I got an invite to attend the diabetic master class event conducted by Semora Entertainment works….. sponsored by Britannia Nutrichoice, BioCon etc. at Hotel Park Hyatt, Chennai
. My mom suffering from diabetes from past 5 years so i was so eager to attend this diabetic master class held at Park Hyatt hotel by Seema Pinto ( http://www.semora.in/ )  who is really a sweet heart said many easy ways to overcome diabetes.. She also said how she overcome diabetes and living a healthy life now by just changing her way of living mainly reducing to smaller portion of nutritious food made to reach her goal..She want to spread awareness about diabetes so she wants all the  restaurants to serve with diabetic friendly foods….  The main idea of Diabetic food trail is to help diabetic patients who travel a lot due to various reasons  get diabetic friendly food at  any restaurants across India …

I totally enjoyed the whole Nutrichoice Essentials Diabetic Master class … Here is wat i learnt from Dr. Wasim, Seema Pinto and Chef Vamsi & Chef Teuku
Being a north Indian i was eagerly waiting for vegeterian dishes Today i came to know a fact that ghee is a fat burner, if used in small quantities. If we want to come out of diabetes we have to eat smaller portions of food as well exercise regularly mainly walking helps us to control sugar level in blood … We can also use Black Salt as much as possible.. ..Use millets in ur diet .. cook recipes ranging from appetisers, entrees and desserts without use of sugar and also have food when you feel hungry  again in small portions. Just to kill the appetite. says Seema Pinto
Foods high in chromium can improve GTF glucose tolerance factor in your body and naturally balance out blood glucose levels. Broccoli, raw cheese, green beans and grass-fed beef are all high in chromium, however broccoli has the highest amounts by far and  Sprinkling herbs like cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley on your food may also help balance blood sugar levels. says Dr.Wasim…..
Asian Lettuce Cup, Tuna Salad Wraps, Baked assorted Lentil stew casserole, pan seared sea bass, Pecan, Red banana and Nutri choice essentials oats biscuit pudding were the dishes made by Chef Vamsi & Chef Teuku
I totally loved the taste of  Baked assorted Lentil stew casserole…


Dessert… Pecan, Red banana and Nutri choice essentials oats biscuit pudding I made for veg pudding without egg with chef vamsi….

VB Signature (Pure Vegetarian Restaurant )

VB Signature from the house of Namma Veedu Vasantha Bhavan is ready to surprise us with various Vegetarian cuisines in its newly opened restaurant at Nungambakkam High Road – Opposite KFC, Next to Univercell showroom. We were invited for tasting session its very different from the traditional image of a south Indian restaurant —the lighting is bistro-like, the seating resembles a café. We were greeted by the Chef Vignesh.
