January 2010

Wow, it’s January 2010, the beginning of a new decade!

January is the month that we often think of making healthier food choices and losing weight, if needed. As you might have noticed on my website I am a nutrition and diabetes consultant and a speaker, as well as an Indian cuisine expert. My experience and expertise includes healthy eating, weight loss, diabetes, and heart disease. I have counseled thousands of clients and presented numerous programs to consumers and professionals. This January, I am offering an ONLINE 8-week weight-loss class called Diet Busters, starting Monday, January 18, 2010 at 6 pm EST. You can be anywhere and attend the class; all you need is a telephone, computer with internet connection, and an hour of your time each week during the course.

Diet Busters Weight-Loss Class: Eating well is one of life’s biggest pleasures. However, for many people the enjoyment of eating is spoiled by feelings of conflict, anxiety, and guilt. The Diet Busters class will provide weight-loss strategies to help you attain and maintain a healthy weight. The program will focus on understanding one’s own eating issues and patterns as you lose weight. For details and cost of class go to Diet Busters.

Sign up early and save: Sign up by Thursday, January 14th and save $100.

Refer me and earn up to $200: Do you know an event planner or wellness coordinator in your organization or community who hires health-related speakers? For speaking topics and a flyer go to

If you connect me with a person who books me to speak, I’ll pay you $200 (or an equal donation to your favorite charity)!

Or, ask a cooking school to invite me to teach an Indian cooking class in your area. More information on cooking classes. If you connect me with a person who books me for a cooking class, you can attend the class for free (I will pay your registration to the class).

January Recipes: Sticking with the theme of eating healthfully, I have picked some of my favorite seasonal vegetable recipes this month. One of the key recommendations in most weight-loss meal plans is to eat more vegetables because they are low in calories and high in nutrients. But vegetables can often be boring or tasteless unless they are laden with lots of fatty dressing. This is not true with Indian vegetable dishes. All the four recipes below are low in calories and fat, easy to make, and delicious.

Mixed Greens (Punjabi Saag)
Sweet and Sour Carrots (Gajar Ki Subji)
Chickpea Salad (Kabuli Chana Salad)
Cauliflower Mixed Vegetable (Gobhi Gajar Ki Subji), includes YouTube video

Please forward this newsletter to anyone who might enjoy the recipes or may be interested in signing up for the Diet Busters class.

Wishing you and your family a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Happy and Healthy Cooking!
