The recent pandemic has affected every single household and brought forth a bright spotlight on health and wellbeing. The past year or so has been challenging in all aspects – be it food and immunity. I have a typical family setup that includes my aged in-laws, my preteen daughter, and my husband. So, I have to really look after everyone’s eating habits.
Add fibre to your diet now!
While we all adjusted our lifestyle to include more exercise and stress-relieving measures, our diet also needed a change.
“Add more fibre in your meals,” our doctors advised. Dietary fibre – found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes is best known to make our digestive system healthy.
Benefits of Dietary Fibre for Digestive Health
Dietary fibre (also known as roughage) present in food helps in increasing the weight and size of your stool, thus making it easier to pass and cleansing the colon. Keeping our Digestive system healthy is important for better absorption of nutrients and an improved digestion.
Moreover, high-fibre foods tend to be more filling than low-fiber foods, so you are likely to eat less and stay satisfied longer.
Include whole grains in your food
Aashirvaad Atta with Multigrains gives you the wholesome goodness of six different grains, wheat, soya, channa, oat, maize, and psyllium husk. These ingredients infuse proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fibre into your diet. So you and your family can stay active, healthy, and energetic every day.
I now substitute whole wheat with Aashirvaad Atta with Multigrains and roll out fibrous and wholesome rotis, parathas at breakfast and lunch. I include fibre even in my homemade snacks like cookies, cakes, and savory crackers. My family has a sweet tooth and enjoys varieties of laddoos. Imagine my delight when they all devoured delicious Saathumaavu laddoos made with Aashirvaad Atta with Multigrains. It had the goodness of grains, the energy of nuts, and the love of a mother. You cannot go wrong with it, could you?
It’s advisable to increase the intake of fibre in your diet gradually over a few weeks. This step allows the natural bacteria in your digestive system to adjust to the change. Fibre works best when it absorbs water, making your stool soft and bulky. Hence drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated. You can now even keep a tab on your digestive health and know more about it by checking your digestive quotient score on Happy Tummy Website.
It sure is a small but vital step for us to improve our health in these times of pandemics. The other thing that you could do to know more about your digestive health: A happy tummy indicates sound health and longevity!
A Happy Tummy means a Happy you!
