To live, we’ve to eat, but when people are eating junk food and fry food that is very wrong food. Basically that is not food at all. So Eating healthy food is utmost important to stay healthy. Means we should eat plant based food; such as-more fruits(fruit salad)vegetables.
People think eating fruits and vegetables only, will make their lives dull. I will say, no, it’s not like this. If we know how to cook vegetables in healthy way, then it is not boring at all. I am vegetarian and my whole family, we are vegetarian. Means we eat only fruits and vegetables.
But everyday I make my family’s food fresh and healthy; such as I make Missi Roti, Sabji from different fresh vegetables, Soup from different Dals(lentils), then garnish them with fresh chopped coriander.
To enjoy something more tasty and healthy rather than tea and milk, because I stopped to drink milk around 7-8 months ago. But I was missing it, so I started to eat Suji Da Halwa in the beginning, but because we have to use a lot of desi ghee to make halwa, so we can’t eat it each and every day.
Because here in Canada, it is so much Cold especially in winter, so that’s why and I’m used to drink milk from my childhood(now I’m 56) so despite of stopping milk 7 months before, still I wanted to drink something hot, so continuously, I was drinking a small cup of tea after my dinner.
From Monday, 22 March, 2021, now I am drinking and even all my family members, we like it a lot and that is Ragi Malt(Ragi Kanji) Little about Ragi Millet->Millets are high in Nutrition and their consumption has many health benefits if we eat them on daily basis. Ragi also called finger millet, which is very good for people of all ages and good for bones as it is a good source of calcium. It is also rich in iron and fiber.
So there is one another option to eat some green herbs; such as-fresh coriander, mint, basil, rosemary, green onion. And even we can use-Cucumber, Zucchini, Baby Spinach, Methi leaves etc in our Chutneys.
Eating Chutney with your food is good, because will not only enhance your taste, but you’ve another salty fresh home made dish with your food.
These herbs not only increase the taste of your food, but also help in curing some health issues. Such as mint helps to relieve Indigestion and more.
