Let’s have a drink, Cheers!

Social drinking has become a popular trend today. Whether it is a social gathering, wedding or a business meeting, alcohol has made a splash in our lives and how.

However, the bitter truth remains – Alcohol makes you fat as well as holds a notorious reputation for causing hangovers and/or irresponsible or violent behavior. With 7 calories per gram of alcohol, it is more fattening than the carbs – roti, rice, bread and pasta – which are painted as villains for weight gain. Now, given how everyone is desperately trying to lose weight, alcohol can completely derail your healthy diet plan.

At bon happetee, we understand that alcohol has become an integral component of our lives. Whether it is clubbing, going out with friends or winding down on a stressful day, alcohol finds its place.

Hence, we bring to you some helpful tips that will limit the damage, especially weight gain, aka the dreaded beer belly. Continue reading

Let’s go the fresh and home-made way

We live in the era of fast food where we prefer grabbing meals that are prepared in a jiffy. We eat salad mixed with a packaged salad dressing, a commercially prepared jam/pickle with roti, or home-made tortillas/nachos with ready made salsa. Our fast-paced lifestyles have drastically changed our food choices.

With mothers juggling between home and work, preparing 3 proper meals at home poses a huge challenge. Today, food and beverage companies are targeting children to foster brand-building and influence food product purchase behavior. And with this kind of exposure and crammed schedule, commercially prepared food is a win-win situation for the mother and child.

Short cut is often the wrong cut. This statement holds true in case of packed foods too! Continue reading

Why some people never fall sick

I often wondered how all my life, I had never seen my grandmother spend a single day in bed or experience a bout of cold, cough or fever. So, one day I asked her “What is the secret to your good health?” She replied, “I sleep by 9 pm, wake up by 5, eat fruits daily, eat only home-cooked food and go for a walk every day for 40 minutes.” Evidently, her disciplined lifestyle is the secret to her strong immunity.

As like any other system of our body, a strong immune system calls for a healthy lifestyle which comprises of adequate nourishment, sleep and exercise to function to its optimum capacity.

Now, we are aware that habits inculcated during childhood stay with us throughout life. Hence, it is important to ingrain healthy habits at a tender age.

While I have briefly touched upon the factors that are essential for staying away from ailments, let’s look at what factors should you look at for ensuring you stay as healthy as my grandma: Continue reading
