Right from the beginning of civilization, dieters and ‘good health’ flag bearers have refrained from promoting rice. Many trainers, nutritionists have also discouraged the inclusion of rice in a healthy diet. However, at a recent event, celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar spoke about three most important rules for a good health.
During the JFW Women’s Summit 2015, Rujuta took her stand on the importance of rice in the diet. Many present were surprised at her advice and 2 years later, the celebrity nutritionist emphasizes on the same. As Indians, we love our rice, dal and ghee; then why should we stay away from them?
Here’s what Rujuta advises:
1. Food – Dal rice ghee for dinner gives you a complete amino acid profile, a restful sleep and a regulated insulin response (good for diabetics). It also ensures more cultivation of pulses – easy protein for the poor and nitrogen fixing in the soil (less need of fertilizers.) So you are doing yourself a favour and your bit towards the environment.
