AYURVEDIC DETOX DIET THIS NAVRATRA. WHY TO FAST?
Super foods to eat this Navratra:
1.Sweet Potato: Sweet potatoes contain unique proteins, called sporamin’s, which account for more than 80% of the total proteins. They have antioxidant properties and helps in relieving joint pain especially in winters.
2.Buckwheat: Commonly known as Kuttu ka atta, it is rich in flavonoids, particularly a Rutin. Flavonoids are phytonutrients that protect against disease by extending the action of vitamin C and acting as antioxidants. Also maintains blood flow and lowers blood pressure.
3.Sogo: Popularly known as Sabu dana, Ayurveda has used Sabu dana as medicine to cool body. As Pitta is high during this month, which means increase in digestive fire and production of excess bile which leads to acidity, Sabu danaa’s cooling properties helps alleviating the same.
4.Rajgira: Popularly known as Amaranth has vitamin c to help boost immunity, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium and twice the amount of calcium as milk. It has lysine, an essential amino acid which helps in metabolizing fatty acids. It is easy to digest which helps our body during fasting.
5.Samak Chawal: It tastes very similar to rice and helps to satiate one’s rice craving. It is also called Barnyard grass and this rice is actually made from. Samak is high on digestive fiber and is low on calories and carbohydrate.
6.Lotus Seeds: In India we call it Makhanas, are good source of protein and calcium and have anti-aging properties.
