Nutritionist Dhvani Shah Shares 2 Healthy & Light Diwali Recipes That You Must Make Today!

This week is full of fun and excitement for everyone in India. Diwali, the Festival of Lights is the biggest festival in our country. As you know, any festival involves loads of eating and entertaining. Most of us love indulging during this time. But there's a tiny voice in our heads that keeps saying - "Go easy, it's calorie loaded"

So this Diwali, we got together with Naturopathic Nutritionist Dhvani Shah and she showed us two recipes which are healthy and super tasty - you won't have to feel guilty about eating more than one. The first recipe is a low-carb Cheesecake in a Glass (without any cheese) and the other recipe is a Vegan Cracker - you can serve it as a party snack or just munch on it when the hunger pangs hit.
