I'm both diabetic and a high cholesterol patient. Can you suggest Indian vegetarian foods (nothing non-veg) for my diet chart?

You can have lots of non-starchy veggies rich in fiber and phytonutrients. Examples: beans, beets, turnips, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, garlic, green onions, mushrooms, onions, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc. A high amount of soluble fiber is also found in many fruits and whole grains like oats, apples, strawberries, grapefruit, lemons, barley, peas, lentils, rice bran, etc. Soluble fiber helps control blood sugar as well as LDL or bad cholesterol. Also, you need to opt for foods containing monounsaturated fats like peanut butter/oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, apricots, guavas, avocadoes, olive oil, walnuts, etc. over those containing saturated fats like full-fat dairy, red meats or trans fats like cookies, muffins, pies, cakes, pizza, coffee creamer, fried foods, etc.
