Lights, celebration and food – Deepavali is the Hindu festival of lights celebrated by many across Asia. In Asia we are lucky to be a part of a plethora of cultural celebrations throughout the year and with each we are spoilt with lavish arrays of food! While celebrations are well-deserved occasions to enjoy and give yourself a break, as always it is still important to be mindful of what you’re eating.
With so many the vibrant sweets and snacks, it’s easy to over-indulge. Here’s a quick guide to a few favourite Deepavali snacks and their calories per serving. While calories never paint the whole picture when it comes to nutrition as they are influenced by other information such sugar and fat content, they can be used as quick and easy indicators of how much you are eating per portion.
From all of us at PurelyB, Happy Deepavali! Have a joyous and mindful celebration this festive season. Indulge but don’t over-indulge!
