Food Combinations
21 November 2017
FOOD COMBINATIONS Nutrition gives us Nourishment. While Nutrition has always been a term used in the context of food, the body is actually nourished in many ways and ‘food’ is just one of them. Every healthy food, by itself, has nutrition to offer, nevertheless, there is a very effective yet overlooked way to maximize nutrient absorption and reap its benefit and that is by making simple food combinations. So let’s understand how to get the best nourishment from foods. Topping the list of food combinations is a Cereal - Pulse combination  This combination is the best way to get good quality protein, especially for Vegetarians. Cereals generally lack in an amino acid called lysine but are high in tryptophan, methionine and cystine. Legumes/Pulses lack in amino acids like tryptophan, methionine and cystine but rich in lysine. When we combine these two food groups we get all essential amino acid and improve the quality of proteins. This combination will almost make it a COMPLETE PROTEIN.  For example Rice + Black gram = Idly / Dosa / Uttapam  Wheat + Toor Dal = Puran Poli / Dal-dhokli  Rice + Green-gram Dal = Khichdi / Pongal  Wheat + Chick-pea = Chappati with Chole  Rice + Toor Dal = Sambar-rice / Dal-rice Note - Every Cereal - Legume/Pulse combination is best achieved in recommended proportions.

​ FRUIT THAT REMOVES SORROW – Indian Jujube (Bor/Ber) Bor is another winter seasonal fruit. Although a lesser known fruit as it grows only in tropical regions like ours, it has tremendous Nutrition to offer. It is loaded with antioxidants, Vit A, Vit C, Calcium and 18 out of 24 essential amino acids (that’s a good score) that our body needs. It is a storehouse of energy. That’s why it continues to be a prominent part of Ayurvedic medicine. Bor, since ages, has been called as ‘the fruit that removes sorrow’ as it has innate sedative properties and soothes the nervous system. Prevents cancer/leukaemia – strengthens immune system – teeth, bones, muscles healthy – skin healthy & young - aids digestion - helps relieve constipation & do flatulence - soothes a sore throat – better pumping of blood - helps deal anxiety, insomnia, psychosis, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s. Precaution - Bor is a mild laxative hence should be avoided by people suffering from diarrhoea. Pic - Apple bor
