A range of pre-packed foods prepared by Dr Ajit (BAMS)
These days, all of us are living hectic and busy
lives, juggling our commitments between work, leisure and family. With so many
demands on our time, none of us can afford to get sick so we constantly search
for various ways to keep ourselves and our families fit and healthy. While we
all approach this challenge in different way, something we all agree on is the
need to make healthy choices in the foods we eat.
Whenever the question of healthy food come up,
everyone thinks about specific amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fats in
their diet. Some will consider eating only organic foods while others might
choose to eat only raw salads as a healthy alternative. However, in spite of
all these efforts, people still suffer from various digestive problems such as
constipation, indigestion, hyper-acidity and IBS which, if not treated, can
lead to more serious health problems.
In Ayurveda, the ancient health science of India, the
focus of a healthy diet is not just considering what we eat but also looking at
how the food is metabolised in one’s digestive system and whether the food
selected by an individual is compatible with them or not.
these principles in mind I have developed a range of pre-packed meals under the
“Prana Foods” label. Prana means “life
force” and everything in nature is imbued with this Prana, including the food
we eat. These meals are quick to
prepare, easy to digest and nourish both the body and mind. They include:
is a traditional recipe used in Ayurveda as a simple but regular de-tox and supporting those suffering from digestive
problems such as IBS, Chron’s or colitis. It

Porridge: Besan (or Kala Channa) is
a variant of the chickpea but is dark brown in colour and smaller in size. It
is high in protein but has a low glycaemic index so is a good protein option
for people with Diabetes or those who want to burn fat. It makes a nourishing
porridge, particularly for those looking for a gluten free option for
breakfast. Best during Winter.
Porridge: Semolina has been known
for centuries as a nourishing food for everyone but especially for those with
digestive issues. In Ayurveda it is also recognised as the first food for
babies. Its key strength is its ability to make us feel full quickly and for
longer, preventing over eating and snacking between meals. An ideal family
breakfast that no one can resist which will leave everyone feeling nourished and
Besan Pancakes: Besan is made from a legume known as Black Gram (or
kala channa). This legume is rich in iron and is well known for its action to
assist in fat metabolism, as well as strengthening muscles and bones which is
why it has been used for centuries to support diabetic patients. Besan Pancakes
are the best food for those who have a gluten allergy or looking for a protein
rich meal either for breakfast or lunch option.
