    White fixation of Indians

    By: Vinita Aran

    Indians have a white fixation.They prefer everything from white skin to white flour. The numerous ads for fairness creams are a testimonial for that . Did you know that whole wheat flour made from whole wheat grain is actually more nutritious  as it contains the bran and the outer layerso which has B vitamins ,fibre and some minerals which are lost when the flour is milled removing the outer layers and bleached . Result is a refined white flour stripped  of all its nutrients which promotes fat storage and obesity, causes spikes in sugar, constipation.Various bakery items made from refined flour are detrimental for health .Opt for whole grain wheat products or multi grain breads . Did you know the advantage of rock salt vs the white table salt. White salt which is commonly used is basically Sodium chloride stripped of all minerals . Rock salt is usually blackish or pinkish depending on the source and contains many minerals good for health. Ideally the amount of sodium in a salt should be balanced by potassium and magnesium . But in white table salt strpped of all other minerals , this does not happen and hence excess table salt gives rise to hypertension and heart problems., White salt used in bread and other bakery products, processed foods is a major source of Sodium in our diet which is dettrimental for health. Jaggery is the unrefined form of sugar. Jaggery contains many phytonutrients and  minerals like calcium ,Iron,potassium ,phosphorus  which are totally lacking in white sugar.Chemicals and bleaches are used to make table sugar from jaggery stripping it of all the nutrients in the bargain.Jaggery or Gur has traditionally been used in India for sweetening .With the excess use of white sugar prevalant now, incidence of  Diabetes, obesity have also increased manifold Its high time  we realise the value of using the SMS -Sugar ,Maida, Salt in our lives prudently and give preference to the traditional BROWN  against WHITE forms of flour,sugar and salt  to lead a healthier life  which does not promote degenerating diseases like Diabetes, Obesity, Hypertension,Heart disease.among others.   .

    Mantras for EATING RIGHT IN RESTAURANTS

    By: Vinita Aran

    MANTRAS FOR EATING RIGHT IN RESTAURANT Eating out in restaurants has become a very common phenomenon nowadays. But if you are eating out very often, it becomes a problem to control your weight unless you are conscious of what you eat. To keep your meal moderate in calories, fat, and sugars here are a few mantras: In a beverage choice, ask for water, buttermilk or fresh lime salted or other drinks without added sugars. In a restaurant, start your meal with a salad packed with veggies, to help control hunger and feel satisfied sooner. Ask for salad dressing to be served \"on the side\" so you can add only as much as you want. Ask for whole-wheat bread for sandwiches and skip the butter, have with green chutney. Subway. Sandwiches with lots of vegetables and without cheese are a good option. Skip the mayonnaise and ask for mustard sauce, chilli sauce, vinaigrette and sweet onion sauces If in an Indian restaurant prefer tandoori roti over naan made from maida. Include vegetables, such as stir fries, kebabs Order foods that do not have creamy sauces or gravies Order steamed, grilled, or broiled dishes instead of those that are fried or sautéed. In non veg items choose grilled fish, Tandoori chicken, Kebabs rather than fried items . Pasta in a tomato based red sauce is better than in white creamy sauce Choose a small\" or \"medium\" portion. This includes main dishes, side dishes, and beverages. Order an item from the menu instead heading for the \"all-you-can-eat\" buffet. If main portions at a restaurant are larger than you want, Share a main dish with a friend. If the serving size is big, take leftovers home in a \"doggy bag.\" Resign from the \"clean your plate club\" - when you\'ve eaten enough, leave the rest. Choose fruits for dessert most often. Gelato ice-creams especially Fruit Sorbets .are much lower in cream (fat )and sugar than regular ice creams .Frozen yoghurts with fruits is also a healthier option for desserts
