Happy parsi new year

HAPPY PARSI NEW YEAR

Pateti is a festival of the Parsis . The name Pateti originated from the word ‘Patet’ which means repentance.This festival signifies that it is the time to forget and forgive wrong and sins of previous year and start a new year of love and peace.

Besides visiting friends and relatives,  Food has a very important role to play in Parsi celebrations. It includes a wide selection of non-vegetarian dishes, fruits and nuts. Two important dishes in breakfast for the Parsi New Year are Ravo and fried Vermicelli cooked in sugar syrup and decorated with raisins. The lunch consist of Parsi delicacies like Patra ni Macchi, Salli Boti, Mutton Palav and Dhansaak for non-vegetarians and the vegetarians can relish dishes like, Lagan nu Stew (vegetable stew), Vegetable Dhansaak, Papri No Shaak and more. The desserts will have traditional dishes like Lagan nu Custard, Doodh Pak, Suterfeni, Jalebi, Falooda and more.

Dhansak
Dhan means cereals and pulses, and saak means vegetables. It is traditionally served with browned rice to make a complete nourishing meal.

A good all in one dish….or rather a wholesome meal!…is rich in good quality proteins, complex carbs, fibre, minerals, healthy fats and adding vegetables further increases its antioxidant n vitamin content.

NJOY ………DHANSAK

Wishing all my parsi friends a very HAPPY PARSI NEW YEAR.

Independence from obesity

Independance from obesity
On this independence day here are 5 steps you can take to win the battle of the bulge, just like how soldiers work, taking inspiration from them.

1.) Find your goal or your enemy, just like soldier
You must choose your goal be it weight loss, reducing diabetes, BP, reduce cholesterol, acidity, thyroid or just healthy eating. Then all you have to do is just show up your duty.

2.) Choose your leader
You need a strong leader who can point you in the right direction. Whether it is a personal trainer or nutritionist – you MUST have a strong leader that can teach you everything you need to reach your goal.

3.) Build your army or team
A team who will train, work and be behind you and NOT leave you till you reach your goal, mainly will support you like a team. Once you’ve adapted this new lifestyle, take people with you and make your unit stronger. Pass along your knowledge to save as many people as you can.

4.) Train for battle
You must treat every day as a lesson. Every meal, every workout and every thought has a purpose, with no time wasted. Take High calorie food and laziness as enemy which will always taunt us so we must be trained and ready to win the war. Training will make us stronger and we will find the enemy (junk food, inactivity) has less of an impact on us when we are disciplined in our training.

5.) Always be ready
We have achieved our goal doesn’t mean we tell all our troops to go home. Soldiers don’t quit training, quit learning, and quit looking at plans to defend our country. Yet, when we reach our weight loss goals, we often “send the troops home”. We take down our defenses as if there is no more enemy. That is why so many people regain their weight also so many truly live in the middle of real battle all their lives. Some people may battle with their health all their lives too.

The fact is: You can either win the battle all your life OR continue losing the battle all your life.
Just because you reach your goal, don’t quit training, learning and protecting your temple. Be ready, be strong and NEVER let your guard down.

Is it time you yelled FREEDOM!? It is time you claim your independence? Let this independence day be a day you celebrate as the day you became FREE….free from unhealthy lifestyle.

Health benefits of whole grains

Health Benefits of whole grains

• Low Glycemic index of wholegrain slows down the process of digestion giving a feeling of satiation for a longer period. Thus help reduce the hunger pangs and obesity and also makes it a good choice for diabetics, as it stabilizes the blood-glucose levels.

• High fiber contents in it make the stool bulky and help in easy excretion, relieving constipation. Also helps reduce the cholesterol levels by absorbing the LDLs (bad) cholesterol from the blood stream.

• Minerals and vitamins present in wholegrain provides immunity against cancer, high-blood pressure and many heart ailments.

Consuming an average of 2.5 servings of whole grains each day is associated with a 21 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared to consuming only 0.2 servings," said Philip Mellen, M.D., lead author and an assistant professor of internal medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine.( Source:-http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/05/07)

Consumers should look for "100 percent whole grain" on food labels.

Why is maida unhealthy

Why is maida unhealthy. ..... why...if you are confused as to why daliya is better than maida ....read on

Wheat and its products
Milling and grinding the whole wheat grain provides different grades of flours to be used in cooking.

Whole-wheat when processed gives broken-wheat (dalia)It is made by milling wheat grains coarsely. Wheat is cleaned and husked and then processed to the required size. It is highly nutritious as it does not undergo refining.

Futher processing gives Semolina (rawa).  Semolina is a very gritty, coarse type of flour, usually made from purified wheat middlings of durum wheat and still further the whole wheat grain when ground with the skin and germ yields brownish flour called atta or whole wheat flour.

The same when refined further or ground without the skin yields whiter flour called maida i.e  refined flour the most starchy and nutrition-less product of the wholegrain.

