SOUTH INDIAN VEGETARIAN FOOD SAFE AND HEALTHY OR DIFFICIENT ?

I just like to endoorse Mr. Muthuswamy Narayana's post as appreciated by Mr. Kaushikk & R.S.Narayanan tht South Indian Vegetarian Food is safe .

South ndian Vegetarian Food contains simple ingredients , yet contains sufficient Energy-Yielding Nutrients: Carbohydrates, Fat (use of ghee in sweets and rice ) & Protein .

There was a myth and advice about Rice eaters to replace to wheat . Look at the G.I. of different grains .

Glycemic Index , Carbohydrate intake , Blood sugar levels :
Glycemic Index [G.I.]of Grains.
Brown Rice : 68
WHITE RICE : 73
Whole wheat : 62
MAIDA : 89 ( source is wheat - Naan,noodles, the source is Maida )
Besan /
Chick pea : 52 .

South Indian food :

Break fast : Typical S.I. B.F is made out of mainlt rice , but a good mix of dhals also into it . It is not just Idli Dasa as people think . There is a good mix of Rava (sourc from wheat )eg: Rava dosai, Upma, Kitchadi tc.

Lunch : Rice and accompanying curries like Sambar (made from Lentils ), Rasam (Pepper water ) nd the the devine Curd (or butter milk ), 2 cooked vegetables .Some influenced by Yoga diet go for fresh vegetables but not all (uncooked )

Dinner : Will be simplest , many going for Chapathi , or any of the Breakfast itens mentioned above from wheat source .

Kindly take a look at the attached facts to have a clear insight into the contents and the benefits of the Lentils that are consumes sufficiently by S.I. vegetarians .

THE CONCENTARTION OF CONTENTS PARTICULARLY , CARBOHYDRATE , IN THE LIGHT OF DIABETES, FATS ON CVD AND HEART HEALTH , IS VERY LOW . NOTE THE CONTENTS OF VITAMINS & MICRO NUTRIENTS (THAT TOO IN BBOILED COOKED LENTILS ) , excellent .

THE MOST IMPORTANT IS THE CONTENTOF DIETARY FIBER . THAT IS WHY THE AMERICAM GASTRO ENTEROLOGISTS AND PROCTOLOGIS SAY THAT PEOPLE ON HIGH DIETARY FIBER THE INCIDENCE OF COLON CANCER IS MIIMAL .

There may be a shortfall in Vit D and Omega 3 which fish eaters get enough .

Vit D difficiency is rampant among aged non vegetarians also . But simple slution take tablets daily or weekly .

The omega 3 difficiency also can be overcome if they can afford to go for nuts . more

Rather difficult to answer this question posed by Mr Jayakumar.
Similar assessments on other culinary platforms may also not provide a clear and straight answer. Because, different human metabolisms react differently to different foods..... more  
Ordinary soda that most of us drink and the sweets we eat in India are laden with sugar. Do you think those are non- Indian? more  
We have been drinking soda for ages , Goli soda - the gas locked by a playing glass marble . We did have other soft drinks also , grape, orange not with so much fizz as what we get today . more  
Every region has their food and life style. It is a age old customs. more  
VR offers sage advice. His views are, as far as I know, in line with the current thinking in nutrition. Traditional foods are OK as long as we avoid excessive salt, sugar, fat but add other essential components lacking in traditional diet.
India has the makings of a
diabetes epidemic if we don’t stop consuming sugary drinks and other products. more  
sugary drinks as now we are now consuming are non indian foods and drinks more
