Rakhi Special - Healthy & Tasty Breakfast Options To Make It Extra Special!

Rakhi Special - Healthy & Tasty Breakfast Options To Make It Extra Special!

You may fight tooth and nail with your brother or sister over the smallest thing, but if you’re ever in trouble, your sibling will be the first person you think of. It is rightly said that the only person or persons you share your entire life with are your siblings. This is what makes Rakshabandhan a very special day. What could be a better occasion than this to show your brother or sister how much they mean to you, don't you think?

And one of the best ways to show love is by cooking for them. So, if you want to make Rakshabandhan special for your sibling, how about cooking them a fabulous breakfast to start the day with? Here are four simple ideas that are sure to make your sibling’s day start off on a great note.

1. Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie: Bananas are considered a complete meal and it is the best way to start a day. However, not everyone likes eating a banana. Combine a banana with peanut butter and milk to create a smoothie that no one can refuse. Not only is this tasty, it also ensures that our brother or sister gets a healthy breakfast even if they’re always complaining about not having time for breakfast.

Recipe: In a blender, combine all ingredients(milk, 1tsp. peanut butter, 1medium banana) and blend until smooth. Use ice cubes for a thicker consistency.

2. Quinoa muffins: Quinoa is a protein rich food that also has a number of other vitamins and minerals. If your sibling is conscious about weight management, quinoa muffins could be the perfect Rakshabandhan gift. These muffins can even be made the night before. Not only that, who said you can have them only for breakfast- give your sibling a basket of these muffins and they’ll think of you every time they snack on one.

Recipe: You need 1 cup quinoa(cooked), 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup dark-brown sugar, 1½ teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ cup raisins, 1 cup whole milk, 1 large egg. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl or stand mixer, put in all the ingredients and mix until well combined. Pour into muffin tins just over ½ full. Mist your muffin tin with oil, or line with silicone liners or foil liners to prevent sticking. Bake for 15-16 minutes until you press them and they spring back. The toothpick test doesn't work well on these as a bit of crumb will stick to the toothpick as they are so rich and moist.

3. Oatmeal squares: Oats are the ideal breakfast for people with gluten allergies. Along with being a rich source of fiber, vitamins and minerals, oatmeal can also help lower blood sugar levels, aid with weight loss and reduce the risk of cardiac trouble. Thus, oatmeal squares are a healthier yet just as tasty alternative to brownies and cakes. Gift your siblings a whole dish cut into squares or individually pack each oatmeal square in a zip lock bag so that they can have a healthy breakfast on the go.

Recipe: You need 1⁄2 cup margarine. 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, 2 cups rolled oats. Melt margarine, combine with sugar. Add oats and mix well. Press into 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until bubbling and golden brown. Cool and cut into 25 squares.

4. Granola bars: For people who are always in a hurry in the morning, granola bars are an excellent breakfast idea. These bars combine fiber from oats with the healthy oils from almonds, minerals from peanut butter and antioxidants from honey. For an added ‘yum’ factor, you could also add a few chocolate chips or other types of dried fruit.

Recipe: You need 2 cups oatmeal, 1 cup sliced almonds, 1 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ, 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2/3 cup honey, 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, 1/2 cup chopped dates, 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots, 1/2 cup dried cranberries. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 12-inch baking dish and line it with parchment paper. Toss the oatmeal, almonds, and coconut together on a sheet pan and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the wheat germ. Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F. Place the butter, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for a minute, then pour over the toasted oatmeal mixture. Add the dates, apricots, and cranberries and stir well. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Wet your fingers and lightly press the mixture evenly into the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until light golden brown. Cool for at least 2 to 3 hours before cutting into squares. Serve at room temperature.

With a gift like this be prepared for a big, warm hug and smile that goes from ear to ear. After all, what more could someone ask for than for a day to start like this?

My friend I suffering form period and her stomach is paining to much which precaution to bhe take at the time of period.
She is suffering from dysmenorrhoea which is very common. It should be treated initially with meftal spas (pain killer) tablets. If the pain is too severe it should be further investigated with ultrasound, to find out the exact cause. She could be suffering from endometriosis or ovarian cysr or fibroid.

Wait and repeat the test again after a week if you won't get menses. If you are not getting pregnant then go for detailed investigation like INFERTILITY PROFILE & USG PELVIS to rule out cause of infertility.

Treating Chest Congestion With Ayurveda

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), PGDEMS, DNHE, DYA
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Treating Chest Congestion With Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient life science that originated in India. It recognises herbs as medicines and Yogic postures as well as lifestyle changes as the supporting factors in its medicinal field. It is called a life science because the basic mode of treatment is done by tweaking one's lifestyle in order to reach the root cause of the ailment, which will be cleared from one's life gradually. Congestion is recognised as the accumulation of too much mucus and fluid in your lungs and is usually born due to an imbalance of the Vata Dosha, as per Ayurveda. This congestion can happen in the nasal or respiratory passages.

Let us find out what else Ayurveda says about congestion:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms of congestion include a tickling sensation at the back of the throat as well as the nasal passages, depending on the exact area of the congestion. Also, severe headaches and wheezing along with laboured breathing and tightening of the chest can point at the presence of congestion. In very severe cases, the patient may also complain of blood discharge while coughing, high fever, rashes on the skin, neck stiffness and other such conditions. 
  • Causes: There are various causes of congestion. While infection, allergy and cold are some of the most common conditions that may cause congestion, it has also been seen that congestion may arise as a symptom of a more serious ailment. Asthma is one such respiratory ailment that causes swelling in the airways, which can give rise to congestion. Also, inflammation of the bronchial tube lining can cause this condition where a greenish discharge happens due to the viral nature of the condition. Pneumonia and tuberculosis are also ailments, which can cause severe and painful congestion. 
  • Remedies: As per Ayurveda, there are many remedies that can help in treating this condition. One can drink herbal tea all day as the anti-oxidants will help in flushing out all those toxins that are causing a painful build-up of mucus and fluids inside. Also, one can use essential oils like eucalyptus oil for inhalation, steaming and even massages. One must take care not to let this oil touch the hair as greying might happen. Yoga and aromatherapy can also be practiced so as to do away with congestion. Also, the patient can add a pinch of salt to a glass of warm water in order to do a saline water gargle which will eventually clear the air passages.

