Whey the healing liquid

Whey - the healing water
(another one from best out of waste series)

Milk is made of two proteins, casein and whey. Whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained like in the process of Paneer making.

Whey protein is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids.

Do not throw away this water left after making of panir i.e whey, which is rich in good quality n easily digestable proteins. It is also a good source of Thiamin, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Selenium, and a very good source of Riboflavin, Calcium and Phosphorus.

Can be added to rotis, dal, soups, khichdi, gravies for vegetables

Watch out for culinary uses of whey in the next post.....

Antiobesity day 26th day

Anti obesity day 26th November

Prevention of obesity should be directed to encourage a health centered, rather than weight-centered approach that focuses on the individual as a whole. The emphasis should be on a healthy and active lifestyle and creating a nurturing environment that helps them to recognise their own worth and respect cultural food ways.

On Anti-obesity day, let us endeavor to raise a food smart generation who will shape the destiny of India and take it towards a healthy future.

Being a healthy eating role model

Being a Healthy Eating Role Model –Anti obesity day special

Parents are role models and the most important influence in their children’s lives.

Eat the way you want your child to eat. Children learn by example
To get a sense of how your attitude might influence your children, examine your own behavior.

• Do you snack all day long?
• Do you eat in front of the TV?
• Do you eat whenever you are bored or under stress?
• Do you eat dessert at every meal?
• Do you skip breakfast?
• Do you have sodas rather than milk with your meals?
• Do you diet all the time and have a fear of food?

If you answered “yes” to more than a few of these questions, you are likely sending unhealthy messages to your child about food.

Normally when you see an overweight kid, you will most likely see an overweight parent right next to him.

It’s really sad that those kids are getting off on a bad start in life. All us parents love our kids, and will do whatever best we can for them. So why not eat healthy, lead a healthy lifestyle and have good exercise regime, rest will fall in place...... it is that simple believe me.

Give them a reason to thank u latter in life.

10-10-10 = 30 minutes exercise a day is easy.

Its practically difficult for you to take out 30-40minutes at a stretch daily for walk or any exercise and do you also think exercising in breaks of 10-10-10mins wouldn’t help much…

So here also we’re not talking about giving up 30 or 60 minutes either; all you need is 10.
Just 10?

Stop yo- yo Dieting

Stop Yo-Yo Dieting- #AntiObesityDay Campaign

Are you constantly losing weight–only to gain it back again?
You might be starting to wonder if you’d be better off just accepting your belly fats. But we promise, the perils of being overweight still outweigh the risks of yo-yoing.

So how do you quit the cycle of yo-yo dieting

Be realistic
“Make sure your diet is one you can stick with,”

No crash diets or fads that will be possible to maintain throughout your life. In fact, reconsider the whole notion of dieting as a temporary fix.

Think of what you’re doing as a permanent lifestyle shift: “This is how I eat now.”

Sprouting methi seeds

Sprouting methi seeds

As requested by many here is the procedure to sprout methi seed…..

Half cup of dry methi will yield approximately two cups of sprouted methi.

Sprouting the methi seeds is simple. Take half a cup of dry methi/fenugreek seeds. Wash well and soak in water for at least 24 to 36 hours. Drain water completely and transfer the content to a colander. Cover with wet cloth or you can tie them in a thin muslin cloth and hang  in the kitchen.

I used a wet kitchen towel. Keep it aside undisturbed. Make sure you keep the cover moist at all times. Within a day or two, you will notice small sprouts shooting out. I left it for two days until the sprouts were 1 cm long.

Remember to  wash them and drain water completely daily  else they can become slimy and give a foul smell.

Keep the sprouts in a airtight box in the refrigerator,easily stays well for a week.

Half cup of dry methi will yield approximately two cups of sprouted methi.

New Medical guidelines for blood pressure

New medical guidelines lower the threshold for high blood pressure

Hypertension is now categorized as having a blood pressure of 130/80 millimeters of mercury or higher, while normal blood pressure is categorized as a blood pressure of 120/80 millimeters of mercury.

With such lowered cut offs, many would fall in hypertensive range

The best way to control BP is by making lifestyle changes:

Stop smoking.

Lose weight or maintain healthy weight.

Increase physical activity.

Lower salt intake to less than 2g per day.

Reduce intake of processed, ready to eat foods

Limit caffeine.

Limit alcohol.

Reduce stress, meditate 15mins a day

Here’s why blood pressure matters so much: as we age, it tends to rise and slowly damage blood vessels, increasing risks for heart attack, stroke, kidney damage and other health problems. “It doesn’t mean you need medication, but it’s a yellow light that you need to start working on your blood pressure."

