Diabetes is a condition in which there is high sugar (glucose) level in the blood. The glucose comes from the food we eat. A hormone insulin produced by the pancreas is responsible for absorbing the glucose into our body cells. Diabetes can be caused by the pancreas not producing enough insulin (Type I) or due to insulin resistance (Type II) i.e. the body cells do not respond to the insulin produced.Diabetes causes frequent urination and increased hunger. A diabetic diet must include food with low glycemic index (GI). GI is an indication of how much the blood sugar level will rise when we eat something. Foods with low GI include fruits, vegetables,beans, oats and other whole grains. These are food which are high in vitamins and fiber content. If you have diabetes, try to restrict your diet to 1500-1800 calories in a day. Moderation is the key - eat everything in moderate quantities. Try to include lots of vegetables into your meal in order to increase the fiber content. For eg. : Try to use whole grain noodles or pastas, use brown rice to make all variety rice dishes and try to include lots of millets in your diet. In addition, try to include as many vegetables or sprouts as possible in the dish to increase the fiber content. Fruits are high in fiber too. However some fruits like mango, banana, grapes etc contain high sugar level. So consume these fruits in small portions. Our Indian diet is dominated by carbohydrates. As much as possible try to include more protein into your diet and reduce the carbohydrate intake. Also, try to expose your body to sunlight everyday and drink plenty of water. The Vitamin D that you get from sunlight is essential for a healthy life. Water helps in reducing the risk of many of the ailments related to diabetes.

Garden Fresh Vegetable Soup

Garden Fresh Vegetable Soup

Last week, when the thermometer on our deck registered 90°F, I craved soup. It didn’t make any sense, but I wanted a warm tomato-based soup loaded with vegetables. The fact that I needed to use up some farmers’ market finds that were just a tiny bit past their prime was only a bonus. The recipe below is a specific instance of a more general soup-making technique: Sauté aromatic vegetables like onions, garlic and celery in olive oil. Add seasonings like salt and pepper. Add crushed tomatoes and vegetable or chicken stock. Add firm vegetables such as carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and/or root vegetables. Add softer vegetables such as yellow squash, zucchini, bell peppers, string beans and leafy greens. Garnish with fresh herbs. I’m trying to stay away from starchy vegetables and beans at the moment, but feel free to throw in peas, corn or drained and rinsed canned beans when you add the softer vegetables. I like my vegetables to be on the crunchy side; if you prefer yours to be softer, cook each stage for 5 or 10 minutes more than indicated below. You really can’t screw up this recipe. The result will be a delicious, nutritious, satisfying bowl of soup. Even if it’s ridiculously hot outside. Continue reading >>
