RED FLAG #1:Ready to Nap Right After a Big Meal?This is a normal response to an influx of carbs (think of that post-Thanksgiving dinner feeling). A diet that's high in simple carbs like sugar, white flour, and sweet beverages -- especially when consumed in large quantities at one sitting -- overwhelms it.What helps: Fenugreek aids carbohydrate metabolism and helps regulate blood sugar levels after meals. Fenugreek contains a specialized type of fiber that slows the absorption of glucose in theintestines and reduces the amount of fat that is absorbed.RED FLAG #2:Craving CarbsFind yourself reaching for quick-hit snacks like candy bars or chips? Simple carbs such as sugars and white flour break... Read more

Last week I visited a Mediterranean and Turkish restaurant. Earlier I had never had any Turkish food, so, when menu came up, all foods were alien to me and were nothing more than beauiful and yummy looking pictures. There was no English translation for the menu available and the waitress was unable to explain what the ingredients were for the dishes. It was lunch time and I was so very hungry. So, I thought of playing safe and ordered a pizza like dish . It took a long time to come, but when it arrived its aroma spoke for itself. It was a thin piece of dough topped with minced meat sprinkled with lemon juice and wrapped around vegetables. The dish was delicious. It was called LAHMACUM - tur... Read more

I'm a die hard fan of Korean food and Dolsot bibimbap (돌솥 비빔밥, "dolsot" meaning "stone pot"), is my favorite one. Almost every second day I eat this.It is served in a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating.The Stone pot (dolsot) is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles for minutes. Before the rice is placed in the bowl, the bottom of the bowl is coated with sesame oil, making the layer of the rice touching the bowl golden brown and crispy.Bibimbap is cheap and easy to make, requir...

Many of my friends ask me my fitness secret why I look always healthy never fatty. When I said I eat every thing including dietary fats, no one believes but that's fact. I believe in healthy eating and leaving. I eat every thing BUT in limitation. lets see some facts about FAT:Eating fat can actually help you lose fat. Your body needs fat to perform certain functions within your body, like providing energy and producing hormones. Any energy that fat provides is energy that isn’t produced from the breakdown of protein. To put it another way – fat is a protein sparing nutrient in the same way that carbohydrates are. Furthermore, by eating fat you will improve your ability to use fat a... Read more

My daughter is not happy with oat porridge. So I was in a dilemma about how to give her oat, so that she won't refuse to eat. I tried to make these cookies and my first trial clicked very well.

Now I have to prepare a big second batch of cookies.Ingredients* 1 cup Raw Oats (coarsely powder)* 3 tbsp Butter* 30 g Green Raisins* 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, Ground* 20 g Wheat flour* 3 tbsp Sugar* 1/2 tbsp Baking SodaDirectionsSieve oat powder, wheat powder and baking soda together, mix cut butter in it.