The guidelines “have the potential of improving the health of millions.”

Quick diet tips for diabetes

Quick diet tips for diabetics.

While there is no ‘diabetes diet’ per se, there are lots of food items that are considered good for diabetics. In fact it would do non-diabetics a world of good to follow these diet rules as well. So here are a few quick tips

Diabetics need to understand  that it’s not just what they eat but what time they eat it. It’s very important to space out meals. Instead of large meals, people should eat five small meals a day.

Another very important thing is to consume enough carbohydrates. Carbs in fact are very important for diabetics because it gives them control over their blood sugar levels. Most diabetics should eat complex carbs like whole grains- jowar, bajra, jav, brown rice because along with providing enough energy they don’t increase people’s blood sugar levels.

Also know the right method of eating certain foods like a diabetic can eat rice in the form of pulav or briyani wherein lots of vegetables and pulses are added. Similarly oats and soya flour can be added to idli/dosa batter to improve on fibre and proteins.

Intake of fruits ensures good supply of antioxidants and fibre, however fruits should be had as a meal by itself and never combine with main meals like breakfast, dinner.

Adopt healthier cooking methods like baking, grilling, boiling, roasting.

Avoid excessive use of artificial sweeteners.

Use skimmed milk, sprouts, egg white, chicken without skin, fish.

Have fats from healthy sources like walnuts, almonds, flaxseeds.

Overweight diabetics need a dietary regime which allows weight loss

Good exercise helps keep their blood sugar levels in check.

Living with diabetes is not hard, some exercise, medications and a proper diet can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day takes place on November 14, and the theme this year is ‘Women and Diabetes – our right to a healthy future’. There are currently over 199 million women living with diabetes. This total is expected to increase to 313 million by 2040.

ARE our unhealthy lifestyles making us more prone to developing type 2 diabetes? The answer seems to be an unequivocal yes.

Check if you are at risk
Some of the risk factors for developing diabetes includes:

Being aged 35 or over
Being overweight (especially if you carry most of your weight around your middle)
Having a family history of diabetes
Having given birth to a baby that weighed over 4kg at birth, or have had gestational diabetes during pregnancy
Having high cholesterol or other fats in the blood
Having high blood pressure or heart disease

If you have any of the above conditions you are at risk.

The good news is that up to 70% of cases of type 2 diabetes can be prevented through the adoption of a healthy lifestyle.

Karela and diabetes

Karela (Bitter gourd) and diabetes

Karela or Bitter gourd or bitter melon is a vegetable that is hated by most of us because of its bitter taste, right. ..the bitter taste is generally attributed to the quinine it contains.

Bitter gourd has phenolic compounds that reduce glucose release during carbohydrate digestion. Thus, it has a hypoglycemic effect and is good for diabetes.

It is also known that bitter melon contains a lectin that reduces blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and suppressing appetite - similar to the effects of insulin in the brain.

This lectin is thought to be a major factor behind the hypoglycemic effect that develops after eating bitter melon.

It also contains a chemical called Charantin, which is known to reduce high blood glucose levels.

Does eating too much sweets cause diabetes


Does eating too much sweets cause diabetes.

Research has found that a high-sugar diet certainly increases diabetes risk — adding just one serving of a sweetened beverage each day to your diet ups risk by 15 percent, a study at the Harvard School of Public Health found — but sugar alone isn’t necessarily enough to cause the disease on its own. Excess calories that come from both carbohydrates and fats also contribute to the development of diabetes.

The tendency to get type 2 diabetes is mostly inherited. That means it’s linked to the genes people get from their parents. Still, eating too much sugar (or foods with sugar, like candy or regular soda) can cause weight gain, and weight gain can increase a person’s risk for developing the disease.

Also People who exercise fewer than three times a week are at risk.

The bottom is when assessing your risk for diabetes don’t avoid any food groups but yes limit the source of simple sugars and fats.

Over weight and diabetes - DIABESITY

How being overweight is harmful for diabetes…Diabesity

With World Diabetes Day around the corner……………14th november….i thought of penning down about Diabesity (diabetes + obesity)
Being diabetic and also being over weight, it makes your body ‘resistant’ to insulin, so you need more insulin that you would if you were an ideal weight. As insulin shortage is the main cause of diabetes, this becomes a real problem; you become even more short of insulin.

