How to reduce Snacking
Before we discuss about how to reduce snacking, Let us talk about the word snacking is.
Snacking is that portion of food which we have between our regular meals. Generally, snack food symbolize fried, processed and high calories food items like packaged food, chips, cookies or homemade snacks.
They may or may not be healthy. Generally (nothing should come here) they are good in taste, color and aroma which contribute to stimulate hunger and grab them.
Mostly evening time or 4’o clock hunger fires up the feeling to have something spicy and fried instead of something healthy. As I feel evening cravings for snacks leads to add some extra unwanted ponds. It is advisable to choose nourishing healthy snacks which keeps you full for longer.
Here I am sharing few tips which may help you to reduce cravings for unhealthy snacks:
- Have your meal properly: Make your stomach full while having any meal of the day. It will help to reduce the cravings for tea time snacks.
- Fiber rich, high protein snacks are helpful in weight loss as they are harder to digest. So you will feel satiated for longer and won’t eat unnecessarily.
- Drink plenty of water: According to a study when you feel hungry after sometime of having meals and crave for snacks, you are actually thirsty. Drink a glass full of water, chances are pretty good that the wish of having snacks will vanish.
- Pick up a fruit when you desire to have something sweet, it will help you to avoid extra calories.
- Divert your attention: A research shows that generally we crave for snacks when we are sitting idle. So next time when you feel so, just divert your attention to other activities or talk to someone, and you will forget about your craving for snack.
- Choose a small plate while serving yourself. It will stop you from overeating,
- Place snacks items out of your sight in your kitchen- ‘out of sight out of mind’.
- Keep yourself stress free because studies show that we tend to eat more while in stress.
- Do not wait to have meals until you feel starved because then chances are higher, that you’ll over eat.
- If you are working late nights or your kids are studying, try to replace cookies with almonds, fox nuts, or popcorns. These items will provide you certain nutrients and keeps you energetic too.
But sometimes do treat yourself with the snack you craved for.
Healthy eating leads to healthier you!!!!
जीवन और खानपान
दोस्तों! आज हम बात करेंगे कि क्या हमारा खानपान सच में हमारे जीवन को प्रभावित करता है और कैसे?हम क्या खाते हैं, कैसे और कब खाते हैं, ये वो छोटी-छोटी बातें हैं जो हमारे जीवन पर गहरा प्रभाव डालती हैं। एक संतुलित और खुशहाल जीवन जीने के लिए संतुलित और सेहतमंद खाना बहुत ही आवश्यक है। इस विषय में आगे बात करने से पहले हम बात करेंगे अमेरिका के एक ह्रदय रोग विशेषज्ञ डॉक्टर विलियम डेविस की 2011 में लिखी एक पुस्तक जिसका नाम था “wheat belly”। यह किताब हमारी फूड हैबिट्स को लेकर काफी चर्चा में रही।इस किताब में बताया गया, कि अगर आपको मोटापा, डायबिटीज या अन्य हृदय रोगों से मुक्ति चाहिए तो अपने खानपान में बदलाव लाने की बहुत आवश्यकता है।गेहूं के स्थान पर पुराने भारतीयों की तरह मक्का, बाजरा, जौ, चना या बाजरा, इन अनाजों को ज्यादा प्रयोग में लाना चाहिए। भारत में बढ़ती हुई डायबिटीज एवं हृदय रोगों की दर का कारण 1980 के बाद से लगातार सुबह शाम हर समय के भोजन में गेहूं का बढ़ता हुआ सेवन है।देखा जाए तो गेहूं वास्तव में भारत की फसल नहीं है। यह बहुत बाद में भारत में आया उससे पहले भारतवासी मोटा अनाज यानी कि जो की रोटी या फिर उसके बाद मौसम के अनुसार आने वाले अनाज जैसे मक्का, बाजरा और ज्वार की रोटी खाना पसंद करते थे जिसका उनके सेहतमंद रहने में बहुत बड़ा योगदान था। इनके महत्व को देखते हुए ही हम देखते हैं कि मांगलिक कार्यों में भी इन अनाजों में से जौ व चावल का ही प्रयोग किया जाता है। प्राचीन काल में आम भारतीयों के घरों में बेजड (मिक्स अनाज) की रोटी या फिर जौ की रोटी का ही प्रयोग किया जाता था। गेहूं का उपयोग बहुत ही सीमित था। उस समय का मुख्य अनाज जौ था जिसके बहुत सारे फायदे हैं जैसे कि:
