Benefits Of Consuming Soaked Fenugreek Seeds And Almonds




This is not much of a post but is something that I have been doing over the last couple of years. These small steps everyday go a long way in diabetes management.

Consuming a teaspoon of overnight-soaked fenugreek seeds was suggested to me by an endocrinologist in India.  Aside from the numerous health benefits these wonderful seeds provide, they are  one of the natural sources for controlling blood sugar and consuming them regularly on an empty stomach every morning is said to have a good control on blood sugar and is also good for maintaining the cholesterol levels on the lower side.  One thing to note that is  the seeds are very bitter, so we have to make sure that we swallow them whole, may be with more water if needed.

Every night before going to bed, I make sure to soak a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds and a handful of almonds as well.  The almonds are an ideal mid-morning snack for me.  Along with this, I sometimes have a cup of green tea or Chamomile tea. The tea helps greatly to control the hunger pangs until lunch time for me. Try this and see and let me know how this works out for you :)

Soaking almonds are easier to digest and is also a good source of folic acid.

Here are some benefits of consuming soaked almonds: Keeps the digestion in track; good for heart; helps in maintaining the good fats to bad fats ratio; controls hypertension; helps maintains a healthy weight.
