron and manganese content. Many people are not sure about how to cook the grain.

So here’s a recipe.

1. Wash 1 cup of Quinoa properly.

2. Cook in a pressure cooker with double the quantity of water i.e. 2 cups.

3. Let the pressure build in the cooker, then lower the flame and let it cook for 10 minutes.

4. Take a pan, add 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter), 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped tomato, green chillies and peas. You can add any vegetables of your choice.

5. Add 1 tsp of Garam Masala (blend of Peppercorns, Cloves, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Bay Leaf and Cumin) and 1/2 tsp of Amchoor powder (dried mango powder).

6. Add the boiled Quinoa.

7. Add salt as per taste.

8. Let it cook for 2 more minutes.

9. Serve and garnish with coriander or mint leaves. 

Wish you a very Happy New Year!

Organic food reduces toxicity in our body

People go back and forth discussing why organically grown food is good for us and why we should consume it. The question which remains unanswered is, “how does organic food reduce toxicity in the human body?”.

A study was conducted where adults were asked to consume only organic food for one whole week. After the tests were done, the results showed that the level of toxic waste in the body had dropped by 89% . Now that is a pretty significant and big number. This toxicity is an Organophosphate pesticide or just OP Pesticide. It can lead to problems in growth, fertility and development of the body. It can cause autism (a mental condition where forming relationships becomes difficult) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a condition which affects concentration power and focus) in the offsprings.

Sounds like a good reason to eat organic food, eh?

Sorry, can’t drink tea. I am on a diet.

I am sure we must have heard this statement like a hundred times. People who want to lose weight restrict themselves, or at least try their level best, from consuming calories.  Most of them prefer switching to herbal tea since it increases the body metabolism and burns fat. Fat oxidation increases, reduces risk of getting cancer, boosts immunity, helps to concentrate, brings down sugar level, lowers chances of heart disease, et cetera. So is there a need to exercise? Why not just consume herbal tea like 10 times a day? Well, if only things were that easy. Green tea does help, but it is vital to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. But if you crave for a bar of chocolate, after all who does not, here’s a way to devour it without feeling any guilt. Just have it immediately after you work out, or an hour before you work out. Because that’s when your metabolism is high and it burns the calories instead of storing it as fat. Life just got easier.  So you exercise, drink herbal tea and maybe cheat sometimes by breaking the no-junk-food rule.
