Ramadan is the time when people tend to eat unhealthy foods. Often, it’s a feast during breaking the fast, and instead of the body receiving the benefits of fasting, it leads to weight gain and higher blood sugar levels.
According to the International Diabetes Federation, the Middle East is where one-in-nine adults is known to have diabetes with that number rising. They also estimate that worldwide the number of people living with diabetes in 2012 has risen to 371 million compared to 366 million in 2011, with nearly 50 percent of the individuals with diabetes yet to be diagnosed.
On the occasion of the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Beat Diabetes initiative of the Landmark Group, the region’s leading retail and hospitality conglomerate, has launched an e-cookbook to urge the community to adopt a balanced diet and holistic lifestyle.
Packed with 30 nutritious and easy-to-make recipes particularly for families with multi-cuisine choices ranging from Arabic and Indian to Thai.
The lip-smacking, but healthy selection of recipes will take care of your hunger pangs as well as help you stay healthy at the same time.
