Happy Healthy Diwali: Never forget your Health on Diwali

From the card parties which flag off the season, to the endless array of snacks and sweets we eat, Diwali is the time when we tend to lose track of our eating, drinking, and fitness habits.
Any advice on avoiding sweets altogether would be like throwing a wet blanket on the festive spirit.

The point is to enjoy the festival while keeping in mind to eat sensibly and avoid going overboard on food. That way you won’t end up feeling guilty by the end of the festive season.

So here we have it, the following health tips – these are the bare minimum you need to stay fit, happy and healthy enough to party during and after Diwali.

Practising Mithai Safety

More than avoiding binging on the mithai, the increase in food adulteration around Diwali is what will hurt your health more. There is reportedly an increase in misbranded, substandard and unsafe sweets during Diwali. To keep yourself safe, remember to check the manufacturing and expiry dates, along with the license number of packed food products, and always get a bill against your purchase.

Snacking and Weight Gain

A sudden shock to both normal meals and regular sleep patterns comes from late-night parties binge-eating, tanking up on alcohol and lack of exercise. Instead, undertake a mindset towards practising moderation, especially towards fried food, alcohol. Replace oily snacks with a combination of fresh fruits, curd dips, raw salads, roasted food items and nuts like almonds and pistachios. And, drinking and eating out needs to be balanced with a post-Diwali detox.

Healthy snack

Here are some simple go-to healthy snacks fixes for you on this Diwali.

Choose healthy Sugar alternatives

Substitute the unhealthy ingredients with a healthy one. Make ghee your best friend instead of oil or unsaturated fats. Swap refined powdered sugar with natural plant-based sugar, stevia. Add lots of nuts like raisins, almonds, walnuts, dry apricots etc. You can also include healthy superfoods like Chia seeds, Flexi seeds, sesame and sunflower. Laddoos made from such ingredients are in vogue, here is my fav. Chickpea flour healthy vegan ladoo recipe.

Stay hydrated throughout the day

The more diluted blood will have a lesser concentration of sugar level. So you need to keep your blood sugar level control. To keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, drink as much as the liquid you can. Consume low-calorie smoothies, juices, coconut water and drinking water more frequently.

Sipping on Herbal Tea: Perfect drink for tea lovers

Tea is a widely loved beverage. Statistically, out of ten, eight people are tea lovers. And this is a fact that doesn’t require much reinforcement. This Diwali season, step back from the regular sugar-coated drinks and try a cup of herbal tea instead. You could opt for an exotic blend from Darjeeling or Assam, or maybe a flavourful mélange of herbs and fruits like chamomile or Kashmiri kahwa. This not only leaves a lasting impression on your kin but also motivates them to continue on their path towards a healthy life.

Make this Diwali special for yourself, family and friends.
Have a Healthy Diwali!
