Makar sankranti

Makar sankranti & Happy Lohri
Makar sankranti is also known as KHICHADI (Indian dish made from rice and lentils) Sankranti because on this day the injunction to eat Khichadi , is generally observed by people. Seasonal crops become available. Ghee, and spices are used for making tasty nourishing Khichadi. Winter loosens its grip on shiver producing cold, admitting springtime that brings with it the chance for all round health improvement.

Also called- Til Sakranti
In addition to Khichadi, great importance is attached to the use of TIL (Sesame seeds) during Makar Sakranti. Therefore, this Sakranti is also called TIL Sankranti. People make Laddoos (round balls) from Til. Til oil is used for massaging.

It is said that Til emanates from Vishnu’s body and that the above described usage wash away all kinds of sins. Sakranti period is held to be very auspicious and any good deeds during this time will produce merits. Gifts of clothing, blankets etc., on this day are productive of merits in both this life and in the next life…

Meethe gur mein mil gaye til,
Udi patang aur khil gaye dil,
Har pal sukh aur har din shaanti,
Aap sab ke liye laaye
Makar Sankranti & Happy Lohri

Til-sesameseeds special

Sankranti special
Til and Calcium

Eating sweets like til revri, gajjak, laddu, chikki (candy) and patti, along with other good sources of calcium like milk and its products can help you in reducing your dosage of calcium supplements for the time being (keeping any medical problem in mind if any) as til is an important source of calcium.

Did you know that half a cup of sesame seeds contains three times more calcium than half a cup of whole milk? Just 100 gm of white sesame seeds provides approximately 1,000 mg of calcium.

Why do I feel hungrier in winters?

Why Do I Feel Hungrier In Winter?

"Simply put, when outdoor temperatures drop, your body temperature drops, and that’s what sets up the longing for foods that will warm you quickly. This is because eating helps to generate internal heat, subsequently leading to a rise in body temperature.

During winter, the body works harder and spends more energy just trying to keep you warm, so your desire to eat more comes from your body’s natural increase in energy use.

For this reason winter is the best season to lose weight.

Vitamin c enhances iron absorption

Vitamin C and Iron absorption

Vitamin C enhances iron absorption to as much as 30 percent. Combining 👐 heme (Heme iron is found in animal foods that originally contained hemoglobin, such as red meats🍖  fish🐠 , and poultry and is better absorbed) with nonheme iron (which is found primarily in fruits🍋🍊🍎 vegetables  🍆🥕dried beans, nuts and grain products) and/or foods rich in vitamin C in the same meal will significantly increase the total absorption of iron into the body.

How Vit C helps in Iron absorption?

Vitamin C helps with the transport and absorption of non-heme iron to the duodenum. Vitamin C is ascorbic acid. When ascorbic acid binds to the iron, it increases the stability of the compound. Non-heme iron becomes more stable and has increased solubility. Non-heme iron combined with ascorbic acid is more readily absorbed through the mucus membranes of the intestine.

How can this be done…….

For example, a grilled chicken sandwich with sliced tomato and roasted bell pepper on a whole-wheat bun is a combination of both types of iron as well as vitamin C that will give you a well-absorbed boost of iron for the day.

Again a glass of lemon juice or orange/mosambi 🍹 juice with poha, nachni daliya  or lunch/dinner will enhance iron absorption.
