The festive season is here!
The lead-up to the end of the year is a special time. It is when we reflect on the year that is ending and make plans for the coming year. We are filled with hope and are motivated to continue to improve ourselves in the new year. We set goals for ourselves and make resolutions so we can do more, achieve more and live a healthier life. One resolution that usually makes it to most people’s list is to eat healthy. Understandably so, as it is essential for us to eat right to be fit. And, unless we eat right and are in good shape we can’t do more or achieve more. Besides, it just feels good to be the healthiest version of oneself.
Over the course of the year, we all have our ups and downs. Sometimes we lean towards a controlled diet while at other times we tend to let go. But, by and large, we do try to make healthier choices where our eating habits are concerned. Good weeks, cheat days, whatever it takes to keep us on the path. Then comes the festive season. Navratri, Durga Puja, Dusshera, Diwali, Guru Nanak Jayanti, Milad-un-Nabi, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, one festival after another. This is when our resolve to eat healthier is truly challenged.
Not so long ago, festive occasions were celebrated with home-cooked goodies. If you take a trip down the memory lane, you’ll remember that the appetising aromas wafting from the kitchen were as much a part of the Diwali allure as the sights and sounds. Similarly, Christmas meant freshly baked plum cakes. In fact, for every occasion, part of the magic was the awesome homemade celebratory food.
The times have changed as has the pace of life. It is not that easy these days to cook all those goodies that our mum and grandma made at home when we were young. The demands of modern life make it difficult for us to put in as much time in the kitchen as we once used to. Hence, these days during the festive season most of us opt to buy goodies from sweet marts. Which is not necessarily a bad thing just that there’s no guarantee of the food’s quality. These snacks and sweetmeats are very often loaded with sugar, artificial colouring, and cooked with questionable quality oil. Thus, all the efforts made by us to maintain our health are wasted.
Don’t get us wrong, we don’t believe you shouldn’t indulge in all the yummy food that make these festivals special for us. What we, at Happy Belly, feel is that it is important that these snacks be of good quality. And, since we cannot make all of these foods at home, to have control on the quality it is important that we buy them from a trusted source. We can make those little choices,as we do during the course of the year, to ensure that what we and our family munch on are nutritious and wholesome.
We all have our festive favourites.
We believe that we can all enjoy the festive season with the treats that this season has to offer us without compromising on their quality. To make it easier for you to face the challenge of eating healthy during this festive season we’ve created a special menu that has all the festive favourites.
Chakli, shev, gujia, rava & besan laddu, you name it, we got it. Also, you can try something different this time with our Boston cream cheese cupcakes, almond rocks, chocolate truffle cupcakes and more such exclusive yummies. All these delicacies have that special taste that only homemade goodies do and are made with the best ingredients available.
Our festive delicacies are also perfect for gifting.
The last quarter of this year is upon us. The festive season will begin soon. Here’s hoping you conclude the year just as you started it, on a healthy and happy note!
