Krishna Janmashtami or Janmashtami 2021 is a day dedicated to Lord Krishna’s adoration. The festival will take place on August 30 this year. During the day, most followers fast and prepare bhog as a sacrifice to the deity. During the fasting time, however, only a limited number of items are permitted. If you’re fasting on Janmashtami, you can consume dry fruits, sabudana, and amaranth, among other things. If you’re unsure what to eat during the Janmashtami vrat, we’ve put up a list of nutritious snack and drink ideas for you.
During Janmashtami 2021 fasting: 7 healthful food and drinks to enjoy:
1) The Sabudana
During a fast, sabudana is one of the most beneficial substances. It’s a good source of protein, fiber, and calcium, among other nutrients. Soak the sabudana, then simmer it in milk until it thickens, then add the dry fruits.
2) Samak, also known as Barnyard Millet
Both barnyard millet (samak ke chawal) and water chestnut flour (singhare ka atta) can be consumed during a fast. These gluten-free ingredients are high in fiber and low in gluten. Samak has the lowest carbohydrate content of any millet variety.
For their vitamins and minerals, nutritionists can’t get enough makhana or fox nuts. Cholesterol and salt levels are low, while phosphorus, calcium, and iron levels are high. By heating them in milk, you can make a low-fat kheer. Because of its low glycemic index, makhanas are also advised for diabetes.
4) The amaranth
For the Janmashtami vrat, amaranth can be utilized to prepare wonderful treats. Use the flour to create bread or combine it with jaggery and chopped almonds to make a healthy laddoo. It’s high in magnesium, phosphorus, and iron, and it’s also high in fiber and protein. It can also make a person feel fuller for extended periods of time.
Coconut is a high-fat fruit with a high antioxidant and fiber content. It has a low glycemic index, which means it helps to speed up metabolism. You may prepare a delicious kebab with grated coconut and sabudana if you don’t want to eat it raw. Is it possible to proclaim it the healthiest kebab in the world?
If you’re looking for something refreshing to drink, try lassi. The yogurt used to make lassi is excellent for gut health. It assists digestion, avoids bloating, promotes bone health, and contains probiotics. Blend yogurt with banana slices and walnuts to add flavor.
7) Water from the coconut
Coconut water is a great way to hydrate oneself. Enjoy the natural sweetness and antioxidant boost. You can add a few mint leaves, honey, and lemon juice to give it a unique flavor.
Enjoy these nutritious options while celebrating Lord Krishna’s feast! Wishing you all a happy Janmashtami!
