Of all the things we ought to follow from celebrity, we never just follow their diet plan or the exercise regime. We like to dress like them, style like them, shop like them but when it comes to fulfil the healthy routine its absurdly tedious. That’s because, whatever we read or see is only the half part of it. With the current trend of health consciousness and strict work outs, achieving the enjoyable and hermit able life isn’t that tough.
As much the salads might look bland and plain, ironically, they can taste equally good if you choose to. The secret lies in the dressings or as we Indians call it the chatni. What is actually a salad? It’s either a raita for North Indians, Koshimbir for Maharashtrians and South Indians call it Palya. But ultimately it acts as a cold refreshing nutrition anyways. The cold refreshments offered by Indians, or the salads that taste delicious rawness and the dried chatnis are a way for changing a healthy food lifestyle. Most of the industrial caterers have opted for compulsorily providing some sort of salad in their daily diet. Of the health consciousness, the salads do have a native touch of the cook who prepares it.
And now you must be feeling that I am drifting off from what this article is totally about. This article is not just about health consciousness, or nutrition or bland salads. Its about the food culture that prevails in whole of India and the hint of native touch it adds to the dish that familiarises different regions. For eg: When you travel south, use of coconut and jaggery is utmost in everything. So how will salads will be an exception to it. All the salads have a staple dressing of coconut oil or coconut milk in it. Pr0obably that’s the reason why the caterers from south have an infamous attitude for ruining the continental salads. But as they mark in continentals, they literally ace when it comes to any dressing, any chatni of the native herbs.
Coconut is highly rich in iron and essential vitamins. Therefore, having salads can not only benefit you weight management routine but is a perfect intake for good hair and good skin. So, achieving a celebrity look with green salads is a win-win for everything. Until recently people were unaware about yet another tasteful Smoothie. Although, not so much of an indian origin, however, smoothies have gained momentum in healthy food lists. So, if you are not a salad person, you definitely can try different health drinks or smoothies. Every single day breakfast or muesli or pancakes can be overwhelming because of the calorie consciousness. But, smoothie or health drinks are a rescue and Holy Grail for weight conscious people. While I was travelling with the locals, I saw that almost everyday consumption of coconut water has benefitted them with shining skin and healthy body. So adding the fresh ripe and slimy coconut into your smoothies will also be of significant importance to your health.
