Honey! Let's make our lives Sweeter .

After the empathetic winters hiding our layer/s of flab under the beautiful Pashmina shawls and Vardhman cardigans, its now the rude summers shamelessly demanding us to adore ourselves in those midriff-baring  two pieces, in diaphanous sheer pastels, looking every inch the summer Diva and the Jungle Goddess decked up in floral prints complete with a flower headgear which we (okay some of us ) are not!

Our fitness regime is going on fine but the Indian nature of celebrating the Kodak moments (forced mostly) make sure that we are always  in close company of Gunjiyas, dahi-bhalle, jalebi-samose-gulabjamun  and what not .... A thing as mundane as getting our child selected for an essay on 'Mother Cow' qualifies as an occasion for Bengali rosogolle !
I vividly remember an incident when on a sudden power failure, the nursery kid of a businessmen family ejaculated "Oh! the power is gaa...wn" 
 The proud GrandDad immediately send for garma-garm Imartis and Bhagat ji ka Milkcake for entire  neighbourhood basking in the glory of having an English speaking grandson ! I ate (obviously! ) with Rolling eyes .

So here comes the rescuer - our tried,tested and trusted  brand Dabur with its Honey Diet to help us prevent accumulating all the calories we intake with sugar coated edibles.
To have Honey a part of our daily diet is a healthy habit for life time. Honey is beneficial than sugar as it contains natural vitamins, minerals,anti-oxidants , a lower Glycemic Index , less calories and is sweeter than sugar.Besides its aids in weight management, in digestion, purifying skin and is a natural soother for sore throats and coughs and colds.

There are many honey face-packs and ubtans for soft and radiant skin.
The medicinal value of honey is indisputable . Its a favorite for Dadi Ma ke Nuskhe  which means it is used in a variety of home remedies like a honey-ginger paste helps in combating cough , a honey-ginger-black pepper paste helps in controlling the cold and a honey-almond-white pepper paste increases eye-sight and makes all types of cough simple chole-goyche ! (Its gone !)

 In today's time of weight and figure conscious people, honey is an excellent alternative for sugar as it facilitates weight management. Its a safe option in comparison to those new fads of crash diet plans  which never work or if work then only temporary as once the diet changes, the weight cruelly returns settling itself with a ferocious aplomb at areas which were spared before. At such occasions it follows Murphy's law of  "If a thing can go wrong, it will go wrong " 

But we can prevent this by avoiding crash diets and opting for a balanced diet with honey as an alternative as crash diets make us internally weak,malnourished, irritable even depressive.When you eat very less portions you are prone for outburst of frustration specially on seeing others having a hearty meal ! After all we live,work , toil to have a good meal at the end of the day.

So, let's add a healthy choice, naturally sweet taste and golden sheen to our lives and switch to the Honey Diet  with Dabur Honey.Combined with a balanced healthy life-style it works wonders in making our lives happier and sweeter :)

  5. Dear Kokila, You are absolutely right with everything you say the only problem is I just don’t like honey. I’ve tried to cultivate a fondness for it, but I just can’t. I need to eat less sugar, cakes and fatty things – but it’s hard as they are the things I like best.
    Thank you for the kind message left on my blog.
    Have a lovely day Barbara x

  9. Honey -- I love it. Have it regularly both personally and give it to the kids. It is an important ingredient for the ayurvedic medicines too. You are absolutely right, Kokila, Indians love their sugar-dripping sweets. :)
