Breakfast - Foods That Are Actually Healthy & Unhealthy!

Breakfast - Foods That Are Actually Healthy & Unhealthy!

Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, no matter which culture you belong to. The age old saying goes that you should have breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. Let's look at some of the menu items which are not considered ideal for breakfast menus on a regular basis along with a few others which are.

Some of the unhealthiest breakfast foods:

  1. Chole bhatture or oily pooris - These are favorite items within Indian breakfast menus. However, they are full of oil and saturated fats. Apart from contributing to diabetes and blood pressure, bloating, acidity, and heartburn are also common side effects.
  2. Pakoras, samosas or kachoris - Common items which are included in many breakfast and snack menus, these oily fries are major contributors to bad cholesterol, reduce good cholesterol and is are major contributors to obesity.
  3. Sugary cereals - While plain corn flakes are good, sugary cereals have processed sugar and are a no-no for breakfast items as they could cause elevated blood glucose levels and thus cause a host of problems.
  4. Medu vada - While having a medu vada once or twice is alright, having it as a daily breakfast item will add a lot of oil to your diet and so, should be avoided.
  5. Bakery items - Many bakery items such as doughnut, Tiffin cakes, and sweet breads usually tend to have a lot of processed sugar, refined flour and additives which can be harmful to your health.

Some healthy breakfast foods:

  1. Idli - This is a staple breakfast item in southern India and is very healthy as it is prepared by steaming rice mixes. However, reduce spicy chutneys or side dishes while consuming idlis as they can be quite bad for health.
  2. Upma - Another export of the south, upma is now loved all over India and the world. Made with suji or rawa and very little oil, this is a great and filling breakfast alternative.
  3. Poha or Chivra pulao - Made from flattened rice flakes, poha, also known as chivda pulao, is a great healthy alternative and should be incorporated in breakfast diets.
  4. Indian veg sandwiches- As long as the bread is whole wheat, this is a very healthy option as it is usually made with vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and potatoes and also has chutney as the dressing.
  5. Dosa - Another great option from southern India, this is a great breakfast food if the sambar and accompanying dishes are cooked in less oil and have fewer spices.
  6. Khakra - This dish which comes from Gujarat is also a great breakfast item and can also become a low calorie snack for cravings in between meals.

Quinoa - Amazing Health Benefits You Must Know About!

Quinoa - Amazing Health Benefits You Must Know About!

Quinoa is considered to be one of the world's healthiest foods. It is gluten free and high in protein. It is among the few plants which contain all 9 essential amino acids. Quinoa is also rich in fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, Vitamin E, vitamin B and other beneficial antioxidants.

Here are 11 health benefits of quinoa:

  1. Quinoa comes in red, white and black colors. It is an edible seed and becoming very trendy among the people who are health conscious. It is loaded with the richness of many important nutrients.
  2. There are many trace nutrients present which are very healthy for the body. These include flavonoids which are basically the plant antioxidants which have beneficial effects on the health. Quercetin and Kaempferol are flavonoids and are found in large amounts in quinoa. Both these molecules have anti viral, anti inflammatory, anti cancer and anti depressants effects.
  3. Very high in fiber, much higher than most grains: It is high in fiber, but boiled quinoa has less fiber in it as it is absorbed by the water. It has almost 17-27 grams of fiber per cup.
  4. Gluten-free and perfect for people with gluten intolerance: A gluten free diet is considered to be healthy as long as the starches are not refined as this causes a problem. If gluten foods with refined sugars are consumed they are equal to consuming junk food. Quinoa is a natural gluten free product and is used in gluten free recipes. This increases the nutrient value and the antioxidants of the gluten diet.
  5. Amino acids make up the protein. Some of these amino acids are known as essential as we need to get them through diet. Many plant foods are deficient in some essential amino acids like lysine. But quinoa is an exception, as it contains all the nine amino acids.
  6. The glycemic index is usually done to measure the blood sugar levels. On eating foods high in glycemic index, it can stimulate the hunger and leads to obesity. The glycemic index of quinoa is 53 which is low.
  7. Certain nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc and (for women) irons go missing from the diet. Quinoa is very high in all these minerals, especially magnesium.
  8. Quinoa can lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels thus improving metabolic health.
  9. Quinoa appears to be very high in antioxidants, which are increased even further after the seeds are sprouted.
  10. Helps in losing weight as quinoa is high in fiber, protein and has a low glycemic index.
  11. Quinoa is very easy to include in diet.

8 Foods That You Must Never Store In Cold Storage!

8 Foods That You Must Never Store In Cold Storage!

When it comes to storing foods, we all think that the cooler the temperature it is stored at, longer will be the shelf life. However, what most of us fail to realize is that not all foods need to be stored in a freezer. It can do more harm than good.  Read on to know more about foods that just should not be placed in the freezer.

