Making delicious and easy diabetes recipes doesn't have to be expensive or take all day. Armed with a well-stocked kitchen and reliable, standby meal ideas, you can easily prepare a healthy, tasty meal in less than 30 minutes. Diabetes-friendly meals should have the following formula: Fill half your plate with non-starchy vegetables, a quarter of your plate with lean protein, and the final quarter with starchy foods. Add an 8-ounce glass of low-fat or fat-free milk and a piece of fruit, and dinner is done. The goal is to have a larger portion of non-starchy vegetables like greens, broccoli, and tomatoes, and a smaller portion of starchy foods. Starchy foods like whole-grain bread, rice, pasta and beans contain carbohydrates that can raise blood sugar levels. Once you have your portions in order, the options are endless. The next step to simplifying your diabetes meal routine is to plan ahead. Not only will it help you avoid the urge to pick up the phone and order delivery, it will also save you money.

Low Carb Guide To Healthy Eating With Diabetes

Low Carb Guide To Healthy Eating With Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has reached epidemic proportions. It currently affects over 400 million people worldwide (1). Although diabetes is a complicated disease, maintaining good blood sugar control can greatly reduce the risk of complications (2, 3). One of the ways to achieve better blood sugar levels is to follow a low-carb diet. This article provides a detailed overview of low-carb diets for managing diabetes. What is Diabetes, and What Role Does Food Play? If you have diabetes, your body cannot process carbohydrates effectively. Normally, when you eat carbs, they are broken down into small units of glucose, which end up as blood sugar. When blood sugar levels go up, the pancreas responds by producing the hormone insulin. This hormone allows the blood sugar to enter cells. In healthy people, blood sugar levels remain within a narrow range throughout the day. In diabetes, however, this system doesn’t work the way it is supposed to. This is a big problem, because having both too high and too low blood sugar levels can cause severe harm. There are several types of diabetes, but the two most common ones are type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Both of these conditions can be diagnosed at any age. In type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune process destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Diabetics must inject insulin several times a day to ensure that glucose gets into the cells and stays at a healthy level in the bloodstream (4). In type 2 diabetes, the beta cells at first produce enough insulin, but the body’s cells are resistant to its action, so blood sugar remains high. To compensate, the pancreas produces more insulin, attempting to bring blood sugar down. Over time, the beta cells lose their ability to produce enough insulin (5). Of the three nutrie Continue reading >>

Freezer Meal: Honey Orange Sesame Chicken And Broccoli

Freezer Meal: Honey Orange Sesame Chicken And Broccoli

Support and education for parents of children with type 1 diabetes, Sylvia White Dietitian and Diabetes Educator Freezer Meal: Honey Orange Sesame Chicken and Broccoli Freezer meals are awesome for those days when I am too busy with work, doctors appointments or a sports game and I get home late and wonder what I can cook. I need to get better at planning a menu each week, but I usually am last minute or think about what to cook in the afternoon. I try to keep some freezer meals handy for those last minute meals so we do not end up going out to eat, which is not healthy usually plus tough on the budget. I bought a large package of boneless chicken breasts recently and while I was packaging them into smaller freezer bags, I took 2 of the chicken breasts and went on made this Honey Orange Sesame Chicken meal in a freezer bag. Its super easy! You just dump the ingredients into the bag and freeze. The only thing that needs cutting is the onion and chicken. I keep a jar of minced garlic in the fridge so I used that instead of garlic cloves. To cook, I just set the frozen bag into a sink of warm/hot water and let it sit and thaw about 20-30 minutes. Heat up a skillet (I love my cast iron skillet, mainly because its non-stick after using so much so its easy to clean!) You can have any vegetable with it, I just decided Id throw a bag of broccoli in there to steam as it finished cooking. Serve over rice or another grain such as quinoa and enjoy a quick and healthy meal! Be sure to pin for later when you may be doing freezer meals and need easy ideas!

Diabetic Meals: 10 Healthy Soup And Chowder Recipes

Diabetic Meals: 10 Healthy Soup and Chowder Recipes There is something very satisfying about making your own homemade soup. The ingredients are fresh, the aroma fills the air as it simmers and, of course, you can brag about making a soup from scratch. Homemade soups will have more flavor and more nutrients than what comes from a can, and they don't need to rely on salt for taste. Some canned soups can contain close to 1000mg of sodium per cup. If you go out to eat and order soup, the sodium can be even worse. Thinking about ordering soup at Olive Garden? Their Chicken & Gnocchi Soup contains 1400mg of sodium per serving, the Zuppa Toscana contains 990mg and the Minestrone contains 840mg. The Pasta e Fagiole contains the least amount, with 620mg. They also contain between 15 to 24 grams of carbohydrate per serving. If you order a bowl of soup from Panera Bread, you'll find a whopping 1780mg of sodium in their Bistro French Onion Soup, 1390mg in their Broccoli Cheddar Soup, 1440mg in their Low-Fat All-Natural Chicken Noodle Soup and 1470mg in their Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. The Vegetarian Creamy Tomato Soup contains the least amount of sodium, with 680mg per bowl. Bowls of soup also provide between 24 and 31 grams of carbohydrate. If you happen to order a Panera "Bread Bowl" size soup, you'll be adding another 700mg of sodium! Bread bowl size soups can also contain up to 157 grams of carbohydrate per serving. This is not something you can incorporate into your diabetic meal plan. The collection of diabetic-friendly soup recipes featured below contain as few as 9 grams of carbohydrate per serving and as little as 115mg of sodium per serving.
