Why Fats Can Be Necessary at Times?

People nowadays are extremely careful of what they eat, how much calories, or fats it has, how it was made and more. They are very cautious of what they put inside their body and the food industry is realising the growing market in this health cautious public and using this factor to introduce new and unique types of products that are made all natural, fat free and low calorie and more.

But, what people do not realise is that just because a product says its fat free doesn’t necessarily means that its healthy, it also doesn’t mean it’s not healthy, but just looking at the label is not enough. One needs to properly read though the whole thing, see if this is something they require, based on their current diet, one should figure out what is it they are lacking or what they are overdoing, and then after making sure that one has thought of all this, should they make a decision on what to purchase.

Also, many times, people think that just cutting off all fats and calorie diet can turn one to be fit. That is a very grave misconception most have, that is not true. For instance, many think mayonnaise sauce is bad for health, and although that is true, but if one takes it in moderation then like any other food item, mayonnaise can also make a drab meal enjoyable. Mayonnaise is high in fat, but not saturate fat, so if taken in small portion and not included in the regular diet, then it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

Another misconception if of salad dressing in India especially. People think salad dressing has to be plain and boring and tasteless, but that is not the case. Healthy ingredients and perhaps even fruits and exotic oils and flours can be added to give it enough taste so that the salad doesn’t remain bland.

For people like me, who can barely cook anything, sandwiches act as a rescue to my kitchen ignorance. I can make something or the other with loaves of bread and make a sandwich out of it! Not only this, it is easy for people who are in a hurry and do not have enough time to cook. A sandwich is the best possible option where you can just make it and pack it, and eat it on the go!

• How to use mayonnaise on head?

Apply mayonnaise on head and keep it overnight, or for 8 hours. Then, use shampoo to wash it off. You would see multiple dead lice on the floor. Repeat the process for a better result. Use a high fat mayonnaise for the process because low amount of oil may not be enough!

The oil in the mayonnaise works on lice whereas the vinegar and lemon juice work on their eggs. While mayonnaise is not that effective in killing live lice eggs, I suggest that you still give it a try. Something is better than nothing and killing lice is a good start!
