You’ll change your diet after knowing the benefits of Banana

In the fasting days of Navratri, the instant hunger quencher is a banana. Filling and easily accessible. Ever tried any recipe made out of it? You can try them all – from the banana chips, smoothies, raw banana kofta to the pakoras.

We bet you’ll change your diet after knowing the benefits of Banana. They are too many to ignore.

1.) They are the gateway to feeling happy. Bananas contain tryptophan that further converts into serotonin – generating the ‘happy’ hormones in the brain.

2.) Eating 2 bananas before a tough physical exercise gives you an ability to deliver more and maintains the blood-sugar level

3.) Eat bananas and get rid of the muscle cramps during aerobics and leg cramps during the night time

4.) It’s a rich source of calcium thus consuming it compensates the calcium loss during urination. It also strengthens the bones

5.) Bananas might fill your stomach soon, but they help in shading kilos. They also lower the risk of type-two diabetes

6.) As this fruit is rich in vitamin B-6, it makes the nervous system stronger and increase the number of white blood cells in the body

7.) Are you anemic? Have bananas. The iron present in them helps in boosting the hemoglobin level

8.) US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has declared banana helpful in decreasing blood pressure and guarding against the heart attack and stroke

9.) Bananas also help in easy digestion and releasing the harmful toxins and metals from the body

10.) Due to the potassium content, banana makes the brain more attentive and thus, we become smarter

So, do still not fill like eating bananas?

This Navratri, go exotic with your taste

Navratri is a season of worshipping Goddess Durga. Along with that, you witness a lot of hustle-bustle and colorfulness around; like the decorated temples, lightened Bengali markets, and evening prayers. But one of the fascinating aspects is the special food we consume. This Navratri, go exotic with your taste.

Well, usually you are reminded of those chapatis made with buckwheat flour. And of course, that simple and subtle ‘aloo ki sabzi’. It’s all flavorful, but instead of buckwheat chapatis, you can make the parathas or pakoras of buckwheat. Stuffing could be of potatoes and even paneer. Or what about banana chips eaten with boiled meshed potatoes (seasoned with lemon, salt, and chilies). You can also fry the ‘Arbi’ (colocasia) with a minimal use of oil and serve it with buckwheat ‘Puris’. Ever tasted a Buckwheat Dosa? It’s delicious.

So, you see there are so many varieties that can make the food exotic during these days.

Go sweet with khoya til laddoo
It’s for sure that your will receive enough calories with something sweet. So, why not to try khoya til laddoo. Khoya is basically the dried whole milk. The roasted and  grinded sesame seeds are mixed with khoya and powdered sugar. Believe us, it is the replacement chocolates.
Mix of fruity flavours – Fruit Raita
Finely chop different fruits of your choice say  pineapple, oranges, banana and mix them in yogurt salted with rock salt and spiced up with pepper and roasted sesame seeds. It will compensate for the tooty fruity ice-cream to be avoided in the fasting season.
Saboodana kheer that smells heaven
The fine saboodana is blended in hot sweet milk and fragmented with cardamom and saffron. The kheer tastes awesome, sabo tastes like jelly crystals. Try this kheer and you won’t mind if Navratri season stays the entire year.
After being informed about these recipes, we hope that these nine days become  more pleasant for you.

Foodie pleasure that comes with Navratri

The days of purity, worship, devotion, and spirituality are the days of Goddes Durga. With the dawn, of Navratri, we are sure that you are not just looking forward to worshiping Goddess Durga but, also to narrowing the waistline by eating tasty Navratri delicacies for nine days.
We express gratitude in these holy days for what we have already been blessed with and for granting us the power to venture successfully  towards a bright future. Hindus keep fast and eat only after the evening Puja. Their hunger is quenched by eating the traditional delicacies with no use of common salt, onion and garlic. Instead of common salt, the food is made salty with sendha namak – the pure rock salt. Among the most popular Navratri recipes in North-India, there come the vrat wale aloo, singhare ki poori, dahi aloo, dahi arbi, jeera dahi and aloo tomato sabzi.
As you observe, there are many recipes which include the aloo as it is an excellent source of carbohydrates. Instead of cereals like rice and wheat, the flour of Kuttu or buckwheat is used. Dahi or yogurt again contains calcium and special proteins that make up for the entire day hunger.
May in these Navratri season, you replenish your soul with reverence for higher power and health with pure recipes.
