Running into the 10kb limit with jekyll-algolia plugin

Using the plugin and running into the 10kb limit, and it says

The plugin will create one record for each element matching your
nodes_to_index value (currently set to “p”).
Each record should not weight more than 10 Kb.
One of your records weights 13.62 Kb and has been rejected.

Most probable keys causing the issue:
excerpt_html (3.28 Kb), html (3.28 Kb), excerpt_text (3.22 Kb)

Both of those 3 keys pretty much have the same text. When using the plugin is there any advice on how to restructure to avoid this limit? For example if we want to ignore the html since it contains only formatting and nothing textually important can we remove it from the index?
