Food options for Navratras

Food options for Navratras

It’s a great time to detox your body for almost 7-8 days.

Please don’t fall for fried snack and fried potatoes that are so common and increase your body inflammation leading to weight gain.
If you prefer potatoes then have roasted or boiled 1 medium size potato per day with rock salt.

Ram Dana Ladoo also called Amaranth cakes in moderation, since they are sweet, try the ones with pure Jaggery or organic honey (1 Tbs serving size).

Roasted flax seed with favorite fruit.

Gluten free flour buckwheat flour chapatti/bread: its great for weight loss too in everyday life.

Sendha Namak or rock salt is great low sodium pure salt which should be used anyway in everyday cooking.

Fox Nuts or Makhana: Rich source of protein and carbohydrate, best eaten roasted and sprinkled with rock salt or sendha namak. Avoid the fried options as I said before.

Eat high fiber and high pectin fruits like apples and pears.

Top up the water and increase detoxing by having herbal teas like Jasmine and Dandelion root tea.
