 Organic or no (leafy veges)
 How to know if the greens we buy are pesticide free or organic

If you see a few holes in the leaves of the greens you are buying, pick up the bunch; it means it is not heavily 'pesticided' .

And one very important tip to follow with greens is wash them well and after washing give a final rinse of salt water for five to seven minutes. This helps remove germs and residue.

How to know if the fruits and veges we buy are pesticide free or organic



Many a times my clients ask me how to know if the foods we buy are pesticide free or organic.

Although this may be a difficult task in itself however here are a few things to look
Appearance If it is oddly shaped uneven like no two items are identical eg no two leaves of the same mango tree will ever look 100% alike. Similarly, each apple, mango or even grain will always look different from another. Their colour, shape, structure will never be uniform. There will, for instance, be different shades of yellow in your moong dal instead of the uniformly bleached yellow of the regular packaged dal.


Fruits, vegetables and grains won't be huge in size. There are, of course, special cases in which people do grow large-sized fruits and vegetables organically as well, but they are not the norm and are difficult to find.

Organic or No (grains)

Organic or No
How to know if the grains we buy are pesticide free or organic

Although a difficult task but this can be checked out –
Insect or worms in your grains are a good thing in a way Keedas (worms) too know that non-organic food is just not edible.Naturally grown sabut daals (like moong sabut, or urad sabut), atta, maida, brown rice, white rice and other grains will get keedas after two-three months and especially in the rains. All you need to do is clean the grain or sun them out like our grandmothers would and still live on with it for quite a few years.

Keedas don't contaminate your food, pesticides do. Similarly, if you see a few holes in the leaves of the greens you are buying, pick up the bunch; it means it is not heavily 'pesticided'. And one rule of thumb to follow with greens is this: after washing them well, give a final rinse of salt water for two-three minutes. This helps remove germs and residue.

Many of us want to be thin,fit, healthy that too in a short time, but many of us also don’t want to put in the efforts like exercise, Or can’t put the hours in at any activity due to lack of time . Some of us have reasons (or excuses) on why we can or can’t do something. AM I RIGHT? So what do u do….find shortcuts….

You come across claims which are tempting like,
"LOOK YOUNGER! FEEL YOUNGER! REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF AGING! LOSE WEIGHT FAST! AND GET ALL THAT IN A PILL."

Food label literacy

If you can't read it then WHY EAT IT....don't you at times feel everything written on the package food is beyond your understanding. ..If yes and you can't understand anything just leave it.

If the things written resembles name of a food go ahead, if you feel more like chemicals just throw it away.

Wake up guys before its too late
