Is Corn Meal Bad For High Blood Sugar?

Is Corn Meal Bad For High Blood Sugar?

Q: Hi could you please tell me if corn meal is in the same category as white flour? My husband has high blood sugar and is eating only whole wheat, but we do enjoy cornbread. - Barbara A: Cornmeal has a glycemic index score of 69, the same as whole wheat bread. This score is considered to be a little high, meaning that if cornmeal is eaten on its own, it will cause blood sugar levels to rise quickly. Most cornbread recipes include sugar (on average, 2/3 cup), which considerably raises the glycemic score. Your husband can enjoy a small slice of cornbread occasionally, as long as it's part of a meal that is balanced with fiber and protein - half a cup of beans, some avocado and chicken will do the trick.

Had A Corn Muffin And Paid For It

Had A Corn Muffin And Paid For It

I have been known to eat something I shouldn't and then get upset when my #'s soar. Today with breakfast out I had to have a yummy looking corn muffin. I knew I shouldn't but I was weak minded. Anyway I went to a boardwalk fair in extreme heat here on Long Island and thought.....hmmmm my bs will go down because I walked off the bs. Usually that does it - but when I got home I was 210. I flipped out. I know I deserved it but normally after a cheat, and then with some walking my numbers go lower. Today not. But weirdly enough, after I lied down for a while I took the bs again and I was at 124. Could you explain how this happened? I was sure I was still going to be in the 200's. Thanks. And btw, you could yell at me for the corn muffin. I have already yelled at myself but I know it could happen again D.D. Family Getting much harder to control Most likely it had sugar, corn and then grain. If I have ever tried that in the past I get well into the 200s even if I use insulin. Those are just to hard to judge whats in it other than the ingredients but how much of what. How long did you lay down, its possible that might have been long enough to have a lower reading. Same thing happened to me last Thanksgiving when I made cornbread pudding. I just had to eat some knowing what corn or anything to do with corn does to my sugar but it was good. So good. First of all don't blame yourself. It is the diabetes. I know on vacation I was away from my normal low carb kitchen. So I had to eat whatever I could at breakfast buffets. So I found myself eating yogurts and even a croissant here and there. I also walked all over the place, probable 5-10 miles a day but my bgs were still high, especially my morning bgs. I would gather the reason your bgs came down was because your Phase 2 insulin Continue reading >>

Low Carb Keto Cornbread

Low Carb Keto Cornbread

This corn bread has no corn, but is still amazingly good alongside chili or soup (and it's yellow)! And at only .6 net carbs per serving (that is a POINT 6, less than 1 gram!) it won't have a large impact to your carb count for the day. The green onions provides a great flavor and some moisture, but chives would also be good! muffin pans my favorite brand is USA pans they are well made and nothing sticks to them Kitchenaid stand mixer when I make these for a crowd I use this instead! sometimes I use bacon grease in place of the butter yummy if you don't have sour cream on hand you could use yogurt or cream cheese (full fat) leave out the green onions to make this the lowest carbs possible, or just for quickness. But they really do add good flavor. Add a 1/2 sugar equivalent of your favorite low carb sweetener to make this a dessert treat instead of savory This corn bread has no corn, but is still amazingly good alongside chili or soup! You can also add a 1/2 cup of grated cheddar to the mix - but please note it will add slightly to the carb count In a bowl, mix the sour cream, softened butter, eggs and green onions.

My Temptation Du Jour

My Temptation Du Jour

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. I hate being tempted by food. I've eaten very low carb (20-30gms/day) for the last 3 weeks. I've lost 12 lbs so far. Now to the temptation. I work in a doctor's office and we get a lot of drug-rep lunches. Today's is especially trying for me. It's that time of month, i'm in hormone he!!, and what do they bring????? CRACKER BARRELL. For those of you not familiar with it, it's a "country-cookin'" restaurant that's pretty popular in the south. Of course I brought my lunch...but smelling all this food makes my can of tuna, s/f jello, cucumbers and cheese about as appealing as an old sneaker. My office is near the lunchroom....amazing how much you want something after you've smelled it for a couple of hours. So.....intervention time my friends, intervention time! Wish I were like so many of you, with will power of steel...but I miss so much of this stuff....even after 4 years (yes, that's self-pity you're hearing;) ). Ok, it does not helps, but makes you laugh, uh? Remember, we are what we eat. So with that said, this is a condensced version of what they are based on the lunch you described: Hashed, disguised mystery meat of unknown origins, enough fried fat to put the BP spill to shame, with enough sugar for a 3rd world country. Yummy!!! (NOT!!!) Stick to the fresh, healthy food and be the fresh, healthy person you are PrincessLinda. Let the others deal with the cardiac rest, blocked arteries, and the growing obesity. Thanks Doug....I will be strong and do what I need to do. I pass a Cracker Barrell most days, and if we do go there, they do have plenty of lower carb options. I'm just having one o Continue reading >>

