Healthy Eating

Picture healthy, happy, fat cows munching and grazing away on thick, green grass on a quaint farm under the bright sun. Imagine farmers in cute denim overalls squeezing the cow’s udders and churning creamy milk for their customers to guzzle on. Then take this image and throw it in the bin along with any hopes of Santa Claus being real. This is because ALL the packaged milk available at your local store has been extracted from cows that have probably spent as much time eating grass as you have.   As shocking as this fact may be, it has been corroborated by research conducted by Newcastle University in the UK, where it was shown that normal store-bought milk is loaded with artificial chemicals, preservatives (in order to enhance shelf life), colors and dyes (in order to give it that perfect white color),

If you’re like us and simply can’t resist that yellow ladoo, peaking out from amongst the gulaab jamans and barfis, but keep fretting about the extra calories and cholesterol – then fret no more! Take that extra bite (or two, we won’t tell) because it is a scientifically proven fact that desi ghee and mustard oil are far better for consumption than other traditional oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil etc.   As much as we love our coconut oil, it is crucial to understand the importance of making the switch to traditional ghee (and by traditional, we aren’t referring to the one commercially available in markets) and mustard oil. Most of the ghee and mustard oil being sold in markets these days is heated milk fat and hydrogenated vegetable oil. What this means, for you and I, is that it’s

Summers in Pakistan are not just the season for high electricity bills, lazy halwa-puri laden breakfasts and long nights spend catching up on the latest dramas. They are also a season that marks the herald of an endless parade of colorful and delicious summer fruits. These bright, sweet bundles are jam-packed with more vitamins and minerals than you can count on your fingertips! So, before you get bored reading this, thinking of it as just another article echoing the lectures your mama gave you about eating fruits and ditching that ladoo, think again. Instead of droning on and on (yes, we get bored too) about an endless list of chemicals and nutrients that these fruits contain, and how they will jazz up your bodily functions in no time, we have decided to pen an article that breaks down the benefits

Looking into organic produce and mindful eating habits for a healthy lifestyle means you need all the information you can get on the nutrient value of the foods you eat. As Organic Jiyo aims to accompany you on this journey, I will share some useful material in a way that would be most beneficial for you. Let’s first look at THE vitamin; Vitamin C. Known to be a nutrition and health powerhouse, vitamin C is responsible for boosting the immune system, preventing unpleasant symptoms like weakness, fatigue, joint and muscle aches, bleeding gums as well as anemia. Looking and feeling fresh are all expected results of a healthy lifestyle achieved from conscious eating habits. Vitamin C is largely responsible for this result. Vitamin C can be obtained from both fruits and vegetables. It is best to locate where the two food groups

  The summer is in full swing and most of you could have used some tips earlier on, I believe it is never too late to take up some healthy habits. In my search for easy and doable health practices, I came across this excellent formula for keeping the body hydrated up to its optimum level. At an average, the human body is 60% water. So it is no doubt a decrease in this percentage makes the body prone to different health risks. These include lethargy, clumsiness, dizziness, confusion as well as an increase in the heart rate, blood pressure and more serious issues like blackouts and heat stroke. Metabolism is very closely related to water intake and those looking to maintain or lose weight should be very mindful of keeping the body hydrated. Dehydration drastically causes a drop in the metabolic rate.
