Check out these 21 delicious, diabetes-friendly recipes to use for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Remember to stay within your carbohydrate allowance by noting the carb content and serving size of the recipes. Also, be sure to balance your meals with lean protein and healthy plant fats.

Festive Christmas Tea Punch | Sweet Tea And Thyme

Festive Christmas Tea Punch | Sweet Tea And Thyme

Christmas tea punch is an easy holiday drink made even easier using cold brew tea and plenty of holiday cheer with cranberries and sparkling cider. The recipe is sponsored by Southern Breeze Sweet Tea . All opinions are my own. PIN THIS CHRISTMAS TEA PUNCH RECIPE IN YOUR CHRISTMAS, HOLIDAY PARTY, HOLIDAY DRINKS, AND SOUTHERN BOARDSON PINTEREST. AND FOLLOW SWEET TEA & THYME ON PINTEREST FOR MORE TIPS, HACKS, AND TASTY RECIPES! Sorry, Charlie Brown Christmas is the all-time MVP of Christmas tv programming and Im in full holiday spirit the moment it comes on; my Christmas cheer is over 9000. Extra points if you know where thats from. Yall ever had tea punch? I swear it must be a southern thing, because too many people tell me they dont know what tea punch is when I bring out the punch bowl and some Arnold Palmer in the winter. Basically Christmas tea punch is a mix of juice, a sparkling wine or juice, and your favorite tea. I bring it out during the holiday parties, I bottle it up and bring it as hostess gifts, and its darn good with a little alcohol. Usually I make it with some southern Arnold Palmer, but that involves a couple of pots and some time to make both the lemonade and the sweet tea. So for this fast and easy version, I used the new half and half Cold Brew Southern Breeze Sweet Tea bags. No boiling, no fuss, and I didnt even have to add sugar, because the sweetener is inside the bags. Their sweet tea is zero calorie and great for those with dietary concerns, like diabetes, which makes this tea punch added-sugar-free, yall. I set up a bowl with a few cups of cold water and steeped some bags for about 8 minutes, because I wanted the tea flavor to be strong since each bag is actually made to give you one 8 oz cup of sweet tea and I was making a large amount. Then Continue reading >>

How to Make Your Beverages Diabetes-Friendly For a healthy type 2 diabetes diet, you need to count carbs and calories, and that includes beverages as well as foods. Get tips on choosing healthy drinks. One of the biggest pitfalls for a type 2 diabetes diet is washing down healthy foods with not-so-healthy beverages. With type 2 diabetes, you know you need to count your carbs and calories. But just one sugary drink can sink your best diet intentions faster than a fast-food feast. Good beverages for diabetes can still be flavorful and satisfying without the extra carbs and calories, but you need to know how to avoid unhealthy drink choices. The link between sugary beverages and diabetes is strong. In fact, for those who dont yet have type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests that eliminating sugar-sweetened beverages can lower the risk of developing diabetes significantly. The study, published in the journal Diabetologica in 2013, collected data from approximately 27,000 people in Europe and found that just one 12-ounce, sugar-sweetened beverage a day can increase the risk for type 2 diabetes by about 20 percent. Most people with diabetes know that regular soda should be avoided, but other beverages, even those marketed as healthy choices, may not be any better for blood sugar control , says Lanah J. Brennan, RD, CDE, a nutrition consultant at Reactive Nutriti Continue reading >>

Simple Party Punch (can Be Made Sugar Free!)

Simple Party Punch (can Be Made Sugar Free!)

