Post-Operative care

Protein is suggested for post-operative patients because it facilitates tissue repair and muscle maintenance after surgery. Eat foods that are high in protein but easy to digest. You may want to drink protein shakes until you feel well enough to eat solid foods again.

Prevent skin cancer

As we age, our skin grows thinner; it becomes drier and less elastic. Wrinkles appear, and cuts and bruises take longer to heal. Be sure to protect your skin from the sun. Too much sun and ultraviolet rays can cause skin cancer.

Black Pepper

Black pepper is one of the healthiest ways to spice up your food! Plus it aids digestion, helps break up congestion, regulates pulse rate & blood pressure.. and a lesser known fact? It can be used effectively on nicks and cuts just like turmeric!

Tomatoes

Tomatoes contain lycopene that helps ward off cancer, antioxidants beneficial against age related diseases, nutrients that reduce risk of heart disease, protect against thrombosis and help prevent degenerative diseases such as alzheimers, osteoporosis etc. Hot tip? Do remember to add a dash of olive oil to increase absorption of lycopene ;-)

Garlic

Did you realise how amazing Garlic is?? It has antibiotic and antifungal properties; has antioxidants, detoxifies, lowers blood pressure, boosts the immune system, lowers cholesterol, protects against heart disease, strokes & blood clots, provides relief from rheumatism, protects the body against damaging "free radicals", helps with skin problems such as warts and other skin infections; and even reduces the risk of esophageal, stomach and colon cancer!

Sweeteners

The best sugar substitutes are fresh stevia and pure honey... so keep a plant of stevia in your garden and a pot of organic honey in your kitchen and you're good to go!

Tulsi

Tulsi, or Holy Basil is a great herb for winters. If you have a sore throat, boil 8-10 leaves in a glass of water for 5 minutes and sip slowly. For relief from coughs, simply chew 4-5 leaves a few times a day.

2012 Resolution

Resolve to make 2012 a year of healthy food choices. Grab a healthy snack on the go; fruits, nuts, trail mix, roasted grains or low-fat cheese. Your body will thank you for it!

Lose Weight

If you are trying to lose weight, a serving of legumes like Rajma, beans including soy beans will help you to feel full more quickly. The rich fiber content fills your stomach and causes a slower rise in blood sugar