Secondly, some fat is deposited in the pancreatic cells that make the insulin, the beta type of islet cells. Some researchers have found that this fat damages these cells, which stop making as much insulin.
In type 2 diabetes muscles need more insulin than normal: this is due to resistance to insulin caused by large amounts of fat and lack of exercise. For example, 110kg person needs more insulin that a 70kg person. So if your pancreas, the gland which makes the insulin, is running out of insulin, it may have enough insulin for a 70kg person. But if you were 40kg heavier, you would not have enough insulin for the extra weight, so you would be diabetic.

Experts say that losing just 5% to 10% of your total weight can help you lower your blood sugar considerably, as well as lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It’s not too late to make a positive change, even if you’ve already developed diabetes.
The bottom line is that by losing extra weight you have more control over your health than you think, it makes diabetes easier to control.

Rice and diabetes

Scientists have found that the glycemic index (GI) of rice varies a lot from one type of rice to another. And they have revealed that rice varieties such as India’s most widely grown rice variety, Swarna and Mahsuri have a low GI and are safe for diabetics.

A diabetes meal plan can definitely include rice – in fact, it’s part of the grain food group, which makes up a large part of a balanced meal plan.

The biggest take home message is PORTION SIZE.  Adults only need a cup cooked rice per serve. Eating rice with other foods can help reduce the overall GI of a meal.

But what is important is the balance between food intake and physical activity. Globally, we are getting fatter, and this puts pressure on our organs. So we need to keep our weight in check by combining low GI foods, sensible eating and being physically active is essential.

Fenugreek (methi) and diabetes

Fenugreek aids carbohydrate metabolism and helps regulate blood sugar levels after meals. Fenugreek contains a specialized  type of soluble fiber Galactomannan that slows the absorption of glucose in the intestines and reduces the amount of fat that is absorbed.

Fenugreek also contains amino acid responsible for inducing the production of insulin.

Generally people have misconceptions that consuming fenugreek leaves in vegetable form too would lower their sugar level, however, this is not the case, fenugreek seeds taken orally or in powdered form, stuffed in roti or after soaking them overnight proves effective for diabetic patients.

Consuming just 5gm-10gm fenugreek, a day, in any form, helps in reducing the blood sugar level effectively.

Waist size can determine diabetes risk

Waist Size Alone May Predict Diabetes Risk

New research finds that
“Waist Size Alone May Predict Diabetes Risk – Even If You’re Not Obese”.

A study found that some overweight men and women with very large waists have the same risk of diabetes as obese people.

A large waist is 35 inches or more in a woman and 40 inches or more in a man.

“This further confirms that it is important to avoid carrying extra fat, particularly so around the abdominal region,”. Fat hampers the body’s ability to respond to insulin.

So gear up…..start exercising and eating right………

Vitamin D Day 2nd November

November 2nd is Vitamin D Day!

Vitamin D Day is a day to recognize vitamin D deficiency as a world problem.

Researchers agree that at least one third of the world is deficient in vitamin D, and some scientists even think a greater percent of people are deficient in vitamin D.

Why are so many people deficient, to know more visit

Or also on my android app "shilpsnutrilife"

#vitaminD #sunlight #eathealthy #exercise

you might ask? It’s simple really. We get vitamin D from sun exposure. And now, more than ever, the world’s population lives an indoor lifestyle, avoiding the sun daily. Doctors are beginning to discover that vitamin D deficiency is a risk factor for many diseases, including heart disease and cancer.

“Vitamin D deficiency is a global pandemic that has serious health consequences for children and adults. Improvement in the world’s vitamin D status could significantly reduce risk of many chronic illnesses including cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes and many deadly cancers as well as infectious diseases including upper respiratory tract infections, influenza and tuberculosis.”

If you expect sunshine to provide you with vitamin D, then you’d better make sure that the sun is high enough in the sky, because when the sun is low on the horizon it cannot help skin make vitamin D.

Learn, educate and participate; let’s get the word out!
So go grab the sunshine vitamin and up your vitamin D levels.

World Vegan day

November 1st is world vegan day
Lets have a look at the benefits of eating vegetarian diet
It’s a healthy choice
A balanced vegan diet (also referred to as a ‘plant-based diet’) meets many current healthy eating recommendations such as eating more fruit, vegetables and wholegrains and consuming less cholesterol and saturated fat. Balanced vegan diets are often rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fibre, that can decrease the chances of suffering from diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Well-planned plant-based diets are suitable for all age groups and stages of life.

It’s better for the environment
Switching to a plant-based diet is an effective way for an individual to reduce their eco-footprint. Vegan diets can produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than meat-based diets.

Plant-based diets only require around one third of the land and water needed to produce a typical Western diet.

Choosing to live a life free from animal products means choosing a path that is kinder to people, animals and the environment.
