Holi-and-food

  • Don’t make Holi an excuse to binge on unhealthy calories and invite health risks.
  • Just make them in a healthier way which does not affect your waistline or disrupt your weight loss plans.

Dr Ankita Ghag, Clinical Nutritionist, Vacchan Aarogya and Diabetes Care 365 said:

  • Instead of bhang consume milkshakes, aam panna, jal jeera, thick lassi, veggie smoothies, lemon water, fruit juice shots, coconut water and dry fruit shakes.
  • Replace sweets with natural food sweeteners like dates, cocoa ladoo or barfi, apricots barfi and anjeer barfi.
  • To make sweets healthy, add rolled oats, wheat flakes, flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.
  • Opt for baked, grilled or sauteé food items, instead of deep fried foods
  • Eat flavoured hummus with veggie sticks, steamed kothimbir wadi, steamed veggie handvo, steamed muthia, steamed patra and baked soya/ragi sev.

As per Rutika Murudkar, clinical nutritionist at Naraindas Morbai Budhrani:

  • Add less sugar or jaggery in sweets.
  • Eat sweets and savouries in controlled proportions.
  • Consume masala milk with nuts like almonds, pistachios, kesar, cardamom and elaichi.
  • In water, add pudina, coriander, black salt and  drink.
  • Grind cucumber and watermelon, make a juice and add sabja and drink. This will cool your system.
