I am sure you can buy bread/dough mixes at your health food stores even target carries them. Also sprouted breads like ezecial are very good for us.
From what I have heard, It takes some getting used to, I don't use it though.

Bread is difficult for me to chew so I just gave it up altogether.... I am having difficulty with sugar. In my am (only cup of coffee), I have just creamer....then my ensure or special k shake...I have added Cinnamon.... And I was having white tea as the liquid (with coconut water) for my smoothies... No sugary snacks at all.....but I wonder what else I can do to lower the sugar from my creamer and shakes......

glucerna is the diabetic formula of ensure...less sugar. look at the sugar/carbohydrates on the labels to pick the highest protein least sugars/carbs. You could use almond milk protein with out the dairy if that bothers you.

Soy products play havoc on our thyroids.

I was told for 10 long miserable years that my thyroid labs were "normal"....Not So. We are not numbers, we are symptoms.

I can't imagine not having meats in my life. I was born in eating meats and at 77 feel strong and good with my meats. Most vegetarians I've met are overweight. My 87 yr old neighbor is too thin and she needs more fat on her to fight what comes her way. She's in a lot of pain with arthritis in so many parts of her body and her appetite is poor.

EnglishDave,

Aloo Saag has potato. Aloo means a potato in Hindi.

I eat Chana masala every 3-4 days.Chana meaning chick peas or Bengal gram Masala means spice in Hindi.It has high protein content.

Naan is nothing but white bread moulded into circular shape.It is EXTREMELY HIGH in calories.May be 600 or more per Naan.It is equivalent to 7-8 white bread slices,may be more.

Paneer is cheese. I eat paneer very rarely. It is high in calories.

All this Indian food is Punjabi origin. Punjab is border of India and Pakistan.

I have been to UK in 2001. I stayed in Edinburgh for 7 months, just near the Princess Street.I used to travel to my work place in Rosyth,Fife every morning crossing the Forth Road Bridge over the sea.

I stayed for a week in Milton Keynes and another in Hounslow,London for my work.

UK has lot of Pakistanis (Muslims) though there are Indians also.
Indians are mostly Punjabis and Sikhs(they wear a turban always on their head). There are fewer Hindus

Indians are mostly concentrated in London's Wembley,Southall,Hounslow and some in Manchester.

Birmingham is Pakistan inside England. I have heard it has 60% population of Pakistani origin.

Most of Pakistanis migrated there as asylum seekers.

Amit,

Indians, due I think to our Colonial and language links, make up the largest Minority Group in the UK at 1.5 million, or 2.5% of population. 1.5% of the population are Hindu. There are 1.17 million Pakistanis and just under a million Africans. Add to this the additional European, Middle Eastern and Asian people who come here and we have a wonderful Melting Pot of Cultures which - in the main - live and intermingle together well.

Sure, there are some anti-immigrant voices, but time and again they are drowned out and voted down into obscurity in every case that matters.

Personally, I believe we should concentrate on stronger ties with our Commonwealth friends rather than the EU.

Dave.

Which is the safest zero cal sugar substitute which can be used with tea,coffeee or milk?

There are many brands in India.

Which generic is safe - Sucralose, Aspartame, Acesulfame K, Stevia Rebaudiana which is a herb ?

I read Aspartame and Acesulfame K are carcinogens .

Is sucralose safe ?

Stevia natural sweetener is good but its sweetness is very less .You have to put 3-4 pellets to make it sweet.

Population of India is a whopping 1.3 billion, may be more. It is a densely populated country. It is more than 4 times the US population. The geographical area of India is just one third of the USA. That will give you an idea of how populous India is. There is crowd everywhere.

82% of Indian population is Hindu. 16% Muslims and 2% other religions like Christians,Jews etc.

Surprisingly India is the largest exporter of beef in the world though 82% (820 to 830 million) of its population does not eat beef.

All the beef exported from India is by the 18% (180-190 million) non Hindu population.

This independent evidence-based professional health site discusses all of the sweeteners that you have mentioned; http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Goodfood/...sucralose.aspx .

They all look fine to me.

Animal (rat) model studies have shown that both aspartame and Acesulfame K can be carcinogens. The dose of Acesulfame K which put rats at increased risk is the equivalent of a human consuming 1343 12 oz cans of artificially sweetened soft drink every day - I don't know anybody who does that and similar data apply to aspartame.

Quantitative thinking (considering dose-response relationships) is, in my opinion, the basis of making rational health choices.

I have been buying an Australian Organic Stevia powder. It's expensive. I've become used to it being less sweet and only use a little of it in my tea. I grew up in sugar cane country so we ate a lot of sugar and sugar products when I was young unfortunately.

I found out recently when looking into Stevia further that are some disputes regarding it being all that good for us as well. There are probably much better sites about it but I had saved this one in bookmarks so it's easier for me to post.