.जो में अत्यधिक मात्रा में फाइबर होने के कारण वजन कम करने में सहायक है।
. जो डायबिटीज को नियंत्रित करने में मदद करता है।
. गठिया रोग को ठीक करने में इसका सेवन बहुत उपयोगी है।
गेहूं में पाया जाने वाला ग्लूटेन उसने लोच पैदा करता है और इस वजह से उसकी रोटी आसानी से कम समय में और दिखने में खूबसूरत बन जाती है।लेकिन यह अनाज इतनी आसानी से पचता नहीं है। गेहूं के बढ़ते उपयोग के कारण ग्लूटेन एलर्जी भारत में कुछ समय से बढ़ती जा रही है। इस एलर्जी और कई और बीमारियों से काफी हद तक बचने के लिए अब समय आ गया है वापस पुराने खानपान की तरफ जाने का या उन्हें अपनाने का। उपयोग को कम करके और दूसरे अनाजों को जैसे ज्वार, बाजरा, मक्का रागी, चना इत्यादि को अपने जीवन शैली में शामिल करने से काफी हद तक अपने स्वास्थ में सुधार ला सकते हैं। इन अनाजों को अपनी इच्छा अनुसार मिक्स करके उसका आटा प्रयोग में ला सकते हैं और इस से बनी रोटियां जब आप खाएंगे तो अपने स्वास्थ्य में आने वाले परिवर्तन को आप खुद महसूस करेंगे।लेकिन कुछ अनाज ऐसे होते हैं जिनका आटा लंबे समय तक पीसकर नहीं रखा जा सकता वह या तो कड़वा हो जाता है या खराब होने लगता है जैसे बाजरा, मक्का आदि। इनका बेहतर उपयोग करने के लिए आप इन्हें ताजा पीस सकते हैं। वैसे भी एक अध्ययन के अनुसार आटे को लंबे समय तक पिसा हुआ रखने से उसकी गुणवत्ता कम होने लगती है और उसकी पौष्टिकता कुछ हद तक नष्ट होने लगती हैं तथा उसमें ना दिखाई देने वाले सूक्ष्म बैक्टीरिया उत्पन्न होने लगते हैं।बाजार में लगी हुई बड़ी बड़ी चक्कीयो पर जब हम अपना अनाज पिसवाते है तो एक तो उन चक्कीयों का RPMबहुत ज्यादा होने के कारण आटा गर्म होकर इसका निकलता है, दूसरा वह उस वातावरण के वायुजनित कीटाणुओं से संक्रमित हो सकता है।और आप कितना भी अच्छा अनाज लेकर उसे बाहर पिसवाने जाएं लेकिन उसमें मिलावट की संभावनाएं बढ़ जाती हैं।
इन सभी मुश्किलों को खत्म करने के लिए हम ग्रीन फ्यूचर में लेकर आए हैं आकार में बहुत ही छोटी लेकिन अद्भुत परिणामों के साथ घरेलू आटा चक्कियां।ये चक्कियां आकार में छोटी, आकर्षक एवं हर तरह की रसोई के लिए उपयुक्त है। इनको प्रयोग करना बेहद आसान है और यह किसी भी तरह के अनाज को बहुत आसानी से और बहुत कम समय में पीस सकती हैं। आटा पीसते वक्त इनसे किसी भी तरह का आटा उड़ता नहीं है जिससे आपकी रसोई बिल्कुल साफ रहती है और इसमें लगा हुआ auto cleaning brush आटे को अंदर नहीं रहने देता जिससे आपको हर बार मशीन को अंदर से साफ करने की जरूरत नहीं पड़ती है जो कि आपके काम को बहुत आसान कर देता है।बहुत कम बिजली का उपयोग करके चलने वाली यह मशीन आज के समय में हर रसोई की जरूरत है। हमारे सभी मॉडल्स को देखने के लिए आप हमारी वेबसाइट देख सकते हैं और वहां अपने परिवार के साइज के अनुसार और अपनी आवश्यकता के अनुसार आप अपना मॉडल पसंद कर सकते हैं।

Health is true wealth
Friends, we have often heard the proverb since our childhood, “Health is wealth”. This simple line signifies the importance of good health in one’s life. If we are healthy, physically and mentally we can perform better in all areas of our life. Money is only one of the sources to gain peace, success, health and ultimately happiness of course. But money cannot buy any of these if we are suffering from any incurable diseases. The most commonly discussed aspects of health are physical and mental health. If we are sound in both ways, our energy chakras synchronize better which enhances our performance. Having good physical health means our body is in good state and is working pretty well. We should maintain a fit body structure. In my Idea, we should follow the below given tips to acquire a good physical health:
- Switch to healthy diet: This one sentence includes many meanings like, include healthy ingredients in your diet, try to be punctual with your meals, have right food combinations etc.
