South Indian Vegetarian Low Carb Diet – Breakfast2


It is very tough to be on a low carb diet and eat any Indian breakfast. Especially if you are working since you have no time to do all the grinding for any healthy options of Idli or Dosa where you can completely eliminate rice, use just dals.

It has been 2 and 1/2 weeks, yes it is 2 and 1/2 weeks since I started this low carb diet and I have lost close to 10 lbs. I feel really better, my clothes fit a little better, way more energized.

SO, everyday in the morning it is my Husband who makes a bowl of Oat meal. The first few days I added a tsp of honey, low fat milk, and slowly and steadily moved away and now not using either milk or honey.


  • Steel cut Oats
  • 5 Walnuts
  • 5 Dates
  • Almond Milk
  • 5-7 any other nuts you have
  • Finely chopped fruits


  1. Cook Oats as per instructions using 1/2 water and 1/2 milk or just Almond milk
  2. Add chopped walnuts and dates
  3. Eat immediately
  4. Add any other nuts or raisins you have in hand
  5. You can also add strawberries, blue berries, red berries, apples

  1. I am a chronic heart failure and diabetic patient. Primarily I have to do salt/sodium free diet. I have a hard time to find any salt substitute. I would be happy any ideas. I have used lemon juice and tamarind in some cases.

      Hi Devaki,
      Sorry to know that u have a chronic heart disease . I dont the substitue for salt. But my sincere suggestion for you is start eating flax seeds just by dry roasting it or by making chutney powder out of it. Flax seeds are excellent medicine for controlling ur cholestral levels. also one more ramabana for heart diseases is barley soup. I have heard that if healthy person drinks that soup daily he can bypass the bypass sugery itself. That means barley soup is very good for heart. Try to implement both in your diet daily and can see the excellent results

      Hi Devaki,

      U have mentioned thst you are a diabetic also. The diabetes can be easily controlled if you start eating millets. stop eating rice , chapati, meat in case if you are a nonvegetarian.

      Include foxtail millet,little millets , pearl millets in your diet. so all the 3 meals of your diet should be of only millets. if you follow this for 3 months strictly you can see the excellent results.

      Also take the jack fruit which is not ripened one and start eating curry or sambar prepared out of it . Your glucose level will fall down immediately. in case if u r taking insulin it will completely eliminate the use of insulin.

  2. Eating oats is not good for health. People think its a healthy diet it is myth it contains Gluten which can cause cancer.


  3. Hi Meera,

    Many people are strongly believing that oats is a healthy diet and helpful for weight loss.
    But this is a myth. Many of us won’t know that oats contain one dangerous carcinogenic element called as gluten. someone has filed a case against quackers oats in USA because of the presence of gluten in the quackers oats.

    So I request you to avoid the use of oats as far as possible. whatever our elderly people had discovered like idly’s and dosas those are the healthiest diets . That’s why our elderly people are “gatti-Mutti” even today.

    Neither they had oats in their diet and nor they had the cholestral problems.
    since oats requires very less time for preparation people are crazy to eat it and company like quackers are making profit out of it by playing a gimmick that is a haelty diet.

    please never never fall to this gimmicks and stick to our grandma’s recipies to save your health because in today’s world ” Health is your biggest wealth”

    Awesome job compiling all these recipes. It’s like a one stop shop for Karnataka recipes.



  5. Thanks for sharing it. We do not need to add sugar since all the fruits and other items like nuts and milk make it sweet and tasty and keep us healthy.
