I can make your food Healthy and Nutritious! Want to know how?

Food is the most important thing in our lives besides water. But due to unhealthy food, many people have faced harmful diseases. As unhealthy food takes a shorter time to prepare, thus it’s demand is increasing day by day.


Due to this, many restaurants exist today serving quick delicious but still very unhealthy meals. Eating unhealthy food means the loss of rich minerals, vitamins, and nutrients from our bodies. Only by changing our routine diets to something healthy we can get minerals, vitamins, and nutrients that are necessary for our body.


But like almost everyone, even I don’t like healthy food as they are pretty much dull and unpresentable. Every food needs a soul that people look before that food touches our taste buds and makes it mouth-watering which makes us say~ “What a delicious meal”, but while looking at healthy food we can just say one word “Where is the soul of the food?”. What if I tell you that I can give you recipes of delicious healthy meals that you can make at home in less time with all the minerals, vitamins, and nutrients one requires!


Let me just quickly brief you with a few vital components necessary in a balanced meal.


Calcium

Most of us when young were forced to have milk every day because it’s by far the easiest source of Calcium. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium also helps to strengthen our bones and enables our heart to beat. 99% of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth.

Normal people can eat or drink dairy products for their calcium requirements. Lactose intolerant and vegan people can gain calcium from broccoli, cabbage, okra, and tofu. One of such recipes is:

Hey if you don’t want to take those calcium tablets when you’re old and grey, make sure you incorporate enough of it while you’re still young.

Fibers

Guys, nutri-fiber biscuits aren’t your only source of fiber, trust me! Fibers help regulate the body's use of sugars, helping to keep hunger and blood sugar in check, reducing risks of heart disease, diabetes, constipation, breast cancer, and colon cancer.

Fibers rich food for all types of people are broccoli, beans, nuts, avocadoes, and popcorn, and don‘t forget your chappatis!

Vitamins

There are 13 types of vitamins like vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and B, and getting these alphabets into your system is tougher than you think.


Vitamin is a major requirement for our body but our daily food does not provide that much of vitamins. So vitamins rich food such as carrots, potato, beans, and many more should be added to your meal.

For vegetarian tomatoes, beans, cereal, cheese, etc. And for vegan tofu and dark green leafy vegetable.

Quick tips for making your food tastier:

  • If your everyday dal rice is boring, add one piece of fried papad to change the flavour.

  • Garlic and ginger are foods sent from heaven above, add it to your drab khichdi for brilliant taste.

  • Have one glass of lemonade(“Nimbu Pani”) every morning, for your dose of Vitamin C along with hydration and skin glow.

  • Cook differently, for example - grill your sandwiches once in a while instead of having them plain, or roast your potatoes on the stove for better flavor.


Along with these components, it is very important to eat local and eat fresh, because that is what your body is accustomed to. Running after the western concept of health will mostly not work for everyone. Stick to your ancestral diets for example do not shy away from a good sumptuous spoon of ghee in your vegetables, drink a glass of Haldi doodh, or as the westerners call it “golden milk” to improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety and stress.


Now that you’re aware of what your body really needs, feed your body with all these good things. Healthy food does not necessarily mean a tasteless, boring meal. A good balance of ingredients can always spruce up an uninteresting dish.


And if you’re still in doubt, a spoonful of Nutella never did any wrong ;)
