As the vibrant festival of Onam approaches, the aroma of traditional Kerala delicacies fills the air. While indulging in the festive spirit is essential, maintaining a balance between tradition and health is equally important.

 

This blog unveils 5 healthy Onam choices that let you relish the festive feast without compromising on your nutritional goals.

 

Sadhya Reimagined:

 

The sumptuous Sadhya is the heart of Onam celebrations, but you can make it healthier by opting for brown rice instead of white rice. Brown rice is rich in fiber and nutrients, offering sustained energy without the sugar spikes. Load your plate with a variety of vegetable curries, sambar, rasam, and indulge in moderation.

 

 

 

Protein-Packed Parippu Curry:

 

Lentils are a staple of Kerala cuisine and are packed with protein and fiber. Include parippu (lentil) curry in your Sadhya for a nourishing boost. The protein content aids in keeping you full and satisfied.

 

 

 

Avial- A Veggie Bonanza:

 

Avial, a medley of vegetables cooked in coconut and yogurt, is a true Onam delight. Its combination of veggies provides essential vitamins and minerals, while the coconut adds healthy fats. Embrace this dish for its nutritional diversity.

 

 

 

Banana Leaf Goodness:

 

Consuming food on a banana leaf is a traditional practice during Onam. This eco-friendly practice isn't just about tradition—it's also beneficial for health. The leaf's natural antioxidants can infuse your meal with subtle health benefits.

 

 

 

Fruit Dessert Finale:

 

Round off your feast with a light and nutritious fruit dessert. Opt for ripe papaya or pineapple, both rich in digestive enzymes and vitamins. These natural sweet treats satisfy your cravings while being kind to your health.

 

 


This Onam, celebrate the spirit of the festival without compromising your health goals. Make your celebrations memorable, delicious, and health-conscious!
