Low Carb Upma - Upgrade My Food

Low Carb Upma - Upgrade My Food

A low carb upma made with riced cauliflower is a possible option for diabetics looking to count carbs in their meal. What is the one complaint people often have of traditional Upma It is too carb heavy, right? I have 2 ideas for you to upgrade your traditional upma. 1) Add cauliflower rice to bulk up the carb The paleo diet started this clever trend. If you process cauliflower in your food processor, and pulse it to a rice consistency; you can use it as a grain substitute. If you compare 1 cauliflower to 1 cup cooked semolina: Calories: Cauliflower 146vs Semolina 601 Carbs: Cauliflower 29 g vs Semolina 122 g In each instance cauliflower is almost 1/4 the amount of calories and carbs compared to rava. Taste As far as taste is concerned, my daughters could not tell that there was cauliflower in-between. The cauliflower neither has any additional flavor nor does it take away any flavor from the grain. So, if you are a diabetic and looking for a way to consume traditional dishes without the sugar rise from refined grains, then this is a great option. Note You can make the cauliflower rice portion in bulk and store it in an airtight container in your refrigerator. You could then use it to bulk up not just upma, but also fried rice, lemon rice, etc. 2) Use whole wheat couscous instead of rava The whole wheat couscous I get from Trader Joes gives me hot, fluffy cooked grain in 5 minutes by just adding hot water. I can avoid the traditional step of roasting and cooking the semolina as per traditional method. It is already parboiled in the factory. So, it takes only few minutes to cook. But, being whole wheat, it is par boiled with its bran and germ intact, it has higher fiber (21 g for one cup vs 7g) than rava. The protein content for both remain the same. So, whole wheat cous Continue reading >>

7 Easy Breakfast Ideas For Type 2 Diabetes

7 Easy Breakfast Ideas For Type 2 Diabetes

Cooking with less fat by using nonstick pans and cooking sprays and avoiding fat- and sugar-laden coffee drinks will help ensure that you're eating a healthy breakfast. For many people, breakfast is the most neglected meal of the day. But if you have type 2 diabetes, breakfast is a must, and it can have real benefits. “The body really needs the nutrients that breakfast provides to literally ‘break the fast’ that results during sleeping hours,” says Kelly Kennedy, MS, RD, an Everyday Health dietitian. “Having a source of healthy carbohydrates along with protein and fiber is the perfect way to start the morning.” Eating foods at breakfast that have a low glycemic index may help prevent a spike in blood sugar all morning long — and even after lunch. Eating peanut butter or almond butter at breakfast, for example, will keep you feeling full, thanks to the combination of protein and fat, according to the American Diabetes Association. And a good breakfast helps kick-start your morning metabolism and keeps your energy up throughout the day. Pressed for time? You don't have to create an elaborate spread. Here are seven diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas to help you stay healthy and get on with your day. 1. Breakfast Shake For a meal in a minute, blend one cup of fat-free milk or plain nonfat yogurt with one-half cup of fruit, such as strawberries, bananas, or blueberries. Add one teaspoon of wheat germ, a teaspoon of nuts, and ice and blend for a tasty, filling, and healthy breakfast. Time saver: Measure everything out the night before. 2. Muffin Parfait Halve a whole grain or other high-fiber muffin (aim for one with 30 grams of carbohydrates and at least 3 grams of fiber), cover with berries, and top with a dollop of low- or nonfat yogurt for a fast and easy bre Continue reading >>

Breakfast Burrito- Diabetes Friendly Thursdays

Breakfast Burrito- Diabetes Friendly Thursdays

Save this picture if you would like to participate in DFT events. Blog DFT specific posts with this picture and link placed in the beginning of your post. My friend and a fellow blogger Sonal from Simplyvegetarian777 has started “Diabetes Friendly Thursdays” where she bring diabetic friendly recipes for her readers. This post is for this week’s breakfast theme where I am bringing Breakfast Burrito, which is easy, simple and delicious without compromising on the taste. As per the experts, diabetics can eat carbohydrates but they have to choose the right type of carbs. When choosing carbohydrates, it’s best to choose complex carbohydrates that are rich in fiber and low in sugar. Its better to choose whole grains because fiber found in whole grains reduces the speed at which the blood sugar rises as compared to refined. Also diabetics should include high fiber and protein to their diet which gives them a balanced meal. So today my Breakfast Burrito is made with whole wheat tortilla along with egg white omelette with a little desi twist. Fiber comes from whole wheat tortilla/roti, and egg whites cover the protein part. Ingredients: 2 egg whites 1/4 small red onion, chopped 4-5 fresh spinach leaves, chopped 1 green chili, chopped small piece of red & green bell pepper, chopped cilantro chopped salt to taste black pepper to taste salsa (used store bought) 1 tsp olive oil or cooking spray cheese of your choice ( mexican or monteray jack) For the tortilla: whole wheat flour, kneaded Directions: Separate egg whites in a bowl. Add all the chopped veggies along with salt and pepper. Whisk it well so that everything is mixed well. Heat the pan and a flat griddle for the tortilla. Take some dough and roll between the palms and make a ball about the size of golf ball. Using a Continue reading >>

