ಸುಖ ಸಂಸಾರ.

ಒಬ್ಬ ಕೀರುತಿಗೆ ಒಬ್ಬಳಾರತಿಗೆ
ತುತ್ತು ಮೂರೂ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ।ಆರೋಗ್ಯ ಭಾಗ್ಯವು ಜತೆಗೆ
ಇದೇ ಅಲ್ಲವೇ ಸುಖದ ಸುಪ್ಪತ್ತಿಗೆ ?
ಎಣ್ಣೆಯಾಗಿ ಸತಿ ಬತ್ತಿಯಾದರೆ ಪತಿ ,
ಬೆಳಗೀತು ಬಾಳ ಹಣತೆ ।ದುಃಖ ದುಮ್ಮಾನಗಳಿದ್ದರೇನಂತೆ ?
ಬತ್ತದಿರಲೆಂದೂ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯೊರತೆ।
ಬೇಡ ಸಂತೆ ಗದ್ದಲ, ಚಿಂತೆ, ಗೊಂದಲ
ಇರೋಣ ಇನ್ನಿರುವಷ್ಟು ಕಾಲ ನಿರಾಳ
ಅರಸೋಣ ಅಗೆದು ಇನ್ನಷ್ಟು ಆಳ
ದೊರಕೀತು ಜೀವನದ ಜೀವಾಳ .
ಯಾಕೆ ಸುಮ್ಮನೆ ಎಣಿಸುವೆ ವಯಸು ?
ತಾರುಣ್ಯಕ್ಕೇ ಮಣೆ ಹಾಕಿದಲ್ಲಿ ಮನಸು
ನುಚ್ಚು ನೂರು ಕಣೇ ವೃದ್ಧಾಪ್ಯದ ಕನಸು
ಸರಸದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊಂದಿ ಕೊಂಡರೇ ಬಾಳು ಸೊಗಸು.
ಕವಿ —–ಶ್ರೀ ಕೃಷ್ಣಯ್ಯ ಅನಂತಪುರ.

Balance Your Diet.

Eating healthy is about  getting a good balance of the

essential nutrients through your daily menu plan.

The six nutrients are-water, minerals, vitamins,

carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

Water is lost from the body as perspiration,

urine,saliva and other enzymes.This has to be

replaced daily as 2-3 litres of plain water.

If this is not supplied, you will be fatigued,

the brain will not function well and your

mouth and body odour will be unpleasant.

Minerals and vitamins are the oil in the

machinery of our body. Ensure that you

consume a whole variety of food,never

miss a meal.Any body skipping breakfast,

or lunch to lose weight or only having

fruit for breakfast, salad at lunch and

a glass of milk for dinner, will usually

have an iron deficiency or anaemia in

such cases. Consuming two fresh fruits

at 11am and 6pm,plus adding fresh salad

to both lunch and dinner is one way to

guarantee a vitamin and mineral supply.

Another major problem is calcium deficiency

which is responsible for most dental and

bone problem. All of us from birth to death

require at least 2-3 glasses of milk daily.

The protein and calcium that milk provides

cannot be got from any other source on a

daily basis. So milk as milk/coffee/tea/curd/

buttermilk must be consumed daily.

Carbohydrates are the energisers of the body.

Whole cereals are  more nutritious as they provide

more vitamins, minerals and fibre.Also at least

half or 1 cup cooked vegetables must be eaten daily

by all ages.

Protein is the building block of the body and basis

for all cell formation. Children need it as they are

making new cells all the time to grow.Adults need it

for tissue repair and maintenance. Milk/curd, dals/

pulses egg or non-veg must be there in every meal.

2-3 glasses milk/curd daily plus half or one cup dal/

pulse must be eaten twice daily at lunch and dinner.

Fats, 3-4 teaspoon oil is essential for all ages daily

and will come in the seasoning of food. Saturated fats

in cream, ghee, butter cheese coconut, dalda etc must

be highly  controlled.

Eat consciously and carefully, drink plenty of water

and walk 30 minutes daily to be healthy, wealthy and fit.
