Spicy Foods : The Benefits and the Drawbacks


Spices add up that flavor which no other seasoning can add! And Indians love spicy food, don’t we? All of us regularly ask the Panipuri wala, ‘Bhaiyya, aur thoda theeka dalo”, and we don’t even need to talk about the Biryani, which is a colossal cluster of all the spices ever available. Now, let’s talk about the benefits and drawbacks of our favorite spicy food.


1. Aids in the Weight loss

Spicy food is so ever helpful when it comes to losing those extra pounds. That’s because spicy foods boost your metabolism, which will ultimately digest your food in a proper way and capsaicin, the element present in chillies, peppers and jalapenos will help in fat burn. So go ahead and eat that pepper curry!

spicy-foods-for-weight-loss2. Prevents Cancer

Again, capsaicin, which is amazing, by the way, is helpful in preventing the risk of cancer! Crazy, isn’t it? So, studies from various universities proved that hot foods are helping with curbing the risk of prostate cancer, and sometimes even stopping the proliferation and growth of cancer!

spicy-food-for-cancer3. Have A healthy heart

Like we discussed earlier, chillies, cayenne peppers, jalapenos, habaneros all have this capsaicin, which helps a lot in increasing the breakdown rate of fats and cholesterol. So this helps in lowering the levels of bad cholesterol which causes most of the heart diseases.

spicy-food-for-heart4. Improved Blood Circulation

Hot foods help in getting the blood pressure under control.  How is it you ask? Well, when you eat spicy food, like the chillies and peppers, your body temperature rises which in turn increases the circulation of blood. Heart aggressively pumps blood, helping both blood circulation and getting blood pressure under control.

chillies-for-better-circulation5. Improves Digestion

Spicy foods boost metabolism. They increase the production of Hydrochloric acid that will ensure the proper digestion of food. They also strengthen the mucus lining of the stomach. This will also increase the circulation of blood. The increased production kills the bacteria, therefore curbing down any bacterial illnesses.

spicy-food-for-digestion6. Mood lifters

Capsaicin, the kickass substance that we had talked about,boost the levels of endorphins and serotonin, both of them are feel good hormones. They are extremely helpful when it comes to stress relieving. Next time you feel a little low, go on and have that big bowl of spicy soup.

7. Helps in breathing

You must think “what?” but chillies, peppers and such hot foods are suggested by doctors to patients that have breathing problems. It helps a lot to the people with Bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, sinusitis and other breathing and respiratory problems. They also help in clogged nasal passages, which is why we should eat them when flu and cold hits us.



Well, you guessed it already. Drawbacks of having spicy food includes the risk of gastrointestinal illness. Although capsaicin is good for your body in various ways, it irritates the stomach lining when consumed in large quantities. It can also cause stomach ulcers, gastritis and other intestinal diseases. People with hemorrhoids are suggested to keep away from the spices. so guys, limit is the key. 

7 Foods You Shouldn’t Eat On Empty Stomach


It’s common knowledge that breakfast is the important meal of the day. And again, it’s common knowledge that mornings are extremely lazy. Almost all of us rush away in the mornings, because we invest our time in that 10 mins of extra sleep, rather than preparing for a good day. Anyway, in that rush,we don’t eat a healthy breakfast. We start with junk first thing due to variable reasons. If you’re one such person, here is the list of what you should not eat on empty stomach!

1. Coffee and Tea

Although it sounds bizarre and unreal because we’ve been drinking coffee or tea first thing on empty stomach, in the morning since years. But that’s harmful on so many levels. Caffeine boost up your system. Agreed . But it’s not needed and damages your digestive system. It can cause a heart burn, by increasing the acid levels in the stomach. It can also make you bloat and cause bowel irritation. Whereas tea can curb your appetite and slow down your metabolism.

coffee-on-empty-stomach2. Carbonated drinks

Carbonated drinks are never good for body. At any time, much less for breakfast. They damage your liver and causes heart diseases. All the carbonated drinks are high in sugar, which mess with your insulin levels very badly. Long story short, just don’t do it.

carbonated-drinks-on-empty-stomach3. Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits are all cool. They are full of vitamin C, which is basically blessing because it does a lot of good to hair and skin. You can load up on citrus fruits, all right, but not on the breakfast table. Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits and limes damage the lining of the stomach and cause a severe case of heartburn. If you want to include fresh fruit in your breakfast, try strawberries, blueberries, apples and watermelons instead.


