The Navratri festivities were all about fun, laughter and, of course, good food. From get-togethers with friends and family to enjoying delicious delicacies, there is so much to love about the festivities. It’s the season to guilt-free indulge in sweets and deep-fried snacks, letting go of all our inhibitions. But the festive favourites, the constant sugary, greasy and rich dishes aren’t the best when it comes to our overall diet and health. As Dussehra or Vijayadashami concludes, it’s time to detox our body and eat a healthy diet to get rid of all the excess calories. Many of us take extreme steps and stick to fad diets as soon as the festivals end. But today there are many detox plans that will help you flush out the toxins as well as ensure a healthy and balanced diet. We have brought the recipes for five detox bowls that will help you maintain good gut health in the next coming days.
Here Are 5 Food Bowls For Post-Festive Detox:
1. Muesli Bowl
A breakfast bowl that is filling and delicious. The goodness of honey and the energy of sunflower seeds are combined with muesli which is gluten-free as well as rich in satiating fibre and protein. This muesli bowl will help you kick-start your detox diet regime.
2. Salad Bowl
Do away with all the fried food and sweetmeats. It’s time to add loads of healthy salad to the diet. A salad bowl is a tasty way to detox after heavy festive indulgences. In this salad bowl, we combine beetroot with celery, apples and broccoli. We top it up with some walnuts, which are rich in healthy fats.
A bowlful of carrots, broccoli rabe, green mango, mung bean sprouts and some lime serves as a perfect detox meal. These ingredients assist the body in eliminating toxic substances, clearing blood vessels, as well as enhance bowel movement at the same time.
This Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal bowl is prepared with oats, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds. It is the perfect meal to begin your day, isn’t it? You can also add a spoonful of peanut butter as well as some hazelnut spread to add more flavour to it. Top it up with chopped bananas as well as some almond flakes.
Eat your greens! We all have grown up listening to this and only now do we realise its importance. A delicious bowl of steamed vegetables is the healthiest way to eat up your veggies and a balanced way to detox.
