10 Reasons To Add DATES To Your Daily Diet
Health benefits of dates
Dates are rich in iron, vitamins and minerals. They have numerous benefits and are highly recommended to be included in your daily diet. Interestingly, dates are widely used as alternative medicine in rural india. Here is a look at top ten health benefits of dates:
1. No cholesterol - free from cholesterol and low fat, dates are also rich in minerals and vitamins.
2. Vitamin stuffed - a rich source of vitamins b1, b2, b3 b5, a1 & c, they are also rich in dietary fiber and protein.
3. Rich in fiber - dates contain soluble and insoluble fibers along with various kinds of amino acids which helps them improve one's digestive system.
4. Helps weight gain - dates are known to be advised to people who want to gain weight. They contain proteins, sugar and various essential vitamins.
5. Cures constipation - one of the best cures for constipation is to have a few dates soaked overnight and eaten along with water.
6. Treats anemia - high in iron, dates are suggested to people who are being treated for anemia.
7. Energy booster - dates are good substitutes for sugar. They boost energy as they contain natural sugars yet are low in calories making them perfect snack option for health conscious people.
8. Good for heart - if soaked overnight, crushed in the morning and then eaten, dates are known to have positive effects on weak hearts. Being rich in potassium is also another reason they are good for the heart.
9. For sexual stamina - dates are known to be good for sexual stamina. To cure sexual weakness, soak a handful of dates in fresh goat's milk and the next morning, grind the dates in the milk. Add honey and cardamom powder, and drink it. This is known to reduce sterility.
10. For eye care - apart from fighting various conditions of the ear, nose and throat, dates are also good for eyes, especially in cases of night blindness. Here the date leaves also come into picture where they are ground into a fine paste and rubbed around and on the eyes. Alternatively, eating dates is also known to reduce night blindness.

Gram Flour (Besan) - How it is Beneficial for Your Skin?

Gram Flour (Besan) - How it is Beneficial for Your Skin?

We all crave for that glowing, healthy skin which is easy to maintain and are willing to shell our exorbitant amounts to achieve the same. However, we need not look far. There are some magical products right in our homes which can do the trick for us, without spending time or money. Besan (gram flour) is one such wonder.

Read on to know some of its most significant benefits.

  1. Anti-tanning effects: If you have just come back from a holiday and are wondering how to get rid of the tan from your face, then try this. Mix a couple of spoons of besan with some lime, yogurt and a pinch of turmeric. Leave it on your face for a while and wash it off to see your skin become radiant and glowing. In about a week’s time, your tan would be a thing of the past.
  2. Decrease oily feeling: For people with oily or greasy skin, a simple face pack made by mixing gram flour with raw milk or yogurt applied for 20 minutes will do wonders. It can even be mixed with rose water and honey and used as a face pack. The residues and the dirt that oily skin tends to accumulate would be gone.
  3. Anti-acne agent: While acne continues to remain one of the dreadful skin issues, the besan comes to the rescue here too. Mixed with sandalwood powder, milk and turmeric powder, besan can be used to fight pimples. Apply it on the skin and dry it off once it dries.
  4. Anti-sagging effect: Whip up an egg white and add gram flour to it and apply it on the face for about 30 minutes. The skin will be firmer and will have a youthful glow.
  5. For instant fairness: When you have a function coming up or have to go out and do not have time for a visit to the parlour, head to the kitchen. Take the besan flour and add orange peel powder if available or just add milk cream. Use circular motions to help it soak into the skin. When you wash it after about 20 to 30 minutes, the skin will be soft, supple, and flowing.
  6. Controls unwanted hair: With regular use, besan mixed with fenugreek seeds (methi) or sandalwood powder, lime, and milk cream helps control unwanted hair growth.

For those who remember, besan is the only cleaning agent used, which leaves them with soft, supple skin which is free of oiliness and unwanted hair. So, what are you waiting for? The best art is that this can be used regularly without having to step out of the house while continuing to do the regular household chores. If you wish to discuss about any specific skin problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.

Top 5 Carb Rich Foods For Breakfast

The obesity epidemic was unfairly blamed on the consumption of carbs. While processed junk foods, which are high in refined grains and sugar are extremely fattening and unhealthy, fiber rich foods that also contain carbs are very healthy and essential for your diet. If you consume high fiber carbs moderately, it helps you maintain a healthy weight because if you get anything lower than approximately 50% of calories from carbohydrates, you are unhealthy. Carbohydrates, which are rich in fiber can be easily digested by your body.

Mentioned below are 10 food items which are extremely rich in carbs and should be consumed during breakfast for optimum health. 

  1. Apples: Despite the different colors, flavors and sizes, apples consist of 13 to 15% carbs, as well as many vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in healthy plant compounds, antioxidants and vitamin C. Apples are helpful in decreasing the risk of a few types of cancers, reducing heart diseases and improving blood sugar control. 
  2. Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are extremely nourishing. It has the sufficient amount of carbohydrates present to maintain your health, as well as fiber, potassium, vitamin B5, vitamin A, manganese and vitamin C. It is also very low in cholesterol, saturated fats and sodium. Consume this antioxidant food item everyday for breakfast to sustain your health. 
  3. Bananas: Bananas contain about 23% carbs. The unripe ones are high in starch, which turns into sugar as it ripens. Apart from carbs, bananas also contain a high amount of Vitamin B 6, potassium and vitamin C along with healthy plant compounds. They are also rich in pectin and resistant starch.
  4. Quinoa: Classified as pseudo cereal, it is an incredibly popular seed that is eaten like a grain. Apart from being a high carb food, it is not only extremely rich in fibers and proteins, but also plant compounds and minerals. One of its many health benefits is improved blood sugar control. Incorporate it in your diet to help you lose weight.
  5. Oats: Deemed as one of the healthiest whole grain foods, oats is an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. It contains 66% carbohydrates and above 10% of it is fiber. Not only does it lower cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels, but is also extremely helpful in losing weight.
