To improve your snacking habits, it’s important to know that this doesn’t happen overnight. By making small and sincere changes, you can get on track and revamp your eating-on-the go habit. Here’s a brief guide to help you do so. 

Don’t delay or skip meals: The first step to develop sincere eating habits is to have meals regularly and maintaining a fixed time for them. A full-fledged, balanced meal, gives very little scope for hunger pangs. No matter how tasty the snacks are, they are after all snacks. And they cannot and should not be replaced by meals. 

However, on the days of fasting when you crave something flavourful, a crunchy snack comes handy! Bansiram Namkeen offers a range of snacks to splurge on the days of fast. Made from the traditional recipes that truly cater to the strict diet followed on the fasting days, Bansiram snacks have a punch in terms of flavour and taste.

Our Farali Chiwda (tikha and mitha), Rajwadi farali chiwda, Banana chips and Sabudana are so good that you wouldn’t want to restrict it to just the fasting days. 

Get it served right: Can’t control how much you are eating? Then you should avoid eating straight from the packet, instead use a plate or bowl. This will control the portion size that you are eating. Having said so, it’s smart to transfer the snacks in a plate but it’s smarter to use smaller sizes of plates and bowls to eat less. You can even try creating your own special recipes with Bansiram namkeens by adding different ingredients and masalas. This will make your snacking time even more delectable. 

Eat a number of times per day: Instead of having too many snacks at one go, it’s better to have small portions every 2-3 hours to regulate your blood sugar level and metabolism. Eating 5-6 small meals is one of the best ways to develop a more disciplined snacking habit. 

Know your cravings: Snacks make a great companion when you stressed, frustrated, lonely or emotional. But eating mindlessly rarely helps! While snacking is great while watching TV or reading a book, it is important to keep a check as to how much you are eating. Remember, crunchy snacks help a lotwhen you feel those doldrumsand are great while watching TV or reading a book. 

In short, a good snacking habit doesn’t just involve how much you eat; the quality of food is also important. Eating quality snacks is good for your overall well-being. Namkeens from Bansiram are 100% authentic and best in quality and taste. With Bansiram by your side, you’re surely on your way to develop a good snacking habit, because you’ve started by choosing right!

27-Oct-2018

Dry fruits come under the category of healthy snacking. StarNuts range of almonds, cashews and pistachios are available in different salted, masala and pepper flavours. Even a small serving of these nuts make up your daily dose of nutrients. But wait till you wake up to these fun-filled facts about your favoured nuts.

Almonds

Popularly tagged as the waistline-friendly snack, almonds are way too healthy as far as the heart health goes. Recent studies reflect that almonds eaten mid-morning can help moderate blood sugar throughout the day. In fact, these nuts are loaded with so many other health benefits that they make a place in the list of top healthiest food items of all times.

But did you know that almonds actually belong to the rose family and are often referred to as the ‘queen of the rose family’.

The fuzzy hull around the almond nut seems almost peach-like. And that’s because the nut’s other family members are the peaches. When immature, the green almonds can be preserved and pickled. In some countries around the world, this is considered as a delicacy and cherished on special occasions.

Cashews

If you are among the health conscious herd, you must be well acquainted with several versatile properties of cashews. More so, you might fancy the goodness of the seed. Yes, you heard it right! Grown out of apples, cashews are technically seeds and not nuts. When cashews are harvested, so is the apple-like fruit that goes with it, which is then utilized in jams and juices.

During the 1560s, Portuguese sailors were the first to introduce the Cashew seeds in Goa. From there, it spread throughout Southeast Asia and eventually Africa.

When raw, cashews are surrounded by a double shell that containstoxic resins. This resin is used in several industrial products such as brake liners and paints.

Raw cashews are green in colour. Before the seeds are roasted, cashews have a beautiful green shade to them.

Pistachios

Oh well, what we call a pistachio here is known as the smiling nut in Iran and the happy nut in China. At some places, these are also famous as green almonds.
One of the oldest flowering nut trees, the pistachio history dates back to centuries, this is why it is often labeled as a prehistoric nut.

Research suggests that pistachios are the only in-shell nutsthat potentially reduce calorie intake in comparison to other dry fruits in general. Studies reveal that people consuming pistachios consume fewer calories per day than those who indulge in shelled nuts. This effect is popularly known as ‘The Pistachio Principle.’

Interesting isn’t it?So is our exclusive range of dry fruits! Include StarNutsflavoured range of almonds, cashews and pistachios as part of your daily snacking schedule. Or gift it to people in your corporate loop and to your loved ones. We are sure it will leave them asking for more!
