વરિષ્ઠ નાગરિકો માટે ની ડાયાબિટીસ રેસિપિ - ગુજરાતી માં વાંચો (Senior Citizens Diabetes recipes in Gujarati)

The risk for diabetes increases as we age and the only way to control it is maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. Uncontrolled sugar levels may lead to complications like heart disease, nerve damage and kidney problems.

It is tough to choose the right diabetic-friendly foods as we age, thus we thought of creating a section purely for senior citizens with quick and easy day to day recipes. These can be easily prepared within the comfort of your home and use locally sourced ingredients.

Foods that can be easily included are listed below:

Include whole grains such as ragi, bajra, barley, oats, broken wheat, brown rice as these are high in fiber and will help maintain blood sugar levels. Try Bajra Khichdi and Nourishing Barley Soup.
High fiber legumes such as beans, peas and lentils can be included in soups, dals, and snacks or a subzi. Try Moong Sprouts and Spring Onion Tikki and Moong Dal Sultani
· Include brightly coloured vegetables such as capsicum, tomatoes, spinach, which are full of fiber and antioxidants. Try Gavarfali ki Sukhi Subzi and Grated Cauliflower with Peas
Make use of oils such as olive oil, flaxseed oil, rice bran oil instead of butter, margarine and ghee. Keep a tab on the oil used daily. Restrict it to not more than 3 to 4 teaspoons a day.
Consume whole fruits instead of fruit juices such as pears, apples, jamun, muskmelon, orange etc. Get variety in your meals to avoid temptation to eat calorie laden snacks… Try a snack like Moong Dal and Cauliflower Greens Appe

A few handy hints to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar levels:

Aerated drinks and beverages such as sodas, soft drinks, contain lot of added sugar and are high in calories. Turn to them occasionally.
Restrict starchy food such as sweet potato, potato, purple yam and yam as they can easily increase blood sugar.
Maida, cornstarch are completely refined and with no fiber which can cause weight gain and can be converted to fat if not burnt. They tend to raise blood sugar levels instantly.
Avoid fruits such as banana, grapes, custard apple, chickoo and mangoes as they are high in GI.
