In just two days, the arrival of the month of Syawal will arrive at our doorstep. This means endless invitations to open houses with various selections of delightful dishes, cookies and drinks. When attending these open houses, the host surely will serve a variety of savory and scrumptious food such as beef or chicken rendang, lemang, serunding, lontong and other home-cooked delicacies that will entice anyone to over indulge. Having said that, an occasion like this is hard to avoid as Malaysian love eating foods that are high in sodium, sugar and fat.
While Malaysians enjoy these mouthwatering delicacies to feast upon once a year during this season, they should eat normally and not go overboard. Even during Hari Raya, Malaysians can opt for a balanced dieting by eating in moderation and being selective while consuming a wide variety of food. By that, according to Kevin Zahri who is a Malaysian fitness guru, eat moderately and take cautious of the calories intake of the foods so that Malaysians can still relish on Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.
