Organic way to indulge in Navratri!

Navratri is a nine-day festival, occurring twice a year, celebrated in the honor of goddess mahadevi. During this time, a lot of people choose to fast in order to show their unflinching faith, love, and utmost devotion toward the goddess. Would you want to know the best way to fast during Navratri? Here are some suggestions you can use to indulge in an organic way:

Choose Organic A2 desi ghee for all-purposes

As most oils are restricted to be used during Navratri, organic desi ghee should be your ultimate choice. Here’s why:

  • Organic desi ghee ensures that it is free from adulteration compared to the usual desi ghee available in the market
  • A2 desi ghee is made using A2 milk – rich in A2 beta-casein protein found in gir cows – known to be extremely healthy and low in fat.
  • For long, desi ghee has been a part of several holy ceremonies. Light up a dia instead of using wax dias available in the market for an organic Navratri.

Also, consuming desi ghee during Navratri fasting that is rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids, helps you make your heart stronger and keep your energy levels in check.

Eat light but feel full!

Hunger pangs are a real thing. No matter what we eat, we all require a certain amount of carbohydrates to feel full. Here’s why:

  • Carbohydrates are a rich source of energy
  • They keep us full for long
  • A part of our daily nutritional requirement

As we all know, usage of onion and garlic is already prohibited and we cannot consume “grains and other usual pulses” during Navratri. Therefore, it becomes imperative to find recipes that are simple, without grains or pulses and recipes that require less ingredients. Sabudana khichdi is one such dish. Sago, which comprises the sabudana khichdi, is known to improve digestion, is good for your joints and a good source of energy. It is also an accepted food during Navratri fast as it doesn’t come under the “grains/pulses” category.

Organic fruits and vegetables are it!

Fasting is not just about abstinence from food, it also means consuming “pure” and “healthy” food items as well. Here’s why:

  • Consuming pure and unadulterated food is the spirit of this festival
  • In hindu culture, satvik bhojan, consuming only fruits and vegetables is considered the best way to live life.
  • Pure food is given much more importance than tasty and unhealthy food.

Therefore, consuming vegetables and fruits that are fresh from the farm will be a cherry on the cake. Organic fruits and vegetables are free from any pesticides or insecticides, making them a safer alternative for you to consume. Moreover, organic fruits and vegetables contain much more nutrients than any regular pesticide-sprayed veggies and fruits ever would.
