In today’s highly busy schedules, it is essential that we take care of ourselves. What better way to ensure that than to eat more healthy?
With increasing work hours and load, and a generally ‘occupied’ lifestyle of work, social obligations and family it is often seen that individuals fail to keep up with a healthy, nutritious diet on a daily basis. The ease with which fast-food is available makes one more inclined to take the easy way out for ‘just one time’ instead of cooking something or investing time in our meals.
Here are 5 ways of eating healthier during a busy schedule.
The first rule towards eating right is, and always will be, drinking lots of water and keeping yourself hydrated. Always carry a water bottle with yourself, or make sure that you get up and go to that water cooler at regular intervals. This small action can do wonders for your body.
Include some raw foods in your diet. Raw foods are extremely nutritious and filling. However, make sure that they are washed properly because of the increasing use of chemicals in most farming. You can use vegetable purifiers which make raw vegetables and fruits free of contaminants like pesticides using ozone technology.
It is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day. Don’t just have a cup of coffee and feel like you’re done. Hence, a filling and nutritious breakfast can make your day.
Always try to have a simply cooked meal rather than something from a tin can into the microwave.
If you have problems cooking every day, cook in bulk and try storing pre-cooked meals for the coming week on weekends which you can relish without hassle in the following days. It will ensure that you eat healthy without having to shy away from cooking your foods too!
These are just some of the umpteen ways one can keep up with their health in a hectic schedule, do comment if you have any more suggestions!

I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
