BOOSTING UP HEALTH AND FITNESS REGIME IN AN ORGANIC WAY: AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH DURING COVID 19 PAND

The health and fitness regime in the period of COVID 19 pandemic is a concern for all age groups. We all need to be fit and healthy with a proper nutritious diet plan and regular free hand exercises. Organic diet and health drinks are recommended for a healthier life. I am an environmental scientist and presently associated with Techno India University, West Bengal as a Head and Professor of Oceanography department. Preparation of organic food products, health drinks and preparation of herbal sanitizers are some of the researches we are at present carrying on with our scholars and research scientists.

Health drinks from wheat grass, preparation of snacks like samosa and kachori from mangrove associate plant species (like Suaeda maritima and Salicornia sp.) are some of the cutting-edge researches extended from our department by the research scientists. Both wheat grass and the mangrove associate species have considerable nutritional values and are rich in protein.

We have also prepared hand sanitizer from Aloe vera and neem extracts in an organic way.

My fitness regime envisages drinking health drinks which are organic along with organic dietary intakes. I would also like to recommend doing free hand exercises after meals for reducing bloating of abdomen. Jogging early in the morning for getting fresh air and to increase the muscle power is very essential part of fitness. An evening stroll in an open area is essential just before dinner to gear up the digestive system and get a good sleep at night.

Drinking of 6-7 glasses of water per day is very good for digestion and metabolic activities. Few drops of lemon juice in luke warm water after rising from bed often helps in reducing excessive body fats. Green tea without sugar just before breakfast is good for slimming out. Breakfast must be completed with fresh fruits, a glass of milk, bread and an egg. Lunch can be done with one cup rice, 2 chappatis, boiled mixed vegetables and chicken or fish curry. Snacks items with junk foods must be avoided for indigestion. Dry fruits and green sprouted grams/chana is recommended in the evening diet. Overall rich, spicy, oily food items along with desserts with loads of sugar content must be avoided. At night for my family I usually prepare soup/broths of either chicken or vegetables along with sandwiches.

The diet plan and food regime which I recommend for my family health and fitness may vary from others as diabetic patients and patients with other chronic disease or ailments can have different diets as prescribed by the doctor. For my kid of 4.5 years I usually make her drink 2 glasses of milk per day along with two fruits. Also I give her soups, sandwiches, pizzas, cakes but all homemade. So let’s all be fit.

The Mangroves  are gems of bioresources so “Lets Go ORGANIC” and keep our selves fit, healthy and fine.