Hot Water Cornbread - Southern Bite

Hot Water Cornbread - Southern Bite

Cornbread is just a staple in the South. There arent many meals that arent perfectly complementedby a golden brown skilletof it. That said, we do have our variations. And Hot Water Cornbread is one of them. We Southerners do fried cornbread several ways. My mama always made what she called Fried Cornbread which was a most deliciouscornbread made with cornmeal and buttermilk that you simply fried. It was a constant alongside homemade vegetablesoup and often made an appearance beside chili too. Its also great to pile some greensor beans right on top of. This is another variation, which produces a little bit lighter textured bread. Now, there are 100 different ways to do this. Some recipes call for you to make a thick dough and form it in your hands before frying. I think this methodwith a pourable battereasier, neater, and I like the crispy exterior better. The recipe calls for self-rising cornmeal. Thats what my mama has always used, sothats what I use. However I realize its not readily available across the country (and dare I say world), so Ive added a note to the recipe on how to makeyour own. Yall enjoy! Continue reading >>

Diet Tips For Diabetics With Kidney Disease

Diet Tips For Diabetics With Kidney Disease

Diet tips for diabetics with kidney disease Diet is one of the most important treatments in managing diabetes and kidney disease. If you have been diagnosed with kidney disease as a result of diabetes, youll need to work with a dietitian to create an eating plan thats right for you. This plan will help manage your blood glucose levels and reduce the amount of waste and fluid your kidneys process. Your dietitian will set the amount of daily calories you should consume. This will be further broken down into the right amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates your body needs, at the same time lowering the amounts of sodium, potassium, phosphorus and fluids you will eat. This may sound complicated, but here are some tips to help you get the most out of your eating plan. Your dietitian will give you specific nutritional guidelines to follow. Not only will these instructions tell you how much protein, fat and carbohydrate you can eat, these instructions will tell you how much potassium, phosphorus and sodium you can have each day. Because your diet needs to be lower in these minerals, youll be limiting or avoiding certain foods, while carefully planning your meals from the food choices recommended by your dietitian. Read food packages carefully and make notes in your food diary. Patients are sometimes surprised at the amounts of hidden sodium in seemingly healthy choices like soup and low-fat frozen entrees. Popular diet colas, some teas and lemonades have sodium as well as phosphorus. Keeping track of this information can help you plan your meals faster and make better choices when you eat out, because youll know what you can safely eat. Portion control is also important. Your dietitian will talk to you about the importance of serving size. Sometimes a patient eats what he Continue reading >>

Is Corn A Bad Food To Eat With Diabetes?

Is Corn A Bad Food To Eat With Diabetes?

If you are diabetic, well-meaning friends or family might have warned you away from corn as a starchy, carbohydrate-rich food you shouldn't eat. But corn offers plenty of nutritional benefits that make it worth the extra effort to include it as part of a balanced diabetic diet. The trick to including corn in your eating plan is to balance it with sources of protein and fat that can mitigate the effect of carbohydrate-rich foods on blood glucose levels. Video of the Day People with diabetes can't properly process glucose and use it for energy. Instead, their production or use of insulin, the hormone responsible for converting glucose to fuel, is hampered, leading to episodes of extremely high blood sugar levels. A diagnosis of diabetes typically requires a blood glucose level of 200 mg/dL or more during a random test or one over 126 mg/dL after an eight-hour fast. Over 23 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, according to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse. Carbohydrates can cause blood sugar to rise, so diabetics typically have to pay close attention to the carbohydrates in their diet. This can be done through counting carbohydrates and limiting the specific amount allowed per meal, by using an exchange system to swap out specific carbohydrate-containing foods with others or by using the glycemic index, a measure of blood sugar response to specific carbohydrate-containing foods. Corn is high in starch, a type of carbohydrate that can quickly raise blood sugar levels. This doesn't mean that as a diabetic you need to completely forgo corn, however. Corn contains plenty of healthy nutrients, including iron, vitamins A and B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and selenium. It also provides a high level of fiber and is c Continue reading >>

