Whether you crave for a beverage or a delicious soup in breakfast, this list has everything. So kick off your holiday season deliciously:
Start off with healthy dhoklas:
Dhoklas are a popular Gujarati snack. Usually made from rice flour, they are full of flavour and form a great combination with the evening tea. The sight of dhoklas can water many mouths with ease.
But you don’t have to compromise with your health. This healthy version of dhokla is much beneficial. It contains many vitamins such as Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Vitamin E along with Phosphorus, Calcium and other essential minerals obtained from added vegetables inside the dhokla premix.
Have a bite of this healthy Gujarati snack with a dollop of chutney for the best taste.
Prepare a party mix:
Kids love chips. And during the holiday seasons, it would be hard for you to restrict their diet. How many times can you turn down their requests?
But you don’t have to give them unhealthy choices. Prepare a light and hearty party mix at home by combining cereals, unsalted peanuts and unsweetened raisins. It’ll act as a great snack for them and you’ll not have to compromise with their nutrition.
Have a vegetable-filled soup
When you’re snuggled up in a quilt, having a hot and tasty soup can make your day. But when it comes to preparing, you either have a long recipe or processed and preservative-infused options.
Well, that’s not the case anymore. You can get a Veggie Booster which has many greens (spinach, rosemary, drumstick, etc.) and a great taste. It doesn’t take much effort to prepare.
The best thing about this soup, it has no added sugars, preservatives, colours or flavours. This means you get a natural, nutrient-rich and amazing soup for your holidays.
Choose a great beverage
During the holidays, you’ll expect guests too. Apart from that, you would want something delicious to drink with your snacks as well.
You don’t have to choose a soft drink. They are not only full of calories but are also extremely harmful to the teeth. In place of the soft drinks, get Dudhi Jaljeera.
It combines the health benefits bottle gourd and the taste of jaljeera. Along with bottle gourd, it also contains mint. Mint improves brain function, relieves indigestion and has many nutrients.
So you get the goodness of real vegetables in the form of a hearty beverage. You can serve it to your guests too.
Keep the illness at bay with the Immunity Enhancer
A viral or cold can ruin the frolic atmosphere of your holidays. Don’t let it!
Use the immunity enhancer. As the name suggests, it boosts your body’s immunity system by empowering it with necessary minerals and nutrients. With the help of Amla (Indian Gooseberry), it is rich in Vitamin C.
It also helps in weight loss management and aids in being anti-allergen. With the help of the Immunity Enhancer, you can ensure that your family enjoys the holidays freely without any seasonal diseases.
Finish off with a chocolate dessert
A great dessert satisfies the taste buds and finishes the cravings. Don’t choose a chocolate cake, as it can ruin your diet (371 calories in 100 gram). Instead, go for a homemade chocolate bark dessert.
Whip the dark chocolate bark, stir it constantly on a double boiler. Spread it evenly in a thin layer and add pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes and nuts to make it a flavour-filled delight.
You can experiment with the toppings by adding strawberries or cashews, depending on your taste (or your kids’ preference).
Now you don’t have to worry about the holidays’ menu. All of the options mentioned above take a few minutes to prepare so you’ll have more time to spend with your loved ones instead of the kitchen.
