Prunes are sweet and juicy which offers a no. of benifits. These can be eaten as a snack at any time of day or incorporated into your meals. They are easy to store and ready to eat anywhere, anytime.

4. Weight Management
These are high in fiber with less calories. The high fibre in prunes leaves you feeling fuller for longer so you would not feel the need to snack on high calorie treats. They are low in fat too. Hence these are perfect snacks for weight loss.
5. Reduce Plaque Buildup
Plaque build up in the arteries causes atherosclerosis, a narrowing of the arteries, which can result in a shortage of oxygen and blood to the tissues of the body. If left untreated, this can lead to heart failure, stroke, and heartattack. Fortunately, research suggests that dried prunes may help slow the development of atherosclerosis.
Scientists have shown that eating prunes and drinking
prune juice can significantly reduce blood pressure.
6. Good Source of Iron
Anemia occurs when the body doesn’t have sufficient healthy red blood cells, which iron helps to make. Shortness of breath, irritability, and fatigue are all signs of mild anemia. Prune juice is a great source of iron and can help prevent and treat iron deficiency.
7. Aids Normal Body Function
Prunes are a good source of potassium , an electrolyte that assists in a variety of vital bodily functions. This mineral helps with digestion, heart rhythm, nerve impulses, and muscle contractions, as well as blood pressure. Since the body doesn’t naturally produce potassium, consuming prunes or prune juice can help you avoid deficiencies.

carotene can actually make people happier . Beta-carotene

The soluble fibre we just spoke of also helps to lower cholesterol by soaking up excess bile in the intestine and then excreting it. Bile is made from cholesterol in the liver in order to digest fat. When the body excretes bile along with the fibre from prunes and plums, the liver must use cholesterol in the body to make more bile thereby lowering the amount in circulation in the body. Soluble fibre may also inhibit the amount of cholesterol manufactured by the liver in the first place. Prunes are more effective than psyllium fibre at
relieving constipation.

Health Benifits from Broccoli

Broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family whose large flowerhead is eaten as a vegetable.The word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo , which means "the flowering crest of a cabbage ", and is the diminutive form of brocco , meaning "small nail" or "sprout". Broccoli is often boiled or steamed but may be eaten raw.

Broccoli is classified in the Italica cultivar group of the species Brassica oleracea. Broccoli has large flower heads, usually green in color, arranged in a tree-like structure branching out from a thick, edible stalk . The mass of flower heads is surrounded by leaves. Broccoli resembles cauliflower , which is a different cultivar group of the same species. Broccoli has an impressive nutritional profile. It is "high in fiber, very high in vitamin C and has potassium, B6 and vitamin A," raved Victoria Jarzabkowski, a nutritionist with the Fitness Institute of Texas at the University of Texas at Austin. "For a nonstarchy vegetable, it has a good amount of protein."

Top 10 Benifits from Broccoli

Broccoli shares these cancer fighting, immune boosting properties with other cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage.

2. Cholesterol reduction

cholesterol out of your body.

concentrated source of vitamin C, plus the flavonoids necessary for vitamin C to recycle effectively. Also concentrated in broccoli are the carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, other powerful

Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both of which are important for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis.

6. Heart health

The anti-inflammatory properties of sulforaphane, one of the isothiocyanates (ITCs) in broccoli, may be able to prevent (or even reverse) some of the damage to blood vessel linings that can be
caused by inflammation due to chronic blood sugar problems.

7. Diet aid

Broccoli is a good carb and is high in fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar, and curbs overeating.Furthermore, a cup of broccoli has as much protein as a
cup of rice or corn with half the calories.

Glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiin and glucobrassicin are special phytonutrients that support all steps in the body’s detox process, including activation, neutralization and elimination of unwanted contaminants. These three are in the perfect combination in broccoli. Broccoli also contains isothiocyanates (which you read about ininflammation) which help control the detox process at a
genetic level.

1. Salad Greens

Start your supper with a simple salad: it’s low in calories and research out of Penn State shows that eating a first-course salad can cut your overall calorie intake at a meal by up to 12 percent. Plus, a vegetable-packed salad delivers fiber, a must-have when you’re dieting. Fiber helps you stay satisfied longer—and, according to one study, upping your fiber intake may help prevent extra pounds from creeping on and even promote weight loss.

2. Lean Protein

Chicken, fish, tofu or beans—it doesn’t matter which you pick—all are protein-rich. Gram for gram, protein will keep you feeling fuller longer compared to carbohydrates and fat (read: help keep those midnight snack attacks at bay). And don’t forget about low-fat dairy: recent research, published in the Journal of Nutrition, found that the protein in dairy (called whey protein) may help ward off weight gain and help build lean body mass.

3. Whole Grains

You probably already know that for overall health you should be making at least half of your grains whole grains. But for dieters, choosing whole grains—such as brown rice, quinoa and whole-wheat bread—100 percent of the time may give you an extra edge, says a recent study. When researchers put volunteers on a three-month weight-loss program and instructed one group to eat only whole grains for their grain servings and the other group to choose only refined grains (and avoid whole grains entirely), the whole-grain eaters melted significantly more abdominal fat. While the fiber in whole grains may deserve some of the credit, researchers note that whole grains are rich in magnesium, a mineral instrumental in regulating fat metabolism.

