“Go for meditation and try your hands at healthy food” said my niece when I told her about my stressful routine. I guess everybody has this routine which is an add on to the already full plate of issues.
Taking her advice, I started with it. She showed me an app named Ingredients Handbook (Available on both Appstore and Playstore). I suggest you guys must check it out. It is all about ingredients and their values. I realized that cooking is a way to channelize my energy. Looking at the hot steam of rice is more meditating to me than a proper meditation. It is the perfect way to use that extra energy in cooking rather than acting weird with your family. Cooking doesn’t mean that you have to use all the spices and cook something great, it’s about knowing the value of each ingredient you use. Simple dishes are a therapy for you. You should go for something healthy like herbs, oil and roots, which are plenty in this app. I’ll let you all know the ones I have used.
The ingredients in the app have been effectively categorized for the ease of the user. Lemon balm is one such herb which I use regularly. Chop the leaves and add them to the salad. These leaves help in reducing the stress level. Then comes Basil which is a sacred plant in India. Pasta seasoning with basil will give it a strong and a different flavor. Rich in antioxidants, basil prevents a lot of diseases. What if your someone helps you boost your blood pressure? Well, parsley can be of help. Rich in a lot of vitamins parsley can be used in tea or green sauce with nachos.
In addition to this, Nutrient Chart checks the nutritional values of all Ingredients. Sitting on the chair at work place for long hours can result in digestion issues like heartburn or upset stomach which will result in irritation. So don’t pour out your irritation on others and go for peppermint based mocktails. Getting up early, leaving for work and then driving back home – when do you work out? Actually you don’t, even I don’t get time on weekdays. Muscle pain is inevitable under such circumstances. Rosemary can relieve you with that. You can either add it to marinated chicken or olive oil.
This is not all, check the benefits, excessive hazards, deficiency hazards and much more relating to 1000 such ingredients. Traveling comes with pollution. Pollution enhances acne. Thyme oil can help you reduce this. You can stuff your turkey with thyme leaves and enjoy health. Losing appetite is one of the reasons why people take stress. Have something, that might calm you down. Fennel seed soup can help you in getting hold of your appetite. Must have seen “Olaf” (the snowman type character in the movie “Frozen”) playing with dandelion seeds while dreaming of summers. You wouldn’t have imagined how useful those dandelions could be. Go for sauteed dandelion greens which will result in a cleansed system and improved digestion. Beat the boredom and explore your knowledge with QUIZ.
There is much more to learn about the food you eat. Try this Ingredients Handbook app and say yes to a “Healthy Life”. It really works!
