Complimentary Elements Health Nutrition Healthy Eating Healthy Cooking

Some great personality truely once said that “A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, similarly A man cannot live without love”.Our spouse and ancestors used to repeat a very old phrase “Health is Wealth” which young generation tends to put off very easily.

A very skilled person in penning down thoughts even on the most intricate topics.A writer really requires time , dedication and inspiration.

Now you might have a doubt which is roaming in your head why I mentioned Health, Nutrition ,Healthy Eating and Healthy Cooking as complimentary elements?

I would like to clear this numb confusion which is restricting you to think outside the box with the help of very simple and basic example. Human Body is made up of 5 elements:

1. Air

2. Water




The above mentioned 5 elements are essential and plays a vital role in the establishment of human soul which works like machine.If any of the above element is missing it disrupts the entire process , mechanism and function.

similarly on the other hand if we take health, nutrition ,healthy eating and cooking they are complimentary to each other as well and should go hand in hand to maintain the flow of energy and to create synergy if the strength is lost.

For the recreation of synergy Food remains the only major element for the power production in the body.

Healthy Eating Habits and Nutritious Diet

Parents play a major role in determining and inculcating healthy eating habits in kids , teenagers.Though teens consider less interference in their way of making decisions but it is a tender age and a child get influenced by those stuffs that can have a drastic impact on their health as well as on their life too.Consumption of alcohol & smoking cigar is a common rage in youngters nowadays but dragging them to the right path is an initiative.

I would like to begin on a very fresh note that ‘Health’ and ‘Nutrition’ are not something that you are hearing right now and would be very much familiar with both these terms.Different people have different opinions and their own point of view which might create a slight variation in the meaning of both these terms.For example a person let’s say A would define health is solely dependent upon what you eat on your daily basis and nutrition is the physical process of intake of food(Power house) which is responsible for the production of energy in human body for performing certain actions and for smooth and effective functioning.

Health – It is a state of condition in a person is free from every disease be it acute disease (short term disease like mild cold , cough,hay fever) and chronic disease (long term disease like HIV , AIDS , Cancer, Heart failure).

Ample amount of production of antibodies and antigens to fight against disease, virus, bacteria and germs (foes and not friendly bacteria).

Nutrition- The process of intake of proper amount of well balanced and nutritious diet rich in all nutrients. There are two types of nutrients:

1. Macro Nutrients – Also known as major nutrients and is required by body in large amounts.For example – Fats , Proteins, Carbohydrates

2. Micro Nutrients – Also known as minor nutrients and is required by body in less amount in comparison to macro nutrients. For example – Vitamins and Minerals.

5 Major nutrients that are essential for proper functioning and mechanism are as follows:






*Carbohydrates , fats and proteins are the major energy producing tools or Power house of human cell body for proper functioning and mechanism.

*While on the other hand vitamins and minerals are as important as the above three mentioned nutrients but cannot be replaced by the major or macro nutrients.

*In order to maintain a good flow of energy in our body all 5 major nutrients are essential to sustain the life for long period of time.

Point to remember – Roughage and Fiber are also an important part of well nutritional diet and is important for stool softener.It includes raw fruits and veggies (Roughage) Jowar, bajra , millets , Ragi and lentils.

Research Studies :

Water is important for removal and excretion of waste products.It also regulated the body temperature and essential for all the chemical reactions taking place in our body.

UNICEF says that water is not included in macro nutrients but USDA (United States Dietary Association) includes it as a part of macro nutrients.Macro nutrients are consumed in large amount .Water must be taken in large quantity.Therefore it can be considered a part of macro nutrients.

A research study indicates that individuals who consumed Vitamin E supplement had a higher risk of prostate cancer than individuals who did not consume vitamin E .similarly calcium supplement too has been found to put individuals at a greater risk of heart attacks.
