Which Dish Is Healthier When I Have Diabetes?

Which Dish is Healthier When I Have Diabetes? Posted by ADW Diabetes | Aug 7, 2015 | Diet & Nutrition , Health & Wellness | 0 | Deciding the right foods to eat when you have diabetes can be a challenge. Some foods that sound healthy could be packed with fat, sugar, salt and unwanted calories. Discover which dish is healthier when you have diabetes to make the smartest choices at home and when you dine out. People with diabetes should never skip breakfast since it can cause blood sugar fluctuations. The traditional breakfast of three eggs with cheese, two slices of white toast smothered in butter and jam, home- fry potatoes and pork sausage or bacon is loaded with fat, salt and calories. Simple changes can make this breakfast a healthier one such as a three egg white vegetable omelet with two slices of whole grain toast and a slice of Canadian bacon. Another healthy option is a bowl of steel cut oatmeal topped off with blueberries and a handful of walnuts. This will boost your energy with plenty of fiber, protein and antioxidants. Make sure to eat carbohydrates in proper meal portions which can be decided with a diabetes educator or dietitian. When lunch time arrives, most people reach for a sandwich. Eat less tuna and egg salad on white bread sandwiches, which tend to be loaded with whole fat mayonnaise. These can be made healthier by using fat-free mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato and whole grain bread. Another great choice is a turkey sandwich served on whole grain pita bread or in a wrap stuffed with vegetables for added fiber. Try to eliminate fried potato chips and soda which often comes with your meal. Add carrots and celery, a piece of fruit with a glass of water or a zero-calorie beverage. People with diabetes may need to fit snacks into their day to avoid blood sug Continue reading >>

Gluten-free Diets Are Not Actually Linked To Diabetes

Gluten-free Diets Are Not Actually Linked To Diabetes

In the pantheon of fad diets, there is perhaps none more hated on than gluten-free. And despite how annoying fad dieters are (if I hear one more person order a salad because they’re ‘gluten-free’ and then ask for croutons…), it’s not unreasonable to want to avoid foods that might possibly be bad for you. But is gluten actually bad for people who don’t have a problem with it? There’s no real evidence that avoiding gluten leads to tangible health benefits, assuming that you don’t have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity. But there also haven’t been many studies that actually asked that question—there’s just not much information out there. On Thursday we got some preliminary answers...kind of.

Their study size was massive—199,794 people—because they looked at data f Continue reading >>

Diabetes Nutrition: Eating Out When You Have Diabetes

Diabetes Nutrition: Eating Out When You Have Diabetes

Diabetes nutrition — Make restaurant meals a healthy part of your diabetes meal plan. If you have diabetes, eating out while sticking to your nutrition plan has gotten easier. Many restaurants offer healthy alternatives. And you can plan what you want to order by looking at menus online, some of which provide nutrition information. Using this resource, minding portion sizes and choosing food carefully can help you make restaurant meals part of your overall plan for diabetes nutrition. Keep portion sizes in check Restaurants tend to serve large portions, possibly double or more what you normally eat. Try to eat the same size portions you would if you were eating at home by: Choosing the smallest meal size if the restaurant offers options: for example, a lunch-sized entree Sharing meals with a dining partner or two Requesting a take-home container Making a meal out of a salad or soup and an appetizer Avoid "all you can eat" buffets. It can be difficult to resist overeating with so many options. Even a small amount of many foods on your plate can add up to a lot of calories. Make substitutions Don't settle for what comes with your sandwich or meal. Instead of French fries, choose a diabetes-friendly side salad or a double order of a vegetable. Use fat-free or low-fat salad dressing, rather than the regular variety, or try a squeeze of lemon juice, flavored vinegar or salsa on your salad. Ask for salsa or pico de gallo, an uncooked salsa, with your burrito instead of shredded cheese and sour cream. On a sandwich, trade house dressings or creamy sauces for ketchup, mustard, horseradish or fresh tomato slices. Watch the extras Bacon bits, croutons, cheeses and other add-ons can sabotage diabetes nutrition goals by quickly increasing a meal's calories and carbohydrates. Even Continue reading >>

The Worst Salad Toppings (and What To Choose Instead)

The Worst Salad Toppings (and What To Choose Instead)

