Feasting on fast meals

by Marie Rodriguez

What a horrid shock the weighing scales have given me this morning! After a complete week of Navratra fasting, I concept I’d have lost as a minimum 10 kg. Instead, the stupid system is showing that I’ve won 5 kg. Aap batao, how can that be? For seven days, I haven’t positioned an unmarried grain in my mouth — no rice, no chapatti, and adhered to all of the fasting regulations. I imply, look at the emaciated bodies of the wandering, fasting ascetics and study my body. Basically, we’ve been thru the equal rigors, haven’t we? Then why the distinction? Is this a curse of Mahishasura?

Hey Mata Rani! Tera hello aasra!


What have I eaten after all? I would start the day with a tumbler of milk to reinforce myself with a complete day of fasting. Then I might have some fruit. After which it’d be either saboodana khichdi loaded with fried peanuts and fried potatoes (totally vegan, so can’t be fattening) or a kuttu ke atte ka parantha stuffed with paneer and fried in desi ghee, with a dollop of butter on top. Kuttu ka atta is a chunk dry, you spot, so you ought to lubricate it with wholesome fat. The operative word being ‘wholesome’ and anyone knows that ghee and butter are healthier than delicate oil. I could have a pitcher of thick saffron lassi to finish my breakfast. Sweet, obviously! Sweet offers an electricity kick that’s so important for someone on a protracted speedy.

Snacks mein you possibly can’t have the ordinary namkeens or sandwiches or desserts if one is extreme about the short. So, I had purchased many packets of potato chips, laccha also, til our ke laddoo. I also fried 1 kg Kaju and 1 kg badam and acquired raisins and dates to help me via the days of abstinence. And fruits to chain hi, thank god!
For lunch, I could make a few paneers with share ke atte ki pooris and mango lassi. I especially learned how to make almond halwa for this speedy. So, I might make both that or coconut laddoo or saboodana ki kheer for dessert. Tea time pe it became either aloo cutlets or fried shakarkandi chaat. You can’t even consume ordinary greens ordeals. Garlic and onions to bow out for those 9 days. I fail to understand that with such obstacles on meals, how can all people in all likelihood put on weight?

For dinner, we would go out to one-of-a-kind eating places serving Navratra thalis. We even located that some pizza stores were providing vrat wala pizzas and attempted them out. The base crafted from singhara atta didn’t flavor exquisite, however, coke helped down it. Once I made vrat ke chawal ka pulao to which I introduced masses of fried nuts, and yes, those everlasting fried aloos. It was followed by using share ke atte ka halwa for dessert. Everyone appreciated it.

But I’m nevertheless thinking approximately the unresolvable thriller of weight benefit. I assume I’d higher have my thyroid checked. It’s were given to be a thyroid malfunction. There’s no other logical clarification.
