“Eat your vegetables” – Another reason why moms are always right

She is an epitome of perfection, speaking volumes about sincerity, honesty and integrity, this God gifted figure considers her family and near ones to be her utmost priority as she burns the midnight oil just to care for them.

She is a WOMAN.

She is a MOTHER.

We might as teenagers look upon our mothers as a force that is binding us from enjoying our lives and doubting their each and every action and even lack the perspective to see the truth in the things they told us. Children start seeing their parents as hypocritical. However, the truth lies in the fact that mothers are always right no matter what the situation is. The primary reason could be that they are far more experienced, have seen lives far more than her children and knows what’s better.

Some of the common phrases used by each and every mother are: ‘be nice to your siblings’, ‘learn to work on your own’, ‘pick your battles carefully’, ‘always stand up’, ‘never let me down’ and the list is so long.

And the most common and sometimes very irritating, humorous too is – ‘eat your vegetables’.

We should always try and listen to her for a simple reason that she will never think bad for us. She knows everything about you even if you don’t tell her.

And as far as this phrase is concerned, mothers always care for her child’s health and never wishes to take a small risk. We as children have been hearing this since the day we saw this beautiful world, since childhood and now after growing up, we do realise the importance and truth about this that vegetables should occupy the most of the part of our plates since eating vegetables reduces the risk of cancer and many other diseases. These are very good sources of vitamins and minerals. It ensures that people are likely to get fewer heart diseases, less diabetes and blood pressure problems. Also eating vegetables play a great role in weight management. Their fibre content makes us get attracted towards them. It’s like vegetables are a part of our everyday life, without them, we can’t function and so are our mothers.

Mothers for centuries have been proving their worth and their sayings as right.

Be it in the case of Lord Rama’s mother Kaushalya or any other significant mother.

However, children are stubborn when it comes to eating healthy food and especially vegetables. So mothers who can’t see her children go to bed without food try and come up with different ideas to make it more interesting to eat vegetables. She tries to add fun while eating by making food colourful or arranging it in a different manner on the plates. Well, vegetables are something which we as human beings with the intellectual power can’t resist and not even can think of avoiding it. However, today’s generation fail to see this and then regret themselves for not having listened to their mothers once, who are always right.

So, life doesn’t come with guides or manuals, it comes up with mothers.

Respect her, value her, follow and listen her and love her and never make her go down..!

Five protein alternatives for vegans that are just as nutritious

Say Hello to Plants!

Human beings since day one have been taking up proteins in some or the other form to keep themselves growing, just for a simple reason that it’s very important for our brain function and workouts. Rather they are called THE BUILDING BLOCKS of our lives.

Oddly enough people in our country have had a stereotype in their minds that we get the majority of our proteins from animals only.

Regardless of different opinions, even most of the environmental, health and humanitarian problems are because of the increasing consumption of meat and animal products. Also, they are high in cholesterol and saturated fats which are not so good for humans body.

Thus by putting all the pieces of this jigsaw puzzle together, we need to look for some alternatives, especially for the vegans.

The sad truth is that people are still stuck up on the idea of their dinner plate being filled with meat; of all kinds and then a bit of vegetable and might be some rice. So according to me, an easy way is to leave the thought of how our plates look like and focus more on healthy vegetarian dishes.

Well, there are a plenty of sources of plant-based protein meals which can be eaten. So here we are with some of the best options ones can go for –

  1. Tofu: As far as the name is concerned it may appear a boring one, however, its main attraction is that it can be flavored in any way you want it to and helps in adding rich, chewy and creamy texture to your food and is highly rich in proteins.
  2. Black Beans: These are one of the richest sources of proteins and antioxidants and the most healthiest beans of all. One of an easy way to enjoy them is to make black bean burritos, but they can also be used in salads or made a vegetable off.
  3. Oatmeal: Oatmeal contain magnesium, calcium and vitamin B apart from having three times proteins more than brown rice along with more fiber and less starch. It is one of the best protein based breakfast to take.
  4. Vegetables: Especially spinach, black-eyed peas, broccoli, and asparagus. All these names may appear boring, but they contain a high amount of proteins and are even rich in many other nutrients. All of these can either be used as vegetables for cooking a dish or even in salads.
  5. Soya bean and soya products: There are so many easy ways to eat soya beans. It works as an amazing alternative food for the vegetarians as it can be easily substituted in place of daily meals of fish, meat, cheese, etc. protien-2
