We are currently experiencing a global situation where it is very essential to take care of our immune system. In addition to increased pollution, stress levels are also increasing. These everyday problems have received an additional burden of never before seen flu and viruses. Natural immunity boosters are a ‘must-include’ in our diets more than ever now. No matter what, I am always drawn back to my roots - Eat 1 teaspoon of ghee every day in the morning.
Food items like Desi Cow ghee, jaggery or honey create a huge confusion in parents these days due to a big difference in our age old traditional food habits and modern-day food habits for babies. While pure organic grass fed gir cow ghee is said to be extremely beneficial for consumption, the question of whether a baby can consume it still prevails. What was considered essential for babies some years ago, is now often said to be harmful. The advent of modern baby food has created doubts about our desi food practices for babies. One such item of confusion is Ghee. While the entire world is speaking about the harmful effects of inclusion of fats in infants, Indian traditional food habits for babies indicate the need for inclusion of ghee in every baby’s diet.
Ever noticed that our grandmother has better skin at 85 than we have at 25? We just cannot get that soft skin despite using multiple cosmetics and getting regular facials done. We could say that this is because of change in our lifestyle, pollution and increase in stress levels. But we fail to notice that our eating habits and beauty regimes have also changed. Ask your grandmother a remedy for dry scalp. She will say apply warm ghee on your scalp. Tell her that you are having acidity. She will say have a glass of cold milk. Never will your grandmother suggest any medicine or pill. Even for all those skin and hair issues, our grandmother has one solution. One. What is that? Desi Cow Ghee!
