Run for your health but don’t run while you eat

Modernisation and globalisation has brought with itself a lot of stress with people feeling overburdened with work, not having enough hours to eat properly, exercise and do daily activities. There is no time to have proper meals, people eat on the run in their cars, while crossing roads, eat a fast food drive through, on their desks and so on. The result of these ‘quick bites’ is; the food doesn’t get digested properly leading to health issues like obesity, insomnia, headaches, body aches or even a poor and disturbed digestive system.
Our body needs time, energy and rest to digest the food we eat. If one is not spending enough time, or is under stress, the body automatically goes into the conserve mode and stops or minimises the process of digestion due to lack of stomach acids and digestive enzymes thus resulting in acidity, bloating, heart burn, fatigue. Nutritional deficiencies can also pop up affecting the overall health of the individual.
A healthy lifestyle along with nutritious and well guided diet is important for good health. If you cannot avoid a hectic day make sure you eat light, right and easy to digest foods. Diet mantra guides you with some healthy and light foods.
• Load up on fresh-cut vegetables and fruit. Bring along a small cooler with ice packs to keep your snacks fresh.
• Drink plenty of water.
• Opt for sandwiches made with whole grain bread and peanut butter or lean meats.
• Smoothies: Low calorie fruit based smoothies are a wonderful healthy option.
• Nuts such as almonds and walnuts contain polyunsaturated fats and are easy to carry.
• Add bitter herbs to the foods which you are carrying as it stimulates the production of stomach acids.
Remember! Lifestyle management is the key to healthy and disease free life.
