Eat healthy, stay sharp

Because you are what you eat! Ditch the chips and the cola, try something new.

Grilled/roasted chicken: Fried chicken is a very common food item found at all fast food joints. Avoid it. A healthier option is roast or grilled chicken (minus the fat).

Whole wheat bread sandwiches: Healthy sandwich is prepared by using whole wheat bread slices, with veggies such as tomato, cucumber, capsicum, grated carrot, beetroot, lettuce etc. Apply only a dash of butter to cut down the calories. For egg eaters, a minced boiled egg layered with a dash of mayonnaise can make a sumptuous sandwich.

Fruit smoothies: Colas provide only empty calories and zero nutrients whereas a smoothie is a blended and sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruit (fruit smoothie) and in special cases can contain chocolate or peanut butter. In addition to fruit, many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey, ice etc. Smoothies have a milkshake-like consistency which makes them thicker than colas. They can also contain milk, yogurt or ice cream, thus providing nutrients like proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Some of the commonly used fruits used to prepare a smoothie are bananas, strawberry, mango, raspberry, grapes, blueberry, oranges etc. Try the traditional mango shake, which is really a summer smoothie, or a pineapple smoothie with crushed ice and sugar (without milk).

Whole wheat baked non-veg burger: If you can’t live without non-veg food, then this fast food is for you. Use whole wheat bread and stuff it with minced chicken along with lots of veggies to make a chicken patty. This burger will add taste to your tongue along. What’s more, it is healthy too!

Baked samosa: Baking samosas instead of deep frying them reduces the calories, thus it makes it a healthy option. The outer covering should be prepared with whole wheat flour and the stuffing could include mixed chopped and boiled veggies such as peas, carrots, potatoes, etc.
