Indian recipes using honey, Veg Recipes using Honey

Honey is one of the most natural substances known to humans since ancient times. It is a thick, gluey and sweet tasting liquid. Honeybees collect nectar from flowers and store it in their hive, where it is processed with their digestive juices. It is then extracted using traditional methods or a mechanical honey extractor. Although honey is preferred in its raw form, commercially you can also find pasteurized, strained, ultrasonicated and dried honey.

Is Honey Safe for Diabetes?

In reality honey and sugar both are filled with carbs and will affect blood sugar levels. The use of honey by diabetics has been under debate. Research shows that on consumption of honey by a group of diabetics, initially increased the blood sugar levels. But after 2 hours the blood sugar levels dropped and were under control.

This probably indicated that the consumption of honey, might increase insulin levels in the body which has a positive effect on blood sugar levels. Moreover, it is also a fact that honey is more sweeter than sugar and so may require less quantity. However, honey is not the wisest option to be picked by diabetics. Any fluctuation in blood sugar levels is not considered safe for them. So addition of generous amounts of honey to make desserts is a complete No-No. However if you wish to have it in moderate amounts occasionally, talk to your doctor and dietitian. Adjust the dose of medicine and other carbs in the diet before adding honey to your diet.

Is Honey Beneficial for Weight Loss?

Honey Lemon Water is a drink which most weight watchers prefer to have early in the morning. The hot water in this concoction helps to break down the fat globules, while the honey and lemon duo aids in cleansing and removing toxins from the body and thus boost metabolism. But at the same time honey lends some calories as well. So if you opt for this drink pre-workout, probably honey will give you an energy boost and you will also burn these calories from honey.

Thus, though honey can be used, you should be in mindful about the amount of honey being added to your meal plan. Restrict the quantity of honey to not more than 1 tsp per glass (this will add only 20 calories). Also concentrate on eating a whole lot of other foods which aid in giving a trimmed waistline, as there is no such one food which helps in achieving your weight loss targets.
