Choose powerful vegetables

Choose powerful vegetables

Fresh vegetables, leafy vegetables should be consumed in good amounts.. Not all vegetables are created equal. The darker the color, the higher the concentration of nutrients. For example, spinach has more to offer the mind and body than iceberg lettuce. Other great vegetable choices include bell peppers, broccoli and sweet potatoes.

Also eating a lot of green leafy vegetable can help us with detoxifying the body.

Green food Week

Green Food Week
Green colour for detoxification

What they contain: 
Green foods get their color from a pigment called chlorophyll,they high amounts of Vitamin K,lutein and zeaxanthin, phytochemicals such as indoles and glucosinolates and iron, potassium.

Why you should eat more:
Chlorophyll, a natural blood purifier supports the liver and kidneys in the elimination of toxins. Vitamin K is necessary for blood clotting and building strong bones.Lutein and zeaxanthin can filter out harmful light that damages the eyes. A daily serving of any green veg can slash your chances of having a heart attack, too.

Examples of green foods include kale, broccoli, mint, garlic green,spinach, green beans, celery, lettuce, watercress, cucumber, broccoli, sprouts, green beans, peas, green apples, grapes and kiwi fruit.

What I tried here is awla chutney, methi muthiya, garlic corriander paratha, mint khichdi.

Do you think going on a diet means following any of this.... Think again

Do you think going on a diet means following any of this.... Think again

Fad diets are marketed as quick ways to lose weight. Their types changes from year to year, but the promises they make don’t. Know how to spot a FAD diet.

Diets such as the ketogenic diet,  raw food diet, the paleo diet, GM diet,  blood group diet etc.

How to know if the diet is a FAD DIET

Does it eliminate a particular food no rice, rotis or grains

The diet promise unrealistic weight loss in a short amount of time.

Insist on buying certain foods from a special place

Gives powders or pills to lose weight.

Make you believe it’s super easy to follow the diet

It is temporary or short term.

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’ve probably spotted a fad diet.

This diets are supported with Advertising that promotes very convincing results. Don’t be fooled. This type of weight loss plan is not a healthy way to lose weight.

Why fad diets fail
Fad diets are impossible to stick to for long. This means that once you stop following the diet, you’ll probably gain back the weight you lost. Some people actually gain back more weight than they started with.

Fad diets don’t usually provide enough nutrients.

Be smart, do some research — look for the science behind the diet’s claims. A better solution is to work with a nutritionist or dietitian to create a realistic diet that will be effective for you.

Red food week

Winters are the best times to enjoy veges so decided to designate a week by colour so here comes

Red colour or in other words Lycopene is the predominant pigment in reddish fruits and veggies.

So whats behind the color lycopene, a carotenoid is a powerful antioxidant that has been associated with a reduced risk of some cancers, especially prostate cancer, and protection against heart attacks by improving blood circulation, organ function and blood pressure.In fact, cooking enhances the activity of some phytochemicals, such as lycopene.

Examples of red foods include tomatoes, watermelon, beets, and red bell peppers.
