When I look back, I'm always amazed by the healthy life style and the healthy eating habits of my Parents and Grand parents or I should say earlier generation. My father is about to hit 90 yrs, even today, he wakes up at 4 am to water the plants. I have never seen my mother sitting idle . My Mother and Grand Mother never had a cook book, nor had any electronic data base of recipes, never owned those fancy kitchen gadgets. I don't think they had an idea about the sources of vitamins and minerals nor the concept of balanced diet they gave to their families. My Mother may have known a bit about vitamins etc, but her Mother certainly didn't. Yet, my Grandmother managed to raise 11 children, who lived/ living happy and healthy life to their fullest extent. My mother managed with 6 children, exactly the same way as her mother did.
This makes me wonder, what we are upto in these modern days???
