Healthy Food Plan during Fasting


Healthy Food Plan during Fasting


The month of Shravan/Sawan is an auspicious period for those observing fasting in the Hindu religion. This seasonal fasting has several health benefits and is believed to detoxify the body and purify the mind. During this time, it is essential to maintain a balanced and healthy diet to keep your energy levels high and your body nourished. Here are some food tips you can follow during the Sawan fasting to keep yourself healthy and energized:

1. Stay hydrated: It is essential to keep yourself hydrated during fasting. Make sure to drink enough water and other healthy fluids like coconut water, lemon water, and herbal teas to replenish your fluids.

2. Consume foods that are light on the stomach: Since you will be fasting for extended periods, it’s essential to consume foods that are light on the stomach and quickly digested. You can consume foods such as fresh fruits, boiled vegetables, kuttu (buckwheat) ki roti, banana flour thalipeeth (crepes) which are easy to prepare and provide good nutrition.

3. Include protein & fibre rich foods: Protein-rich foods help maintain energy levels during fasting, and you can include foods like paneer, tofu, and sprouts in your diet to meet your protein requirements. You can consume dryfruits like makhana, almonds, raisins to get essential nutrients.  Moong is the only type of pulse that can be eaten during the Shravan fast.

4. Avoid fried and unhealthy foods: During fasting, it’s essential to avoid unhealthy and fried foods high in sodium to keep yourself healthy. Instead, you can consume boiled vegetables and grilled or baked foods, which are better for your health.

5. Don’t skip meals: It’s essential not to skip meals during fasting as it can cause a drop in blood sugar levels and leave you feeling weak and tired. Instead, stick to eating small meals every few hours to keep yourself nourished.

6. Snack smartly: To keep yourself energized during the day, consume healthy snacks such as fruits, nuts, and yogurt. These snacks will help keep you full for longer periods and provide essential nutrients.

7. Boost your iron intake: Consuming iron-rich foods such as spinach, beetroot, and pomegranate juice during fasting can help prevent anemia and boost your energy levels.
