Cavid-19 has kept most people in the world under house arrest for a long time. During this time of crisis, the human diet has changed dramatically. Most people are relying on processed foods at this time.
Moreover, the food production process is disrupted and the food of their choice is not available in the market. But with a little thought we can choose our food in a healthy way.
So let’s see how we can choose healthy food-
Put lots of fruits and vegetables on your daily food list:
In this situation of lockdown, it is very difficult to get fresh fruits and vegetables. So buy enough fruits and vegetables and store them in the fridge so that you can easily put vegetables and fruits on your daily food list.
Almost all vegetables and fruits contain a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that play an effective role in boosting the body’s immune system. It is very important to increase the immunity to survive from Covid-19.
If you can’t find fresh vegetables and fruits, choose healthy dry or canned foods:
Fresh food is always good but if it is not available, try adding different types of canned vegetables, fruits and fish to the food menu. For example, you can easily get the demand for omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids from canned fish.
Adequate healthy snacks at home:
Instead of a sweet or salty breakfast, include a variety of healthy foods such as nuts, yogurt, dried fruits, boiled eggs and a variety of home-grown fruits on the breakfast menu. Which plays a special role in creating a healthy diet.
Avoid extra processed foods:
Avoid processed foods such as ready-to-eat foods, packaged snacks, soft drinks, etc. Because they contain excess sugar, salt and saturated fats which are the cause of many diseases of the body. Instead of these foods you can eat lemon juice, cucumber or coconut.
Make cooking and eating enjoyable:
Cooking and eating together in the family creates a cordial relationship for each member of the family.
Let’s eat healthy food, stay healthy. We resist Covid-19 ourselves.