Hence it is very clear broken wheat is more nutritious and maida is least nutritious,hence avoid products made with maida like white bread, cakes, biscuits, various pastries, fast food like samosa, naan.

Go whole grain eat healthy be healthy.

Do not take unnecessary medication

Do not take unnecessary medication.

Unnecessary drugs are an invitation to allergy, dependency, needless expense and countless side effects. Three quarters of your immune system is located in your gut, where it protects against foreign toxic substances in your food. A healthy balance of gut material is essential to normal immune system functioning. But if you take too many antibiotics too often this natural function is disturbed.

Overuse of anti-microbials promotes the emergence of resistant organisms with dangerous prospects to your future health. Keep your medicine cabinet very light and after you finish taking prescribed medicine throw away any left over pills. This will reduce the chance of being tempted to take an outdated or inappropriate drug in the future.

Dealing with post pregnancy weight gain

DEALNG WITH POST PREGNANCY WEIGHT GAIN
Some pointers to help you lose your post pregnancy weight.

Motherhood on one hand brings joy and on other a feeling of being fat and tired at times …RIGHT

Besides having a healthy baby, each and every mother dreams of getting back into the pre pregnancy weight, getting rid of that spongy belly, or get back into skinny jeans; all this is possible… you can, and you will – but you can’t rush it.

Most women want to know how long it will take to lose the baby weight, but there’s no simple answer.  Certainly in the first few weeks, you should be focusing on adjusting to motherhood and bonding with your baby, eating well, staying hydrated and getting enough rest.

So here are a few tips to help you lose the baby weight and get your energy back.

Breast feeding and weight loss
Breastfeeding doesn’t make you gain weight – in fact, you use up calories when you nurse, and helps you get rid of extra weight more quickly while you are nursing. You might not realize that you already began your weight-loss efforts the moment you put your baby to your breast.

A good rule of thumb is to take in 200-500 calories in excess of what you needed to maintain your weight before you were pregnant while you are nursing. 500 calories need to provide nutrients like protein, calcium and iron.  Nursing isn’t an excuse to chow down on fats and sweets and that will just lead to weight gain rather than helping you to lose baby weight.

Breastfeeding burns around 300 calories per day, so it can help you begin to lose some of your excess baby weight. What’s more, breastfeeding can help stimulate contractions in your uterus that help your belly shrink back to its regular size after pregnancy to help you regain your old shape, too.

Your body stores up fat during your pregnancy to provide the extra calories needed for milk production. It is easier to lose lower body fat (hips, buns, and thighs) when you are breastfeeding compared to the mom who is formula feeding. So goahead and enjoy feeding your baby.

Eat Balanced diet
Focuss on eating healthy,feeling energetic and pay less attention to your calorie intake. At this point don’t think about weight loss, atleast for the first 3months. Your goals must be to get good complex carbs, lean proteins, good fats and lot of fibre through fruits and vegetable intake. This will ensure that your body gets the nutrients it needs such as protein to repair body tissues, and important minerals such as calcium and iron that are much-needed by new moms.   Your body is going through a lot of changes and your focus should be on eating well, getting lean and fit.  Don’t expect the baby weight to fall off.

If you don’t eat well your baby will suffer and even you will have to bear the effects in latter life.

Go ahead and eat those laddoos or sheera as per your culture atleast for the first month to 45 days, they all contain galactogues that will increase milk production, just remember not to gorge on it for all the 4 meals, have them preferably during the earlier part of the day like for breakfast.

Stay hydrated and curb the caffeine

Dehydration can lead to fatigue, so adequate fluids are important.  Whenever you sit down to feed your baby, make a point to have a glass of water or a cup of herbal tea.  If you’re nursing your baby, avoid caffeine;  if you’re bottle-feeding, curb your caffeine intake by afternoon so as not to disrupt your sleep at night.

Snack at frequent intervals
Snacking is important, but don’t stuff yourself with too much of fried or sweet foods during this filler time snacking. You can opt for fruits, salads, raitas, sprouts chat, puff of jowar, nachni, wheat, roasted channa, groundnuts, dryfruits.

Watch the sweets or energy drinks like glucose water or sherbets
sweets

Some new moms rely on frequent sugar shots like biscuits, sherbets, glucose water throughout the day to fight fatigue – a practice that usually backfires.  Blood sugar spikes are often followed by a crash, and the cycle starts all over again.  And, obviously, sugary foods or drinks don’t provide high quality nutrition.

Try to remain active
During the nursing stage there isn’t any need to keep lying on the bed. Try to be as active as possible, which will help you keep up the metabolic rate. Begin your weight loss program slowly when you are breastfeeding. Increase your activity level.

Stay positive and focus on what’s important
Your health and the health of your baby come first.  It took you nine months to gain that weight, so don’t expect it to fall off overnight.  Focus on your achievements – especially the biggest one of all… You’re a mom!
