Time your sweets

“Timing is everything,” the nutritionist said. Make sure you eat your sweets in between your meals or about 45 minutes before your workout as a pre-workout snack.

The quality of sweets

Always choose lentil-based or milk-based sweets over refined flour sweets like biscuits or cookies, she suggested.

Choosing sweets

It is better if you can go for traditional homemade sweets. “These sweets are healthier and nutritious,” Batra said.

Festive season is the time to bond with people. Meet your friends and family and relish the quality time spent with them. Food brings people together and any celebration is incomplete without them. So, do not hold yourself back from enjoying this beautiful time. Just make conscious choices,” she said.
