Avoid junk, enjoy natural fast foods: Dr Aggarwal
It is good have fast foods but not the regular snacks and rolls. Dr Aggarwal has emphasised on the need to have natural fast foods like fruits, vegetables, milk products and sattu.

FAST FOOD is better for health – now this has come from the horse's mouth – but don't confuse it with snacks and burgers. In an interaction on a TV programme, Dr KK Aggarwal has revealed this.

"Natural fast food is good for health", said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India while interacting with public through a programme, organized by Zee Manthan.

Dr. Aggarwal said that natural fast food means eating fruits, vegetables, milk products, sprouts and sattu. On the contrary, unnatural fast food, also called as junk food, is bad for the heart’s health as it consists of items like refined bad carbohydrates and either animal bad fat or trans-fats.

Dr. Aggarwal further said that Sattu is grounded roasted powder of soaked pulses and cereals. It is consumed along with fruit slices, gur or milk. Green chillies, lemon juice and salt can be added to add flavor.

The commonest form of sattu is grounded roasted black gram or chana. Other common variety is grounded roasted black gram with barley.

Originally, sattu was made of seven Anaja (7 cereals, millets and pulses). The seven ingredients are maize and barley (cereals), black gram, pigeon gram or Arhar, green pea, khesari daal, kultha daal (pulses).

Sattu is a high fiber diet with low sugar producing properties. It is a cooling and refreshing fast food with antidiabetic and antiobesity properties.

It is a complete breakfast, mid day or lunch meal and has minerals and vitamins. It is both energy drink and energy food. So called energy drinks available in the market are harmful as they contain three times the caffeine content of coffee or tea.

Sattu drink can be made sweet by adding gur or honey, sour by adding lemon and salted by adding black or rock salt. Roasting is one of the best forms of cooking.
