Keeping up with healthy eating becomes difficult during festivals like Diwali because we get to devour on different types of sweets and snacks. We don’t realize how many calories we have munched on until we see a weight gain once the festivals are over – you can relate with this, right?
People say that it is impossible to avoid calories during festivals because our festivals are incomplete without eating high calorie snacks like sweets, laddoos, chocolates etc. Eating such snacks can disturb our diet routine, and once it’s disturbed, it becomes hard to go back to our usual healthy-eating routine. So what can we do to avoid consuming high calorie food/snacks during festivals? Simple, we can switch to healthier alternatives of everything! We can get tasty trail mixes, sugar free sweets, low fat cookies, kale chips etc. All of these healthy things are available on this website called PlaceOfOrigin.in which I discovered just recently.
PlaceofOrigin.in (a Craftsvilla entity) is India’s largest curated marketplace for speciality Indian foods. With 200+ iconic regional sellers and 2500+ unique food products, PlaceofOrigin.in has the largest variety of mithai, chocolates, namkeen, biscuits, dryfruits, healthfood, pickles, jams, masalas, tea, coffee etc online.
PlaceOfOrigin is a place where you can find tons of healthy snacks. They have a separate category dedicated to only healthy snacks which you can buy for yourself and your family. Or you can also gift them to your friends and relatives. Since it’s Diwali, most of us are going to buy gifts for our loved ones, no? Then why not gift them something that’s good for their health? Here are some of the things from PlaceOfOrigin that look delicious and are healthy at the same time! They are pretty much unique too because I have never seen them anywhere else.
LOW FAT MOONG DAL CHIPS
I love moong dal’s pakode, but they are very unhealthy because they soak up a lot of oil. These moong dal chips contain salt and other spice content that gives them a nice chatpata (savoury) taste which we Indians love!
PROTEIN BAR WITH COCOA
Protein bars are a good gifting option for someone who’s on a diet. These ones are vegan, gluten free and sweetened with raisins.
KALE CHIPS – CHEESE AND ONION
I have been hearing a lot about Kale Chips and how they are so healthy and nutritious. You can get them in different flavors via PlaceOfOrigin.
For all the cookie lovers out there! I love to have 2-3 cookies daily with my morning tea and evening tea. They keep my tummy filled until it’s breakfast time or evening snack time. I’d love to try these navagrain cookies because they are rich in fibre. ☺
COCOA ALMOND COOKIE
Cocoa almond cookie – sounds so yummy! You can have it whenever you are craving for something sweet. The combination of almond and chocolate will satisfy your sweet tooth!
So these were a few of many healthy snack options from PlaceOfOrigin. Don’t you think that all of these snacks will make a good gifting option for this Diwali?! Comment down below and let me know which snack did you find the most exciting!
