      I love the idea of steaming. You are getting the most out of it. Club this along with a low calorie diet and regular exercise.

    I am a regular user of Bitter guard. Pretty old in age I have no sugar problem so far.In spite of the bitter taste, I like and enjoy eating Bitter guard as much as I can . It is a regular routine for me. How do I take it.? Here is the recipe:-

    Bitter guard, after washing well is cut into circular pieces, 4 rings in 2 cms length, soak them for quite some time in medium thick Tamarind water, which contains turmeric powder, salt to taste and a small quantity of Asafoetida powder.In a frying pan with little oil heated, add dry chilly and mustard seeds. After the splutter of Mustard, transfer the cut bitter guard pieces and Tamarind water entirely into the frying pan and allow them to cook for quite some time till it becomes soft and the tamarind water evaporates away. Your Bitter guard rings are ready. If the seeds are very tender let it remain . Otherwise discard the seeds. Not a difficult dish to prepare.And the bitter taste will not come in your way.

    Dear Sanjana,

    I landed accidentallly on your blog but found the contennts brilliant & very informative. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    Here’s my first question: I have read at multiple places about health benefits of Oats. I try to eat atleast 100 grams of Oats a day with milk. Can you please confirm that this much is ok or am I overdoing it?

      Hi Vikas,

      Oats is good for health but you are overdoing it. Take not more than 25 grams of oats per day…

    Hi Sanjana,

    You look so cute with your smiling face. Your topics on how to maintain good health is great. The fruits, vegetables and cereals mentioned if taken in the right manner will carry oneself in good health and we will always feel young in body and at heart. Keep up your good advice many will benefit from it if they follow the instruction properly. I have come across people who say that if beetroot is taken on a daily basis will end up in getting a cold. Is this true? because I have not felt it that way all I was told by my mum that all vegetable are good if taken properly. Continue your good advice. I will pray for you to do the right thing always and help the common man. God bless you.