Diet, Low-carb, And Healthy Pani Puri

Diet, Low-carb, And Healthy Pani Puri

Pani puri doesn’t need an introduction. This famous street food has many names in every region of India. While some enjoy this tangy, spicy, sweet and salty pani puri occasionally, there are many (just like me) who don’t need an occasion to enjoy this dish. Well, although I avoid the traditional ones, I can eat my healthy panipuri for lunch, snacks and dinner. And with this super healthy panipuri recipe, I don’t worry much about my caloric goals or dietary needs. Well, the dish itself is very complex considering the amount of ingredients goes in preparing one. What makes this dish so popular and palatable is its complexity of flavors, diverse texture and an assortment of flavors that bursts in your mouth each time you take a bite. Spice lovers always enjoy this dish without any sweet chutney. However, it’s your personal preference to add the sweet chutney or enjoy this famous Indian snack as it is. If you have read my first post, then you must know that I had gestational diabetes during my first pregnancy. Pani puri was a strict no-no in my diet back then. That’s because the dish is carb rich and loaded with unwanted calories that a diabetic person may not be able to digest while keeping his/her blood sugar levels sane. Keeping that in mind, I came up with this simple, yet satisfying healthy panipuri recipe that ditches the fried, carb-rich puris and high-glycemic potatoes. Calories and nutrition of Healthy Panipuri: A Regular serving of pani puri (6 puris) is close to 480 calories, which include the calories from potato stuffing, fried puris and other ingredients used. The carb in a single serving of pani puri exceeds 50g, which include minimal dietary fiber and loads of calories from fat. Unlike the traditional pani puri, this healthy panipuri has only 220 c Continue reading >>

Low-carb Indian Vegetable Samosas

Low-carb Indian Vegetable Samosas

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter. When butter has melted and stopped foaming, add the cauliflower and onions. Sprinkle the salt over the vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the edges have started to brown and the vegetables are cooked through. Stir in ginger root, coriander, garam masala, ground cumin, cumin seeds, and chili flakes. Stir for 1-2 minutes to allow the spices to toast. Turn off the heat. Stir in the cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add salt to taste. Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit. Have a rolling pin, 2 pieces of parchment, and a baking sheet available. Set up a double boiler. I use a large sauce pan with about 1 1/2-2 inches of water in it and a medium mixing bowl that fits on top. Bring the water in the lower part of the double boiler to a simmer over high heat. Once it is simmering, turn heat to low. Meanwhile, place the almond flour, cumin, salt, and mozzarella in the top part of the double boiler. Stir together. Place the bowl containing the almond flour mixture over the simmering water. Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot bowl or with steam escaping. I use a silicone mitten to hold the bowl. Stirring the mixture constantly, heat until the mozzarella cheese melts and the mixture forms a dough. Turn the dough out onto one of the pieces of parchment and knead a few times to equally distribute the ingredients. Shape the dough into a thick rectangle and cover with the second sheet of parchment. Roll dough into a rectangle about 8 inches wide by 16 inches long. Cut the dough rectangle in half lengthwise, then in half cross-wise. Then cut each of the four sections in half crosswise to form 8 four inch squares. Spoon the filling onto the center of each square, dividing it equally among the squares. Fold the squar Continue reading >>

Understanding Mesothelioma Cancer

Understanding Mesothelioma Cancer

I get the following question a lot so I thought it would be ideal to make it the highlight of this article.What is mesothelioma? Mesothelioma (also known to be called malignant mesothelioma) is a fairly rare form of cancer that affects the mesothelium. Mesothelium… mesothelioma… you see the connection. The mesothelium is the thin tissue layer that lines (covers) most internal organs. Mesothelioma can be very aggressive and deadly in its attacks, and although treatments are available for its early stages, progression into more chronic stages will result in certain death. Types of Mesothelioma There are different types of mesothelioma based on the particular organ affected. The common types are pleural mesothelioma (which affects the lungs), peritoneal mesothelioma (which affects the abdomen), pericardial mesothelioma (which affects the heart), and less frequently, testicular mesothelioma (which affects the lining of testicles). The most common form of mesothelioma is that of the lungs (pleural mesothelioma), while the peritoneal,pericardial, and testicular forms are rare. Mesothelioma Causes Medical research has shown that mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos are a group of naturally occurring minerals that have been recognized for their strength and fire resistance. Its fire retardant qualities made the use of asbestos common in products such as roofing materials, cements and even fabric. Over the past few decades however, its use has greatly declined in the manufacturing of these products since it has been implicated as the principal culprit causing mesothelioma. Prolonged exposure to asbestos is known to greatly increase the risk of contracting the disease. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 2000 people are Continue reading >>
