Proper dieting and food supplements are essential when it comes to people’s overall well being. In fact, if your body were a machine, the vitamins you take would make sure it’s a well-oiled one. You can take your vitamins either from natural sources or by using food supplementation products. Since knowing what’s good for you is the first step to leading a healthy and carefree life, this infographic will show you which are the most important vitamins, what’s the minimum daily intake, and where you can find the best nutrients in nature.

The Baked dahi vada Lentil Dumplings in yoghurt & tamarind
Underneath a beautiful blanket of yoghurt, chutney, coriander (cilantro) leaves and pomegranate seeds, lie little sponge dumplings made of two types of lentils, baked, then soaked in water and squeezed, making them moist and ready to absorb all that goodness from the pool of creamy yoghurt poured over them. Traditionally, these dumplings are fried, but Pratibha auntie, my sister’s mother-in-law, from whom I get a lot of my healthy Indian inspiration, taught me this seemingly simple (albeit with a few steps!) but a genius recipe. These will last for a few days, so make a large plate or two and leave in the fridge to snack on. Gloriously colourful for dinner parties!
