Good Food For Diabetes
By Tarla Dalal
The facts are alarming. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) surveys, 50 million people in India suffer from diabetes. Which means that one in every five Indians has diabetes, and since Indians are predisposed to the disease, that figure will continue to rise!
Diabetes (high blood sugar) is a lifelong condition that needs careful management in terms of diet, medication and exercise, of which diet is an top of the list. It’s true that diabetics have to limit high-fat, high-sugar foods, but that doesn’t mean they have to abstain from their favourite dishes. What’s important is that they are careful about eating balanced meals, cooked healthily. In Good Food For Diabetes, my latest addition to the Total Health Series, I have compiled 44 diabetes-friendly recipes that can be easily worked into a daily diet.
Divided into carefully planned sections – Soups, Salads, Stir-Fries, One-Dish Meals, In-Between-Meals, Main Course and Desserts, these recipes are the result of painstaking research by my efficient team of chefs and nutritionists. We’ve taken diabetic-friendly ingredients and used them innovatively, such as fenugreek (methi) seeds in Fruity Sprouts Salad, soya bean in Nutritious Burger, bitter gourd (karela) in Masala Karela, and fibre rich apples in Hot Apple Pie with Low Fat Custard. While the salad and stir-fry recipes are loaded with nutrient and fibre-rich veggies, simple recipes for in-between-meals are ideal to help satiate the frequent hunger pangs diabetics face throughout the day. Popular desserts and accompaniments have been specially modified for diabetics, while the main course offers a selection of recipes from different cuisines that will add spice and variety to a routine diet.
The book also includes useful information such as basic facts about diabetes, making the right food choice, nutrients that help to control diabetes and top 10 natural remedies for diabetes.
If you’re a diabetic or have one in the family, you will welcome this little book. I guarantee it will surprise you!
