There was once a time when our ancestors lived a life where they knew exactly what was good for their body, mind and soul. Without Google, they shared a deep connect with everything around them and had access to information from nature, that we can never imagine getting now. Eating certain kinds of foods were extremely beneficial and this was also accepted without any modern day research, survey or dispute.
Bringing back various traditional and indigenous foods has currently become a huge trend, and rightly so. With our lives getting more and more polluted and filled with sludge of every kind, any effort- big or small at eating right and healthy is a step forward.
People feel that is difficult to acquire a taste for these so called “health” foods but actually it is all in the mind rather than the taste buds. I’m not saying that we all have to eat only millets all the time now, I still need my roti, chawal aur dal daily. Something that can be done is be aware of the healthy choices around us and try. Moreover, isn’t experimenting with new ingredients in the kitchen fun?
Here is where companies like Manna are doing a stellar job. Attempting to instill in people the mindset that healthy food does not mean bad tasting food. Manna is a Chennai based company that has been around since 2001. They have consistently been producing various food products that are aimed to make your life easier, the healthy way. The company has found its niche in the health food industry with successful implementation of more than 60 health food products.
Yes, you can make all your favourite dishes (even sweets) using healthy options like Manna’s Ethnic Millets range and enjoy them.
- They are gluten free and make a great substitute for people with gluten allergies.
- Millets are rich in minerals like copper, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus.
- Rich in fibre, essential fatty acids and anti oxidants,every part of your body from the heart to the nervous system, and the bones etc etc is in good hands.
- The list goes on and about how good these sturdy yet tiny grains are for you.
Don’t take my word for it. Or Google’s. Trust in the ancestral knowledge that somehow got lost along the way that Millets should be one of the staples in your kitchen.
