5 Foods You Can Still Eat While Fasting

Chaitra Navratri is a 9-day long Hindu festival celebrated every year around this time. This year, the festival is being celebrated from March 28th 2017 and will end with Ram Navami on April 5th 2017. During these 9 days, Goddess Durga and her 9 forms are celebrated by devotees across the country. Each day is dedicated to one form and offerings are made accordingly. For example, on Day 5 or Panchami, Goddess Skandmata is worshiped. She is seen carrying little Kartikeya in her lap, hence the name Skandmata. A bhog of bananas is offered on Panchami among other foods.

All those who are fasting enjoy these 9 days as a time to pray, meditate and reconnect with their spirituality. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the air and devotees throng to temples to offer prayers and seek divine blessings. The fasting rules of these 9 days allow people to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Grains and cereals are avoided. Strictly vegetarian meals are prepared without any garlic or onions and people steer clear of alcoholic drinks. However, fasting does not mean you have to eat the same food every single day. No need to stick to Kuttu-ki-Poori, Aloo Sabzi and Sabudana Khichdi every day. Here’s a reminder of all the food items you can still eat when fasting.
