Dr Nandita Shah Advocates Vegan Diet

In India, these days so many people in their early thirties are suffering from Diabetes, Hypertension and Obesity. People are so busy, and they really don't know which food is healthy and which food is unhealthy.

Thanks to Dr Nandita Shah - a homeopathy doctor, has been conducting talks, seminars,  and vegan cooking classes from past 8 years across india. My sister recently attended, Dr Nandita Shah's Reversing Diabetes in Pune , and loved it so much. My sister is now urging her friends to attend Dr Nandita Shah's seminars. My sister was not a vegan before attending the seminar, Reversing Diabetes. But, once my sister attended the Reversing Diabetes talk, she didn't feel like consuming yogurt and paneer.

Dr  Nandita Shah conducts so many seminars from New Delhi to Cochin and Bangalore to Mumbai.
Reversing Diabetes, Diary Alternatives for Healthy Vegan Living, Peas vs Pills are some of her popular seminars, and so far thousands of people across India have attended these great seminars.

I recently read that many people in India are thriving on vegan diet , and I feel that Dr Nandita Shah is one of the reasons for the increase in number of vegans in India. If you have friends and family in India, please ask them to attend Dr Nandita Shah's seminars. The seminars cost around two thousand to three thousand rupees.

Good Food in Udupi Cafe , Arizona

In August 2012, my family and I visited Grand Canyon. I enjoyed the breathtaking views of the desert, in Arizona. In Grand Canyon, it's really very hard to get good vegetarian food. We thrived on lara bars, store-bought Indian snacks such as chakli(deep-fried rice flour spirals) and fresh fruits.

We had good food in Udupi Café in Tempe, close to Phoenix. Udupi Café
 The lunch buffet was a treat to my eyes. Most of the buffet was vegan. There were so many vegan items. South Indian dishes such as rice, sambhar( lentils and vegetables thick soup), chutney(ground coconut with spices), beans poriyal(fresh green beans cooked in few spices), idli(thick rice and lentils cake), pakoras(deep-fried vegetable fritters),and vegetable biryani.

Udipi Café is vegan-friendly. In some restaurants, dosas(rice and lentil crepes), are drizzled with ghee or butter. In Udipi Café, all the dosas except cheese dosa and butter masala dosa, are drizzled with oil.

Udupi Café is really a very good restaurant for Indian food. The food is not spicy or  oily, and the food here is so much like home-cooked food. My mother-in-law, who cooks great Indian dishes, also liked the food at Udupi Café. The owner was super friendly. She said, "we get lot of vegan customes, here".

If you are looking for simple Indian food, you should go to this restaurant.
