Diabetes is a condition where the amount of sugar in your blood is too high. This happens because of two things. First, your body either does not respond to insulin. Or second, your body cant produce insulin. Insulin is responsible for turning sugar into food for your bodys cells. There are two types of diabetes. First is type 1, where your body cannot produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is when your body cant use insulin or cant produce the right amount of insulin your body needs. This condition is also known as hypertension. It is known as the silent killer. This is because it has no obvious symptoms. Many people are not aware if they have it. High blood pressure means your blood is pumping through your heart and blood vessels with too much force. Relationship between Diabetes and High Blood Pressure It is not known why there is a connection between the two diseases. However, it is widely assumed that obesity, inactivity, and a high-fat and high-sodium diet lead to both conditions. Around 25 percent of people with type 1 diabetes have high blood pressure.

Carrot Blood Orange Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie: Diabetic Friendly

Carrot Blood Orange Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie: Diabetic Friendly During my recent visit to the local grocery store HEB, I found blood oranges, yes, I am trying blood oranges for the first time. I have seen earlier in other blogs about blood oranges, but never tried myself. Originally my plan was to make drink with it, but I didnt want it in the start of the week. So, decided to make a smoothie bowl, but when I mixed everything it turned out be not thick as it should be for smoothie bowl. But it was of drinking consistency, thus Carrot Blood Orange Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie was born. This is a wholesome smoothie and great to start the day, yes rich in Vitamin C from orange, blood oranges and strawberries, Vitamin A from Carrot. It is further enriched with banana and oatmeal. What else do you want for your perfect breakfast, oranges, berries, banana and oatmeal. Blood orange I have in hand was slightly tart, so I used Nectevia (which is Fortified Agave Nectar with Stevia). If you dont want to use Nectevia, you can add some dates. If you want to make it as a smoothie bowl I think you need creamy smoothie, add avocado maybe I will try that next time. My daughter me told it is delicious can you make it for my breakfast.

Even though fresh is best, if you are out of time make carrot juice the night before and refrigerate it, next morning make this Carrot blood orange strawberry oatmeal smoothie with rest of ingredients. If you are oatmeal fan like me then this smoothie is one for you. I have added old fashioned oats, you can use gluten free one also.

Best Smoothies For People With Diabetes

Best Smoothies For People With Diabetes

Smoothies may seem like a healthful option, but they can be a very bad choice for people who have diabetes. Many people with diabetes are well-informed about what they can and cannot eat. They know also that choosing premade meals, snacks, and drinks can be challenging. People with diabetes have to be very careful when ordering smoothies in restaurants, as these often contain far too much sugar and not enough protein and fat. With some modifications, however, smoothies can be enjoyed either at home or at a restaurant. Things to consider when making a smoothie People with diabetes must pay careful attention to their carbohydrate intake. Avoiding low quality carbohydrates, such as sugar or white flour, and using dietary fiber as their guide in choosing carbohydrates, are the best dietary options for them. A person with diabetes should consider some of the following: Extra fat can be a good thing The debate can be very confusing between good and bad fat, what is good and bad cholesterol, and the ever-changing guidelines on what offers the best balance between them. However, in short, some fats are very beneficial to people with diabetes, as they help slow down the speed at which sugar enters the blood. Some sources of fat that can be added to a morning smoothie include: almond or peanut butter chia seeds avocado raw pecans raw walnuts Include extra protein Similarly to fat, protein offers many health benefits that are particularly important to people with diabetes. For example, high-protein content slows the absorption of food, which reduces the speed at which sugar enters the bloodstream. Protein does not always need to come from an animal or animal byproduct. Many foods contain high amounts of protein, and adding them to a smoothie in the morning will offer great benefit Continue reading >>

10 Delicious Diabetic-friendly Smoothies

10 Delicious Diabetic-friendly Smoothies

Having diabetes doesn’t mean you need to deny yourself all the foods you love, but you do want to make healthier food choices. One good choice is to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which are heavy in nutrition but light in calories. Some fruits and vegetables are better for managing your diabetes than others. Look for produce that’s low on the glycemic index and load, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar. Low-glycemic fruits and vegetables include: It’s also important to get plenty of calcium- and probiotic-rich dairy foods to fortify your bones and provide good gut bacteria. Good sources are low-fat milk, kefir, and Greek yogurt. These foods are essential to any diabetes diet, yet you don’t need to eat them with a fork or even a spoon. You can pack a lot of nutrition into one smoothie and get a delicious treat. As long as you stick with healthy ingredients and don’t add extra sweeteners, you can enjoy these treats on a regular basis. Just remember when you do blend fruit into your smoothies to count them as part of your daily fruit allowance so you don’t overdo it on carbohydrates. Even natural sugar can drive up your blood sugar if you eat too much of it. Here are 10 diabetes-friendly smoothie ideas to get you started. 1. Superfood Smoothie This smoothie has it all — antioxidant-rich berries, healthy fat from the avocado, greens, and protein.

Banana-oat Smoothie

Banana-oat Smoothie

Recipe photo courtesy of John Kernick Get a healthy start with lean protein from milk and yogurt, plus fiber from oats and banana. 1. In a blender, combine oats, yogurt, banana, fat-free milk, honey, and cinnamon; puree until smooth. Serve immediately. Very tasty breakfast in a glass! I made it with 2% milk and plain Greek non-fat yogurt. You'd never know it was a healthy drink. Delicious, and two big health bonuses!

(Makes 1 serving) Made for the first time today and loved it! Like other reviewers I used FROZEN banana, and I also added a handful of almonds. So yummy! I use the myfitnesspal app and I entered all the ingredients in this and got 357 calories for this recipe. Keep in mind though that nothing in this recipe has any empty calories! I made this one this morning. It tasted great, but I would add frozen banana chunks because the drink was not cold enough for me. I tried it and it's delicious! But I cooked the oatmeal and I was wondering if you did that too or it was unbacked? I made one this morning using the recipe with uncooked oats. I liked it but it was too much for me to finish. I added 5 ice cubes because I like my smoothies cold and I usually use frozen fruit. We didn't have plain yogurt so I used vanilla yogurt and vanilla soymilk in place of the milk. I omitted the honey. It cam out creamy, refreshing, and delicious! This smoothie is a great pick me-up or breakfast. It is filling! I love this smoothie and often have it for breakfast. I am in the UK and keep meaning to convert the measurements but luckily I have a trusty measuring device that can measur Continue reading >>
