Why Should You Eat Ghee-Rice-Dal Regularly?

Eat Ghee-Rice-Dal Regularly

Tell us what your favourite childhood memory is? Is it something that involves your mother's food? Regardless of where you hail from, your mother has probably made ghee rice and dal for you at some point or the other which is why this humble meal has now become a source of comfort for many people in India.


In this day and age, people believe that eating healthy means laying off the carbohydrates and fats, but that isn't necessarily true. Each nutrient is vital for your diet and your regular ghee, rice and dal meal does provide you with most of them.
Today, we are going to talk about the benefits of eating ghee rice and dal regularly. So, keep reading!


1. A Great Fat Burner

Ghee is a great fat burner


Let's start with the main reason why you avoid ghee rice and dal - you think it'll add to your weight. That isn't true. Desi cow ghee contains a ton of short-chain fatty acids. In addition to performing the work of regular fats, these fatty acids also help your body burn fat, increase the number of healthy bacteria in your gut and improve your overall heart health. So no, not only does desi cow ghee destroy your fat, but it improves your overall health as well.


2. Helps With Indigestion

ghee helps with digestion


In addition to ghee, most recipes will use ingredients like hing and cumin to season their ghee rice and dal. These ingredients trigger various enzymes and digestive juices in your body which aid your digestion. Additionally, because these ingredients are high in fibre, they also prevent intestinal gas.


3. A Great Source Of Protein

ghee is great source of protein


Proteins are incredibly important for your daily life. They act as building blocks for your bones, cartilage, skin, blood and muscles. Moreover, proteins help create important body chemicals like hormones and enzymes which are mandatory for completing basic bodily tasks.
Unfortunately, proteins tend to come from meats such as chicken and fish, which are out of the dietary limits for vegetarians. But the lentils used in the ghee rice and dal dish are full of proteins which makes it an incredibly important dish for both- vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

4. Helps You Maintain Your Diet

ghee helps you maintain diet


Dal is known for being incredibly heavy, which will help you avoid overeating throughout the day. Additionally, the proteins in the dish will help you build muscles and improve your metabolism so that you can burn fat at a faster pace. Honestly, what more do you need out of your diet?


5. Integral Part of Indian Traditions

ghee is a part of our Indian tradition


Rice has remained an integral part of Indian traditions and holds a respected position in Ayurveda. Be it Bhai Dooj, marriage, welcoming a new bride or a newly born baby, rice is the first grain a child is introduced to.


6. Important for Lysine Consumption

ghee is important for lysine consumption


Rice is almost the only grain having Lysine, an essential amino acid (one that cannot be produced by the body and has to be consumed from the food). It is a precursor for HGH (Human Growth Hormone)


7. Safe for Diabetics

Ghee is safe for diabetes


Mixing any food with ghee lowers its glycemic index (GI) and hence ghee with rice is totally safe for diabetics. Rice with pulses/legumes topped with ghee has the complete amino acid profile in a specific ratio. Hence, being a rich source of plant protein and easy to digest makes it an excellent food choice.


Conclusion
And there you have it - four reasons why desi cow ghee rice and dal is a great meal to have for diet conscious people regularly. Not only is this meal incredibly delicious and nostalgic, but it also contains fibre, carbohydrates, short-chain fatty acids and other vitamins that will go a long way in improving your health. Best of all, this diet is filling and doesn't leave you craving any meals. So what are you waiting for? Start prepping your ghee rice and dal now.
