The festivities and celebrations have already begun as Diwali is right around the corner. The festival of lights is all about family, food and fun. During Diwali, most of us can’t stop drooling just thinking about the exotic food and snacks.
With Diwali comes the sinful deep-fried, sugary, calorie-laden and fatty foods that entice our senses. This results in gorging on delicacies which are loaded with ghee and drenched in syrup like gulab jamun, motichoor ladoos, halwa, jalebis and the list is endless.
Later begins the horror in the form of tight clothes and bulging waistline. It gets worse if you are already suffering from Type 2 diabetes, high blood-pressure or Heart disease. The market is already loaded with adulterated sweets. It was reported that 1 in 5 food items fail quality checks which has raised a safety scare in the country.
But don’t fret as we can still satisfy our cravings by making a few changes by replacing traditional sweets with healthier options. So, this Diwali prefer fruit-based and low-fat sweets with natural sugars. There are a lot of healthy recipes which are made of high- quality nutritious ingredients and we can make them at home for our family and friends. There is no need to make any compromises by adopting these simple yet smart ways to enjoy this season
Even gift packs for loved ones should include organic teas, dry fruits, sugar-free chocolates and low-calorie nut based sweets which promote a healthy and fit lifestyle.
