Drink Liquids & Water
During the lockdown & quarantine, drink lots of water and other hot liquids like tea & coffee to stay hydrated. A body with less water is more vulnerable to virus attacks than a well-hydrated body.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, starting your day with a healthy meal is most important. We suggest you not to eat a heavy breakfast as you are not going out to burn lots of calories during the lockdown and quarantine time. A perfect meal could be simple chapati and butter with some leftover curry of the previous night dinner. Include as much as vitamin C you can into your breakfast. Vitamin C helps to strengthen your immune system and tomatoes have lots of vitamin C, so include 1 or 2 tomatoes into your breakfast. Avoid heavy & oily tempting parathas during the quarantine time.
Lunchtime could be more crucial for you as your basic appetite for eating a delicious tempting lunch during your normal life before the Coronavirus (COVID 19) breakout forced us to quarantine us in our homes
.It is highly recommended that you don’t go for heavy lunches that you use to eat in your normal life during the work hours in your office, instead, we suggest you eat light and healthy lunches. You can eat plenty of foods that are tasty and yet are light and easy to digest. You are not going for a walk outside your home as you have quarantined yourself in your home so stay away from all those heavy mutton & chicken karahis. Instead, we suggest you have some rice at lunch. Some fried rice or chicken pulao with raita is can be a very good option for your lunch. Of course, you can rotate your lunch with other healthy and light recipes to keep your taste buds get going.
Don’t forget to include raita in your meal no matter if you are eating pulao or something else. Yogurt (Raita) has lots of vitamin C so don’t forget your intake of vitamin C will help to increase your immunity against Coronavirus and will keep you fit and healthy during quarantine and lockdown time.
Your dinner is the last meal of the day and it is as much as important as breakfast. Eating a healthy dinner is way more important than breakfast because you still can afford a mistake of eating a nonhealthy and heavy breakfast as you have a full day ahead to digest heavy breakfast but if you have a wrong dinner, you should keep in mind that you don’t have time to digest your unhealthy and heavy dinner.
We suggest you take your dinner a minimum of 4 hours before you go to bed so that your dinner shall get digested properly. Going straight to bed after eating dinner is never a wise thing to do and especially in quarantine and lockdown. Lockdown and quarantine are all about staying fit and healthy.
Sleep is very important to stay healthy and fit. Proper sleep not also help to rest your body and mind it also strengthens your immune system. Quarantine and lockdown at home does not mean that you destroy your sleeping routine, instead, you have to more organize a regular with your sleeping routine than ever before.
