Fasting Tips Diet Plan and Recipes

Navratri: Navratri is one of the very important festivals for Hindus. It is a nine-day festival and the tenth day is celebrated as Dussehra (Dasara). It is also known as Vijayadashami. During Navratri, nine forms of Devi are worshipped. Navratri is celebrated all across India and Nepal. After twenty days from Dasara, we celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights.

Navratri – Diet tips to observe Fast:
Devotees also take part in some noble activies during the navratri festival. Other important activities for which people keep waiting for the whole year are the fun-filled Garba and Dandiya.

Firstly, let me tell you that fasting is a really good practice as it helps in cleansing and detoxifying your body and mind. However, devotees who fast during the navratri, need to follow a proper diet plan to stay healthy.
Here we will suggest a few diet tips and plans which you can follow while observing fast.

Give a start on the day of your fast by having a cup of green tea and two dates.
Then, you can have fruits, nuts and raisins for the breakfast.
At noon, you can have fruit juice/milkshake/ sabudaana kheer/ coconut water.
Then, you can have sabudaana khichdi/rajgira aata roti with khopre ki chatni by making use of rock salt in the preparation for lunch.
In the evening, you can have either aloo chat or aloo palak salad.
Start your dinner with a vegetable soup, a bowl of salad with kuttu ka atta/rajgira roti and sabzi followed by low-fat lauki halwa or carrot halwa.
Have a glass of skimmed milk before going to bed.
It is important to have such light foods during your fast to keep yourself energetic. Also, you need stamina to enjoy the Dandiya and Garba during the Navratri. However, we suggest pregnant women and diabetic patients avoid fasting.