4. Dessert

Though this isn’t exactly an ingredient, what dieter doesn’t want to hear that it may be easier to stick to your diet if it includes a little sweet treat? Well, it’s true. One reason may be that removing access to sweet foods stimulates the release of a molecule in your brain called corticotropin-releasing factor , produced when you’re afraid, anxious or stressed. And increased stress levels may lower your motivation to eat more nutritious foods, making it more likely that you’ll binge on junk food.

2. Avoid eating heavily or full stomach. Instead have small meals to speed up the body metabolism of burning fats.

3. Remember to include at least 8-10 glasses of water in your diet. Water will help to wash at toxins and wastes from body and keep it hydrated.

4. Also 30 minutes exercise is required for getting slim and fit body. Cycling, running, swimming, skipping and playing some outdoor sports are some good exercises for making body slim.


Grains, especially whole grains, are an essential part of a healthy diet. All types of grains are good sources of
complex carbohydrates and some key vitamins and minerals. Grains are also naturally low in fat. All of this
makes grains a healthy option. Better yet, they've been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain
cancers and other health problems.

Adding more whole grains to your family's meals is a smart move. Not only do they provide the vitamins, nutrients and minerals needed to keep your family healthy and strong, but whole grains also contain dietary fiber, which may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other health complications.

Grains are divided into two subgroups: whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire kernel — the bran, germ and endosperm. There are following few smart way to add them in your everyday diet:-

1. Cereal

There are many whole grain cereals on the market and they are all good sources of dietary fiber. Whole grain oats are a great choice because they have the proven ability to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) while raising good cholesterol (HDL).

2. Whole Grain Toast

There are many varieties of whole grain breads available. Some are made from multiple sources of whole grains
such as wheat, spelt, barley and oats. Look for food labels that confirm that the product is made with 100% whole grain. Some brands of bread that advertise "whole wheat" on the label are actually a mixture of whole grains and refined white flour.

3. Whole Grain Buns

Substitute plain hot dog or hamburger buns with whole grain varieties. They taste great and can withstand soggy
condiments or Sloppy Joe mixtures better than plain buns.

4. Whole Grain Pasta

Use whole grain pasta the next time you make a pasta salad or lasagna. The whole grain varieties have great texture and hold up better than the plain types that tend to get soggy easier.

5. Whole Grain Brown Rice

Use whole grain brown rice instead of refined white rice in your recipes. Not only will you be adding important dietary
fiber to your diet, you'll also be helping to stabilize your blood sugar levels. Refined grains break down very quickly into sugar which can cause spikes in blood glucose levels. The subsequent fall of blood sugar often results in food cravings.

6. Corn or Whole Wheat Tortillas

Use corn tortillas or whole grain wheat tortillas instead of plain flour tortillas the next time you're serving Mexican food. The use of whole grains or corn makes the dish much healthier.

7. Oatmeal or Whole Wheat Flour

The next time you bake muffins or cookies use oatmeal or whole wheat flour instead of refined white flour. If you don't do your own baking don't despair, nowadays almost every type of snack food comes in a whole grain version.
Consider shopping at specialty shops or health food stores to stock up on your healthy snacks so you won't be tempted to purchase the unhealthy varieties.

8. Popcorn

Popcorn has gotten a bad rap but it can be a healthy whole grain snack when it's air popped, and butter and salt are kept to a bare minimum.

9. Whole Grain Chips

Switching from plain crackers and chips to whole grain varieties might seem like a little thing, but it's the little things that make the difference when you're aiming for a nutritionally balanced diet.

How much whole grains in a day

For adult - Half of food

For Children - 2 or 3 servings everyday


Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the
entire grain seed in their original proportions. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled,
extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the
original grain seed.

This definition means that 100% of the original kernel – all of the bran, germ, and endosperm – must be present to qualify as a whole grain.

Healthy, whole-grain foods are made from
cereal grains that include the whole kernel, and research shows that they can protect you from ticker trouble, diabetes, colon cancer, and possibly asthma and Alzheimer’s disease. There are following few example of whole grains:-




Corn , including whole cornmeal and popcorn


Oats , including oatmeal


Rice , both brown rice and colored rice


Sorghum (also called milo)



Wheat, including varieties such as spelt , emmer, farro ,einkorn, Kamut , durum and forms such as bulgur, cracked wheat and wheatberries

बॉम्बे हाई कोर्ट ने मैगी को दी बड़ी राहत, बैन हटाया

मैगी नूडल्स को बॉम्बे हाईकोर्ट से बड़ी
राहत मिली है। हाईकोर्ट ने मैगी पर से बैन
हटाने का फैसला किया है। लेकिन इसके लिए
कुछ शर्तें रखी गई हैं। मैगी नूडल्स बनाने वाली
कंपनी नेस्ले को पहले लैब में उत्पाद के टेस्ट कराने
होंगे। साथ ही फूड रेगुलेटर अथॉरिटी के साथ मंजूरी
लेनी होगी।

मैगी पर जांच पूरी होने के लिए छह हफ्ते का
वक्त तय किया गया है। एनएबीएल से मंजूरी
प्राप्त लैब में ही टेस्ट कराना होगा।
हाईकोर्ट ने नेस्ले को नूडल्स के सभी प्रकारों
के पांच-पांच नमूने ताजा जांच के लिए पंजाब,
हैदराबाद और जयपुर की तीन लैब में भेजने की
अनुमति दी है। यदि तीनों लैब में सीसे की
मात्रा को स्वीकार्य सीमा से कम पाया
जाता है, तो नेस्ले को मैगी नूडल्स बनाने की
इजाजत मिल जाएगी।
