GUESS my name!! An Indian #superfood - my green leaves have been used in traditional cuisines for years to give the #delicious tangy flavour and often #pickled to make the yummiest sides to go with rice! Here are some of my health benefits:
1. Good source of carbohydrates, fiber and protein. It is also an excellent source of vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B9 (folic acid) and vitamin C.
2. High in dietary fiber that can help improve your digestive health.
3. Being a rich source of iron, helps in increasing the production of red blood cells, thus preventing #anemia caused by iron deficiency.
4. It has remarkable ability to lower the bad #cholesterol or low density lipoproteins (LDL) levels and increase the good cholesterol or high density lipoproteins (HDL) levels in the body.
5. It is a great source of potassium and magnesium, hence a great food to prevent #hypertension.
6. It contains high levels of vitamin A that helps in improving eyesight and preventing night blindness.

Did you know that food combinations play a big role into how your food is assimilated? Not all food combinations are created equal and hence their consumption can do more harm than good! In fact a wrong combination of two or multiple good foods can lead to a blend that will disturb your digestive system and cause allergic reactions or inflammation in the body. These are termed as "VIRUDDHA AHARA" in Ayurveda. Avoid and stop taking these combinations to stay healthy. Learn more here: https://buff.ly/2LlbxWu
Most common in Viruddha Ahara list:
1. Fruits with Milk - Yes you heard it right! Banana Shake or Mango Shake is not a good idea after all.
2. Fish or Sea Food with Dairy.
3. Heating the honey - So, honey in the teas is not a good idea!!
4. Consumption of yoghurt or melons (including cucumbers) in the night.
5. Milk and yoghurt together.
6. Tapioca with melons.
7. Honey and Ghee in equal quantities.
