Diet and Gall bladder stones
Recently a client from Sydney joined with Nutrisolutions after a gallbladder stone surgery and we suggested a diet which helped to maintain better health and overall wellness. As a nutritionist and dietitian, I was just trying to understand the general pattern of diet followed. But he was found to have a normal diet with a bit more carbohydrates than what he exactly needs as a sedentary worker. Maybe the excess of calories converted to fat and get stored in the system, which might have served as one of the major causes of high triglycerides level. This happens in many clients even though they are not taking a high-fat diet. Each person is different and their daily needs also varies. In most cases I just look into their emotions and childhood trauma or the relationships which affect them and the more pain or grudge towards the self or during the growing age could be an impact and inner child healing trauma relaxes the stomach .
Recently a few cases came with IBS and other intestinal disorders who had a lot of emotional and various kinds of abuse during childhood. So an overall analysis may help even though many of them are unaware of these minute things which actually affects the health, mind, and emotional layers. The book which I published on Diet and Emotions gives a better idea about the impact of various emotions on our health and how it affects various organs. Meditation is really helping my clients to heal their PCOS and various psychosomatic illness.
If it is food, go for a normal balanced diet according to your age and work or metabolism. I recommend foods that are high in fiber, such as fruits, vegetables, beans, and pulses. Reduce refined carbohydrates and less sugar and go for complex carbohydrates like rice-based ones. Eat healthy fats, like coconut oil, fish oil, and olive oil, in limits to help your gallbladder to contract and empty regularly. Avoid unhealthy fats, like those often found in desserts and fried foods.
Drink enough water and it helps in overall wellness and better mind or utilization of water-soluble vitamins and finds the type of stone. Each kind of stone has a specific diet to be followed. Regular follow-up is essential to understand the condition.

Healthy tender coconut pudding recipe
- I just love to have “tender #coconut pudding “ even though I never cook any dessert or cakes at home. But whenever we go out, I love to order this soothing dessert. I think in a place like Kerala with lots of coconuts 🌴 this could be our “signature dessert “ to offer like Neera our signature drink with lots of nutrients. It’s a good idea to promote local produce anywhere in the world, which is easily available, low cost and after all, it suits our gene and memories 😊😊😊
Coconut pudding recipe
Add a can of condensed milk and milk cream (can use Amul ) in a bowl. Also, add a cup of full-fat milk and a teaspoon of real vanilla extract.
Whisk all the ingredients well to combine. Bring the mixture to boil. When it comes to a mere boil, remove from heat and set aside. Soak 5 grams of agar (china grass) in one cup of water for 5 minutes. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer till the china grass is melted. Strain and add to the pudding mixture.
Add in the tender coconut meat to the pudding mixture.
Pour it in ramekins and let it set in the fridge for 4 hours. Serve cold.🤩

Gluten-free Breakfast Recipe for your diet – Dosa & Sambar
This is a quick video made on a working day just before going to the office. Correct me if any mistakes!! Any food that is easily available and healthy with timely plan everything matters, here it is this and in other parts of the world it’s different, but look for carb and protein combinations, which is better!!
Most days I prefer iddli or dosa with sambar or Bengal gram curry. Gluten-free complex carbohydrates with vegetarian protein, good for the gut, maintaining blood sugar level and nervous system.
Amongst Indian foods, the South-Indian cuisine is also a rich source of probiotics. Idly, dosa and other such food items are prepared by fermenting rice and lentils. This makes it high in live cultures of the good bacteria.
Dosa & sambar recipe for my clients and friends abroad!
3 cups rice
1 cup urad dal (split, skinless black gram)
3/4 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
Soak it in water for 3-4 hours and grind to a smooth paste ( if iddli medium) and ferment it for 6-8 hours. Then make is like a pancake with vegetable oil.
Sambar is easy to cook with all vegetables and some sambar dal / tuvar dal
Cook dal and mash it with boiled vegetables until half cooked and add tamarind water to it.
Cook for 5 minutes, add sambar powder and salt, cook for 5 minutes. Add dal, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Prepare the tempering by using 2-3 tbsp of oil and adding 1 1/2tsp of mustard seeds, half a tsp of methi dana, a crushed dried red chill, few curry leaves and a pinch of asafoetida. Let it splutter and add to the sambar mix.
