The festival of lights is here and we can certainly feel the excitement. We look forward to delicious sweets and yummy snacks, but at the same time health and hygiene are also on all our minds. It is a time that lifts up our mood when surrounded with our loved ones giving us opportunities to get together. That’s not it! How can we forget to indulge in our favourite foods - without any guilt! Can you believe that Diwali can be joyous and healthy at the same time? Yes, you read that rightly.
In India, sweets are positively entrenched in our culture as happy celebration foods. During Diwali specially, we look forward to delicious sweets such as kaju katlis, gujiyas, ladoos and barfis, but at the same time worry about our health. When we celebrate Diwali, we tend to eat our hearts out and then later cringe on the same fact due to the unlimited food delights. So how do we bring all of this together to treat ourselves without feeling guilty and find interesting ways to celebrate around food with families?
With a little bit of planning, let us see how we can ensure healthy eating during Diwali with our families and friends. Here we are 4 tips on how to eat smartly during this Diwali in order to keep your health in check.
