Make sure these 5 Indian Superfoods are on your plate in 2-0-1-8
Your newsfeed might be full of ‘superfoods’ like acai berry, chia seeds and what-not, from around the world, each one promising a fitter body and a happier life if you consume them. But it’s actually better to think global but eat local. India is blessed with nutrition-dense, healthy foods, so make sure you’ve got them on your plate in 2-0-1-8.
1) Buckwheat aka Kuttu: Vegetarians, rejoice! Here’s your alternative to egg white – containing 8 amino acids with magnesium and potassium. No wheat, only buckwheat! (for you, gluten-intolerants). Buy it here: https://sattvicfoods.in/
2) Lotus Seeds aka Makhana: Rockstar of snackfood. Dry-roasted, it makes a nice, low-cal, crave-buster. Can be added to curries and desserts for the added oomph. We get ours from here: http://healthyliving.natureloc.com/
3) Indian Gooseberry aka Amla: School days are memories of amla bits eaten with a mix of salt and red chili powder. It was the Vit. C in it that boosted our immune systems and now that they are older (slightly, hehehe) it helps us in our weightloss and anti-aging efforts. What’s not to like!

4) Drumstick Tree aka Moringa: Gifting flowers takes on a whole new meaning with morings flowers. A rich source of antioxidants, proteins and calcium, it can be eaten fried, roasted, curried or ‘raita’-ed. Yes, even as a tea. Buy it here: https://vrindavanfarm.com/
