East your fruits, Don't drink them
When we can choose the fruit itself, why do we need to #juice the fruit? We lose all the fibre when juicing the fruit. What’s even worse - that most juice brands have added sugar. Next time read the Back of pack and nutritional information. Cold-pressed or not, we still don’t get the #fibre.
Avoid Sugar to avoid poor immunity

Sugar is still sugar. Stay within daily consumption limits of sugar for a healthy,
Choosing your daily bread for daily immunity
Which one would you rather choose? We have moved from #whitebread to #brownbread - it is one small step in the right direction. But, choosing a #wholegrain bread, gives us the nutrition of #grains that are fully intact. Choosing #multigrainbread is another good choice - but there is no guarantee that #multigrain bread is made with 100% whole grains or that it is free of refined #grains. Let’s read the ingredients and be more aware of the foods we eat.
Eat More of Good Fats, not Bad Fats
Good Fats vs Bad Fats - We can make better choice. Eat more good fats, instead of bad fats. Fats are an essential part of healthy diet. Avocado is an example of Good Fat but not locally available in India. Ghee and Eggs are another example

Table Salt vs Himalayan Pink Salt - We can make better choice.

Retains only 2 minerals - sodium and chloride. The more conscious we are about our food choices, the better we can live later in life.

If you eat mindfully, it is a sign that you love your health. And we immensely respect you for that.
Mindful eating makes us watchful about what we eat. It aims to transform our relationship with food by focusing on the hows and whys of eating, encouraging a more holistic point of view. Ultimately, this means we have a better chance of understanding what foods nourish us and what foods help us stay healthy while also encouraging a deeper appreciation of every meal, every mouthful, and every ingredient.
If you prioritise your health & food intake combined with little bit of exercise, here’s to you, here’s to self care and here’s to eating with awareness
Nourish your body with good food, Nourish your mind with fulfilment and nourish your heart with satisfaction.
Real fitness is Fitness from inside
If you understand that health comes from within, it is a sign that you do a lot for your health. And we immensely respect you for that.
Real fitness is how you feel on the inside. Not being breathless after taking the stairs, always feeling positive and uplifted and having higher immunity. Fitness is about being “fit” from within.
Changing the focus to nurturing your body, rather than changing your body’s shape/size can help in the long run. What we decide to consume and put in our body really defines our health and wellness. The goal is to be strong and sound from within. Not only vanity, but wellness too.
Fitness and Exercise Plan
If you frequently take the staircase, instead of an elevator or boring escalator, it is a sign that you love your health. And we immensely respect you for that.
We’ve all heard the advice to take the stairs rather than the elevator. Climbing stairs makes sense for your general health, but it also happens to be one of the best things you can do to get in great shape, lose weight, and attain peak cardiovascular efficiency.Here are a few benefits you absolutely need to know -
• Muscle Tone - Climbing stairs provides a targeted exercise to the gluteus, thighs, hips, and abdominals. You are working your lower body with rapid repetition that moves your legs through a complete range of motion.
• Bone Strength - Stair climbing is a weight bearing exercise. That’s because it pits us against the force of gravity. In so doing, it enhances your bone density.
• Weight Loss - Health Experts say that climbing around 8 flights of stairs on everyday basis can burn a lot of extra calories in your body and can make you feel active and energetic.
Take this small step today, get moving, climb up to a healthier tomorrow.
