4. Looking for a special menu for a wedding? Nothing is more special

than nutrition!

Well, although it would depend upon your budget, you can still have a portion of healthier soups, protein based salads including sprouts.

Instead of fried farsan, you may keep barbeque stew, roasted, baked or grilled foods.

Well, keep room for traditional puri, sabzi and chaat as well; afterall shaadi ka function hai!

5. Heartburns & Acidity are common in weddings, what are the remedies?

Well, first decode the main causes of it which are - indigestion, change in sleep schedule, excess consumption of chai coffee especially on wrong timing! Here are some easy tips for acidity treatment at home-

  • Don't start or end your day with tea/coffees/spiced water

  • Soak 5 black raisins overnight & eat those in the morning.

  • Have half to 1 banana depending upon your tolerance

  • If it is a 4pm burn, drink a glass of gulkand water or saunf and khadi shakkar ka paani for instant relief from acidity.

6. Do you face bloating issues?

Ankita Vaidya Special Tip - Reduce bloating naturally

Post meal practice - Have a spoon of ghee with dry ginger powder & a piece of jaggery.

7. Period time food to ease menstruation pain

Firstly, there is no particular food that regulates your menstrual cycle. But if you are expecting your period and want them to come on time, here is what you can try-

  • Have these heating foods- pineapple or raw papaya.

  • You can also start having a glass of cinnamon water.

  • Importantly don’t follow what your friend did! Every body is different, so consult your gynae for appropriate advice.

8. Herbal nuskas for pimple solution at home

It's okay to have acne, just don't let it aggravate. Here is how you can reduce acne-

  • Have 2 spoons of shatavari syrup in a glass of warm water, post meals.

  • Consume Triphala, 1 tab or a spoon of powder every night with warm water

9. How to remove dark circles at home is a common question

Cliched but most effective- sleep on time! But kya karein ghar me shaadi hai toh late nights hai! So here is how to remove dark circles at home naturally -

  • Apply harad paste under your eye just before 10-15 mins of going to sleep

  • Use cold tea bags, place them on your eyes for some time

  • Refrigerate an empty spoon for 10 mins, then use it to tap clockwise-anticlockwise over your eyes

  • Take some rose water on cotton pads, soak, squeeze and tap

10. Last but not the least, foods to manage marriage stress

Primarily there should be JOY & not stress! But Khair, shaadi ke ghar mein mithai aur stress, unlimited! Here is a way out-

  • Have 1 saucer of milk + nutmeg powder with a pinch of kesar & 2 crushed cashews; that’s it!

  • Chamomile tea can be of great help as it calms your nerves

Pro Tip

Sip lightly!

It is your Day, so don’t hold yourself back from enjoying a few drinks with the guests. Only keep a track of how much you are drinking and your tolerance.

Wait! Heard about post-wedding nutrition? Here is a quick takeaway-

  • Don't get obsessed with the weight

  • Go slow, don’t be hard on yourself

  • Come back to your routine

  • Keep your meal timings right

  • Use right ways of eating

  • Don't overdo (eating/exercising)

  • Avoid jumping on detox diets

A goodbye thought -

Rome wasn’t built in a day; it’s not a matter of eating right one day prior to your wedding. Start on time, start early. Give yourself athletes a couple of months to incorporate healthy eating habits for maximum results. Follow a nutritious plan for pre-wedding fitness which will naturally facilitate a healthy body during your final D-Day!
