Sauteed bitter gourd
« on: June 05, 2019, 11:22:44 PM »
I remember my mother telling us to have bitter gourd once a week to stabilize our blood pressure. Here is the simple recipe....

Ingredients are 2 pieces of bitter gourd, 1 onion and some garlic, 1 egg.

Slice the bitter gourd after taking away the core. Crush the garlic and slice the onion. Sautee the garlic and onion then add a little water before adding the bitter gourd. After 2 minutes of stirring, add the beaten egg and let it boil until the egg is cooked. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Its an easy and delicious dish. I love to eat it with hot rice. I sometimes eat it in raw and its bitter. ( Ha.Ha.Ha ) Aside from the fact that it is good for diabetic patient because it can help maintain blood sugar. It also has many nutritional values that contributes good health. It also help aid in losing weight. I have tried juicing it paired with pineapple, apple, banana, melon and papaya. It maybe bitter but its delicious.

I am not really sure if bitter gourd or ampalaya is good for diabetics. One specialist doctor said that bitter gourd for diabetes is just a myth. One popular singer who is diabetic pulled out his endorsement of a bitter gourd supplement as per the advice of his diabetologist.

Diabetes is a lifetime disease. It can only be treated but cannot be cured. The medicine available in the market only helps to regulate blood sugar.When it comes to bitter gourd it might help lower blood sugar but not a guarantee. Even fruits is not good for diabetic patient because of its sugar content. Mango, watermelon and ripe papaya are few fruits that has high glycemic index ( sugar) It should be taken in smaller portion. I think diabetes is controlled with in our ways. We need to eat healthy good food in moderation and exercise in regular basis.
