We have made changes with the badge of DFT! It is more self describing and stands in support of our DFT Chapter.
The Blue Circle on the top is the Universal Blue Circle Symbol for Diabetes, also known as Diabetes mellitus !
The Food Triangle shown at the bottom part of the badge, is the “suggested” food triangle for a diabetic!

The recipes chosen for World Diabetes month are:
TriColor Paneer Tikkas– I have made them in 3 different flavors, Tandoori, Malai and Mint. Can be served as an appetizer or can be eaten along with the main meal.
Chanaa Chaat– This chaat is tangy which will tickle your tastebuds and very easy to prepare. This recipe can be eaten as an appetizer or a salad.
Barley Soup– Wholesome soup which can be a meal in itself. A good choice when you want to limit your calorie intake especially at night.
Veggie Quesadillas– Flavorful meal with grilled veggies, sauces and cheese all combined together and served with hot salsa and sour cream.
Veg Chili– Protein packed meal made with a mixture of beans for a cold wintery night with flavors of garlic, cumin and oregano.
