My name featured in today's Bombay times in an article on 4 junk foods masquerading as healthy foods

 My name featured in today's Bombay times in an article on 4 junk foods masquerading as healthy foods

 Here's the list...
Protein bars: Protein bars are very close to being considered junk food if not eaten in the right manner. Dr Seema Tyrewala, celebrity nutritionist, says, "People have a huge misconception about protein bars. For those who don't work out, a lot of protein increases uric acid levels, and is heavy on the kidney." She cites the example of a client who snacked on many protein bars in a day as he thought he was getting his dose of protein from them, plus they were tasty. "They also add to the cholesterol content of the body as they are heavy on sugar," she adds.

Breakfast cereal: The popularity of breakfast cereal can be attributed to heavy marketing, which began in the early 19th century in North America. While earlier, they were oats and corn 'grits', it was the cornflakes that took the market by storm. But what's available these days is quite different, "Breakfast cereals are loaded with sugar. The ones that are made of chocolate and other sweetened dried fruits are high on calories. People should buy non-branded corn flakes that are cheaper. For sweetness, fruits or honey can be added as that's a healthier option," says clinical nutritionist Shilpa Mittal. "While cereals do provide nutrition, one doesn't know in what quantity they are absorbed by the body and we often end up consuming large amounts of sugar instead," she adds.

Sports drinks: Marketed as 'beneficial to all', sports drinks are far from that tall claim. "Most sports drinks have sugar content that is three times more than what is needed," says Dr Tyrewala, who has often encountered patients who were actively working out but had sugar problems. "If you are consuming that much sugar, what is the use of working out?" she asks. People, she adds, need to read the labels carefully and see the amount and forms of sugar — including dextrose — that is included in the drink. Mittal reccomends homemade nimbu-paani as a better alternative. "It has the electolytes you need, and one can control the amount of sugar they want to consume," she explains.

Multi-grain products: Products like flour and bread are often sold as containing 'seven-grains' , 'multigrain' and 'bran', but what the clever labelling hides is that the nutrients are added later, after the processing step. Says Mittal, "Most multi-grain products have very smart labelling. They cover up how there's very little multigrains present in the mix. At times, multigrain flour merely has 10% of wholegrain, which means it's not even one percent in one roti," she says, adding that people should instead make the flour at home.

More Herbs, Less Salt Day 29th Aug

 More Herbs, Less Salt Day 29th Aug

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is often easier said than done – it takes thought, time and effort to prepare fresh and nutritious food, when less healthy options are often much easier and more convenient!

More Herbs, Less Salt Day encourages you to take a simple step to re-align this balance, through the use of herbs in home-cooked dishes in place of salt. It doesn’t take much room or effort to grow a variety of fresh herbs, and a little rosemary, thyme,basil, parsley,oregano, dill, fennel, mint or other herbs can do just as much to enrich a dish as a heavy dose of salt.

Eat a lot of Seasonal fruits and veggies

Eat a lot of seasonal stuff especially fruits and veggies


 Although nowadays we get all fruits and vegetables in all seasons, their nutritional content is at its peak during its season.

Other benefits
1) Lesser
use of toxic chemicals, poisonous pesticides, herbicides, and genetically modified seeds .(added during growing harvesting and for storage)
2) Good for your Health since it has not been transported from long distances hence the freshness of the fruit would be at its peak!
3) Easy on pocket.
4) Every seasons' fruits and vegetables are designed by Nature to suit the season (summer, winter etc) and hence their nutritional status would be better than the non-seasonal ones, infact all the nutrients they are rich in is at its peak, eg- Amla rich in vit C, plums rich in Vitamin A.
5) In season foods taste better than non-seasonal ones! Try it yourself.

Although Seasonal food can be boring sometimes but its Pros definitely exceed its Cons

A common observation says:
  • Mangoes, Watermelon, MuskMelon, are very sweet and taste the best during Summers. 
  • Similarly Guava, Sapota (Cheeku),Orange, Sweet lime, Water chestnut(Singhada) taste best during Winters. 
  • Corn (Bhutta), Litchi, Peaches, Plums,Jamun taste the best during Monsoons.
(There can be many more fruits that can be added to the list according to geographic locations)

So be judicious and choose more Healthy and Nutritive foods i.e.: Seasonal foods.
