Our lifestyle


#Healthylifestyleawarenessmonth
Our lifestyle
Today, many children and even adults spend a lot of time being inactive and simultaneously overeating. “An average child spends about 2-3 hours a day with television, the internet, mobile phones or video games during which they often snack on fast food and gulp down a lot of sugary soft drinks, all of which can add up huge calories.”

However it is not junk food alone that is making them obese—it is the junk lifestyle we provide them.
With this kind of lifestyle……eating junk, no activity, smoking, drinking…where are we heading…..

Hey guys please give this a thought………

Eat Dinner at least two hours before bedtime


Eat Dinner at least two hours before bedtime


It is generally advised to stop eating two hours before bedtime as our body’s metabolism dips and it is preparing for sleep(rest). Furthermore, lying down to go to sleep after eating a late dinner or midnight snack makes it impossible for gravity to hold food and liquids in place so stomach acids can do their job.

Also lack of activity after dinner makes it difficult for the body to digest food, some researchers believe going to bed with a full stomach causes the food to turn to fat.
Regardless of which theory is correct, the bottom line is that eating before bed interferes with getting a good night's sleep.

So, however  healthy dinner you eat it does not serve its purpose.

Importance of Folic Acid during Pregnancy

Pregnancy Awareness Week –
12th feb to 16th feb 2018
The Importance of Folic Acid during Pregnancy

All nutrients are essential in preparing for pregnancy, but folate or folic acid merits special consideration.
Soon after conception, folate helps develop the baby’s neural tube, which becomes the spinal cord and brain. Women who consume enough folate, particularly in the weeks prior to conception and during the first six weeks of pregnancy, may reduce their babies’ risks of neural tube defects.

Eat a variety of foods rich in folate, such as citrus fruits and juices, dark-green leafy vegetables, beans and nuts. And women of childbearing age should consume 400 micrograms of folic acid (600 micrograms if pregnant) from fortified foods in grains, such as breads, cereals or pastas, vitamin supplements or both, in addition to the folate found naturally in other foods.

Jowar (sorghum) sprouts

Jowar (Sorghum) sprouts
Eating millets is not only from the point of view of well-being but also from the environmental perspective. The drought resistant nature of this grain along with its ability to produce a good yield with limited water supply is the need of the hour
Jowar sprouts are gluten free packed with  iron, calcium,   protein and fibre.

Sprouting causes improvement in the contents of certain essential amino acids like increases lysine (a key amino acid lacking in most grains) and concentrates the protein. It Increases tryptophan, albumin and globulin, decrease prolamins, a plant storage protein that may be diļ¬ƒcult for some people to digest.
Sprouting of grains causes increased activities of hydrolytic enzymes, total sugars, and B-group vitamins, and a decrease in dry matter, starch, and antinutrients. These include amylase to digest carbohydrates, lipase to digest fats, and protease to digest protein.
Thus digestibilities of storage proteins and starch are improved due to their partial hydrolysis during sprouting.”
Sorghum has presence of antioxidants in the form of polyphenolic compounds in fairly large amounts.
In addition to the anitoxidants, the presence of sorghum wax, contributes to the cardiac benefit that this millet provides. The wax in this grain contains policosanols , which help in lowering cholesterol levels.
Have a bowl of jowar sprouts today.
