Why fasting and how does it contribute to a Sustainable lifestyle?
Fasting is an important subset of a Sustainable lifestyle. It is one of those practices which when inculcated early in life (as early as 30s) can help us build a healthy body and mind which enables living more peacefully.
Fasting is not only about not eating! It is about looking within and developing patience with ourself. Fasting helps us develop self control , self discipline which is critical in every aspects of life.
Every 15 days It gives us an opportunity to benchmark our self control and self disciplinary habits. Once we are able to fast, it transforms our thinking, our outlook towards our eating habits. It transforms us as a person. Every fortnight we can get better at fasting by challenging ourself and disciplining ourself .
Join us in this beautiful journey of fasting and transformation as we send you reminders every fortnight as well as share fasting recipes. Invite your friend to join this journey which can be a greatest gift you can give them in the upcoming new year

Slow down is the next best health tip!
In a fast paced life where we are running, rushing and doing everything fast, we have almost forgotten to pause, breath, stay composed while doing our day today things!
Even I go through this tight schedule. However, there are few pockets which I consciously create for myself which helps in pausing. Taking a minute pause every two hours just to breath helps a lot. I know I have been away from this page for longest of time! However I can tell you I have been away for the right reason putting together lot of good things to bring to our community.

DAIRY IN YOUR DIET
Ghee. Milk, cheese, butter, eggs , paneer! How many of us use these products on a regular basis? It’s an integral part of many homes especially with growing up children.
All of these products are important for growing up children as they provide essential nutrients proteins, good fat , essential fatty acids , probiotics etc! However, there are few factors which play an important role in determining if they will *WORK FOR YOU* or *WORK AGAINST YOU*
What are those factors?
1. Source* - source plays an integral role as these are short life products which have to be prepared with lot of care, thought and Love! Going local for these products is recommended any day and will ensure you are consuming it fresh.
2. Moderation & rotation* - Moderation is the key for any eating and it applies to diary as well.! We have to give everything to our growing up children but in moderation & in rotation.
3. Method of preparation * - How you consume these products also plays a major role in how it can add value to you or impact you.
For example, as per Ayurveda, curd is not supposed to be had as is but is best consumed with jaggery or dal! Best is to turn it into butter milk. ‘Haldi wala dhoodh’ is recommended from ancient times! Sure ancestors had the wisdom to understand why milk alone is not good! We at Rootz recommend boil milk with whole turmeric.
Butter* is always good to be cooked than consumed as it is.
Paneer* - in moderation!
Our local farmers spend a lot of time ensuring they pay attention to little details in making this precious product and We at Rootz are grateful to Join hands with them to spread the goodness further on!
