Food is meant to be enjoyed not just eaten. Medication and a feeling of being unwell are not conducive to a good appetite, but by using ones imagination the same food can be made interesting and eating enjoyable.

    Do not eat boiled food: there is a difference between eating low salt and non- spicy food and boiled food.

  • Use freshly ground ginger , garlic, onion in your cooking
  • Spices like zeera/cumin seed, ajwain, hing/asafoetida are known for their digestive powers
  • Use cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, curry leaves, for their aromas and flavors
  • Use tomato for cooking, it adds to the texture of food and has antioxidant properties
  • Blanche your vegetables to leach out the potassium but do not boil them before cooking 

Make some snacks at home for munching:

  • Unsalted potato chips can be sun dried and cooked whenever hunger strikes
  • Unsalted homemade namkeens
  • Homemade Mathis without baking powder or baking soda are a good substitute for biscuits

To avoid over loading on salt:

  • Avoid the salt shaker on the table, avoid chat masala
  • Avoid pappads, pickles
  • Use homemade unsalted butter, avoid processed cheese
  • Use fresh meat, vegetables, fruits instead of canned variety

Be innovative in your menu: to keep your food interesting change the menu keeping in mind the protein and meal break up

Exercise: Be sure to check with your doctor before any exercise programme. A 30 min brisk walk will benefit

  • By increasing energy levels
  • By improving muscle strength and physical functioning
  • By improving blood pressure control
  • By better control of body weight.
