NutriParadise Foods aims to give their customers a whole new experience in healthy eating and nutritional value of food. They believe in the saying, “A healthy outside, starts from the inside.” We received two of their flagship products for our review. Here is the review by our health and fitness blogger, a professional fitness trainer, Niranjan Ganesh.
We think the product name conveys its intention with no inhibition. Nutriparadise Propotion is a health drink specially designed to cater to the nutritional requirements of hospitalized patients, this drink is a deviant from all the traditional ones out there in the market. Not just because it is free from preservatives and cholesterol, the ingredients have been chosen carefully and blended in the right proportion to ensure proper nutritional balance.
With respect to the packaging, it is an easy to tear 10 grams sachet, though all the allergen information is being provided at the back of the sachet, we were concerned about the absence of manufacturing date and batch number though the expiry date was available.
As per the nutritional facts provided at back of the sachet for every 10g serving the nutritional split is 6.4 grams of carbs and only 1.3 grams of protein which is tad low, anything greater than 2.0 grams would be ideal but still the fact remains that the 6.4 grams of carbs is not from sugar. Overall 10 grams of proportion for 23 rupees is indeed worth a buy, but our suggestion is it can still be made ideal if the price is at 20 rupees with 2.0 grams of protein for every serving of 10 grams.
Nutriparadise GI-55 khichidi:
A diabetic friendly product might be worth a try because of its low glycemic index, but if you are a chronic diabetic patient, it is better to seek your doctor’s advice and consult a nutritionist who can help you out with respect to altering your diet chart. But if you are just looking out for some low GI alternatives, this can be worth a try, but please do consult a nutritionist before making this an integral part of your diet.

Themed restaurants improvise eating experience and breaks the monotony of the dining environment. Kaidi Kitchen (Jail Samayalarai), a multicuisine vegetarian restaurant is focused on giving you an experience of being inside a jail. There are cells and the service team is all dressed up in uniforms and the décor suits the theme. We visited the restaurant to experience the new big menu introduced by the restaurant. Primarily, the food and variety were excellent. We had a full course meal beginning with the Mongolian rice soup and ending it with a baked rasogolla and sizzling brownie icecream.

Now that you’ve made fitness a habit the next big question is going to be what kind of diet should I follow. Which brings us to the fundamental question.
Why do we eat…?
We eat to survive. Now, such a simple thing has just gone over the roof with modern day diet fads pushing us to the brink and making us believe that whatever we’ve been eating so far is wrong and if not catered to something is going to go wrong. Brace yourself, nothing is going to go wrong.
Before starting any new method of dieting, we all miss out on figuring out what is so alarmingly wrong about our current eating habits which must be addressed to, there is no point in trying to write an answer without knowing what the question is. Now lets just have a look at the three most common dieting dialogues that keeps circulating and let us see what can be done about it.
Ok…! Now before you scroll down any further let me hit the nail straight on its head. The very reason that you’ve opened this article is that just a fortnight into the New Year and you are already apprehensive about whether you’re going to get caught in a rut and do the same old act of giving up on your fitness goals and then wait again for another 300 days to pass by. Else if you are someone who has been hitting the gym regularly you may find this helpful with respect to redefining your goals and progressively break your own limits.
Now for most you, who are desperate about getting fit, unfortunately, you might tend to fail in your attempt towards getting fit and being healthier for no fault of yours, by falling into a vicious cycle where you have failed expectations leading to loss of hope thereby clinging back onto your old habits and then social pressure might push you to your limits where in you reluctantly force yourself to get started again and then the same cycle repeats again and again until the next new year.

It is rainy season, there is no winter in Chennai but, the mosquito season has started in all its glory. Tamilnadu has been the target of mosquito related diseases for long, and this time, we are hearing more about Dengue and loss of life owing to it. Awareness, authentic information and action at the right time is the key to preventing Dengue. Diseases have become a part of our life and it is prudence and early detection that will help us in safeguarding ourselves.
Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease caused by four different virus types, DENV 1-4, and spread by the Aedes mosquito. Aedes mosquito is active in day time and breeds in fresh water. Many of us have the misunderstanding that mosquitoes bite only in the night and it is one of the main reason for not taking the necessary precautions during the day time. If you notice the deaths reported, most of them are children. Children tend to stay out and play in open areas during day time and hence are more susceptible to getting bitten by Aedes mosquitoes. That does not mean Aedes mosquitoes do not bite us indoors. The important fact here is one mosquito bite of Aedes is enough to cause Dengue.
Today in the era of nuclear families and the need to have a double income to sustain, it is common to see working couples struggling to manage life specifically in cooking food at home. Coming from a professional household, we understand the difficulties of managing time and health in life where competition is high, performance holds the key, travel consumes a major chunk of time and working hours have gone beyond 8 hours. Though our lifestyle has undergone changes, certain elements have gained prominence and demands attention than it was a few decades back. One such issue is lifestyle diseases and the need for balanced nutrition.
Weddings mark a significant milestone in our life. Be it our own marriage or wedding of our sibling or son or daughter, a wedding has never been associated only with the bride and groom, in Indian parlance, it is a marriage of families. The need to make it special is predominant in the families and they look at it as an opportunity to meet, greet and celebrate the occasion with family members and friends. Changing lifestyle has brought in innovation and creativity and couples look towards making a difference by making the wedding unique in every aspect. Such weddings are not a common occurrence and parents look for guidance to get started.
Basics of any dream wedding can be broadly classified to address outfits, jewelry, makeup and hair, venue, décor, photography, accessories, cakes, mehendi designs, return gifts, wedding packing, unique ideas and invitations. There’s so much thought process that goes into each category and for the ones who is getting to celebrate a grand wedding the very first time, it can be so daunting. This is when online platform such as WedMeGood come to our help. It is an eye-opener going through the site and we are thankful for providing a platform to plan and execute such a grand event in an organized manner.
Celebrations have found a new meaning in our lives. Social life is at its active best and connecting and communicating with friends and relatives has become easy. It is a sea change in the behavioral patterns from yesteryears when connectivity was an issue. Looking at things today, it makes us feel that life was much more serious and less fun those days. Today children are much more youthful and more magnanimous in celebrating life. It is never too late to get into the bandwagon. It is mostly a surprise visit to the friend’s home or at a common place or a restaurant to celebrate birthdays or weddings or anniversaries. Whatever be the plan of celebration, our basic item is a huge cake we so carefully select based on the occasion. Cake shops today has reinvented themselves and we now have a great variety of Birthday cakes, wedding cakes and even photo cakes in Chennai.
Bangalore, a quaint town has emerged as a leading IT hub inviting national and multinational firms and professionals from all over India.
