“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!

Quinoa can overcome the problem of droughts!

Droughts in the central and western part of India have been an unresolved issue for many years. The monsoon season has not blessed these regions with adequate rainfall leading to scarcity of water for agricultural and domestic purposes. The funds allocated to develop mitigation strategies have not been used efficiently. The gap between the problem and the solution is still at large. However, there still is a ray of hope. But what is this “ray of hope” which can benefit the farmers? Can you think of a crop which requires minimum water to grow? I am sure most of us would probably come up with wheat. But this crop needs the right temperature and about 12-15 inches of rain. How about Quinoa? This cash crop can adjust with any kind of soil, temperature and has minimum water needs. Organic Wellness is providing the seeds of this crop to end the suffering of the farmers community. They are an important part of the OW family and will get help no matter how adverse the situation is.