- Exercise daily: To be physically fit, one should workout daily, indoors or outdoors. A simple walk of 45 minutes can also be fruitful. Using stairs rather than elevators is also very helpful.
- Take adequate and sound sleep: To energize your body and make it work properly, sound sleep plays a vital role. Ideally 7 to 9 hours of sleep is advisable for adults.
- Balanced diet: A diet which includes all the nutrients, fibers and fluids in appropriate amount is called balanced diet. Try to include all kinds of nutrients, vitamins and minerals in your routine diet.
- Try to avoid the consumption of white poisons in your kitchen which are salt and sugar as much as you can.
It is all we have discussed about physical health, now it seems bit harder to define mental health though. Mental health involves a person’s social, emotional and psychological well-being. Then, what should we do for the betterment of mental state? According to experts, following are the points that should be considered to take care of your mental health:
- What you eat: Yes, food is not only meant to nourish your body but your mind too. Food has a great impact on our mental development and thought process. To get the detailed information on this you can find out my other blog, “You are, what you eat”.
- Your attitude towards life: you get only one life so enjoy it to the fullest. Adopt a positive attitude towards life, things will definitely turn positive later or sooner.
- How soon will you bounce back from hard times: Ups and downs are an inevitable part of our life. Everybody has to face them at least once in life, whether, it is personal or professional. Only way to deal with this is to be patient and recollect your senses and energy to combat the situation.
On a whole, it does not matter how we differentiate the both, the important fact is to approach our complete well-being that should be nourished by adopting right lifestyle and habits. As we see, amongst all the factors food plays the most important role to attain physical and mental health.

Happiness is a choice
My dear friends,
With this blog we will try to regain our mental peace which was lost somewhere going through this unprecedented time. I know this wild year has put us in an absolute trauma, confusion, restrictions and has left us in extreme despondency. We all have been facing difficulties in our lives before but when all the difficult moments come together in our way suddenly, we develop rabbit hole thinking in us with the strong sense of uncertainty. When life seems extremely stressful from outside try to be strong inside to suppress all the chaos and clutter around. I know it’s quite difficult to quell all the negativity when there is already too much negative happening all around. We are bound to stay at home all the time and sometimes feel stuck or depressed. But I once read somewhere, “When you can’t go outside, go inside.” Talk to your inner self. It’s a time taking process and not easy to hold your subconscious mind but practicing it in your routine will help you to achieve the goal.
The very first step to move forward on this path is to know yourself, your interests and things and people who make you happy.
Set your priorities and goals in life.
Write the procedure to achieve them.
Start from as and where you are.
Don’t expect perfection in everything you do initially, just begin.
Gradually find the scope of improvement and learn from your mistakes in past.
If your strategies are not working well, change the way not the destination.
Accept failures and retry.
If life is asking you to slow down, just be calm, take a break, rejuvenate yourself and come back with new energy.
“Slow and steady wins the race”
Despite of your hectic schedule spare few minutes to spend with yourself and you will be amazed to find an eternal source of happiness within you only.
