Fruits and vegetables:

We’re all aware of the nutritional richness of vegetables and fruits. They’re packed with vitamins and minerals and are loaded with fibre. Eat at least 5 servings a day. A serving is equal to 1/2 cup of cooked or raw fruit or vegetable or 1 cup of leafy greens. Eating 2-3 fruit servings in a daily diet, since it also provides a wide range of health boosting antioxidant including flavonoids which is not only good for digestion, but also beneficial for the skin & hair.

Pulses:

Pulses or Dal are staples in every Indian kitchen. There’s absolutely nothing that can beat this simple yet nutrient-rich dish. Consuming 2-3 portions of pulse or dals, beans, legumes can help one get the required quota of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Protein as we all know plays a vital role in enhancing our body’s overall strength and improving its repairing and maintenance power.

Millets:

“A lot of importance has been given to the consumption of rice and wheat in our daily diet, which is good. But it should be in a moderate amount like 3-4 exchanges in a day”. Millets such as ragi, jowar and bajra which are not only healthy whole grains but also gluten free and loaded with protein, fibre and antioxidants.

Steamed Rice:

Steamed rice is a better alternative than Maida and wheat as it has lower glycaemic index and its easily digestible.

Lean protein:

Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet, but it’s important to choose lean protein sources such as chicken or fish instead of red meat. Have 2-3 servings per day – a serving is 4 ounces of cooked chicken or fish, 1 egg, 1/4 cup cooked beans, or 1 ounce of nuts or seeds. One should avoid fried chicken and fish as they are high in trans and saturated fats which will increase the risk of cholesterol and heart disease.
