One of India’s biggest festivals is finally here. Navratri begins today and will continue till October 25. People celebrate this grand festival with great pomp and show all over the country. From preparing delish dishes to wearing new clothes and enjoying Garba to keeping a fast, people celebrate the festival in several different ways. If you have planned to keep a 9-day-fast this Navratri, here are some tips for you.

Pick healthy vrat items

Navratri brings along with itself an opportunity to fast and worship the supreme Goddess Durga. If you fast during the entire duration of Navratri, make sure you are feeding yourself healthy food items. Eat fruits, makhana, kuttu dosa, samak rice and baked potatoes. Avoid deep fried snacks or sugar loaded sweets, as such food items will only add to your waistline and provide no health benefit.
