Sugar Free Kesar Peda

 Hmmm it's festival time means lots of sweet preparation at home, and sweets means loads and loads of calories and sugar. In today's scenario many of us are suffering from obesity, high blood pressure and diabetics. Doctors advise to stick to low carb and low GI food.Eating for diabetes doesn’t mean eliminating sugar. If you have diabetes, you can still enjoy a small serving of your favorite dessert now and then. The key is moderation.
 But maybe you have a sweet tooth and the thought of cutting back on sweets sounds almost as bad as cutting them out altogether. The good news is that cravings do go away and preferences change. As your eating habits become healthier, foods that you used to love may seem too rich or too sweet, and you may find yourself craving healthier options and one such option is using of Sugar Substitute products to make sweet.  My recipe Sugarfree Kesar Peda is dedicated to all those diabetic's friends who crave for sweet but can eat.
