Chili Is A Recipe Loaded With Diabetes Fighting Ingredients!

Chili is one of my favorite cold weather foods. Besides tasting great and warming you up on a cold day, almost every ingredient in chili has health benefits. Here is my family's favorite recipe. It's easy and good for you too! 1 lb lean ground beef, browned and drained 2 cans kidney beans rinsed and drained 2 cans tomatoes 1 medium to large onion chopped 1 green pepper chopped 2 cloves garlic crushed 2-3 tablespoons chili powder 1 teaspoon pepper 1 teaspoon cumin salt to taste My favorite way to cook chili is in the crock pot and often I do soups overnight because I cook the ground beef, onions and garlic and then throw everything in the crock pot while I am cooking another dinner. That way I cook two meals at once. When I get up in the morning I turn it off, let it cool and before I go out the door put it in the fridge. All that's left is to heat it up for supper in the evening! The health benefits of chili for diabetes are numerous. Kidney beans are one of the best food sources of fiber providing almost half our daily requirement. Even though the beans are carbohydrate the fiber slows down the blood sugar rise after the meal. Kidney beans also have 57% of our daily need for folat Continue reading >>

    I have made a big pot of ratatouille and thrown in a tin of kidney beans. I will, of course, test test test and try to slow it down with cheesey cauli mash.
    They have crazy carbs! Been reading on here about "resistant starch" but I don't understand a word of it
    Could someone please explain, in simple terms, what resistant starch means and whether eating kidney beans as part of a LCHF diet is a daft idea?
    Thanks

    I doubt any of us could explain it better than Wikipedia does:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resistant_starch
    I don't know that canned kidney beans contain all that much resistant starch though - the reference table I have shows them to be fairly minimal compared to some other sources.

    Click to expand... A carb is a carb, and contrary to what my DAFNE trainer stated, it will raise BG just like any other carb. I use a small tin of kidney beans in homemade chilli. I make 4 or 5 portions of chilli, so maybe a quarter to fifth of a small tin per portion. There's about 24g carb in a small tin of 'no added sugar' kidney beans, so about 6g in my portion of chilli - I'd jab half to one unit rapid-acting for that, so easily doable within my 50g carbs a day routine. Whether it's a good idea or not probably depends how many you're going to eat!
    Incidentally, if you're reading the carb content from the side of the tin, you need to deduct the liquid from the overall weight and work the carbs out on the drained contents. You probably know that, but it catches a lot of people out!
