What Makes Date Cake A Healthy Option for Diabetics

Dates are rich in fiber and are a healthier alternative to white sugar. They are loaded with copper, potassium, manganese, vitamin B-6, fatty, acids, and proteins.

This study confirms that there is no major difference in the glycemic index of healthy subjects and those with Type 2 diabetes, when given a daily diet with dates.

This means that dates may be a potential healthy option for diabetics as part of a balanced meal.
But remember, indulgence is not what we are talking about.
A slice of this eggless dates cake for diabetics is all you need to enjoy this baked beauty as a sugar patient.

  5. Add oil, orange juice, lime juice and whisk the wet ingredients.
  6. I put them to a food processor and churned them.

  8. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the dates-oil mixture.
  9. Mix with light hands or you may use a whisker.
  10. Add water little by little until you get pouring consistency.
  11. Take a steel bowl or baking pan and grease it. Dust the pan with dry flour.

  13. Sprinkle oats over the batter.
  14. Sprinkle roasted almond flakes and walnuts as well.
  15. Place the greased pan in the cooker.

    1. Well, the cooker would heat up for sure. However, there are people who choose to bake without sand or salt. I have learned this hack from them. Place a cooker stand and then the baking pan above it. I have kept a separate cooker for this purpose. The cooker does get heatedup, but it is easy to clean.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