4. Puff Pastry

No. just don’t. That croissant with nutella on the top of it surely looks delicious but do you know that’s full of yeast? And yeast causes flatulence. Yikes. And it’s not even healthy. Why would you do that to yourself? Go grab your oatmeal.

puff-pastry-on-empty-stomach5. Nutella

Who doesn’t love chocolate in their food? Especially a thick layer of chocolate spread on the toast? But again, it’s harmful to have nutella in mornings. Nutella being hella delicious, we all are tempted to eat it right from the jar. It has high sugar content, which again will mess your system when you have it on empty stomach. After a period of times comes the sugar crash, which is even worse. So when you have cravings for chocolate in the morning, go for chocolate milk but not nutella.

nutella-on-empty-stomach6. Green veggies and tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and tannic acid, which will damage your stomach lining like citrus fruits do! Also, the green veggies are full of amino acids, which may have unwanted effects like heartburn, gastric discomfort because they give tough time for your just-woke-up digestive system.

tomatoes-on-empty-stomach7.  No Spicy foods on Empty Stomach

This one is no-brainer. Spicy foods, specially when they contain hot peppers, chillies or jalapenos. Sure, spicy food is delicious and it has its own quirky taste and health effects too. But on an empty stomach. They will damage stomach lining very badly and are responsible for the gastric ulcers, which are quite painful.


5 Foods That You Should Have As Breakfast


Breakfast is such a hassle. Most of us snooze right through those twenty alarms, and then we rush like crazy, putting things off everywhere. In that hurry, sometimes we even skip breakfast, only to welcome a huge mug of coffee without even a second guess. This habit of skipping breakfast will do us wrong in many, many ways. In the long run, it will affect our health and it makes you gain weight too. So, the first rule is never skip breakfast, and if you have queries about what you should eat on an empty stomach, here is the list!

1. Oatmeal

If you think oatmeal is too boring, try adding a bit of dark chocolate or fresh fruit into it to make it even more yummy . Prepare the oatmeal with milk for that creamy texture and go ahead,add that spoon of honey!

oatmeal-as-breakfast2. Eggs

Eggs are filled with protein. They are helpful in so many ways. If you’re trying to keep off the extra weight, they help a lot to you in it.

You can boil it, make an omelette, or make a french toast! And none of these takes more than a few minutes!

While almonds help you in maintaining the blood sugar and blood pressure levels along with maintaining cholesterol levels low. Walnuts help with health of heart and they are full of Omega 2 fatty acids. They improve bone health too. And coming to Cashew nuts, although they are high in calories, they are full of essential minerals and contains fats that are good for health. So, have a handful every day. But don’t go overboard!

nuts-for-breakfast4. Honey

Yes, honey for a sweet morning. Be it that dressing on your toast or in your coffee, honey is infinite times better than sugar. Honey is rich in Vitamin B and other essential minerals. Honey also has low glycemic index, which is why it doesn’t affect the blood sugar levels like sugar does. Therefore, it is a safe alternative for everything.

Whole grain bread makes a fulfilling breakfast. You can have a toast or two before starting that perfect day. It contains protein, fibre, B vitamins, essential minerals and antioxidants. So if you’re going for a french toast or something, choose the whole grain bread.

dupatta-as-kurti3. Use your Dupatta as a saree

Don’t say ‘whaaat??’ You can do it easily! Like we said earlier, if you have a bomb dupatta, where the patterns, embroidery and the gota pati is perfect for a saree’s pallu, don’t think twice. Just go for it! Oh wait, you’re worried about the length is it? We have a solution for that as well!

How To Get The Dewy Fresh Face Look

Don’t we all love that dewy face? The one that glows and looks like a lily? We all dream that, don’t we? To help you folks out, Here are the makeup guide that will give you that beautiful radiance!

1. Start with a proper base

And no, we are not talking about foundation! We’re talking about Primer, which we all ignore. So better not do that if you want a perfect finish of your dewy face look.  Start with a good primer. And we suggest you opt for Bio oil, which is enriched with Vitamin E and helps in the improving the texture of skin, making it smooth and radiant looking. Buy it here! 

bio-oil-as-primer2. Choose the right foundation

Choosing the right foundation is important because that’s what defines how your look’s gonna be! So if you want the dewy fresh face, stay away from the matte bases. Instead, choose the creamy ones. These creamy bases will help you get the natural shine without looking all caked up. And after you’re done blending the foundation in the right way, keep the powder away, because that will mattify the look which is what we’re trying to avoid here! (Shop for foundations HERE)foundation-for-face3. Choose lip tint / creme instead of lipstick