Totally Addictive Cornbread

Totally Addictive Cornbread

This healthy cornbread iscompletely flourless! If you were to peek inside the kitchen pantry of my childhood, I guarantee youd find at least one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix. Although we rarely ate packaged foods (my mom preferred to cook from scratch), the Jiffy mix was an exception. Now that Im grown up and living on my own, I havent bought Jiffy in years. The mix is neither healthy nor vegan. (One of the main ingredients is hydrogenated lard!) However, I craved it when I made my Sweet Potato Chili . With temperatures dipping into the 20s, last week was a perfect time toexperiment and create a healthy cornbread recipe. I went through three trials before coming up with the recipe below, which was a huge hit. My roommate describes it as being totally, totallyaddictive. The best cornbread recipe ever. If you make this healthy cornbread, I hope youll feel the same way! 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice or regular sugar (I like my cornbread southern-style, with zero sweetness, so I like to omit this. But everyone else who tried the recipe preferred the sweetened version. Id recommend leaving it in, especially if youre making this recipe for the first time.) 1 and 1/2 packets NuNaturals stevia (or 2 moretbsp sugar) 2tbsp coconut or canola/veg oil (see nutrition link below, for a fat-free option) Healthy Cornbread Recipe: Mix the vinegar with the milk, and set aside. Combine dry ingredients and mix very well. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, applesauce, corn (pulverized if you wish), and milk-vinegar. Then pour the wet into dry and mix until just mixed. Pour into a greased 88 dish and cook at 420 F (preheated) for about 25 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before trying to cut, or it will crumble. (Side note: true southern cornbread is supposed to be crumbly. If you pre Continue reading >>

The Ultimate Healthy Cornbread {recipe Video!}

The Ultimate Healthy Cornbread {recipe Video!}

An easy recipe for classic cornbread with a healthy makeover! Lightly sweetened, perfectly tender & absolutely guilt-free! Although most of my family looks forward to the side dishes more than the turkey on Thanksgiving (especially this healthy sweet potato casserole it tastes like pumpkin pie!), the exact opposite scenario occurs with our main entre at Christmas. Nearly every year, we purchase a honey baked ham from a specialty shop in town, along with an assortment of chutneys and stone ground mustards. We typically cut a few slices to serve the day before as part of celebrating my grandparents wedding anniversary (yes, they were married on Christmas Eve!), but we save the majority of the ham for our regular Christmas dinner. Everyone reaches for those thick, juicy slices first, as well as the condiments, before turning their attention to the platters of sides. Even with everyone sneaking into the fridge for a few extra nibbles in between meals throughout the next few days, licking the sweet honey evidence from their fingers to avoid getting caught, we still end up with leftovers. However, Mom always plans ahead and buys a special artisan package of dried beans from the store when she picks up the ham. When everyone proclaims theyre done, she adds the rest of the ham to a big pot, along with the contents of the package and an ample amount of water, to make ham bone and bean soup. While it simmers, it fills the house with the coziest savory smell, causing everyone to ask, Is it done yet? Occasionally, Mom whips up a batch of cornbread while the soup cooks. She usually follows the directions from one of our old well-worn cookbooks or on the back of the box of cornmeal, both of which depend on large amounts of oil and sugar for their moist texture. Its a good thing we u Continue reading >>

How To Make Healthy Cornbread

How To Make Healthy Cornbread

By:Hilary Meyer | Thursday, August 22, 2013 Our healthy cornbread recipe is moist and delicious but has whole grains and less sugar than most versions. Learn the tricks we use to make cornbread healthy. If youre a fan of sweet cornbread but dont want an overload of added sugar, then give this recipe a try. We cut the sugar nearly in half compared to a boxed version. But its still plenty sweet thanks to a touch of honey and the natural sweetness of fresh corn kernels, which also help to boost fiber and keep it delectably moist. See for yourself. We think it stacks up pretty well. This whole-grain cornbread recipe is quick enough for a weeknight. Serve the leftovers with a drizzle of honey for a treat or in the morning with scrambled eggs for breakfast. If you dont want to pull out your food processor, you can skip pureeing the corn in Step 2 and instead whisk an 8-ounce can of creamed corn with the egg, milk, oil and sugar before combining with the dry ingredients. While convenient, many boxed cornbread mixes contain partially hydrogenated fat and/or oil and plenty of salt. When you make a batch of our bread, whisk together enough dry mix for a triple or quadruple recipe and keep it on hand in your freezer. For each batch of bread, combine 2 cups dry mix with the liquid ingredients. Pureed corn kernels do three things in this recipe: they replace some of the butter to slash saturated fat while keeping the bread ultra-moist, they add fiber and they infuse the bread with a naturally sweet corn flavor. To add 2 grams of fiber per serving to this tender cornbread versus a traditional recipe, use whole-grain cornmeal instead of traditional yellow cornmeal and white whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose white flour. Look for whole-grain cornmeal in the natural-foods sectio Continue reading >>

