Diwali 2020 is just around the corner and the festive cheer is for all to see. India is often dubbed as the land of festivals, and the festival of lights surely tops as one of the most significant & widely celebrated festivals in the country. It is a festive occasion where people can indulge in guilt-free sweets. Not just that, everyone you will meet is in high spirits and is joyous because of the positive vibes this festival brings with itself. 

In India, festivals act as a force uniting people of different backgrounds and Diwali is the epitome of this example as people exchange gifts and foods. Sweets are the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind when talking about Diwali, and it is one of the best ways to connect with a person of a different culture or background as everyone loves them some yummy treats. 

Here is a list of 5 Diwali healthy gifts that you can offer to your loved ones without thinking twice: 

Dry, Fruits and Nuts- When you fill-up your gift hamper with dry fruits and nuts, you just load it with the greatest gift of them all: Health. Be it cashews, pitted prunes, raisins, dried apples, dates, almonds, dried apricots, walnuts, peaches, raisins, pistachios / pista, macadamias, or Brazilian nuts, you can’t go wrong with this idea. Dry fruits tend to be an excellent source of vitamins, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and proteins, whereas nuts supply us with generous doses of fiber, protein and unsaturated fat (essential fatty acids). A super healthy Diwali gift that makes so much more sense than desserts, candies and sweets that come attached with the doctor’s frown.  

Boost immunity with Zama Organics hampers: This year’s Diwali hampers are specially curated with the favourite organic picks to help boost immunity, healing and cleansing. From a special in-house immunity Latte blend to a variety of organic teas, it’s the perfect gift for your loved ones, clients and friends to stay healthy and happy this festive season. Zama Organics hampers are available in three different sizes, small to medium to large. The hamper highlights include: Immunity Latte Mix, Thai Trail Mix, Dhoop Sticks, Organic Teas, and Pink Salt Crystals. You can order the hampers from their website: https://www.zamaorganics.com/  

Exotic & Winter Fruits- There are few healthier bites on this planet than fruits. Laden with vitamins (Vitamin C is found abundantly in several fruits), fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and Folic Acid, they bestow a world of benefits upon individuals of all ages. People who eat fruits regularly are healthier, able to keep their weight in check, and known to be at less risk of diseases than others. Go ahead and mix up your gift hamper with both seasonal fruits (pineapple, strawberry, apple, orange, banana, dried peach, apricot, honeydew, prune, melon) and exotic fruits hampers which are readily available nowadays (Dragon fruit, Phalsa, Rambutan, Ambarella / Indian Hog Plum, Camachile / KodukkapuliTargola, Langsat, Japani-Phal / Persimmon and Mangosteen).  

Protein Bar-Fi by The Whole Truth- Diwali, the biggest Indian festival. And perhaps the world’s biggest celebration of good over evil. If there’s one food item that’s symbolic of this festival, it’s the humble Barfi. Not just any Barfi, but Barfi topped with Chandi (Silver) Varak. The Whole Truth introduced Protein Bar-Fis for consumers, a 100% natural, 100% clean, and 100% veg, ethical Diwali barfi. Each Bar-Fi is actually a mini protein bar, filled with dry fruits like cashews, almonds, dates & berries (all-natural, no added sugar). It is as tasty as any other local barfi. They even do the job of Kaju Katli since more than 40% of these Bar-Fis are just cashews. So, go ahead, let yourself and your loved ones indulge with your conscience at ease. And it makes for a great gifting option letting you and your dear ones continue the sweet tradition in a healthier way minus the worries of bulging love handles. Consumers have two options to choose from – one of 16 Bar-Fis and the other with 10 Bar-Fis. Each also comes with scented candles.  

Tea Hampers- Take a good look at your cuppa. If it’s tea, you’re in luck. The advantages of this flavourful fluid go well beyond providing refreshment. Antioxidants and Phytochemicals present in tea leaves hold serious health benefits. Be it green, black, white or oolong, trust your cup of tea to boost endurance & immunity, manage body weight, strengthen bones & teeth, stave off chances of stroke and help fight ailments like diabetes, heart disease, degenerative conditions and even cancer. Looking for a healthy Diwali gift? A tea hamper should rank high on your list. Vahdam teas are all the rage right now so seems like a great idea to gift your near and dear ones a hamper from them.
