Sattu - sustainability and superfoods

Teej, a festival celebrated during shravan, is rooted in the concept of sustainability. Its the time of monsoon when a lot of communities dont eat green leafy veggies like palak, etc., and also fish or meat.
We still needed to get our folic acid, amino acids and minerals though and therefore the invention of sattu. A delicious, intelligent mix of chana dal, gehu and rice flour (depending on the region you come from), it's the stuff that nutrition love stories are made of. #Plantbaseddiets as the USA likes to call it, sattu provides the body with minerals like calcium, vitamins like folic acid and essential amino acids like lysine.
And this is how sattu can help you - - reduces menstrual cramps and clots
- reduces dark circles under the eyes - reduces pigmentation and hair loss

Diversity is an inbuilt system in our society and culture and it's time we own it with pride. Here's to teej, sattu and all the beautiful women out there.

Real food comes with no labels, real relationships with no restrictions and real people with no pretense.

Top 3 foods to prevent hair loss this monsoon -
1. Methi dana - add it to some warm coconut oil, let it cool, then massage your scalp and leave overnight. Can also be added to kadhi and had with khichdi for dinner. Alternately, use it in tadka for veggies like pumpkin or to flavour your raita. The methi dana is especially useful if its a hormonal issue related hair loss (PCOD, etc) as it helps improve insulin response.

B) Aliv seeds (garden cress, halim)- soak them and have them with milk in the night. Or roll these iron rich seeds into ladoos with coconut and ghee for even better results. They also protect hair loss that comes with chemo treatment.

C) Nutmeg - add a small pinch to milk (along with Aliv) and have it as a nightcap. The Vit B6, folic acid and Magnesium help prevent hair loss and destress.

Other ingredients that are useful -
Ghee - for its essential fats
haldi - for its immuno-boosting properties
dahi - for the minerals and probiotic bacteria