Lipstick would be an overkill here. We’re trying to create a fresh faced look so lipstick won’t blend into the look much. Go for lip tint or lip creme, which is a better and less intense version of lipsticks. They are lighter and gives a very natural look compared to lipsticks. But if you want proper coverage, you can choose the lipstick, but make sure they are creamy, not matte. (BUY HERE)

lip-tint-for-dewy-look4. Eye makeup for the Dewy Face

Less is more when it comes to the dewy face look, ladies. Choose a kickass mascara (BUY HERE), which will give you both volume and length. Try in Maybelline, especially the Volum Express’ the falsies, which is pretty good with the volume, length and they even help with curling of your eyelashes. So you don’t have to be bothered with curling them. You can go for a stroke of kajal without any doubt. Eyeliner is fine too, but the thinner, the better. Choose a super glossy eyeshadow (BUY HERE) and if you don’t have one, just go for one in the nude shade. Apply it evenly on your eyelids and now apply a bit of vaseline in the middle of your lids. This will make your eyes look super sexy and glossy.

nude-eye-makeup5.Take good care of yourself

Doesn’t matter if you are a pro at makeup, you wont nail the look if you aren’t healthy inside out. It is essential to take good care of yourself. Like eating enough amount of food that is high in proteins and nutrients, and a lot of citrus fruits (I just can’t stress enough on this point). Drink loads of water. Exercise regularly and cut out the junk food. Exfoliate regularly, while keeping the cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine intact.


. . .  A last word,

       We all want to be like that model on that fashion magazine. She looks flawless, with her perfect skin and body, looking all.radiant and shiny. But remember, she wears a lot of makeup, there are many touch ups between the shots and the biggest tool, photoshop is there! So don’t run behind those false standards and disappoint yourself. You’re perfect you know ?

Being fit is important. Both for health and for appearance. I mean, who wants to look bulky with those extra pounds. So if your new year resolution was to stay fit, and you’re sticking to it, good going folks! But do you know that you should take extra care of your nutrition while you hit gym ? So, here is the list of what you need to eat!

1. Protein, protein and protein

Right, so you’re hitting gym regularly and doing the cardio religiously. But you’re not taking enough care of your nutrition, which will sabotage your fitness goals. So load up on proteins. Eat eggs, (whites, especially), legumes, lean meat like chicken. Salmon and tuna are loaded with rich nutrients like Omega 3 fatty acids which are good for your  skin and hair too.

protein-foods-for-fitness2. Drink loads of water

You sweat a lot while working out in the gym. Don’t you ? And you know what that means ? Dehydration. Therefore, make sure you drink lots and lots of water and this again, will help you with other things as well. So, make sure you carry a water bottle with you as you go to gym.

water-for-fitness3. Cut the junk out while hitting Gym

‘It’s just a bit of burger. What would it do?’, this is what we all do, don’t we ? But this is such a blunder. It doesn’t work like that if you keep eating junk. Along with doing the right exercises, it’s important to eat healthy. Don’t go for the junk. You can have cheat days, alright. But everyday can’t be a cheat day. Pay attention to what you eat.

4.Fruit smoothies

Better and easier. You can grab it on the go. Get citrus fruits in large amounts, they will fresh for long. Pomegranates, apples and strawberries with some yogurt makes the most delicious smoothies ever. And bananas too, which are like the powerhouses of energy. Have a toast with peanut butter and bananas before your workout session. If you don’t have enough time everyday to make smoothies, just pour some yogurt and fruit slices, freeze them in the ice cube tray. This way, you can just pop them your way in and out.

fruit-smoothies-while-gym5. Milk, nuts and green veggies

Milk is boring, isn’t it ? But do you know it is extremely beneficial to your body? It is full of calcium, which is helpful to the bone health. The casein protein present in the milk helps the muscle growth and you can add your favorite chocolate to it, making it both tasty and energizing. However, make sure you’re using dark chocolate only. Nuts are helpful too, have a handful of almonds, walnuts and apricots are energy packets. Have them before your workout sessions for the much needed energy. Green veggies are detoxifying, relaxing and energizing. Kale, spinach and broccoli are healthy and goodful. Include a healthy dose of spices in your diet. Peppers, chillies and jalapeno all are helpful in the weight loss are are good for heart too, if taken in the right amounts. Along with this all, it’s okay to have a chunk of dark chocolate once in awhile, to treat yourself and don’t shy away from that daily caffeine dose before hitting the gym!
