  2. Hi Mam…

    Would like to see blogs exclusively on proteins…myths, facts associated with them!

    I still hear few telling me that having more Whey is not good for health…Not sure if this is true…for that matter, is whey the best form of protein, as advertised all around?

  5. Hi mam….

    My fiancee 22 years old 5.3 inch height but her weight is 42kg…also she eats well..but she can’t gain weight…I suspect she has overactive thyroid problem…Bcz of she had delayed puberty…and getting often irritation…so I can see symptoms of overactive thyroid issue on her…I read few articles related overactive thyroid…their solution for this….Soy beans. so now my question is soy bean is good for overactive thyroid problem or any other solution for this ?

    Thanks in advance


    • Hi Krishnan,

      Sorry for the late reply. I would not advocate soya as a solution for her hyperthyroid problem (the goitrogens in soy are inactivated once it is cooked; so the belief that soy curbs thyroid activity is not true). But it can be included in her diet just like any other food in moderate amounts.

      Proper prescription medicines, a well-balanced diet and regular exercise would be a wiser path to adopt.

  7. Hello Ma’m 🙂

    So happy to see your blog.. I find it very informative .. and the recipes are simple and yet seem so delicious. Can’t wait to try out some of them :).. I specially liked the recipes for “Chutney with a twist” and “Kosambari” (which my mom has made for us since childhood especially during RamNavami, and like you have very rightly mentioned, we offer it as Prasadham) which are perfect for the summer 🙂
