I'm back with a diet plan and some Naratri Vrat recipes in the series of posts related to Weight Loss During Navratri. Well, I don't believe in heavy fried foods during the Navratri fast as there is no point in fasting if you are eating yourself sick and burping and burping every night with a heavy stomach. Eeeks! … I hate this feeling.
At least during the Vrat, when everyone tries to control their hunger and wait for that one meal in the evening, along with various mini-meals throughout the day … of fried peanuts, roasted makhane, dry fruits, bananas, but I try to be light to stay and healthy. So a day ago I prepared a wonderful meal for myself. Look here.
That looks good, doesn't it? I don't know what you think about it all, but I want to assure you that this was a really complete meal and held me up all day. Of course, I forgot to tell you that I have my only meal during lunch instead of dinner. That keeps me light and I can walk on a lighter belly until late at night. 🙂
Now I know you all want me to stop babbling and just wait for the Navratri menu. Before you decide to leave the site, here is the map.
Two glasses of lukewarm water with apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Nowadays, due to Covid 19, I have been taking Giloy Swaras daily for a year.
A cup of milk with two spoonfuls of roasted amaranth seeds was added. Check the recipe here
An orange or Mozambique with a cup of black coffee with stevia after half an hour.
My healthy meal
Vrat ka dhokla
- Vrat ke chawal
- Quark I used half a kator with water, but you can increase it if you want.
- Washed and chopped spinach
- Salt, Soda Bicarb or Eno Fruit Salt. (I prefer Eno 1 sachet, not in the picture below)
Mix the sama circle, salt, curd and mix well.
Add the chopped spinach.
- Mix well and add a little water to soak the rice nicely. If you're using soda bicarb add it now.
- After half an hour, add eno fruit salt and mix well. Micro high for 4-5 minutes. You can also use steamers. It takes ten to fifteen minutes to cook well in it.
- Do a knife test. Insert a knife and see if it comes out clean. If so, it’s done.
- Cut into slices as desired.
- With spicy pumpkin and peanut chutney.
Roasted peanuts a handful with a cup of sugar-free tea. I like my sugar-free tea with peanuts, but you can add stevia if you want. Aah! This reminds me: do you buy roasted peanuts from the market or do you roast them at home? I make my own salted peanuts at home. How I do it … will be in the next post. Stay in contact. 🙂
As I told you, I have my full meal during lunch, so I only have one glass of milk with six almonds crushed and boiled with it during dinner. It's a great health drink after my hour-long night walk. The peanuts in the evening actually keep me going.
If you want your full meal in the evening, you can simply swap the lunch and dinner menu. No problem with that. 🙂
Water and exercise
Water and exercise are the most important "Ws" in my Navratri fast. I drink at least 15 to 20 glasses of water a day, but if you can't, you have at least 6 to 8 glasses of water.
The workout is my regular Leslie Sansones Walk-at-Home program in the morning of 2 to 3 miles and a brisk one hour walk at night. Basically, I believe that burning 500 calories a day is a must. It keeps my happiness hormones flowing smoothly. 🙂
See you soon here with two easy Navratri recipes. Stay healthy, stay strong, because you only live once.
