Burger that keeps your diabetes happy and smiling 😀

The latest dia-safe or pro-dia food that I discovered was quinoa. It is supposed to be even better than oats. It tastes yummy. It’s full of protein and fibre. And if you are a person like me who eats a lot of rice then you can psyche yourself to believe that this is rice because of the way it looks and you have eat with spoon unlike the way we eat rice or chapathi. So I’ve been obsessing with oats for sometime but seems like quinoa might be my new switch. I went to a new nutritionist yesterday and she seems thrilled that I like oats and quinoa. I shared the oats khichidi recipe in my last post. But before I could write about the oats biryani, I found the killer stuff on quinoa – Quinoa Burger. Beat that!!

Imagine having diabetes and being able to still eat stuff like burger. Seems like dream? No its not! I’m so glad and happy that this blog – Eating well living thin has come out with this great recipe that I want to share on my blog.Also if you are diabetic and also keeping tab of your fat, you can replace the cheese in the recipe with some tofu or just more interesting vegetables like mashed cauliflower/gobi so that the fat in the burger is less. And of course eat it with whole wheat bread so you get your fibre.

But yes I will keep with my promise of the oats biryani. Not just that. I’m also going to share all my experiments with quinoa, yes my experiments with truth too. 😛

P.S: So yes try the recipe and tell me what you think 😀

P.P.S: I will soon share the nutritional details of oats and quinoa after consulting my nutritionist 🙂

Are you sugarfree? Then have a sweet day…


I begin my day affirming to myself, ‘This moment is filled with joy. I now choose to experience the sweetness of today.’ After 7 years of diabetes, I still believe that a cure awaits me. Where did I begin? Somewhere in Oct, 2005, I was diagnosed with the condition of diabetes. I repeat, “Diabetes is a condition” meaning my pancreas cannot secrete enough insulin. My pancreas has been conditioned to feel so. I was born with healthy pancreas. Over the years, various reasons had contributed to this conditioning. I refuse to agree with anyone who calls it a disease. Having a short sight or long sight of the eye is not considered a disease. It is a condition. Anyway I’m done convincing people who brand themselves ‘diabetic’ instead of considering themselves as people with the condition of diabetes. Having said that, I’m on a journey to find answers for this condition. I want to condition myself back to good health. I have been at it for years. Nothing like what I’m trying now. I have tried a lot of things. It is not trying that has been my problem. My problem has been that of consistency. So here I’m going public with this condition sharing it with the world so I find the strength to do it everyday. I want to make my healing fun by sharing it. Tell the world what I did each day, what I discovered new about this condition, any new learnings, what are sugar levels like, what does the doctor think, are there alternate healing methods to heal diabetes, some new experimental recipes that are working well for me, good food for diabetes, the right nutrition, the right exercise – everything that I try to sort it out. You are more than welcome to talk to me about diabetes, what works and doesn’t. Let’s share. Let’s talk beating diabetes.

If I should get into some fact sheet details then Diabetes is one of the fastest growing conditions in the world. More people are diagnosed with this condition everyday due to the high flying lifestyle, fast food, lack of exercise and HIGH stress levels blah, blah, blah… So finally I’m super excited to be doing this. Blogging about diabetes so I can beat and so can you (if you are diabetic that is :P)

Talk to you soon 🙂