  1. Potatoes: Given their high water content, storing in a freezer can make them fluffy, bloated and bland, especially if they are put in a freezer after baking. The texture of the potato in the dishes after freezing can also be change.
  2. Milk: While it is common to stash it away in the fridge, remember not to put it in the freezer. When you thaw it, the milk can separate into pieces (curdling) and not be useful to add in your cereal or for your tea. It is best kept outside in the regular cooling area.
  3. Eggs: While eggs can be stored in the fridge, there is no need to put the eggs with the shells in the freezer. The water inside can act up and cause the shell to break, leading to attack from bacteria. The eggs could also crack leaving a mess in the freezer. Remove eggs out of the shell, beat up nicely, and store in an airtight container if at all required.
  4. Milk products: Similar to milk, yoghurt, sour cream and cheese are also best left out of the freezer. The water content will expand and spoil them, leaving behind unhealthy and non-tasty yoghurt or cheese.
  5. Fried Foods: Be it French fries or mozzarella sticks, leaving them in the freezer can leave them soft and doughy. These are best left out of the freezer in order to retain their crunchy crispiness.
  6. Water-rich fruits and vegetables: While the fridge helps in keeping the vegetables and fruits fresh, the freezer does not. With water-rich food substances especially cucumber, lettuce and water melon, the water inside can form ice crystals. When removed from the freezer, during thawing, the water oozes out leaving a non-appealing pile of the fruit/vegetable.
  7. Re-using food items: Be it fruits or vegetables or meat, once thawed to normal temperature, it is best to avoid putting them back in the freezer. Once thawed, they draw a lot more bacteria and germs and are more harmful than the frozen foods. Remove only what is essential for use, thaw it and leave the rest to remain in the freezer.
  8. Salad greens: Frozen salad greens like spinach and lettuce can lose their crispiness, becoming limp and soft. To retain their freshness, stash them wrapped in a paper bag in the fridge.

Be careful of what you put in the freezer the next time and enjoy a healthy and hearty meal.

Does drinking water effects weight gain? When and how much to drink to gain mass.

Does drinking water effects weight gain? When and how much to drink to gain mass.
Yes drinking excess water leads to toxicity and finally obesity. More potassium in body maintains the electrolytic balance of sodium potassium in body, as a result excess sodium flushes out which in excess leads to water retention, so it removes water retention and leads to weight gain. But this only reason should not be the reason to increase potassium in diet. There are many more reasons which leads to weight gain.

Artificial Sweeteners - Are You Aware Of These Facts?

Artificial Sweeteners - Are You Aware Of These Facts?

If you like your food sweet, but worry about calories at the same time, chances are you are inclining towards artificial sweeteners to solve your dilemma. The market is flooded with artificial sweeteners, so how do you choose one? And what are their pros and cons?

Besides weight control, artificial sweeteners are also used by people suffering from diabetes. But there is a debate as to how safe artificial sweeteners are, for normal people and diabetics alike. You get multiple choices from aspartame to sucralose, present in stores. However, it is better to be educated about their benefits and disadvantages before you decide to use one. Listed below are the pros and cons of most popular sweeteners available in the market.

1. Saccharin: This sugar substitute has been in the market for the longest.
Pros:

  • It has zero calories
  • It does not elevate the levels of blood sugar
  • 200-700 times sweeter than normal sugar

Cons:

  • It is a possible carcinogen (substances that cause cancer)
  • There is also the danger of saccharin acting as an allergen (substances that cause allergy)

2. Aspartame: It is the most commonly used sugar substitute. Almost all the food items that boast of being sugar-free have aspartame in them.
Pros:

  • 160-220 times sweeter than common sugar
  • A small amount goes a long way, so calorie intake is lesser

Cons:

3. Sucralose: This sugar substitute is derived from sugar itself. It is gradually becoming the most popularly used sweetener as it is found in almost all cooked or baked foods.
Pros:

  • It is heat resistant, so it is used liberally in cooking and baking
  • It has very few calories

Cons:

  • Weight gain is still possible
  • It has chlorine in it, which is a carcinogen in nature

4. Neotame: This is a new invention and is chemically related to aspartame.
Pros:

  • 7000 -13000 times sweeter than common sugar with zero calories
  • Apparently, it is safe for consumption for teens, children and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding

Cons:

  • There isn't enough research done on Neotame, therefore very little is known about it
  • Since its chemical composition is closer to aspartame, there is much controversy about "neotame" affecting people the same way as aspartame

Now that you are aware of the different variety of artificial sweeteners available, it is advisable that you consult your doctor before using them. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