Tap here to turn on desktop notifications to get the news sent straight to you. 09/28/2015 11:06 am ETUpdatedDec 06, 2017 The Worst Salad Toppings (And What To Choose Instead) These options seem innocent but they're actually undermining your healthy meal. Why did the salad cross the road? To slather itself in the creamy dressings. And pack on the honey-glazed nuts. And, oh yeah, bask in the crunch of croutons. Eating a hearty salad can flood your cells with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals--until you turn it into a joke with a bunch of sneaky toppings that sabotage the nutritional value. To avoid these mistakes, read on for these bits of wisdom from top nutritionists. If you have a sweet tooth, it's easy to think dried fruit will both satisfy you while providing nutrition. But you should skip the Craisins or mango strips, explains Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, Plant-Based Dietitian, author of The Vegiterranean Diet and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition. "Dried fruit looses its water and turns calorie-dense in the dehydrating process," she says. "It also often contains added oils and sugars." The best swap: "For added sweetness in your salad, try fresh grapes, apples, or blueberries for a fiber-punch with less sugar," suggests Kayleen St.John, Nutritionist Kayleen St. John, RD, at New York City's Natural Gourmet Institute, a health-supportive culinary school. Of course, all fresh fruit--from everyday oranges to tropical pineapple--are welcome additions to salads since they're plentiful in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Make this today: Grilled Peach and Heirloom Tomato Salad You might think a sprinkling of salted nuts are fair game to swirl into your nutritious salad, but think again: "These are also typically roasted in unhealthy fats (rancid Continue reading >>

Strong With Diabetes Meal Plan #4

Strong With Diabetes Meal Plan #4

This week, Im introducing two delicious shakes and a healthy twist on breaded chicken to the meal plan. Just because we have diabetes doesnt mean that we cant eat super tasty food, right? The meals are light and delicious, and the shakes are cold and refreshing. I really think this is the perfect healthy meal plan for the first week of summer! Of course, if some of the meals in this plan dont work for you, you can always look at my other meal plans for substitutes. Mix and match as you like, just try to match the macros (carbs, protein, and fats) for each meal. If you have read StrongWith Diabetes Meal Plan #1 and know how to calculate your daily calorie need, you can skip the next section and go straight to the meal plan. We all have different calorie needs. Your daily calorie need depends on your size, fitness level, daily activity, gender, etc. When you are creating a healthy diabetes meal plan, your first step should therefore always be to calculate your calorie equilibrium, or how many calories you need each day to maintain your current weight. You can learn exactly how to find you calorie equilibrium with 5 easy steps in this post: How to Find Your Daily Calorie Need . Once you know your calorie equilibrium, you can adjust your daily calories up or down to meet your goals. If your goal is to lose weight, I recommend that you eat up to 500 calories less than your equilibrium each day (but no less than 1,200 per day). This should lead to a steady and healthy weight loss. If you want to gain muscle, start out by adding in 300-500 calories more than your equilibrium each day and see what happens. If you find that you are also putting on a little too much fat, decrease your calories slightly. Now that you know how to calculate your daily calorie need, you are ready to Continue reading >>

Low Carb Croutons | Wonderfully Made And Dearly Loved

With these Low Carb Croutons I dont have to miss out!! Can we get a YAY!!! I go through cycles where I want croutons and sometimes I dont. But these low carb croutons make me want to have them more often than not. Adding a bit of crunch to my salad and making it that much more satisfying. These low carb croutons were made with a batch of my simple soda bread with 2 TBS of Italian seasoning added to it before baking. The bread came out a bit too herby for my taste so I needed to find a way to not waste it. My friend Brenda from over at Texas Brew Salsa had messaged me a couple weeks ago about how she had made these Crunchy Croutons with my Basic Low Carb Yeast Bread and how wonderfully they had turned out for her. Check out those pretty little crunchy gems Either bread recipe will work for these and they are super easy to make and store. You could even just cube up a couple of slices and toast them in the oven, but for me making the entire loaf worked a bit better so that we have them on hand for a few meals. Brenda made her bread in a larger sheet pan so all she had to do was cube it and toast it. Super simple!! Continue reading >>

Caesar Salad With Gluten Free Nutty Croutons Recipe

Caesar Salad With Gluten Free Nutty Croutons Recipe

Caesar Salad with Gluten Free Nutty Croutons It has been a very long 6 weeks of preparing our garden for the summer season and now we are able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labours. There is still a few little jobs to do and of course general maintenance but now we are seeing grass coming up and our vegetable kitchen garden taking shape. I made sure I planted the herbs and vegetables that I use most when cooking and so far the bunnies have chosen not to demolish it. I think moving our garden closer to the house and having a crazy pooch about the yard has deterred them for now. In the garden I planted kale, spinach, radish, carrot, asparagus, sun choke and a truck load of tomatoes and peppers. I also have a dedicated area of beautiful herbs such as mint, rosemary, thyme, chives and basil. This will be the season of amazing salads if I play my cards right. This salad is a simple take on a regular caesar salad but with a great take on regular bread crumbs. They are made of nuts and fresh herbs so not only are they gluten free but they are much higher in protein and flavour. When processing the nuts be sure to whiz them well so you dont end up with big chinks. For the dressing I have suggested to use almond meal but if you feel ambitious you could opt to use whole raw almonds but they will have to be soaked for at lease 12 hours. This will give the dressing a lovely creamy texture. Caesar Salad with Gluten Free Nutty Croutons Recipe Calories: 282 | Protein: 9.2g | Fat: 23.8g | Carbs: 13.2g | Fibre: 6.3g | Continue reading >>

