I’m wondering on each and every traditional practice or fact that contained valuable reasons behind.
Going for a buffet or treat or feast ? Just read it and go to enjoy the fullest …
Our ancestors have stressed on the fact that our meals should be started off with something spicy and sweet dishes should be taken towards the end.
But Why ?
- The spicy things activate the digestive juices and acids. It also ensures that the digestion process goes on without any problem and efficiently.
- Sweets or carbohydrates pull down the digestive process. Therefore, sweets were always recommended to be taken as a last item.
For more chemical / medical reasons , just click. (Since I do not understand some acids etc)
So, beginning with a spicy soup and ending with Desserts will make a sweet day.
Yes. You read it right.

What are Millets?
Millets include jowar (great millet), ragi (finger millet), korra (foxtail millet), arke (kodo millet) and sama (little millet).
All these are available in the form of rice (example: foxtail millet rice), rawa (example: jowar and bajra rawa) and flour forms in supermarkets in addition to jowar pastas or ragi string hoppers.
These may look coarse and unappealing for an eye that’s accustomed to mill polished white rice, but once you master the art of cooking these well, the health benefits are for you to enjoy.
Why Millets? <SECRETS of healthy life DISCLOSED>
Traditional Indian Food that grows in all season. These can grow ONLY ORGANIC. No fertilizers help.
Highest Fiber content. Easy to digest.
Very Cheap indeed. A kilogram of any costly millet will cost you less than Rs. 100
Importantly best suitable for diabetic people and easy digestive for kids.
Is that tough to cook or replace our daily food?
Certainly not. Just replace rice with millet rice, even for idly measure. (3 cups idly rice, 1 cup millet grain soaked, as usual 1 cup urad dal) . For Chapatis or rotis, very well multi grain goes. No taste difference too. Even my fuzzy queen eats it without complaining.
Try with Porridge (sweet or salt), Payasam, Halwa, cakes, biscuits, upma, Kichadi etc

Do you like that fresh minty feel of your mouthwash?? Ahh, This is for you..
Mouthwash clearly offers certain benefits — but it’s important to know that not all mouth rinses are the same.
What is the problem with mouthwash?
Store-bought types contain a variety of ingredients ranging from fluoride (Act) to alcohol (Listerine) to chlorhexidine (Peridex).
If the alcohol content of your mouth rinse is too high, it may actually end up irritating the canker sore more than helping it.
Linked with Oral Cancer.
What are the natural alternatives?
- Saltwater rinses: This can be made at home with warm water and salt. Gargle it daily

Hindus have a tradition of paying regards to Sun God early in the morning by their water offering ritual.
It was mainly because looking at Sun rays through water or directly at that time of the day is good for eyes and also by waking up to follow this routine, we become prone to a morning lifestyle and mornings are proven to be the most effective part of the day.
Much more videos available to start practice if you wish.
My Personal Opinion: Making early to rise a habit...
No Soap, No Shampoo, No Chemical – No Toxin
Why did we give up soap?
Just watch this video to know visually better.
Because it is toxic. Even using old fashion soaps means you are rubbing down your body’s largest organ, daily, with poison.
I researched many home made soaps (bit less hazardous chemicals), natural soaps, eco- friendly soaps and I came to the conclusion that all soap is simply a SOAP.
Then What is the alternative?
Looking back what our ancestors did..
we provide you 3 Best natural soap alternatives used by ancient Indians prescribed by Rajiv Dixit, a great Indian social activist.
1. Multani Mitti with Curd
Multani mitti is one ancient secret for beautiful skin of Indians. Still, many people in India use multani mitti as face pack. Now, what all you need to do is mix Multani mitti with curd and make it into paste a night before you use it. The next morning massage your skin with this Multani mitti paste and just wash your skin with warm water. That’s it. This makes your skin glowing and radiant. This helps in making you skin soft too.
2. Besan ( Gram ) flour with milk cream
This is the second best alternative for soaps. Mix Besan (Gram) flour with cream and massage your skin with it and wash away with warm water. Gram flour with malai helps in making your skin radiant and pimple free. Even this is a best soap alternative for those with oily skin.
3. Masoor dal (Red lentil) powder with honey
The first thing is to get some Masoor dal ( in english we call it Red lentil ), and grind it into powder. Then mix some pure honey to it. Then rub this paste on skin as mentioned already and wash away with water. This is the best naturalsoap alternative to exfoliate skin. This even removes dead cell from your skin and gives your face a much fresh and young look. It softens your skin too.
For better results, you can even mix pure almond oil, fresh milk, honey and curd in any of the above 3 powders mentioned. And one more important thing is, don’t expect best results in one or two days. You need to try these at least for a week or two to experience better results.