Being perfect does not ensure your happiness. In my view, happiness is a choice, one can choose to be happy in adverse conditions too.
Try to deal with your stress only, do not allow unnecessary stress which is not yours to add extra burden on you or complicate your life. Learn to say no to things or people who are not worth your attention. Always prepare yourself to try something new in your life and take the challenges. Avoid to be stagnant in life because it brings frustration. Recollect your energy, open your windows, expand your horizon, take a deep breath and start something new from where you are which will strengthen you from inside and help to find a better you. Don’t try or expect to control everything happening in your surroundings. Make yourself a free bird to touch the sky.
Do let me know in comment section how and when you started to march on this path?? Waiting for your response……..
Wish you all the happiness in this world!!!!

Multigrain vs Wholegrain
Most of the people tend to get confuse between multigrain and wholegrain. Are multigrain and wholegrain interchangeable terms? Of course, not! To have a better understanding one has to understand the basic attributes of both.
Whole grain is one which retains all of its natural contents- bran, endosperm and germ. Therefore, whole grain is a great source of vitamins, nutrients and fiber. Whereas, bran and germ are generally stripped off in refined grains to give them a longer shelf life which makes them less nutritious.
On the other hand multigrain food comprises of more than one grain, but not necessarily all are whole grains. These grains can be wheat, barley, millet, corn, black gram, ragi, buckwheat etc.
Now the question arises which is healthier between two. Multigrain may sound a better and healthier option but it may not be if it includes refined grains. Nowadays, people prefer multigrain bread, buns, kulchas over white ones which is definitely a good choice but whole wheat bakery products are a better option instead. As multigrain may not include all goodness of whole grains and may deprive you of the benefits if it contains different refined grains. After you have gone through the above information your preferences between two might change. Multigrain may prove healthier than whole wheat only if it contains different whole grains which means the grains used in it have all three parts of it. In these three parts, bran is a great source of fiber to fix your digestive upsets and make it even smoother.
While in endosperm, the interior layer of grain is packed with carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins and other minerals.
At last comes this tiny part of grain, germ. This small part holds many benefits. Germ is an excellent source of magnesium, zinc and phosphorus etc.
To get the best out of your multigrain, nothing is better than milling them at home in your kitchen.

Things to be considered during Covid – 19
This unprecedented period has taught us a lot. We have become more independent and self-reliant. We have adopted hygienic habits in our daily routine.

Since eating healthy has become of utmost importance, staying home and having home cooked meal is the right thing to do. We should strictly follow the safety measures against contracting the virus like avoiding outdoor exposures, maintaining social distancing, wearing mask, and frequent hand wash or sanitizing. Grocery, vegetables and milk are some basic essentials which we have to buy frequently or daily basis. In that case Greenfuture private limited puts together useful tips for safety aspects:
Wear mask and gloves: As we all know according to worldwide safety guidelines wearing gloves and mask is compulsory when you go out of the house to avoid direct contact with things that have been touched before.
Avoid touching unnecessary items: while buying groceries, fruits and vegetables etc. try not to touch extra items.
Carry your own shopping bag: Carrying your own shopping bags when you step out to shop will protect you from the risk of directly holding many plastic or other bags.
Choose online payment modes: Try to make payments online as exchanging currency is highly risky because it passes through many hands.
Prefer online shopping: Avoid buying things physically from shops as much as you can. There are many online portals to fulfill our shopping needs which are convenient and safer. So try to switch to online shopping for your requirements.
Don’t use goods or packets directly after bringing home: Rinse the perishable things thoroughly in freshwater, dip them in lukewarm water or mix baking soda in dipping water for a while, wash them again and store them in fridge after drying. You can also leave the packets in sunshine in your balcony if the ingredient inside allows so.
Don’t receive home deliveries directly: Ask the delivery boy to leave the packet outside or put a basket or bucket to drop the packet in, sanitize them before you hold them or bring inside.
Disinfect your home regularly: Make this a habit to disinfect the handles and knobs of doors and frequently touched surfaces to maintain hygiene.
