Here is an article ("8 Low-Carb Veggies for a Diabetes-Friendly Diet", by Regina Boyle Wheeler) talking about the Low-Carb Veggies that would be helpful to a diabetic diet. Please check out the article and slide show. The website is: everydayhealth.com/type-2-d...

If you would like to see the pictures after the slide show is over, click on the "View All" button at the bottom of the screen. It will give you the eight pictures without the video/slide show. I thought it was very interesting and gave me some great ideas for the next get together I have coming up. Plus, the veggies listed can help keep the blood sugars under control very nicely.

Bottle gourd/lauki does not spike. Around 3 gm net carbs /100 gm. No free/simple sugar. I regularly eat lauki.

Halwa, subji etc.

shrisamarth,

What are the halwa and subji?

shrisamarth
shrisamarthVolunteer in reply to Activity2004

Sabji is vegetable preparation.

Halwa (grated bottle gourd or carrots)is sweet dish preparation made with ghee and/or khoya (khoya means - most of the moisture is removed from the milk).

You are right but now i have to review what i said about lauki. I think i'm wrong about lauki.

cure
cureAdministrator in reply to suramo

Hmmm well suramo and shrisamarth what we are comparing is just carb contents of Lauki...

But guess what??? for some ppl even raw tomato spikes... may be suramo is right that lauki spiked tro him...

For me even raw tomato spikes...

Guess each individual responds different to different food items... so regular BS check with meter is required...

That can be made at home. I'm asking if it's very bitter or there is some way of cooking to remove bitterness.

Shashikantiyengar
ShashikantiyengarVolunteer in reply to suramo

Not too bitter

That's why I mentioned that I mix with moong sprouts. Anyway I have now learnt to have bitters

I love that --just dont know how to cook

Cooking veg is very simple.

1. Wash every veg you buy fresh.

2. Cut the veg to small pieces to lower cooking time.

3. Put olive oil and butter, small quantity in a small pan, now put the veg in, add any specie you want, wait for the steam to develop, lower the heat, put salt and pepper, cook in a lower het till the veg is cooked.

4. Now you can eat the veg on its own or with rice or what ever you want.

I normally cook a small quantity of any frozen veg and can eat the veg alone with tomatoes and olive oil this is for lunch time. Breakfast microwave porridge. Dinner what ever is cooked.

Give it a try. May be the first time you it get burned, it is OK to eat that veg.

cureAdministrator in reply to Shashikantiyengar

Shashikantiyengar just search local ayurveda shop or shatvari herb.... soak those sticks in water full night....

and consume them as salad... shatavari means asparagus... :P

However the variety of asparagus which is consumed in western world as vegetable is bit different....

Fatbuddy
Fatbuddy in reply to cure

Is that same as " Saragva sing "" OR drm sticks in India ??

Informative!

Yes. Esp puree. Eat whole with skin as salad. Will not spike

Lauki is good. Lauki with little pulse never spikes my sugar. I usually take this without any Chapatti at night. Thanks.
