Soha Ali Khan Column: Growing up I saw my mother balance family life and work effortlessly. In many ways, she has inspired me to become the person I am today, and a lot of my habits and mantras are borrowed from the way she managed her household and family.

So, working out regularly and eating right is something that has been naturally ingrained in me since childhood, and it’s something I live by even as an adult.

I have made sure to follow a well-balanced diet, which includes a variety of nutrients which helps in nourishing the body, while also strengthening the immune system. Besides eating healthy, I also make sure I snack mindfully. Almonds are my go-to snack as they are a source of 15 nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, protein, riboflavin, zinc, etc. These nutrients are important to help grow your muscle mass and keep you energetic through the day.

We both love cake, but as someone who is very conscious about what we eat, I try to bake using healthier alternatives. With Dussehra around the corner, launching us into the festive season, both of us
