It takes more than an apple a day to keep the doctor away! A wholesome diet plays an important part in strengthening your immune system, and the tasty recipes in this section offer a perfect package of nutrients to achieve this. They are loaded with antioxidants, especially vitamin E and C, and other such nutrients that help fight free radicals. Feast on these delightful recipes, and keep diseases at bay.

Our body is made up of billions of cells and as we get older, these cells will age. Our cells function all day, all week and all year. Example our skin slowly starts to age. Ageing happens on a metabolic level resulting in our body creating fewer mitochondria resulting in lesser energy available to use. An easy way to counteract the process of ageing is to exercise daily as that will help increase the count of mitochondria in the body. Exercise forces the body to produce more energy resulting in more mitochondria produced in each cell. Thats why we see endurance athletes, long distance runners, swimmers look younger and have more energy.

Our body consistently produces harmful substances called free radicals which damage the cells in our body. We can counter that by eating Antioxidant rich foods. This is important because Antioxidants are the substances that help in removing the potentially harmful substances called “free radicals” from our body.

Antioxidants have many benefits like flushing out harmful toxins from your system, boost metabolism, aids in weight loss, cleans the liver and improves kidney function, improves skin complexion and prevents wrinkles, gives you healthy nails and hair, reduces fatigue, improves your mood and so on.

You need assortment of antioxidants from different resources to fight all these free radicals. If you just took Vitamin E then you will land up fighting those free radicals. Instead ensure you eat foods of different colours on your plate everyday then you can truly fight oxidation by fighting all these different free radicals. A simple way is to have a salad with Lettuce, Spinach, Bell Peppers, Carrot, Feta Cheese or Paneer with an olive oil dressing. Try Antioxidant, Protein Rich Healthy Lunch Salad or Masoor, Beets, Zucchini , Peppers Lunch Salad You are getting different coloured foods which will take care of most of your problems.

The key to remember is also to minimise the impact of inflammation to your body.

So what is the best Antioxidant? Only one food will not fight oxidation in the body and you need a mix. Inflammation is a common term we hear often, when somebody has body pain or fever. We take it quite casually and just pop in some pills to sort out the inflammation, without bothering about its cause. Inflammation is basically the body’s reaction to some kind of stress, and the good thing is that it indicates that the body is working to overcome the problem. When you get a cold, cough or running nose your body responds with inflammation in the form of a fever that helps you heal. The inflammation does its job, gets rid of the virus and disappears. However, if this inflammation persists, it can indicate or even lead to severe problems.

The main culprit for body inflammation is eating the wrong kind of food. Processed foods and sugar are amongst the biggest causes of inflammation. Can you believe that inflammation begins within 30 minutes of having sugar and could last up to 4 hours! In order to avoid inflammation, have foods that do not spike your insulin levels. Go for foods with more fibre, less or no sugar, and complex carbohydrates that take more time to digest. More natural the foods you eat, the cleaner and safer they are. More of processing means a greater risk. So, avoid using thickening agents like corn flour in your soup. Opt for stir-frying instead of deep-frying. Stay away from store-bought salad dressing and make a simple olive oil dressing at home.