Taking care of one's diet is one of the most important parts of any treatment in Ayurveda. Ingesting warm liquids like milk and warm food can help in loosening and removing the mucus build up.

Radish Leaves (Mooli Ke Patte) Benefits in Hindi - मूली के पत्ते के फायदे

वैज्ञानिक नाम रफानस सैटाईवस वाली मुली, स्वाद में तीखी या मीठी और कई रसों से युक्त होती है. इसे कच्चा या पकाकर खाया जा सकता है. कच्चा खाने के लिए इसे सलाद के रूप में इस्तेमाल करते हैं. वहीँ पका कर खाने के लिए इसका सब्जी या पराठा बना लेते हैं. मुली को अचार के रूप में भी खाते हैं. मुली विभिन्न आकार और रंग (सफ़ेद, लाल, बैंगनी या काला) की होती है. मुली में पत्तियां, फुल और बीज होते हैं. तो आइए नजर डालते हैं मुली के पत्तों के फायदों पर.

1. ह्रदय रोगों में
इसमें मौजूद एन्थेसाइनिन नामक तत्व दिल के मरीजों के लिए भी फायदेमंद होता है. ऐसा कई शोधों के परिणामों में देखा गया है कि एन्थेसाइनिन नामक तत्व ह्रदय संबंधी तमाम विकारों में सकारात्मक भूमिका निभाता है. आपको बता दें कि एन्थेसाइनिन में कैंसर रोधी गुण भी देखा गया है. हलांकि अभी इस दिशा में काफी शोध किए जाने बाकी हैं. ये जरुर है कि एन्थेसाइनिन ने तमाम शोधकर्ताओं को अपनी तरफ आकर्षित किया है.
2. पेट के लिए
मुली के हरे-हरे पत्तों में विटामिन ए, बी और सी के साथ ही क्लोरिन, फास्फोरस, सोडियम, आयरन, मैग्नीशियम और भी बहुत सारे पोषक तत्व पाए जाते हैं. अपने इन तत्वों के कारण मुली के पत्ते पेट के तमाम विकारों में फायदेमंद साबित होते हैं. कब्ज आदि पेट की तमाम बीमारियाँ इसे खाने से दूर होती हैं. पेट के साफ़ रहने से आप अनावश्यक बीमारियों से भी बच जाते हैं. यहाँ ये भी बताना ठीक रहेगा कि मुली पित्त को प्रोत्साहित करती है. 
3. ताजगी के लिए खाएं मुली के पत्ते
इसके पत्तों को आप सब्जी या पराठा के रूप में इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं. आप चाहें तो इसे कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं. इसे खाने से शरीर के प्रतिरोधक क्षमता में वृद्धि होती है. जिससे की आप बिमारियों से बेहतर तरीके से लड़ सकते हैं. इसके साथ ही ये आपको थकान महसूस नहीं होने देता है और आप तरोताजा रहते हैं. इससे आप हाइड्रेटेड भी रहते हैं.
4. बवासीर में
मुली और इसके पत्तों के तमाम फायदों में से एक ये भी है कि इससे बवासीर की समस्या भी काफी हद तक कम हो सकती है. इसके लिए आपको रोजाना इसकी सब्जी या कच्चा खाना होता है. आप चाहें तो मुली के ताजा पत्तों को पीसकर गुदाद्वार पर लगा सकते हैं. इससे भी बवासीर में राहत मिलती है.
5. निम्न रक्तचाप के मरीजों के लिए
मुली के पत्तों में सोडियम की प्रचुरता होती है. जिससे कि इसे खाने पर हमारे शरीर में नमक की कमी नहीं होती है. निम्न रक्तचाप के मरीजों के लिए ये बेहद फायदेमंद साबित होता है. इसके लिए आप मुली के पत्तों को खाएं. हलांकि इसके लिए किसी विशेषज्ञ की सलाह अवश्य लें. क्योंकि ऐसे बीमारियों में थोड़ी सी भी  चुकी काफी घातक हो सकती है.
6. पीलिया रोग में
मुली के पत्ते फाइबर से भी भरपूर होते हैं. फाइबर हमारे शरीर के लिए बेहद महत्वपूर्ण तत्व है. मुली के पत्तों के रस को पानी और मिश्री के साथ मिलाकर पिने से पीलिया रोग में राहत मिलती है. इसका एक अतिरिक्त फायदा भी है, इससे बालों का झड़ना कम होता है. मुली के पत्त्तों से बालों को मजबूती भी मिलती है.
7. अन्य फायदे
मुली के पत्तों के तमाम अतिरिक्त फायदे भी बताए जाते हैं. जैसे कि इसे आँखों के लिए भी बढ़िया माना जाता है. मुली के पत्ते खाने से पेशाब भी साफ़ आता है. मुली के पत्तों का साग बनाकर, अचार के रूप में, सब्जी के रूप में या पराठा बनाकर खा सकते हैं. इसे कच्चा भी खाने में कोई नुकसान नहीं है. तो क्या सोच रहे हैं जाइए और बाजार से मुली लाकर खाइए और स्वस्थ रहिए.
