greenvegMost of us avoid eating green and leafy vegetables, and for some it, would be the last choice to have. In spite of our grandmothers continuous explanations about the benefits of eating green and leafy vegetables, as a child, we often hated eating green veggies, and would finish eating only if were offered a good tempting dessert. Similarly, almost every visit at the pediatrician during childhood would end up in a conversation discussing the amount of greens we would consume during a week- without any significant improvement in dietary habits. Very few people eat their greens and actually enjoy eating them; some are new starters and still love eating them; as they are aware of all the good benefits that green leafy vegetables contain.

Why greens are needed?

Water wonders in winter- Its  a common belief that we must drink lots of water during summer to avoid dehydration. Usually we forget  that drinking water in winter is as important as in summer, written by Monisha

drinking-water-for-energyFrom the very beginning of our lives, we need water to survive. Human body is estimated to be made up of  60 to 70 percent water. Irrespective of changes in season our body needs water to maintain the hydration, which is a must to maintain the smooth functioning of all our systems. Several ounces of water is lost daily through breathing, so as to humidify  the air that we breathe in. During winter the outside air is drier and the use of heating systems inside makes the air more dry. In such conditions body tends to lose more water while humidifying the air we breathe in. Using a humidifier during winter may help reduce water loss from our body.

During winter- the temperature drops and sweating is less; that is the reason we have less desire to drink water- not feeling thirsty. However, there is no change in the functioning of our systems; hence we must become more careful during winter about drinking  enough  water and fluids.

Did you know?
For our body to function properly, it should replace 2.4 liters of water, on a daily basis, some through drinking and the rest by eating.