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix

design Food , May 25, 2005 11:56 PM 53 comments American designer Richard Bird held a contest on his website to identify a logo. I didn't guess correctly, but he still sent 10 responders a package of Jiffy Mix in the mail. I made corn muffins with it. I was wondering where this little cube parcel on my doorstep came from yesterday. Was I buying stuff on Amazon again? But no, it was the Jiffy Mix from Richard Bird (of R.Bird & Company ) that I forgot about. I'm not the only one to get this impressively-packed (including a signed letter of greeting and multiple layers of bubble wrap!) package: 10 other people around the world who had replied to R.Bird's post about the Jiffy brand logo got two boxes of the mix in the mail. R.Bird loves Jiffy and wants you to as well. So I mixed up a batch with the girlfriend tonight. Add an egg and some milk, a little oven-action and we had fresh corn muffins with our BBQ chicken, tomatoes, potatoes and zucchini, in the sun on the front porch. They're pretty damn good (crumbly, a little sweet), especially straight from the oven with butter. I always think of the Grapes of Wrath when I think of corn bread, of big dinners, sopping up the rest of your soup or stew with a big chunk of it, cup of coffee to wash it down, all after a full day of farm labour (well, I had a short day of Illustrator and HTML). I'll take your suggestion tomorrow, Richard, and try them stale, crumbled, with syrup on top. Thanks for the gift, it went to good use tonight and I'll be passing the extra box onto a worthy (hungry) friend. Continue reading >>

Southern Cornbread | Diabetic Connect

Southern Cornbread | Diabetic Connect

A simple, gluten-free version of southern cornbread. 2 cups blanched almond flour (not almond meal) In a food processor combine almond flour, flax meal, baking soda, and salt Transfer batter to a greased 8" cast iron skillet evaziem - just for you being a negative Nancy I am making it and I am going to post a picture of me eating it with a 1 finger salute to you But, you know, if this WAS a scoop of ice cream instead of a tsp of butter, it would sure add another carb or two to that hunk of cornbread!! =) That's not a scoop of ice cream, it's butter! I substitute almond meal for flour when I make this and it makes it more of a low carb dish. I also use buttermilk instead of skim milk. If it is too crumbly you could add a tbsp or two of flour to help hold it together better. Not being American I might be missing something here. The only time I have made and eaten cornbread is with Mexican food but this picture looks like it has a scoop of ice cream on the plate. Am I lost or is this the way I should be using cornbread?

Excellent And Healthy Cornbread

Excellent And Healthy Cornbread

This is a simple recipe with delicious results.I added 1/2 cup liquid honey, next time I'll add just 1/4 cup as it was a little too sweet. It held well together and was great with baked beans... Excellent cornbread! I added 1 Tbsp. of oil and 2 Tbsp. of honey, which still kept it lowfat and made it taste even better. The texture is not crumbly and cake-like but is firmer and denser. It has an excellent flavor and is perfectly moist. It's especially good with fat-free margarine and/or honey. I will make this ... This tastes the best warm from the oven. I love the light texture and good corn flavor. Using yogurt with fruit inside gives it added interest and sweetness. Thanks for the fun recipe! Excellent cornbread! My whole family loved it. It was even better than my old recipe that used 1/2 c. oil. Thanks for a great low-fat recipe Maria! These were very good for being healthy. It is little drier than I would like but you can't have everything, right? Wow! I'm originally from SC so I'm kinda picky about my cornbread...Mama and Granmama were great cornbread makers. I needed to use up some plain yogurt to I tried this recipe. The only changes I... I made this late last night to use for johnny cake this morning......it is absoulutely yummy, not too sweet and with a good corn flavor. I will make this very often.Thanks for the great recipe! I made this with greek yogurt because it was what I had one hand. The batter was way too thick and the first batch came out very dry. The second time I used greek yogurt with about 1/4 cup milk ...
