Catalyze Experiment

Research says grey hair is due to build up of h2o2. And Enzyme catalyze breaks down h2o2. As we age of course body produces less enzyme . But there are some fruits , vegetables rich in catalyze. And it’s an easy to experiment with and find out if it’s really rich in catalyze.

Buy H2O2 from drug store and take a little in glass bowl or if you have test tube and throw a piece of vegetable. Wait for 5 minute and if bubbles show up then it has catalyze. All good so far.

This Indian vegetable called Turai also known as ridge gourd is advertised for grey hair. And so I wanted to test if it’s rich in catalyze .

Experimented with onion, broccolis, cilantro, pineapple and last ridge gourd . Guess what ? Ridge gourd made bubbles so fast and most .

After heating and cooking though, I don’t know how much enzyme it will still have. I was just curious to know if it actually had any catalyze and so did this little experiment. For now, I will just keep enjoying Turai as vegetable. Next I will share few dishes with Turai.

Here are the pictures of experiment.

Cleansing Yellow Dragon Fruit

Browsed through new grocery store few days back and found yellow dragon fruit first time. Obviously I bought it .

It was small medium size and sweeter than red version of it. Ate whole thing and cleaned up like a dog .

Few hrs later I had to go and everything was fine . 10 mins later gotta go again …I got really cleansed . Did I get something or it’s dragon fruit ? Google confirmed it’s yellow dragon fruit . It’s like laxative. Went 3 times and that was it .

When you need a good cleansing, eat it. It was perfect timing for me since I am starting Navratri fast from tomorrow and was thinking to take something before starting .

Universe has perfect time for everything. Everything has a use. It’s just knowing when to use it . You learn by experiment .

Do you buy , try new fruits ?


Spring Food

Spring is here and you see lot of tender greens in yard and in grocery store too. Very cheap , fresh. Cilantro at Indian store is so cheap and plenty in spring. At food lion, there was a big bin of coconut and so bought one . Drank all that good water and made coconut , cilantro chutney.

Chutney went well with instant Ragi (Finger millet) Idli.

Easy to make fun meals with seasonal items that are good for us . Also good time to fast , cleanse now . Or just skip dinner one day.

Simple things that are easy to implement and cost nothing .


Mind Likes Routine

Mind likes routine so any change you want to make , make it a routine. That way mind gets settled .

  • Example , if you want to start fasting or eat only one meal once a week, then pick a day like every Saturday or Monday.
  • You can also pick 1st day of month or last day of the month.
  • If you follow Indian calendar, then ekadashi you can pick.
  • If you want to start yoga practice, meditation then also pick a day. Even at home practice , pick a day , time and just go with it.
  • Eat mono meal or soup or salad once a week for dinner.
  • End of the month , Sunday night neem shot for me . Hope you got the idea .


Ekadasi Meal

Ekadasi meal is supposed to be just 1 item, 1 time and min spices. Amaranth flour is used which is gluten free. Sindho salt is used little bit.

Even if you don’t observe Ekadasi vrat, it’s good to have this simple meals. And try to eat 1 or 2 meals with just 1 item. Avoid all day snacks.

With this modified eating I still see benefits. You are more aware of what is going in the mouth.

Do you observe ekadasi vrat ? How do you feel ?

Whenever we make changes in life style , diet we should observe how it’s feeling. Most of the time ppl are just looking at scale. So learn to observe how you are feeling. And you will know what works for you and what not.
