Several studies also show that the prevalence of diabetes is also high among South Asian migrant populations (Gujral et al 2013). And this is just diabetes, what about cancer, strokes and heart attacks?
People will say its hereditary and theres nothing they can do, but thats all the more reason to take control of the things – like food. These diseases come with so many complications, endless trips to the Doctors, life long medications, operations and loss of independence. Who wants that?
We want to help
It’s time to make the change. Eating healthy doesn’t mean you’re going to stop enjoying life. You adapt, make good choices that will impact the rest of your life and that of your family. Indian recipes can still be delicious, use the same spices we grew up with, just little tweaks here and there can make traditional recipes a little healthier. And a few little changes could mean big changes to your health and future.
We set up this website to inspire Asians, both young and old to make better decisions about food and health. Through Hatke Life we aim to help people along their health journey, to educate, raise awareness, encourage change and inspire people to live healthier lives.
