10 Diabetes Breakfast Mistakes To Avoid

10 Diabetes Breakfast Mistakes To Avoid

I once went to see a friend who has diabetes. Her table was laid out with a wonderful breakfast for the both of us. However, it didn’t look too much like a breakfast a diabetic should be eating. There were carbs, carbs, and more carbs. To me it was a dream, but my thought for her was, “oh geeze, her blood sugar!” It seems innocent enough that we were having; croissants, jam, fruit, and array of fresh juices. For most people, this is a very healthy start. For diabetics, it is missing one key item that will help stall the burn of all those carbs – protein!” Here you will see biggest diabetes breakfast mistakes you’re probably making and you didn’t know you were doing it. Don’t make these breakfast mistakes to keep your blood sugar stable. At the end I have also included list of some commonly asked questions about diabetes breakfast. 1. Skipping Protein When you eat carbohydrates alone, they are digested quickly causing spikes in your blood sugar levels. When paired with a protein, they bind together and take longer to digest and burn up. If you have a bowl of cereal and toast, eat an egg with it. Fruit with Yogurt. Pancakes with Sausage. In a hurry? Just add Peanut Butter to your toast! 2. Smoothies on the Run Smoothies make you feel great! No doubt a good smoothie gives you a rush to get you going, but turns out its mostly a sugar rush. Make sure to check our 8 best smoothies for people with diabetes. Add a scoop of protein powder to slow the burn. Drink a smoothie and nibble a hardboiled egg. Skip the smoothie and have a bowl of oatmeal with some bacon! 3. Not Eating Breakfast You may have been fine without breakfast before diabetes, but after you are diagnosed you may not be anymore. People who skip breakfast actually have higher blood sugars during the Continue reading >>

Top 10 Worst Foods For Diabetes

Top 10 Worst Foods For Diabetes

These foods can can cause blood sugar spikes or increase your risk of diabetes complications. Pancakes and Syrup A plate of pancakes with syrup is a total carb explosion and one of the absolute worst breakfast choices for someone with diabetes. Most pancakes are jumbo-sized and made with junky white flour, so downing a stack of three large flapjacks can be the equivalent of eating seven slices of white bread! Of course, the toppings make matters worse. Butter is loaded with artery-clogging saturated fat, and a typical half-cup pour of gooey pancake syrup adds 16 teaspoons of straight sugar to your breakfast! This starch-and-sugar overload will send your blood sugars into a tailspin (not to mention, help you pack on the pounds). Next time you’re at a diner, bypass the pancakes and instead order a low-carb, protein-rich egg white omelet stuffed with vegetables. Continue reading >>

Diabetic | Top Chef Meals

Diabetic | Top Chef Meals

High carbohydrate liquids can quickly raise blood sugar levels. Strictly limit fruit juice and regular sodas. Diet drinks and other beverages with artificial sweeteners won't raise your blood sugar levels. Fruit juice is high in natural sugars. Eight ounces of natural fruit juice, without added sugar, has the same amount of sugar as 8 ounces of regular soda, about 6 teaspoons of sugar. Eat fruit instead of drinking fruit juice. Milk and yogurt have a natural sugar called lactose. Choose the healthier nonfat or low-fat versions. Cheese has a trace of carbohydrate but is high in fat. Choose reduced fat cheese, such as 2 percent fat, low-fat or nonfat cheese. Fruit is naturally sweet so limit yourself to one serving of fruit at a time. A serving, for example, is one small apple or orange; half of a large banana; or one cup of cubed melon. Choose fresh fruit, unsweetened frozen fruit or canned fruit packed in water or its own juice. Eat fruit, rather than drinking fruit juice. Eat foods made of whole grains, which are more nutritious, such as breads, brown and wild rice, cereals including oatmeal, millet, pasta, quinoa and tortillas. Limit highly refined grains, which are less nutritious, such as white bread and white rice, and processed cereals. Try to eat the same amount of carbohydrate at each meal. Eating too much at one time can cause blood sugar levels to spike. Desserts tend to be high in carbohydrates and high in fat. Limit portion sizes. Sources of liquid sugar include juices, smoothies, sodas, sports drinks and sweetened coffees and teas. Liquid carbohydrates are rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and can raise blood sugar levels quickly. Small amoounts of these beverages may be tolerated when your glucose levels are under control and you plan on being active Continue reading >>

8 Foods That Are Off-limits For Type 2 Diabetes

Foods That Don't Belong in Your Diabetes Diet One of the most essential steps to avoiding complications from type 2 diabetes is managing your diet, says William Sullivan, MD, a senior physician at Joslin Diabetes Center and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Sausage Gravy Loaves And Dishes

