The 5 commandments of responsible indulgence
1: Follow Portion Control
We believe you can enjoy the good things in life throughout your life if you do so consciously, and in moderation. You need not deprive yourself. If you love sweets, for instance, go ahead, order mithai online and enjoy your favourite every day – but do so in small portions.
2: Check for Shelf Life
Be extra careful about checking the shelf life of the goodie you bite into. Also, when you carry home sweet boxes, ensure that you follow storage instructions carefully.
3: Don’t Skip the Exercise
To be able to enjoy the sweetness of life and stay healthy, this is a small price to pay. Just 30-45 minutes of moderate exercise every day – unless your doctor advises you otherwise. You don’t need to run a marathon to eat the piece of Mysore Pak, just walk the good walk daily, and you’re set to indulge responsibly!
4: Begin your meal with dessert
Starters-maincourse-dessert is not the healthy way to eat. As nutritionists point out, eating sweets at the beginning of a meal triggers the flow of digestive secretions which help your meal get digested. The sweets also activate your tastebuds such that you enjoy your meal more, yet when you start with dessert, you are likely to be satiated quicker and end up eating in moderation. So, it’s all win-win
5: Choose Wisely
Read labels, know the ingredients that go into your favourite sweets, the hygiene processes involved and the quality of packaging. If you do choose to carry a sweets gift box for someone you care for, let it be the best in taste and quality.
‘Responsible indulgence’ is also about choosing to explore the equally delicious and satisfying sweets which are free of regular sugar. Sweets free of sugar are also great gifts for people who have a sweet tooth, but may not be able to indulge in them due to health issues.
Here are some sweet suggestions:
Sugar Free Kaju Katli
The Anand Sweets Sugar Free Kaju Katli must be tasted to be believed! It has all the goodness of the rich sweet with no worries about piling on the sugar. The Anand Sweets Sugar Free Kaju Katli is made from the best quality, cashew nut procured in the state. Karnataka being the largest producer of the nut in the country, the cashew nuts are literally farm-to-factory, and super fresh. So, if you wish to buy kaju katli online, without the added sugar calories, you know where to click!
Protein-rich and packed with healthy fats and anti-oxidants, cashew nuts are good for young and old. The sweets come coated with silver vark and are packed in a classy blue and beige box with motifs of royal India - for Anand Sweets believes in bringing you the taste of royal India in every way.
