October 2018 Guide to Conscious Eating

October guide to conscious eating

 

Festivities ahead! Feasting, fasting and everything in between! At the same time, October heat is back with a vengeance.

So while we plan our late night desserts and card snacks, it is also important to think about what we are eating and whether it is a sensible choice for the season.

Here are our top picks for October and a few tips on including them in your diet!

The guavas and tomatoes make for light meal components that pack a flavor punch while pumpkin seeds are great fillers for salads or trail mixes.

Ghee is a digestion-friendly fat that imparts flavor and provides lubrication to joints. Let us know your favorite ways to use these ingredients!  

Guavas

The best of the guavas—pink or white—are now entering the markets.

Guavas are a heart-healthy fruit with a plethora of benefits ranging from aiding digestion to menstruation relief to skin and hair health and more.

Eat fresh guavas the good old way with a sprinkling of salt and red chili powder or add fully ripe guavas to salads and raitas.

Also try using them in a sweet and sour subzi to eat with parathas!

Ghee

Of all fats, despite all the bad press it gets, ghee is among the lightest to digest.

That if, you don’t free khoya-stuffed sweets in it and then dunk it in sugar syrup!

Use ghee as a baking fat (replace butter or margarine with ghee) to make your bakes fragrant and Saatvik, or cook your subzis in ghee using minimal spices to enhance their flavor.

Tomatoes

This is also the season when a variety of tomatoes are available—big juicy ones, tiny spoon tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes in myriad colors, cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, and so on.

Think about tomatoes beyond soups, salads, and gravy bases; try using them like you would use fruit in dessert (they’re great with jaggery!) or simply sundry them and store them for later use!

Tomatoes contain a host of vitamins that are responsible for heart, hair, skin and digestive health so this one is a win-win all the way!

Pumpkin seeds

A healthy, light snack to tide you over until the heavy dinner coming up is always a great idea.

Pumpkin seeds are full of fibre and antioxidants and contain magnesium, which is important for bone health.

Carry a pack of salted or plain pumpkin seeds in your handbag or tuck them away in the glove compartment of your car for those sudden hunger pangs.

Or make your own trail mix with a mix of seeds and some fried fruit!
