Decoding a healthy diet

first_imgYou seem to have a special interest in culinary skills. How did you get initiated into this field?My passion for cooking started when I was 12 years old. I was like a puppy following my elder sister. She joined a cookery class and I followed her too. I had too much fun cooking back then. I kept up learning from every one around me. And today  my paasion has taken a shape with these two books. How and when did you decide to pen down your ideas into a book? Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Around 15 years ago, I was at a stage when I was learning to make Indian desserts and pickles, and I happened to write it all down. That is when my home cook book started coming up. And rest is history. Your first book ‘Don’t diet, diet cookbook’ and now Unjunked lay a lot of stress on healthy eating. Why?I am a nutritionist and while consulting I realized that there is a need for tasty, healthy, quick to make, easy recipes. It was initially to support my client daily diets. Then slowly the collection of these recipes took form of the book. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix How is Unjunked different from the first book?Unjunked is very different from the first book. First of all it gives weight loss guidelines in a chapter called ‘Seven Day Cyclical Menu for Weight loss’.Secondly it also tells the readers about how to make healthy low calorie options when dining out. Thirdly, we have given a healthy twist to many popular junk food like pav bhaji, vada pav, sev puri, burger etc. Further the book also tells the reader how to balance all the four main meals of the day that is, breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. The recipes do not fall into the usually listed categories such as soups, salad, vegetables, bakes, rotis etc. If I were to ask you your favourite junk food, what would it be. Would you also tell our readers, how can it be converted into something healthy?My favorite junk food is Pav Bhaji, and that is one of the first recipe I unjunked! Reduce potato and butter content, add boiled mashed moong sprouts and more boiled peas, maintain the spices and garlic, and here you have a tasty healthy Pav Bhaji. Instead of having coke as a drink have it with cool miny buttermilk. Here you go a well balanced lunch or dinner menu.  Being a nutritionist first and writer later ( or so I presume), what’s your idea of a daily healthy diet?Daily diet should be consisting of well-balanced breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a small snack in the evening with major nutrients (carbs, protein, fiber and fats). These meals should be well placed with ideally 4 hours apart. With the help of the book Unjunked I have tried to reinforce why these major nutrients are important for healthy functioning of human body and  why there is a need to complete the plate.last_img read more

Train movement disrupted in Bengal as locals protest youths death

first_imgKolkata: Train movement on the busy Howrah-Kharagpur section of South Eastern Railway was disrupted for four hours on Friday as irate locals blocked the tracks at a railway station after a youth was run over by a local train here, an official said. “The locals disrupted the movement of the train for almost four hours at Mecheda station due to which a few local trains and Express trains got stuck,” said Chief Public Relations Officer Sanjay Ghosh.

As news of his death spread, hundreds of locals squatted on the tracks demanding a job for a member of the victim’s family. “As the situation is now under control, trains will start moving but they will run late. There will be changes in the scheduled time of the trains,” Ghosh said. Passengers stuck in the Howrah station suffered due to the delay and lack of announcements. “We are waiting since morning, people are exhausted still we have no information,” a passenger said.last_img read more

Electoral bonds worth over Rs 370 cr sold from main branch confirms

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee’s repeated claims during poll meetings that black money worth crores of rupees had been spent by BJP in Bengal during the general election in Bengal, proved true again after the State Bank of India confirmed that electoral bonds worth more than Rs 370 crore had been sold from SBI’s main branch in Kolkata.Replying to an RTI filed by Vihar Durve, a Pune based social activist, the SBI authorities informed that in May it had sold electoral bonds worth Rs 822 crore between May 6 and May 24, a day after the results of Lok Sabha election were announced. Out of the total amount, bonds worth Rs 370 crore, the highest in the country, was sold from the bank’s main branch. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataOn Tuesday, news portal The Quint had published the report, which Mohammed Salim had uploaded on his Twitter account. The list published by The Quint shows that the highest amount of electoral bonds had been sold in Kolkata, followed by Mumbai where bonds worth Rs 200 crore had been sold during May 6 to May 20. Delhi came third, where bonds worth Rs 112 crore had been sold between May 6 and May 24. The portal further claimed that in January, March, April and May, electoral bonds worth Rs 4,798 crore had been sold. Similarly in March, April, may, July, October and November last year, more such bonds had been sold by SBI taking the total amount to Rs 5,851 crore. This proves that the political parties had earned a major portion of their election expenditure by selling electoral bonds, but there is no way to prove who had purchased the same. SBI authorities said they did not have any clue as to who was paying the money to which political party. The Opposition alleged that out of the total amount of electoral bonds sold, the lion’s share had gone to BJP.last_img read more
