Mums are amazing because they are constantly juggling a bucket load of responsibilities; be it kids, family or even work, they are always trying to balance their life amidst all these things. I too am a working woman and a proud mommy of 2 little cuties. So, I tend to feel buzzed and exhausted towards the end of the day.
Well, the schedule is so hectic that I hardly get time to focus on my nutritional needs. In the evening, after coming home from a long and hectic day, when the entire family is sitting together for dinner, I sometimes don’t even feel like eating much because I feel drained and tired from all the work I’ve done throughout the day.
However, there’s this one thing I have observed about the working women- they hardly get to focus on their nutritional needs because they neither have the time nor the patience.
At work, most of us, including myself prefer eating food on the go because it is more convenient. Things get worse when I’m at home because I end up craving for fast food! Well, obviously it is delicious, but most importantly, it is unhealthy. All thanks to the rush culture we follow, people look for the convenience of eating rather than focusing on what’s good and healthy for them.
Soon, my health levels began fluctuating, I started feeling excessively exhausted after work and that’s exactly when I decided to visit my doctor for a check-up. My nutritionist said that it is all because of the lack of nourishment in the body. Due to such unhealthy habits, I realized that I had been missing out on the basic nutrients.
Since most of the time I’m under constant stress, be it personal or professional, Moreover, as a matter of fact, stress is bad for health as it is linked to severe health problems like cholesterol, blood pressure and other cardiovascular illnesses. Thus, stress can make anybody feel weak and weary.
In fact, stress is not just going to affect an individual’s physical well-being but their mental well-being too. If you’re a working individual and you’re under stress, it is going to affect your performance since you won’t have the energy to deal with it. Moreover, if you cannot perform better, it will stress you out further.
Then I finally sat myself down and thought about the kind of culture and lifestyle I’ve been following. It later struck me, that I am not eating right! Just to be on time, I had been compromising with my health for a long time. So, I realized the importance of eating healthy and nutritious food as it contains all the nutrients and micronutrients which are essential for the body’s stability and growth.Once I realized that my body is losing its nutrients, I decided to maintain a healthy diet so that I can enjoy the best of both worlds(motherhood and professional).
My doctor said to me, “Why don’t you give multi-grains a shot! They have the ability to improve your digestion which aids to weight loss, diversity of minerals can be consumed at once, builds strong bones, protects the heart, promotes blood circulation and improves your body’s metabolism.”
With these numerous benefits of multi-grains, I decided to switch to Aashirvaad Atta With Multigrains and I made a healthy choice which I will never regret! Since rotis are consumed more often in my house, this is the best way I could come up with a solution for not just mine, but my whole family’s nutritional needs!
Why don’t you too switch to something smarter and better for yourself and your families? Try Aashirvaad Atta With Multigrain as it is loaded with the goodness of core important grains such as oats, channa, psyllium, maize, wheat and soya.
The best way to include these in your diet would be through your food as basic as a chapati! A good blend of these in your atta will ensure that your body gets all the essential nutrients and micronutrients like fibre, proteins, vitamins, potassium, iron and minerals.
Even the food you choose on the go can be healthy! Instead of having the regular maida paratha roll, why don’t you opt for a healthy multi-grain-veggie roll!

Your evenings can become a wee little sinful as you feel like devouring a lot of unhealthy food like cheese, puffs and something tangy. It is always good to have a healthy snack handy so that you don’t indulge in any guilty pleasures. A multigrain masaledaar khakhra sounds like a great idea, isn’t it?
