Moringa: The All-in-One Leaf

How often does a doctor tell us, “You have a deficiency of these vitamins. I suggest you take these pills once everyday for 2 months and then come back for a check up.” What if there was a simpler way? Why take pills unnecessarily which may or may not have side effects. Let’s go back to out traditional Indian roots to find the answer.

Moringa leaves.

Or popularly known as drumstick leaves. Yes, those sticks that we occasionally remove from our sambhar. That must have rung a bell. The leaves are more beneficial than the sticks. It is the best nutritional supplement. You must be wondering if it’s so nutritious why isn’t it used or widely popular? Well, it tastes bitter. So you can’t cook the leaves and eat it as a salad. But there is an alternative. There’s no need to consume many leaves altogether. You can get the leaves in powdered form. All you have to do is add 1 tsp in your yogurt, smoothie, salad, curry etc. It will no longer taste bitter and you will also get your required nutrients. Sounds easy enough?

What is the origin of Organic Farming?

Organic farming has no origin. It was a conventional approach before humans delved into chemistry and found fertilisers. Natural ways were the way to go before the Second World War. After a lot of research, farmers started using chemicals on their farm lands. That was when the Organic Movement rose in Europe. Both the farmers and the consumers revolted against the industrialisation of agriculture. Consumers became more conscious about their health and well being, and preferred organically grown produce. They had realised the harmful effects of these chemicals. This conscious started spreading to different parts of the world which led to an increase in the demand of organically produced fruits and vegetables. As Economics dictates, farmers switched to organic farming. That is why we see such fancy packaging of organic products with a USDA Organic logo in most of the retail stores.

Not just humans, organic farming supports all species!

Let’s not be selfish by thinking of just the mankind. There are many other species who reside with us on the same land. We are all a part of the same food chain, remember? This practice of agriculture encourages biodiversity. It preserves the natural habitat for all the fauna. If they are healthy, they naturally become pest controllers. No need to hire pest control now. So farmers can save money on that note. On the other hand, fertilisers support the growth of algae blooms, a.k.a red tide, which release toxins for microbes in the soil. This results in infertility of the soil. Sometimes it can turn the colour of water into red (now you know why it is also called ‘red tide’). Although, algae is considered a vital part of the food chain, this kind is rather deadly. So let’s do what is in our control and try our best to avoid fertilisers and pesticides.

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.

How about a slice of “organic” Red Velvet Cake?

From time to time, we all ache for a rich, creamy and buttery slice of red velvet cake. Funny thing is, this dessert does not have its own flavour. It is just red food colouring. How about we replace this food colouring with a natural agent? Say beets or raspberries. Just boil them and get natural colouring. These are more friendly for your dessert and your body will be grateful to you. Synthetic colouring can cause allergies, bladder cancer and brain tumours. Now you can enjoy that cake without getting worried about how it can harm you……except the calories maybe. For orange, you can use carrots. This veggie gives a deep orange colour. Yellow can be made by using turmeric or saffron flowers. Normally, we do not use green food colouring but spinach will get the best results. For blue and purple, you can take red cabbage, blueberries or blackberries. All these tactics make your food look and taste beautiful. And if you choose organically grown vegetables, even better! You’re in for a healthier lifestyle.

Organic farming is another thing which pops up in the mind. Not using the pesticides and insecticides will do the world a whole lot of good.

Basically all of you will have an idea by now. The idea being, choose wisely. Give it a nice thought. Think about both the sides. What is good in this and that as well as bad in this and that.

And at the end of the day, life is shaped by the choices you make. Good or bad, it’s your choice.

Awakening Indians: An initiative by Organic Wellness

“Awakening Indians” started as an internship project, but today it is one of the main projects for Organic Wellness.

As we are associated with the farmers, the idea behind Awakening Indians is to educate their children, as their family means our family. A typical day here does not mean rigorous lessons in the classroom. Our day consists of drawing, reading, writing, watching cartoons and playing sports. These activities develop creativity, focus and thinking ability. They are also fun ways of learning. These kids are extremely enthusiastic, punctual and avid learners. You will not believe how many things you can end up learning by spending time with them!
