Oh, did you try that? If not then do it now.

 

Grapes, when dried in sun, turn green/golden/black appealing bites, and we call them –raisins. In India, they are known as kismis or kishmish. These juicy bites not just offer you sweet bursting taste but also provide you plenty of benefits. These are one of the oldest and cheapest dry fruits that you can come across. They contain potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, and a bunch of essential vitamins. Some of the powerful benefits we can reap from this nutritional punch are:

  • Relieves constipation
  • Reduces hypertension
  • Control diabetes
  • Cures fever
  • Reduces arthritis pain
  • Reduces diarrhea, and the list goes on

 

Also, these titbits help you with reducing your panic attacks that might arise before travelling, during exam time, or when you are anxious. Yes, you wouldn’t know this as its one of the hidden grandma tips. Now that you know, pop some raisins in your mouth whenever your heart races.

 

If you can’t kiss the miss, you can just have kismis (wink)!

Dates have a history that goes back to the Neolithic times in Egypt and Syria. You’ll be surprised to know that there are more than thirty varieties of dates found all over the world. Some are soft, while others are dry, and few of them are semi-dry. Irrespective of your favourite texture and taste, you have the liberty to pick any from those many choices.

 

Like many other dried fruits and nuts, even dates are packed with nutrients. Rich in iron and protein, loaded with vitamin B1, B2, A1, and C, and good sources of calcium, minerals, zinc, magnesium and potassium, these fruity gems help us have:
