Honey Diet - A sweeter alternative

In this era, where people are constantly on the go, health and healthy eating has taken a back-seat. There are a few who have realized the bounty of possessing an excellent health and they even try to stay healthy, but do no manage to achieve that target. I am not talking about the fitness gurus and health fanatics here, but normal people like me and you who want to stay healthy but at the same time do not want to compromise in terms of food or lifestyle. In short, people who want the best of both the worlds.

As a blogger, and that too, a food blogger, a typical day of mine comprise of a few meetings, some of which happen over lunch and/or tea. So basically, I end up eating out every other day, if put prudently. Plus, experimenting with food in my kitchen for some of the blog content does not always result in healthy food. Amidst all this, healthy eating goes out for a toss, no matter how hard I try to stick to salads and green teas on my meetings.

After getting a bold zillion watt shock in the form of a friend falling prey to Vitamin deficiency and fainting whilst commuting in our Mumbai local trains during peak hour, I have come to realize that no lunch meeting is more important than my healthy, for which a wholesome and balanced diet forms a major part and also plays a very pivotal role.

Hence, today, I am going to stress the importance of having a balanced diet and how it helps in maintaining you in your top form:

  1. A balanced diet helps your body procure its Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of all the Vitamins and Minerals necessary for the body to function smoothly, without any glitch.
  2. A balanced diet helps to strengthen your immune system against illnesses and infections, which are really effortless to get infected with during seasonal changes in India.
  3. A balanced diet helps your body stay happy. You would ask how, well, as you consume less grease and junk, you liver is not required overtime to detoxify your body and even your bowel system remains efficient. 
  4. In the long run, a well balanced diet helps in combating health problems like Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Obesity and a host of other lifestyle diseases.
  5. You will save money! I know, you raised an eye-brow here, so let me clear this point for you; well, fortunately, in India, the cost of fresh vegetable and whole grains is still cheaper and more affordable than processed junk, unlike in West where this phenomena is inverse! Hence, swapping that burger in favour of half a kilo of any fresh fruit benefits your pocket as well as your health too!

 Notice the smallest portion of the pyramid for foodstuffs like oil and sugar? Well, why not take a more healthier approach by swapping sugar with honey? Taste plus health, isn't that a win-win combination? Recently, Dabur has introduced Honey Diet, you can check that out too.
