It is Nutrition Week and Health Is Wealth

I got this in the mail, and just had to share it with everyone. Take it seriously, and make a pledge to eat healthy (for those who don’t know – last week was “Nutrition Week”) But then, every week ought to be Nutrition Week – so here goes:

Good health is a multifaceted aspect, and staying healthy in body and mind means taking up a lifestyle where you strike a balance between food and exercise. To do this, you need to know the do’s and don’ts depending on your specific health condition so that you can take advantage of nutritious food.

The food you eat on a daily basis impacts how your body works – so a nutritious diet that is rich
in fruit and vegetables, nuts, legumes, whole grains, and mono-saturated fats such as olive oil, will show in your overall health. So make sure you develop healthy eating habits along with your other health-related activity.

How to do this?

* Eat 3-4 servings of fruits and vegetables every day to boost immunity and for healthy digestion.
* Opt for whole grains, pulses, sprouts to get the daily protein and fibre in your diet and restrict the intake of refined foods and simple sugars.
* Consume calcium rich foods like milk and milk products, nuts, leafy vegetables.
* Eat iron rich foods like garden cress seeds, sesame seeds, cauliflower greens, legumes, soya, rice flakes, to keep active all day.
* Include a lot of fluid in a day like water, vegetable soups, lentil soups to keep you hydrated.
* Watch your total fat and salt intake.
* Opt for blended oils over saturated fats like ghee, butter, cream, margarine etc.
* Eat healthy periodically, every 2-3 hrs, in smaller portions throughout the day.

Build you nutrition quotient with some nutrient rich recipes. Here are some superb recipes that have actually turned out as promised for me.

@ Kamini – I know! But it feels good to re-visit good things 🙂 And then – I always think about my grandmother who would tirelessly make yummy food always – keeping nutrition in mind. It also helps that I love veg!

Foods rich in calcium can be roughly classified as follows: dairy products, soy products, kelp and shrimp skins, animal solids, etc. However, at the same time as calcium supplementation, it is necessary to bask in the sun to help the skin synthesize vitamin D and promote calcium absorption. In addition, there is sour horn, which is known as “the king of calcium”. Many people think that the most abundant calcium is milk. In fact, the most abundant calcium in daily food is sesame sauce. The calcium content per 100 grams of sesame sauce is 1057 mg.