Simple Party Punch (Can be made Sugar Free!) If youre on Facebook, please click the Like button above. Thanks! With New Years Eve upon us, I thought this would be a great time to bring you an old fashioned, super simple punch recipe that is suitable for everyone. If you are hosting a party, having this punch on hand in addition to your other preparations would be a very gracious and welcoming gesture because. Time to state the obvious but not obvious here : not everyone drinks alcohol. I used to think that most folks knew this was a given but more and more I find myself at places where people just assume everyone does. This is especially true, in my personal experience nowadays, with wine. I realize wine is a big thing right now. I realize it has been a big thing for centuries, but that doesnt mean everyone enjoys it. Chitlins have been a big thing for centuries, too, but Im not gonna put a plate of them up in your face when you come to my house and expect you to eat them. There are a whole slew of reasons why someone might choose not to drink alcohol, and those of us who dont are surely happy with a glass of water, but it is always a gracious gesture to have an alternative to alcohol at a gathering and this recipe for that gesture is DELICIOUS! This is a Ive been making since I was a teenager that is easily customizable. Today Im going to show you how to make it using Splenda and Sprite Zero. This significantly cuts out the sugar and leaves the only remaining sugars to be the natural sugars in the pineapple juice. You can also use full sugar Sprite (or 7-Up, or the like) and real sugar if you like, or an artificial sweetener of your choice (I love Ideal brand sweetener when I can find it). Now lets talk about New Years Eve. I can tell you right now that Ive got BIG pl Continue reading >>

You can make versions which include alcohol or versions which do not include alcohol. Or both!

We are raising our glasses to toast you all with some unique and delicious cocktails and mocktails! Be sure to bookmark or pin these creative beverages for your next gathering. We hope you enjoy this marvelous event! Thanks so much for joining us today. We are raising our glasses today. Mine is filled with a non-alcoholic version of this drink. For those who do not know me Ill fill you in on a little secret. Im not allowed to have alcohol, like not even a drop, not even a smidge. I have something called IBS and for me alcohol is a serious trigger. I havent had a drink in 7 years. Ive had maybe 2 glasses in the last 20 years. So, how I got wrangled into heading up Cocktail Day is still a mystery to me. A hilarious mystery none-the-less. Ive had so much fun doing this with Liz and Donna. Im so glad they had my back since I had lots of technical questions for them. I had a ton of fun planning what to make. I wrestled with how to handle this since lots of my readers know I cant drink. So a really good friend of mine suggested doing punch. She was right on the money. When we throw parties this is just the kind of thing we make. So I dug through my recipe notebooks. I havent thrown a party in some time but luckily I had some of my old ones in an old notebook. This one is super versatile and you can swap out ingredients easily, and adjust the sweetness based on yo Continue reading >>

11 Low-sugar Drink Ideas

11 Low-sugar Drink Ideas

Smart Swaps Ideally, we should all be drinking more water. It provides hydration free of sugar, carbs, and calories. If water is too plain for your taste, there are other ways to quench your thirst. Be wary of “healthy drinks” though; many of them are surprisingly high in sugar and calories. Many of the beverages you crave can be tailored to fit easily into a diabetes-friendly lifestyle. 1. Chocolate Milk Chocolate milk isn't just for kids. It's rich in protein and calcium that's great for adults, too. Low-fat chocolate milk is a great beverage choice to help you recover from a workout. Store-bought chocolate milk is typically laden with sugar, but you can make a DIY version at home that's compatible with your diabetes eating plan. Take a glass of 1% milk and add 3 teaspoons of cocoa and 2 tablespoons of no-calorie sweetener. Stir until well mixed and enjoy! 2. Sugar-Free Sweet Tea Sweetened tea is satisfying on a hot summer's day, but it packs a sugar and calorie punch that can derail your diabetes dietary goals. You can enjoy this friendlier low-sugar option: Crush your favorite fruit (berries work well for this) and add it to steeping tea. Strain the mixture and chill in the fridge. Add no-calorie sweetener, if you wish. Pour over ice and enjoy! 3. Orange Juice What would brunch be without orange juice? Unfortunately, traditional versions of this sunny drink are far from diabetes friendly, packing about 26 grams of sugar per cup. Instead, reach for light versions of this tasty favorite. Aim for one that has 15 calories, 3 grams of carbs, and 100% of your daily vitamin C per serving. Or just peel and enjoy an orange to satisfy your craving. You can also add a splash of orange juice to seltzer water. 4. Chai Latte What's fragrant, spicy, sweet, and creamy all at th Continue reading >>
