    hai folks, good news for diabetic sweet lovers. There is a new shop in Chennai, T.Nagar, near Vani Mahal. It is called Delizius or something like that. It is catering to the diabetic and calorie conscious people. You can get all the traditional sweets and savories, they are sugar free and cholestrol free. It is being marketed by a famous pharmachutical company. Try it out.

    Many people are nowadays affected by diabetes. Most of the people do not have the awareness about the balanced food they should consume to keep the sugar level normal. Here I am presenting some facts about the diet food that the diabetic patients should follow.
    Some people may follow some natural medicines from their kitchen shelves. Some may follow useful exercises. Please write here yr experience which causes good remedy for you. Many people will be benefited by yr experience.

    One should take a low-caloric, low fat, alkaline diet of high quality natural foods. Fruits, nuts and vegetables, whole meal bread and dairy products form a good diet for the diabetic.
    First I am writing down the diet system formed by a doctor who was honoured with the ‘Life time achievement award” by the Indian board of alternative medicines for his studies and dedication on alternative medicines.


    Breakfast: Any fresh fruit with the exception of bananas, 2 slices of whole meal bread with butter and a glass of fresh milk.
    Lunch: steamed or slightly cooked vegetables with 3 small chappathis and a glass of buttermilk.
    Mid afternoon: A glass of vegetable or fruit juice.
    Dinner: A bowl of raw vegetables, a cup of rice [any variety of rice] and a small cup of yogurt.
    Bedtime: A glass of fresh milk.


    Coffee, tea and cocoa are not recommended.
    White bread, white flour products, sugar, tinned fruits, sweets, chocolates, pastries, pies, puddings, and refined cereals should be avoided strictly.

    Cucumber contains a hormone that needed by the cells of the pancreas to produce insulin. Garlic reduces blood sugar levels. Manganese which is vital in the production of insulin is abundant in citrus fruits.

    Boil one cup of milk with 3 or 4 garlic flakes every night for 5 minutes. The cooked garlic and the milk will help to reduce Blood pressure level as well as sugar level.

    A tip for vegetable salad:
    Put 2 tomatoes, a green apple without the skin, one onion, one radish, 2 cucumbers, one carrot and a few cabbage leaves in a mixi and Chop them with a chopping blade or a slicing blade. Then mix well with a little salt and the juice of a small lime. This will be delicious to eat and you can always eat a large quantity of these vegetables.


    Bitter gourd can be given as a poriyal. Doctors are saying that they are not sure about the benefits of the bitter gourd in controlling diabetes. But fenugreek powder is a good medicine. Dry roast 100gms of fenugreek seeds with 2 tbsps of peppercorns to a light brown colour and then powder it finely. Diabetic patients can take 1 tsp of this with a cup of lukewarm water in the morning as well as in the night after food. My mother, who is now 87 years and diabetic, is taking this powder every day. You can also soak fenugreek seeds [1 tsp] in a small cup of butter milk or curd overnight and then eat it in the morning. This is a very good food as it contains fiber.

    Anyhow, diabetes can be controlled and beaten only by sheer willpower.

    Dear Mano,

    I am having borderline diabetes. Hence my diabetes is only controlled with an ayurvedic medicine called Hyponidd by Charak pharmaceuticals. As you have mentioned even I follow a strict diet and exercise. I mainly take whole grains like brown rice, chapatis and try to avoid too much of carbohydrates and sweets and also include lots of vegetables and some fruits in my diet. This keeps my sugar level to almost normal.

    I will try your salad as well as fenugreek powder. The diet system given by you is really useful. Thanks for the info, Mano. If possible, can you give some vegetarian receipes for diabetics when you get time. I had asked Chitra also and she has given me very easy and tasty receipes. I just wanted to know what your receipes are so there will be a variety.

    Regards,
    Jaya

    Dear Jaya!
    Thanks a lot for posting useful information. I regret for the delayed reply.
    Here are some recipes that are useful for the diabetic patients.
    SANDHAHAI: [WHEAT IDIYAAPPAM]
    Dry roast the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place>Punjab</st1:place> wheat grains until the colour changes lightly and a fine aroma floats on the air. When cooled, powder the grains and sieve twice. Sprinkle enough water and salt to make soft dough. Make lemon-sized balls and steam them for 15 minutes. Then press them through an idiyappam press. Mix shredded coconut and chopped coriander leaves with the idiyappam.
    CURD VERMICILLI
    Ingredients:
    Vermicilli- 1 cup
    Low fat curd- 1 cup
    Low fat boiled milk- ½ cup

    Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
    Asafotida powder- ½ tsp
    Chopped coriander leaves- 2 tbsp
    Black gram- 2 tsp
    Oil- 1 tsp
    Procedure:
    Boil the vermicelli with enough salt and then drain it through a colander. Again wash it with some cold water. Beat the curd well with the milk and enough salt. Add the cooked vermicelli and the shredded vegetables with enough salt and mix well. Heat a small kadai and pour the oil. Add the mustard seeds and when they splutter add the black gram, ginger, asafetida powder and the coriander leaves. Fry them for a few seconds and add this to the curd mixture. Mix well.

    I tried curd vermicelli!

    Hello Mrs. Mano,

    I tried curd vermicelli (though none of us are diabetic at home - touchwood!). I have had it in a birthday party dinner - they called it bahalabath(though made with vermicelli) and I always wanted to try it at home.

    That came out an excellent dish with carrots and cucumbers grated in it. Real healthy dish.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.
