The Indian Way of Eating

The Indian Way of Eating

Indians these days are obsessed with nutrition. We believed it to be a good thing until we realised that this fixation is only for the trending superfoods. The market emergence of superfoods has put the good old Indian food in a neglected state. Kale, Quinoa, Oats and now Moringa; the obsession is growing and turning people paranoid.

Some say carbs are bad, some go on a kept diet and some believe that the GM diet is the best. Since when have we, Indians, been so suspicious about food. Have you ever seen your grandma skipping rice or calling for a cup of Matcha after every meal; and you know she can still walk more than we can. Nutrition is not this extreme, in fact, it is simple. Our ancestors have been eating full meals with all the so-called carbs, fats and proteins and they have lived well for thousand years without being infected with obsession. They ate seasonal and local foods without quite worrying about adding olive oil to their meals.

Indian cuisine is a perfect mix of taste and nutrition. Then what is the point of putting unpalatable food on your plate when you have an option of such sumptuous food. Well, we here love the Amritsari food. They say that there are some famous restaurants in Amritsar that are a paradise for foodies. And, when you know the Indian food can keep you healthy why waste money on non-delicious superfoods.

Our ancestors experimented for a thousand years to give us what we conveniently neglect today- the Indian cuisine. There is nothing wrong in eating some nice butter chicken; in fact, we are going to tell you some best non-veg restaurants in Amritsar to satiate your taste buds. Anything that is wrong today is our lifestyle. In order to enjoy the Indian food and gain maximum nutritional benefits here are a few things you can try:

  1. Exercise more.

The best way to stay fit is by burning calories. The traditional Indian food uses fresh ingredients which have high nutritional value. So, in order to build some nice muscles, you should eat the good nice Indian chicken rather going for canned Tuna.

Bemisaal is one of the best non-veg restaurants in Amritsar that serves some amazing chicken. Get your fix of chicken here and then go for a nice run in the morning and you are sorted.

  1. Ghee is a Superfood.

If you are one of those who are obsessed with superfoods, do not move away from Ghee. Ghee actually reduces cholesterol by increasing the amount of lipids towards metabolism. And, what better than the Punjabi ghee on your rotis. Some of the best veg restaurants in Amritsar serve fresh ghee with chapatis. Go eat some chapatis but take care of the amount.

  1. Go for Indian spices.

Indian spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic, green chillies have medicinal properties. The new curcumin which is being sold as an antidote to fatigue and obesity is actually haldi. So, do not skip the healthy Indian spices like these, add them in your food and enjoy their healing benefits. And, to find some best restaurants in Amritsar you know who to ask.

  1. Add more vegetables to your plate.

The best way to gain more nutrition from food is by increasing your intake of vegetables. You can do this by simply turning your plate around. Make veggies your main and starch your sides. This will help you eat more nutrition and less total calories. I hope you want less calories and better taste.

And, if you live alone and can’t cook vegetables on your own we will help you find some best restaurants in Amritsar. Because staying hungry is not cool.

  1. Eat a balanced diet.

And, to eat that balanced diet you need not run to that health store. Indian meals contain the right amount of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and fibres. It is better to ask your mom to give you a nice full plate of good food rather eating from those packets that claim to contain nutrients but are actually just preservatives. You can also have a thali in some of the best veg restaurants in Amritsar to have a balanced meal.

There is so much more to Indian food that actually meets the eye. So, next time someone tells you the health benefits of Kale and Quinoa, start talking about rice, chicken and ghee. Also, take that person to some famous food places in Amritsar and he would never go back to those packaged nutrients again.

Eat Indian, stay healthy.


P.S : Bemisaal is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Amritsar to get some amazing chicken.
