Health Tips : Women must include these things in their food



There is not only a difference in body texture between women and men but there is a lot of difference in their physical needs as well. Many hormonal changes occur in a woman’s body from time to time.

1. Calcium – Most women suffer from bone pain due to weakness. As age increases, the problem increases, so calcium is very important for strong bones. Women should include calcium in their diet and for this, take milk, cheese, curd, buttermilk etc.

2. Iron – Iron deficiency can cause anemia. Iron provides oxygen to the cells and if it is not there, you feel tired. For iron, you should include green vegetables like chicken, spinach, beans, etc. in your food.

3. Vitamin D – In the absence of vitamin D in the body, the calcium of your body goes waste. Vitamin D helps in calcium absorption in the body. For vitamin D, you should include fish and orange juice in your diet.

4. Folic acid – Pregnant women are very much in need of folic acid. Due to its deficiency, the neural tube is damaged, which affects the brain. It is most commonly found in green leafy vegetables, juices, beans and cashews.

5. Protein – Protein is needed for strong bones and muscles. Protein helps to eliminate germs and also control metabolism. It is most commonly found in chicken and red meat, fish, cashews and almonds. A woman needs about 45 grams of protein every day.

6. Fiber – Fiber not only controls blood sugar and cholesterol, but is also very important for digestion. Due to this, many stomach diseases do not occur. To get plenty of fiber, include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, millet, cashew nuts and almonds in the diet.

7. Vitamin C – Vitamin C should be taken in plenty for good skin. Drink orange juice at least three times a week, eat red chili, cauliflower, all citrus fruits.

8. Omega – Omega-3 fatty acids are helpful in reducing the risk of heart disease. Be sure to include this in your diet. For this, in addition to fish, nut, flax seeds can also be consumed.


The Covid effect: India sees highest cancellation of wedding receptions



With 23 per cent of couples going ahead only with the wedding ceremonies amid COVID-19, marriage reception cancellations in India are higher compared to other countries, according to a survey of to-be-weds in 15 countries.

However, wedding ceremony cancellations in India will remain low with 76 per cent of couples going ahead with the chosen dates, the report by wedding technology company The Knot Worldwide revealed on Monday.

But most couples will reduce the size of their guest lists (68 per cent) and hire fewer vendors (60 per cent) to ensure that COVID-19 norms are followed.

Abiding by local rules and regulations, a vast majority of to-be-weds (80 per cent) will encourage social distancing — between people and tables, said the survey.

About 90 per cent of the couples in India will be inviting only immediate family and close friends.

A quarter would want their guests to take a COVID-19 test ahead of the event as a precautionary measure, the results showed.

“We are glad to see that couples in India are staying positive and are keen to celebrate their special day, despite the pandemic, by making necessary arrangements and precautions,” Ankur Sarawagi, India Country Head, The Knot Worldwide, said in a statement.

At the ceremony, 75 per cent of Indian couples will conduct temperature checks for attendees, said the survey.

Guests will be provided with hand sanitisers, face masks, and members of the staff and vendors such as photographers and makeup artists will be required to wear masks or PPE kits.

The traditional concept of an Indian wedding, one that spans through days, has also changed with 27 per cent of the couples opting for several small events on one day with limited people rather than several large one-day events.

Only 40 per cent of couples in India anticipate that their budget will be 25 per cent or more lesser than what they had originally planned, according to the “Global COVID-19 Weddings Report.”

The findings are based on data among 9,767 couples who originally had weddings planned between October 2020 and February 2021.

The survey was fielded in September 2020 to users who have provided their email address to the company.
