Fight disease naturally

We've read all about anti-oxidants, but do you really know much about them? They not only protect your DNA from breaking down and mutating, but also prevent arthritis, heart diseases and cancers. Here's a primer by Dr Shikha Sharma.

Give your brain a workout

It is the most important organ in your body. If you don't use it, you will lose it. You’ll need a strong brain to tackle life as much as you need a fit body to tackle disease. Start with these tips, writes Dr Shikha Sharma.

Heroines take centre stage as Bollywood grows up

Nine food myths busted

Is frozen food bad for you? Will exercise help you lose weight? Does your microwave make your food toxic? It's time we got to know the truth behind some common food myths. Vir Sanghvi does a reality check.

Sex, lies and the threat of 'rape'

Why you must try these Delhi restaurants

Delhi has three new restaurants - Town Hall, Depot 29 and Farzi Café - only a couple of months old, yet a generation ahead of the competition. Can Bombay top that, wonders Vir Sanghvi.

High Fructose Corn Syrup, sodium nitrate, palm oil - watch out for these chemicals on food labels when at the grocery store, writes Dr Shikha Sharma.

It’s always a woman's fault!

Behind every unsuccessful man is a woman who ‘jinxed’ him. Blaming women for all the bad stuff that goes down is as old as time itself. What’s been happening with Anushka Sharma is pretty much par for the course, writes Seema Goswami.

Packages foods might be doing more harm than good

Your jar of jam or carton of juice may be convenient, but it's more of a chemical cocktail than a source of nutrition, writes Shikha Sharma

The French roast: The eternal favourite

While there are some great chicken dishes in their cuisine, French chefs will tell you that a roast chicken is the real test of a good kitchen as a dal is the test of a good Indian restaurant, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Why we miss out on gems closer home for fancy foreign tags

Sometimes, a food memoir doesn't just whet the appetite; it provides food for thought as well. Seema Goswami talks of how reading Pamela Timms' Korma Kheer & Kismet made her look inwards.

Herbs for health and wellness

We grow up with home-brewed tonics, beauty treatments and secret weapons growing in pots on our balconies and backyards. Here are some that might help with common health troubles too, writes Shikha Sharma.

Say no to pretension and snobbery in food

Those who think that cuisine is not about taste but about expensive ingredients know nothing about good food. Vir Sanghvi tells us why restaurants that rely on caviar, foie gras, truffle, etc. must be avoided.
