South Indian Vegetarian Low Carb Diet – Day 1 Lunch

Yesterday, I wrote about going on Low carb diet. Like I said, it is all about carefully planning every meal. It is tedious, it is laborious, it is expensive, but it is very healthy. This should definitely motivate anyone to go on this diet.

So, on day 1 this was the lunch plate. All items listed here are posted on this blog. I have added links to all the recipes. Just wanted to emphasize, I am  vegetarian and not vegan. So, my plate does have low fat yogurt.

So, the plate has Majjige Huli or Khadi, Nuccina Unde, Hesaru Kalu Usli or Sprouted Moong Dal Usli and a cup of low fat yogurt.

 

South Indian Vegetarian Low Carb Diet

This post may come as a surprise for many of you. If you have been constantly reading my posts, you know very well I am very health conscious. And knowing that, you might be even more surprised to see this term “Low Carb Diet“.

It has been several years since I shyed away from eating white rice on a daily basis. I made rice maybe once a week. And during this day, when I made rice, I made sure we had delicious rubbida huli or Sambar, spicy saru or Rasam, a whole lot of fried Happala and Sandige. As you read that last sentence, your mouth started watering, right?

Told you, I ate this one day guilt free. Always reminding everyone we ate rice just 1 day a week. All other days, my cooking would be Avalakki, Upma, Chapathi, Dosa slightly healthy with brown rice, Idli and above all chapathi. So, even though we didn’t eat rice, the calories we consumed were way too high. And not to forget Sabhudana Khicahdi. Every Thursday night without fail.

Hmm, now you get it right? No rice, but all these other items still kept us full of high calories. And I kept complaining that even though I walked almost close to 5-6 miles and sometimes close to 7 miles, the scale didn’t budge. The weight kept creeping up slowly pound by pound.

Even though the weight kept adding, I have to thank God, the detailed medical checkup I had during my last visit for my Tietze syndrome showed no health issues.

However, it kept bugging me like crazy why my weight was not reducing. And one day after talking to my Would be Doctor Daughter, she said” Mom, stop being an Indian Vegetarian, become an American Vegetarian”. I asked her what she meant, she said Stop eating all those breakfast items you eat, and start eating Oatmeal. Do you know even the chapathi you eat has so many calories, and it is filled with carbs.

Her words kept ringing in my ear, and finally on April 18th I decided I am going to stop eating any carbs at all. It has been exactly 10 days, I have not touched rice, no chapathi, no dosa, no idli, no bread nothing.

It is not easy being a vegetarian, eating south Indian food to go on most diets you see online. We have to build our own meals, and our own plan. And that’s exactly what I am planning on doing.

So, now you may ask what do I eat? Remember all the dals, palyas, nucchina unde and kosambaris. That’s what I eat. It has been exactly 10 days, I have lost a few pounds nothing significant. I had a slight headache for 2 days, but it is gone now as well. I plan my meals, prepare well ahead. It is expensive, it is laborious, but worth every dollar and every pound I loose.

My husband also started this journey with me. He however eats 1 or 2 small chapathis. But, no rice. He accompanies me in long walks, exercise. We are in this together. Towards a healthy tomorrow, and low carb diet with loads of dals, legumes, vegetables, and fruits.

I will start posting more and more food items with low carbs. If you want to lead a healthy living, if you wish to reduce your cholesterol levels, if you wish to reduce your blood pressure, If you wish to loose some pounds, come join us in our journey. we will go through this journey together. Share our recipes, share our thoughts, share our frustrations when the scale doesn’t budge.:)

P.S: If you really have chronic illness, please consult your Doctor.

7 Million All Times Hits to Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu – Thank You

HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!!

I had never imagined having so many visitors visit this blog even in my wildest dreams. I had posted about 6 Million September 13, 2015, and within a few months to have another million is just unimaginable.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.41.45 AM

It is just humbling to know that this blog has raised so much interest and enthusiasm about our food, festival and culture. Doesn’t matter where in the world you are, which remote part of the world you are, we have seen time and again that ” Where there is a WILL, there is a WAY. Where there is no WILL, there is a HILL”.

The comments I read here, and many of you have sent and have been constantly sending emails each and every time I post something which interests you, is truly the inspiration for this blog. I have met many of you personally, while in temples or any other place, when you come and ask ” Are you the same Meera of this blog”, I feel such joy which cannot be expressed in words. THANKS!

This blog has also taught me to be humble, honest, a good and compassionate person. The comments and emails which several of you share about your own experiences good and bad, happy and sad have completely changed my perspective about life.

The several comments each one of you share about you own miracles of our Beloved Rayaru have made me even more staunch devotee.

Where there is good, there is bad. Where there is sweet there is sour. Where there is Light there is also darkness. Where there is Happiness, there soon follows some sadness. Where there is birth, in the near future it is followed by death. Similarly, there are good comments and sometimes not so good. The bad and irrelevant make me sad just a tiny bit, and immediately follows a good one by the many who reply.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. Let us keep our culture alive, spread our customs and traditions in a good way and above all spread tolerance and patience.

None of this would have been possible without the blessings of Lord Almighty and our Beloved Rayaru.

THANKS AGAIN. AND HERE IS TO WISHING WE WILL REACH ANOTHER MILLION IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

Chanda Kochhar’s letter to her daughter

Every time I talk to my Mom, she tells me some interesting articles she has read, a great recipe she saw on TV, or many times miracles of our beloved Rayaru. Today when I talked to her, she mentioned about a letter a Mom had written to her Daughter in a Kannada newspaper. I told her”Mom, it will be all over internet and I will read it”. And yes, the letter was posted by Ms. Melinda Gates on Facebook. I called back my Mom and told her I read the letter. I re-posted the same to my daughter, women colleagues at work, my whatsapp groups. I also read it loud to my Husband.

I have heard so many women tell me how hard it is to work, how hard it is to survive in this Male dominated society, how women pull down women at work and at home. Have I seen these things happen to me, YES. I have also seen this happen to my Mom, my Sister, my colleagues. As working women, we have gone through many challenges ourselves. We go through challenges everyday. But, most working women have a loving and caring family which makes it worth all the trouble we take at home and at work.

The letter Mrs. Chanda has written resonates so very well with all working women.

Read the letter, and share your thoughts.

The entire letter can be read from this link:

Chanda Kochhar’s Letter to her Daughter

Some quotes from her letter is posted below:

I believe in fate but I also believe that hard work and diligence plays a very important role in our lives. In a larger sense, we all write our own destiny. Take destiny in your own hands, dream of what you want to achieve, and write it in your own way. As you go ahead in life, I want you to climb the path to success one step at a time. Aim for the sky, but move slowly, enjoying every step along the way. It is all those little steps that make the journey complete.

As you go forward, you will sometimes have to take difficult decisions, decisions that others might scorn at. But you must have the courage to stand up for what you believe in. Make sure you have that conviction to do what you know is right, and once you have it, don’t let skeptics distract you from your path.
