Murtani or pepper choka is the choka of all chokas. With roasted bhaigan, tomatoes and ochroes, there is little left to want in this smoky and savoury side dish. Add as much or as little hot pepper as you would like. The choka is herbaceous, spicy and seasoned. Serve with sada roti for a delightful lunch or dinner.
The classic curried mango is a must-have at Divali celebrations. Sandra follows her mother by skipping the extra step of boiling the mango before currying it. The result is fantastic. The mango soaks up the masala and curry while becoming tender and juicy. Enjoy it down to the seed.
Ladoo is one of the most outstanding Divali desserts. Its signature yellow colour and distinct flavour profile set it aside from other popular desserts around this time. The importance of ladoo however, stems from its usage in puja and it being the favourite sweet of Lord Ganesh.
Traditionally eaten from a brown paper bag, parsad is a favourite of many. Made with either cream of wheat or flour, it is usually served along with other sweets at the end of puja. The dessert is perfumed by aromatics like ginger and cardamom and can either have raisins and nuts mixed in or served on the side.
I’ve had the privilege and honor to meet families from all walks of life. I’m impacted in a different way by each of my patients but I love them all the same, with all my heart.
A new home, a new job, the loss of a loved one, the loss of a dream; change is a part of life. Sometimes it’s positive, and other times it’s not so positive. But regardless of what forms it comes in, you have a choice; you can either ride the wave of change, or let it crash upon you as you struggle to remain afloat. Sure, it’s easy to adopt an attitude of letting things take their own course, without interfering. It’s the path of least resistance to shrug your shoulders, step back and watch as the events unfold and take their own course. But while that certainly requires less effort, it also dis-empowers you and rule you out from taking control over your own life.
Your gums are like cushions for your teeth; they surround the tooth from its crown to its root in the jaw and help to support a healthy mouth. Looking after your gums is just as important as looking after your teeth, and without routine cleaning gum disease can occur.
While I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to treating any condition, there are certain dietary changes that any woman dealing with hormone imbalances can consider to support their condition. I am coaching many clients who are dealing with painful and irregular periods, infertility, unexplained weight gain, low energy, anxiety and mood swings which are common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances. By making changes to the foods that they eat everyday, their symptoms have improved, as they were able to feed their bodies with the nutrients they need for optimal health.
Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells form in the tissues of the pancreas. This type of cancer is quite lethal; it shows no signs and can spread very rapidly, leaving it usually undiagnosed until the very late stages. Natalie Sabga is the founder of the John E Sabga Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer. She started this foundation in honor of her late husband John who passed away from pancreatic cancer. His time with the disease was very brief and he passed quite swiftly, Natalie expressed. In a recent interview, here’s what she had to say.
As doctor I see about a patient’s individual health at every consultation. But, in the grand scheme of things, it is really the collective population’s health that is a true measure of our nation’s progress when we speak in terms of achieving millennium goals and sustainable development. As we continue to increase investment in healthcare, the incidence and prevalence of chronic disease and their complications continue to rise to alarming proportions. One may say that, the flaw is in the healthcare system itself, which results in no returns in this substantial investment of our budget. However, if we look at developed countries like the USA and in Europe, the same scenario occurs. Therefore, focusing on healthcare alone, and one that is only centered on the individual consultation, means that we are definitely missing the boat where population health is concerned. Apart from healthcare and its funding, there are other variables that impinge on individual health, which in turn affects population health that may not be obvious to us and, more importantly, our policy makers.
A busy schedule can really take a toll on not only your body, but also your mind and you spirit. It’s in times like this that we seek those little escapes that can uplift our spirits and help heal what the previously hectic and draining week may have broken. But, isn’t there a way to not let our selves get to the point of breaking? Do we always have to let the struggles of life tear us down to build ourselves back up again over and over? The answer to that question is no, we don’t have to constantly let life tear us down. Physical, mental and emotional health is what keeps us going on a daily basis.
Imagine lying on a bed for ten minutes and getting rid of your aches and pains? Doesn't that just sound like a “get out of here”, type of situation? We also thought the same at the first sound of it, until the Sunday Guardian team visited Parc Diagnostics (PD) in Woodbrook, Port-of-Spain, and was allowed to experience the BEMER (pronounced beamer) microcirculation therapy. Pretty soon, towards the end, there were very few 'monkey faces' left.
