Diabetes Care Guide for Dussehra 2021

Dussehra brings us back to our favourite childhood memories. Ramleela, fireworks, delicacies and a joyful time with our family. But along with the festivities, Dussehra is a reminder of the power of good over evil. It is celebrated as a major Hindu festival in India with absolute grandeur. We honour the victory of good over evil by burning the effigy of Ravana. 

While every Indian festival stands for a plethora of delicacies, it may lead you off track with a temptation for your taste buds.  Let’s make this Dussehra memorable by choosing a  healthy lifestyle over an unhealthy one.

How to enjoy a diabetes-friendly Dussehra?

We consume a lot of savoury delights which are high in both sugar and fat. These will further aggravate your diabetic situation. It does not mean that we have to dampen our festive spirit. There are always healthier ways to relish our favourite foods. To avoid a sudden drop or spike in your sugar levels, adopt the following changes to your diet- 

Stevia over Artificial Sweeteners
Stevia is a natural, plant-based sweetener that is a good option for diabetics. It has zero- calories which do not cause a sudden spike in your sugar levels. Replace your everyday consumption of sugar with stevia to enjoy its health benefits. You should opt for Stevia Liquid Drops to manage your sugar levels in the best possible way. 

Herbal Tea over Caffeine
Caffeine is not a good choice for diabetic people. Being a diabetic, you should replace it with herbal tea. Herbals teas help you in calming your mind and detoxifying your body. BeatO’s Herbal Teas come packed with health benefits and are good for your sugar levels. 

Sugar-Free Chocolate over Normal Chocolates
Feeling guilty about your sugar cravings? Relish dark and sugar-free chocolate and satiate the sweet tooth in you. The sugar-free chocolates offered by BeatO are ideal for diabetics. They brim with intense flavours and contain no added sugar. 

Quinoa Chips over Deep Fried Snacks
Having deep-fried snacks increases your risk of both Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease. Replace it with healthier options that are less oily and low on the glycemic index. BeatO’s Quinoa Chips are baked and not fried. They are packed with flavour and help in keeping your sugar levels under control. 

Almond Flour over Maida
Almond Flour is low on the glycemic index. As compared to maida or wheat flour, it has less sugar and carbohydrates. It helps you in managing your sugar levels more effectively. It is also rich in Vitamin E and other antioxidants which helps in avoiding serious health complications such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. 

You do not have to go crazy while making the right food choices, being a diabetic, you just have to look for healthier food options to keep your sugar levels in check. Keep in mind the portion size of every food item that you are consuming and consult your doctor or health coach if required.