Sausage Gravy Loaves And Dishes

Hello Friends! What will you fix on this coming COLD Saturday morning? You realize we are in apolar vortex, right? Do you want to join me and be a little bad? Not a LOT bad just a little bad? Yeah, I thought so. Gravy. Sausage Gravy. Today I am going to share one of my OLDEST recipes. It might be old but its not tired. Im not exaggerating here my ENTIRE family asks for this sausage gravyevery time we are together. We eat it for breakfast and then take a little nap until lunch. This sausage gravyis ALSO an man keeper. Want to work your way to a mans heart right through his belly? This sausage gravyis for you. I PROMISE that the man in your life will love you forever for fixing this sausage gravy. I was disheartened when I saw a very famous TV chef making MY sausage gravy recipe on TV recently but I promise this has been my recipe for about 25 years. This sausage gravy recipe was given to me by someone who I admire very much. Many years ago I had a home health patient who was second level famous. This patient had been the lifetime personal assistant to someone who is SO FAMOUS that if I mentioned the name right now everyone reading this would know who I am talking about. Everyone. On this particular day, after I finished my visit with my home health patient, the patient said, I feel like some sausage gravy do you want some? I thanked my patient and said I had other patients to visit so I needed to go. I then commented that I am a terrible gravy maker, so I wish I could stay, I would love to learn. My patient said, Well, come back when you are done working this evening and Ill show you how! We can have dinner together. Breaking all conventions of medicine and crossing all kinds of professional boundaries, I returned. I really wanted to learn to make gravy! I did go to the Continue reading >>

Skinny Biscuits And Gravy With Whole-wheat Sage Biscuits

Skinny Biscuits And Gravy With Whole-wheat Sage Biscuits

Skinny Biscuits and Gravy with Whole-Wheat Sage Biscuits Its day six of my, no white flour diet, and shockingly Im doing pretty well. Its not nearly as hard as I thought, although sadly, thats most likely attributed to my sneaky substitutions and not my fierce willpower. For example, last Friday we went to dinner with our friends and proceeded to order spinach dip with chips because I can have corn chips if theres no flour, right? I also opted out of the low-fat couscous salad for a side, and instead ordered french fries again, because there was no flour. My practicality is mind-blowing, isnt it? And while these substitutions may be legal in the eyes of lent, it still kind of feels like cheating to me. Which is why now, Im taking the, no white flour, mantra, a bit further by cutting back on those so called substitutions, especially ones that include the word, chips and fried. In all honesty, I think I was probably making myself fatter instead of skinnier; its astonishing how easily I can convince myself oil-laden foods are a good thing to eat. BUT! Contrary to what these pictures infer, these biscuits and gravy are actually a substitution that doesnt make me feel like a cheater. Theyre low in fat, 100% whole-wheat, full of flavor and a fraction of the fat and calories my typical biscuits and sausage gravy has. I was actually hesitant to even share these today because, well, theyre biscuits and gravy, and arent exactly as glamorous or as beautiful as some of the other recipes Ive got tucked up my sleeve. BUT these are very near and dear to my heart, biscuits and gravy is what I grew up eating, and is actually one of the very first meals I learned to make as a kid. I guess you could say its been a part of my culinary journey, and aside from Eggs Benedict, its my absolute Continue reading >>

Diabetic Treatment Alternatives

Diabetic Treatment Alternatives

Until there is a cure, we are all about reversing the damage your diabetes has done! by diabetictreatmentalternatives in Uncategorized Biscuits in gravy has been one of the most often missed things since I became a diabetic and I have tried several different recipe hacks to make a version that was both delicious and diabetic-friendly. The traditional ones use flour and milk, which both have a bunch of carbs. This recipe has zero carbs. Thats right, zero. Not counting the water, it is only 4 ingredients. And it has the taste and consistency I learned to love before being dxd! Cut a 1 lb. tube of your favorite sausage in half. Crumble up in a medium size saucepan. Brown sausage over medium heat. Make sure you get all the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Those crunchies are just bursting with flavor. Once browned, to up the fat content add 1 tbl of grass fed butter. Mix up well. Add one tsp of Guar Gum and stir in well as you would flour. This is the thickening agent. A little of this goes a long way. Reduce heat to simmer. In a a 2 cup measuring cup, add 1 cup purified water and 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream and stir up well. Slowly pour contents into the sauce pan, using a whisk to keep it from sticking. Simmer until the gravy has thickened to your satisfaction. (as you refine the recipe for yourself you may want to reduce the water to make it thicken quicker. I like to thicken it slowly, allowing time for the sausage flavor to transfer and for me to fine tune the salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and immediately serve! by diabetictreatmentalternatives in Uncategorized Who misses biscuits? That has been one of my most missed things since being dxd as a diabetic. I have tried the Golden Flax (mild, wacky flavor), Coconut Flour (too cakey), and Almond Flour ( Continue reading >>
