Binge eating at weddings can make your digestive system cry out for help! Have these top three foods recommended by celeb nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar.
Say hello to the shaadi season! After all, this is the time of the year when you get dressed in your finest clothes, put on that stunning makeup, and turn heads around. And how can weddings be complete without all the delicious food – the chaat papdi and golgappas, dal makhani and naan, and the jalebis and malpuas. Yum! We are sure you are salivating, aren’t you? Of course, eating all this gives us so much joy, but how about our poor digestive system? The constant hogging can leave it a little high and dry. But fret not, as always, we have the perfect solution for you, courtesy celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar.
In her recent Instagram post, Diwekar has shared three foods that will help your digestive system during the shaadi season. The nutritionist, who is known for her holistic approach, always suggests the simplest kitchen ingredients, but they all make a great difference!

So let’s not waste any more time and get straight to the point!
Here are the top 3 foods recommended to keep digestion in check during wedding season
1. Methi laddoo made with jaggery, ghee and dry ginger:
This is one of the best combinations that will work its magic on your gut! It will prevent stomach cramps and constipation, promote intestinal mucosa and even help keep your hair lustrous, which can otherwise look frizzy due to a poor-functioning stomach.
Pro tip: Have it either at breakfast or as a snack between 4-6 pm. It will help if you are out of routine with your sleep and missing workouts. Last but not the least, it helps with blood sugar regulation too. It’s a win-win!
2. Glass of chaas with hing and kala namak:
This is a drink that you MUST consume post lunch! Diwekar says that while the chaas or buttermilk is both a good source of probiotics and vitamin B12, the hing and kala namak combo will help cut down bloating, gas and even prevent irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This will keep your digestive health in check.
Pro tip: Do it, especially if you are attending evening functions and want to sport a flat stomach.

3. A teaspoon of chyawanprash:
We’ve always turned to chyawanprash, ever since we were kids, right? Have a teaspoonful at bedtime to keep your immune and digestive system strong. It is a solid source of flavonoids and antioxidants, and will ensure that your skin stays supple and soft, even through the ongoing wedding festivities.
Pro tip: If late night shaadis are a routine, and especially if you are at destination weddings.
So follow all these tips, and make your digestive system shaadi-ready too!
