Adapting to the NEW YEAR
GlobalSpa|March 2021
THIS NEW YEAR SHOULD BE ALL ABOUT SUSTAINING POSITIVE LIFESTYLE CHANGES THAT ARE HEALTHY, BALANCED, AND EASY TO ADAPT TO.
DR. ANJALI HOODA

2020 has been a tough year for all of us, apart from so many downsides of 2020, lifestyle has changed for most people. Work from home has become a part of our lives, homeschooling is also putting pressure on parenting, sedentary behaviors, no motivation to remain fit, no zeal of dressing up - all of this means that most of us have let go of our bodies, and some wrong habits have set in.

While adapting to new changes we must keep some things in mind which are easy to adapt to:

Eat only when hungry: Easy thing is to follow your body signals, of course not letting any greed set in. If you eat regimented meals it is good but if you can not follow that pattern then it is better to listen to your body. Do not quash your appetite by drinking caffeine or excess water. Eat food that has nutritional value.

Drink lots of water and non-caffeinated beverages: Drinking too much coffee will lead to water retention and high cortisol. Avoid too many teas, although drinking tea with milk once a day is alright if you are not lactose intolerant but drinking many cups will pile on the weight as tea also has caffeine. Hydrate with water even in winter.

IN SEASON Chickpeas (GARBANZO BEANS)

Chickpeas appear in early recordings in Turkey well over 5000 years ago. India produces the most chickpeas worldwide but they are grown in more than 50 countries. An excellent source of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, B vitamins, and some minerals, they are a nutritious staple of many diets. The name chickpea comes from the Latin word cancer, referring to the plant family of legumes, Fabaceae. It is also known by its popular Spanish-derived name, the garbanzo bean. Kidney beans, black beans, lima beans, and peanuts are other familiar foods found in this legume family.
