Alia said don’t measure food and eat. As per Rujuta, food should not be reduced to groups such as carbs, proteins and fats. You should eat food in moderation. “Everyone’s talking about gluten-free pizza, brown bread and red rice, about reducing their carb intake, and I’m eating white bread and butter at 4am. Rujuta showed me how local food eaten in moderation can be healthy,” Alia said.
Surprising? Rujuta says sugar is a natural coolant and one should add sugar in lemonade than honey. Nimbu paani is healthy for hair and not having sugar can give you cramps.
“I make my paneer and dahi from that organic milk too and consume it fresh. It works as a natural fat burner and gives me a good skin tone. It’s my job to look fabulous,” said Alia. She also eats dal khichdi and curd rice with a spoonful of ghee.
Alia says a vegetarian diet can also have lots of proteins. Even curd rice has proteins. “Have plenty of vegetables and grains and that fulfil the protein requirement,” said Rujuta.
Nope, salt is not bad food. Less salt can lead to hypertension, blood pressure issues, etc. Don’t skip the salt. Also, locally single pressed oils are the best such as mustard oil, coconut oil, peanut oil.