Great Snacks For Diabetics And How To Find Them

Great Snacks For Diabetics And How To Find Them

Great snacks for diabetics are out there. Use these rules to find some you like, and you can snack happy. Do you know why you need some rules? Because there are a million snack foods around, and most of them are not good for a type 2 diabetic. Take chips for an example of the empty calories in a lot of snack food. Besides their lack of food value, chips are a simple starch, which means they raise your blood sugar so fast you may as well be eating a candy bar. Most chips are made from corn or potatoes, both of which are high glycemic. Processed snack foods made from flour have the same problem. So crackers are not good snacks for diabetics either. When you read the label the calorie count seems good, but this is because the serving size is small. Since most crackers are processed grain, you are back in high glycemic territory. Besides, once you read the label for hidden sugar, you find it hidden in them. There is another problem too. Once you start eating crackers or chips you lose track of how many you ate. Snacking from a bag or box wrecks your calorie and carbohydrate count on a diabetes diet. But we diabetics are told it is a good idea to eat at least one snack, and the six meals a day plan is mostly snacking. So how do you eat snacks while keeping your blood sugar and weight loss on track? If you concentrate on the low and medium glycemic foods you will find a lot of great diabetic snacks. Know where your carbohydrate snacks fit on the glycemic index and then pick the best ones for diabetics. You will learn that white flour is high glycemic and wheat flour is not much better. But rye flour is lower on the glycemic index. Remember, you cannot trust labels. Read ingredients to make sure whole rye grain is first on the list, not wheat. Rye crackers make a good snack fo Continue reading >>

Salad Bars And Your Diabetic Meal Plan

Salad Bars And Your Diabetic Meal Plan

Since the appearance of salad bars in restaurants, people have often seen them as the healthy choice. Even though salad greens make a great foundation for a healthy meal, the range of ingredients available to add to your salad can leave you with an unexpected load of calories, fat, and carbohydrates. Its the small amounts you add that can lead you to consider those ingredients as irrelevant. The table compares two salads built at the same salad bar. You can see that the higher fat items avocado, ham, sunflower seeds, and salad dressing can really pile on calories. Because youre adding these items with a spoon, its difficult to keep up with what, and how much, you need to account for. Plus, youve probably noticed that some salad bars have expanded to include prepared creamy salads, like macaroni salad, and even dinner-type food like fried chicken. Oh, yes, and its the same price to go through ten times as it is for one. The salad bar can still be a great place to make a complete and healthy meal, but its necessary to know where youre likely to grab extra calories and carbohydrates in small packages. Otherwise, sticking to the salad bar for your health is wearing the healthy halo feeling good about a healthy behavior that really isnt healthy after all. Here are a few items typically found at salad bars that add calories fast if you dont manage the amounts you add carefully: Carbohydrates are especially important, because losing track of your carbohydrate food is losing control of your blood glucose. Watch for carbohydrates in fresh or canned fruits, raisins and dried fruit, beans and peas, potatoes, croutons, crackers, rice, pasta, and any mixed or creamy salads that include these items potato salads and three-bean salads are common. The point is not to declare salad bar Continue reading >>

Foods You Think Are Healthy But Aren T | Diabetic Connect

Foods You Think Are Healthy But Aren T | Diabetic Connect

No food is all or nothing even sugar can be okay to eat in small quantities. However, there are some common dishes many of us think are wholesome, but arent good for you in their typical serving sizes and with the typical ingredients. Here are 10 dishes many think are healthy but arent and how to modify them for better health. With the combination of croutons, heavy dressing, and loads of Parmesan cheese, even a small Caesar salad can deliver a whopping 470 calories with 40 grams of fat and more sodium than a bag of potato chips. Dont let the healthy label salad fool you. For a healthier option, get rid of those croutons, put less cheese on it and go for a lighter salad dressing. The unfortunate thing about taco salads is youre likely to add on a plethora of toppings from sour cream to Mexican blend shredded cheese to piles of guacamole that just arent good for you. Some sources say that a whole fast food taco salad can have 906 calories and 49 grams of fat. Consider foregoing the added cheese, taco sauce, crispy taco shell and guacamole and make a modified taco salad with the meat, beans and lettuce. A Cobb salad may be a lunch favorite, but our bodies certainly could do without it. Many Cobb salads come with supersized portions of bacon, hard-boiled eggs and blue cheese, not to mention dressing on top. The finished product is heaping amounts of fatty meats and cheeses and little lettuce and vegetables. You may want to omit the blue cheese and bacon and instead add more vegetables like peppers and cucumbers. You may think that fresh smoothies you get on your way to work may be jam-packed with nutrients. However, many of the most popular smoothies are filled with sherbet, ice cream, and fruit concentrates all high-sugar products with little to no nutritional value. Mak Continue reading >>
