Sugary drinks or soda are never healthy. Even if you make them zero calorie or lessen the sugar content you cannot call them healthy. Here comes the ultimate reasons to avoid sweetened beverages :

  • They are the most fattening aspects of modern diet because of large amount of empty calorie content
  • Sucrose and high fructose corn syrup are about 50% fructose, which can only be metabolized by the liver. Excessive amounts may contribute to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • Sugar sweetened drinks drastically increases accumulation of belly fat
  • Excess sugar can cause insulin resistance and thus metabolic syndrome
  • They are the leading cause of type 2 diabetes
  • Sugary sodas contain empty calories - no nutrients at all.
  • They can cause addiction to people soon
  • Sugary sodas are related to increased heart disease world wide
  • They affect dental health
  • They increase the risk for cancer, gout & Dimentia

Some suggestions to stay hydrated in a healthy way

  • Fresh fruits and herbs pimped up water
  • Coconut water
  • Iced tea
  • Fruit juice
  • Vegetable juice

20 plants salad Lovers must grow
18 June 2016
Salad lovers must have their own kitchen garden to make things easier for them. This will also help in consuming the salad as fresh as we want and it would taste great. The colour of the salad will be vibrant because of the freshness and it would be appealing to eyes and stomach. Moreover one would consume no preservative or harmful pesticides as you will go organic. So the 20 plants salad lovers must grow are as follows: 1.    Amaranth- spinach substitute that grows remarkably well in warm, humid weather 2.    Arugula- popular mixed salad green with a pleasant, peppery kick 3.    Asian greens ?- tasty family that includes the bold mizuna, spinach-like tatsoi and others 4.    Beans - delicious (and healthy!) ingredient in hearty, filling salads 5.    Borage - produces edible, cucumber-flavored flowers 6.    Broccoli ?- a single serving has about twice as much vitamin C as an orange 7.    Cauliflower ?- pale cousin of broccoli with similar health benefits and taste 8.    Celery ?- rich with fiber, easy way to add more texture to a salad 9.    Chard - top superfood, often included in premade salad mixes 10. Cress - recently ranked as the most nutrient dense food 11. Cucumbers - iconic summer crop, increase the cool, crisp factor of any salad 12. Kale ?- packed with iron, often shredded to make a simple salad 13. Lettuces - with so many interesting varieties to choose from, you could easily grow a lettuce-only Tower Garden! (And some people do.) 14. Mustard greens - like lettuce, a pretty big family that includes several delicious, spicy varieties 15. Nasturtium - edible flower with a peppery, cress-like flavor, doubles as natural pest control 16. Peas - sweet, snap varieties often added to salads 17. Spinach - perhaps the most popular salad ingredient next to lettuce, very sensitive to heat 18. Strawberries - delightful topping if you like sweet salads 19. Sweet peppers - enliven salads with color and crunch 20. Tomatoes - bursting with flavor, cherry tomatoes are a popular variety for salads                                                                                          ~ Dt. Deepalekha Banerjee
Celebrate Food Day in a Healthy Way
25 October 2016
October 24 is a day to resolve to make changes in our own diets and to take action to solve food-related problems in our communities at the local, state, and national level. In 2016, Food Day has the theme "Toward a Greener Diet." The daily diet in today's fast and corporate lifestyle is contributing to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems. Eating Real can save your own health and put our food system on a more humane, sustainable path. Celebrate Food: Food is truly amazing. We all know that. So make your next grocery shopping trip more exploratory by asking each member of your family to choose a new fruit or vegetable to try. Plan meals to include these new healthy foods, and use them to spark great conversations about what you're eating. Your dinner table will be full of food, conversation and giggles. Celebrate the People Who Grow and Harvest Local Foods: Local farmers are all around us: in farmers markets, grocery stores, schools and restaurants. When you choose to buy local, you are supporting members of your community. When you dine out, try restaurants that serve local foods and support farmers. Or, celebrate your own green thumb by grabbing a pot, some dirt and seeds, and grow your own food. Fresh herbs are a tasty way to start. Celebrate Cooking: There is nothing like preparing a healthy meal with your own two hands. This is one way we like to teach kids about nutrition. Cooking at home is a great way to get your family interested in trying new healthy foods. Prepare meals at home and you can decrease calorie consumption, reduce stress and save money. If you are adventurous enough to try a new recipe, perhaps try one from a different region of the world (Greek, Thai, German, etc.). The entire family can learn how other cultures eat and celebrate food. Celebrate being active: Encourage one another to get active and move more on a daily basis. This way, you can enjoy the foods and drinks you all love from time to time and balance it out with exercise. Tell 5 friends about Food Day: The success of Food Day lies in people participating in it. Tell your friends and neighbors about it, and mention it on your social networks. Post pictures of the meals you make on Pinterest and Instagram, and share recipes on Facebook and Twitter. Make Food Day so much fun this year that you can't wait until October 24 rolls around again next year. The most important ingredient: The most important ingredient in Food Day is you! Use October 24 to start- or celebrate - eating a healthier diet and putting your family's diet on track. Food Day is not just a day; it's a year-long catalyst for healthier diets and a better food system. Let's use this energy to make a meaningful and long-lasting difference!                                                                                         ~ Dt. Deepalekha Banerjee
