There was a time when people didn’t have to go on diets to stay fit and fine overall. But the time has surely changed, and there are different types of diet plans today. In the past, the food items were healthy and free of any kind of faulty mixtures. Even the heavy stuff gets digested easily because of the daily routine people had in past times.
Surrounding also plays a vital role in how our body reacts to foods that we consume, and due to pollution and a bit disturbed lifestyle, it is not easy for people to digest things easily.
Steadily, the craze of joining Gym, fitness clubs, yoga centers, and other such activities is increasing. Now as we all know that the world is fast-paced now, people do thrive for faster results. And thus, it brings into the scene the need for diet plans. Another solidarity reason for the increasing demands and adaptability of diet plans is our food habits. From biscuits to fried snacks and from burgers to pizzas, there are so many mouth-watering food items that are not so good on the health meter.
Following the diet plans is a good thing, but at the same time, it extracts the taste from life. Well, if you are the one who is on a special diet, we have some food items that you can add to your regime for bringing back the taste of life without compromising the health and the efforts you are putting in.
Protein Bars –

And do not buy those protein bars having high amounts of added sugar, corn syrup, and unhealthy sweeteners like high fructose.
Dry Fruit Chaat –

But everyone knows that Chaat is an unhealthy item to gallop. Well, you can fulfill your chaat fantasies by replacing the ingredients with dry fruits only. Use olive oil to fry and pick the best quality cashews, almonds, pistachios, raisins, and hazelnuts to prepare your tasty yet healthy version of Chaat.
Strawberries & Blueberries –
Quick hunger pangs can pop up any time throughout the day, and when you are following a diet plan, magically the chances of getting caught by hunger pangs increases.

If you are someone who loves to have something sweet and delicious for breakfast, then you should definitely learn to bake protein mug cake. This healthy delicacy can be prepared by using healthy and clean ingredients such as protein powder, banana, egg white, and cinnamon. The ingredients can differ depending on your taste.
Dark Chocolate –
The dark and a bit sweet pleasure of dark chocolate are like a dark brown gold to adorn for charming your fitness journey. As soon as people hit dietary plans, chocolates are considered to be the must-not-have item. But you can bring the taste back in life along with an extra dose of health through a bar of dark chocolate. Minerals like iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese are what you get with every bite of dark chocolate. Not more than 30g of dark chocolate is recommended per day, and some studies suggest that eating dark chocolate five times a week lowers the risk of heart diseases.
Fruit Cake On Cheat Day –
Most of the diet plans also have cheat days, every week or every month. The cheat day is to have some fun so that you don’t get bored of your diet and your health regime. You can choose to indulge in some healthy treats even on your cheat day if you get a perfectly baked fruit cake on your plate.
Well, have these delicacies if you are a fitness freak, or you can serve any of the above to a fitness enthusiast on coming Christmas along with Christmas flower arrangements.
Health is the wealth to behold, but a tasteless diet can make it hard to walk the path for long!
