From energising breakfast to a satisfying dinner, this guide by Dr Siddhant Bhargava, co-founder and nutritionist of Food Darzee, offers delicious and healthy alternatives to keep you nourished during this auspicious period.
Start your day with a glass of milk and some dry fruits to retain energy. Pair the milk with fruits like chikoo or apple for a nutritious start.
Include vegetables and a source of protein like cottage cheese or soya. Opt for nutrient-rich vegetables like spinach and kale.
Try sabudana khichdi, moriya ki khichdi, boiled potato chaat, or singhara chillas as healthy alternatives.
Choose healthier options for rainy evenings. Replace fried foods with roasted preparations like papad or chivda.
Enjoy raw bananas or potatoes in limited quantities to avoid discomfort.
Stay hydrated with eight to ten glasses of water or green tea.
For dinner, try chapatis made of rajgira flour, singhara flour, or moriya ki khichdi. Accompany them with two bowls of vegetables or salad with cottage cheese or soya.
Indulge in a homemade dessert and end the day with a cup of skimmed milk and some fruits before bedtime.
