Opt for almonds to stay healthy, this World Food Day

13-10-2020 Tue 17:39

Every year, World Food Day is observed to promote global awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and the need to ensure healthy diets for all. With this year’s theme focusing on building a sustainable future for all, people across the world will come together to bring to light the need to ensure food safety and nutritious diets for all.

Food is the essence of life and the bedrock of our cultures and communities. During such difficult times, when the world is facing a pandemic, preserving access to safe and nutritious food is essential. We all have a role to play, by making food choices that improve our health. We need to make efforts to stay healthy and to ensure good nutrition. A good way to start is by making informed food choices and consuming healthy snacks like almonds. Almonds provide many nutrients – such as protein, vitamin E, magnesium, riboflavin and zinc – that contribute to a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle.

Emphasizing on the importance of healthy food and snacking habits, leading Bollywood Actress, Soha Ali Khan said, “I have always been very conscious about my food and snacking choices, even more as now I have a young daughter who sees me as her role model. Therefore, I am very particular of the snacks I keep at home. My go to snacking option is almonds as they are a rich source of protein, a nutrient that is not only energy yielding, but also known to contribute to growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Besides that, almonds are easy and quick to flavour and go with just about any Indian masala/spices. So be sure to keep a handful nearby to satiate those hunger pangs without compromising on your health!”
According to Fitness Expert and Celebrity master instructor, Yasmin Karachiwala, “No matter how busy and stressful your life gets, compromising on your health and fitness should never be an option. No matter what the challenge is, be sure to push yourself to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, and instead of feeling low – try to motivate people around you to join you.

Only exercising isn’t enough. Make sure to complement your workout routine by practicing mindful snacking, which will also aid in better weight management. I suggest snacking on almonds as they make for a healthy and tasty snack, and are known to have satiating properties that promote feelings of fullness which will also help in keeping your cravings under control.”

According to Sheela Krishnaswamy, Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, “A lot of people in the world, and especially in India are undernourished and their diets lack essential nutrients. As most of us learn to adapt to this new sense of normal due to Covid-19, it is important to take stock of your family and your eating habits and lifestyle. To lead a healthier and more wholesome lifestyle, start by eating right and including healthy foods such as almonds to your own and your family’s daily diet. Beyond adding a host of nutrients, daily almond consumption may also help in strengthening immunity as they are high in Vitamin E[1].”

Healthy living requires a lot of commitment and patience. This World Food Day, let’s ensure staying healthy by consuming the right foods and exercising regularly!
