The Docks are built on a site with over 1000 years of dramatichistory. The roots of the buildings on todays site can be tracedback to the 10th Century when King Edgar gave 13 acres of landto 13 Knights, with the right to use the land for trade. There isevidence of there having been a dock at St Katharines since 1125and throughout the ages it has housed a Hospital and Monastery.The first use of the name St Katharine Docks has been tracedback to Elizabethan times, when the area around the hospital wasthriving with busy wharves. By the end of the 18th Century, St.Katharines was a prosperous settlement with its own court, schooland alms houses along with the hospital the area housed around3000 people.However, the Industrial Revolution came to London, and the RiverThames became a super-highway for the rapidly growing city.Londons existing docks could not handle the amount of trade andParliament authorised the construction of new, purpose built docksand therefore gained a reputation for handling valuable cargo fromEurope, the West Indies, Africa and the Far East such as sugar,rum, tea, spices, perfumes, ivory, shells, marble, indigo, wine andbrandy and the docks thrived with bustle and commerce. 181 years on from its opening as a busy industrial site, at firstglance St Katharine Docks has developed into a haven oftranquillity, nestled in the heart of the City of London.

I wanted to take my wife out to a restaurant but , obviously, I have to be careful now. There is a Noodle chain restaurant called Wagawama here (don't know if they are in the states). They apparently have menus for people on dietary needs including diabetes. I have pasted a link to the menu they recommend for diabetes and would appreciate it if someone could have a look at it and give an opinion and /or advice etc. I have to recommend staying away from a house of carbs! This sounds like diabetes trap. I would recommend finding somewhere you can fill up a bowl with veggies and meat and have a little bit of noodles or rice with it. I have been to Mongolian grills which are great for this. IDK if you have them over there though. D.D. Family Type 2 since 1995, Invokana, Trulicity Noodles are a No-No!! Think about a steak and sides of veggies plus a side salad. Moderator T2 insulin resistant Using Basal/Bolus Therapy I personally quite like Wagamamas, and I have found that a good number of dishes are fine for me (but note I am T1). Looking at their website, I think that it is really misleading and really a statement of the gross misunderstanding there is of diabetes in the UK. Their diabetic advice states: Please be aware that most of our sauces and some dishes contain sugar. to help, we have listed dishes as having a high, medium or low sugar content: This completely misunderstands the factors all diabetics need to consider, which includes total carb content. As is rightly stated on this thread, noodles are carb-rich and therefore for a T2 should at best be consumed in extreme moderation, at worst be taken out of diet. However, scanning through the menu there are salads and other lower-carb options. It is a big challenge going out, but get to know what are the foods that k Continue reading >>

Frantzn Raises Awareness About Childhood Diabetes With A Dinner Created By Star Chefs

Frantzn Raises Awareness About Childhood Diabetes With A Dinner Created By Star Chefs

Frantzn raises awareness about childhood diabetes with a dinner created by star chefs On the evening of the 14th November, the World Diabetes Day Dinner is being created at Frantzn by chefs from around the world to draw attention to childhood diabetes. A total of 10 chefs from 5 restaurants will be gathering together to create a tasting menu together with Bjrn Frantzn and his team. All the visiting restaurants have been awarded two or three stars in the Michelin Guide and the surplus from the dinner will go to the Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation. It was only when my daughter got diabetes at the age of three that I understood the severity of the disease, says chef and restaurateur Bjrn Frantzn. Our family was forced to re-evaluate everything, not least our food which then took on a whole new meaning to us. With the dinner at Frantzn, together with incredible international colleagues, we want to make a contribution to the vital research into childhood diabetes. After his daughters diagnosis, Bjrn Frantzn began to develop dishes especially for diabetics. This resulted in a complete cookbook, which came out in Sweden earlier this autumn. The dinner on the 14th November will also be the third time that Frantzn hosts a World Diabetes Day Dinner. The chefs coming to Stockholm to help out in this years event are: The World Diabetes Day dinner at Frantzn costs 10 000 SEK/pp and consists of a tasting menu in which signature dishes from all the chefs are represented. The cost includes all beverages, from champagne and wine to coffee and avec. Continue reading >>

Eating In Restaurants If You Have Diabetes

Dining out should be a pleasure... ...not a chore. Whether there’s a special occasion to celebrate, a catch-up is long overdue, or simply just ‘because’, gathering together with friends and family to share food is a huge part of how we live our lives. There can’t be many of us who don’t enjoy a meal out, and having diabetes shouldn’t stop you. However, changes to eating routine, unknown ingredients and carb content in food, often generous portion sizes – these are just a handful of some of the issues which dining out can present, and are worth thinking about. Whether you have diabetes or not, these tips can help you keep the balance right when eating out and about. Portion sizes We've all had a meal in a restaurant that either seems really huge, or really small when it finally arrives on the table. While the latter can be disappointing, it's receiving a mountain of food that can really impact your otherwise healthy diet. Judging portion sizes can be tricky at the best of times, and made even harder when you're not preparing the dish yourself. If you're concerned about overeating or having more of a certain food than you should, read our advice on portion sizes. Making healthy choices Not only are so many options on a menu tempting, there's also the added disadvantage of not knowing exactly how the food has been prepared or what's gone into a meal. There are lots of ways you can maintain your healthy diet when eating out, such as choosing lighter, smaller versions of mains, opting for grilled meats that will likely be lower in fat, ask for dressings to be served on the side, and checking for steamed or grilled food as opposed to fried.

London Restaurants That Are Good For Specific Diets And Healthy Eating

London Restaurants That Are Good For Specific Diets And Healthy Eating

FromNordic diets and raw food eateries to Paleo and Atkins-friendly restaurants, weve foundthe bestLondon dining optionsfor your new diet regime or healthy-eating lifestyle Tanya Maher of Tanyas Cafe has a devoted following Once the staple diet of vegans and hipsters, the raw-food diet has gained new devotees over the past couple of years as its health benefits become more widely recognised. A host of London restaurants and cafs now offer raw food dishes like seaweed salads, zucchini pasta and cashew cheese tarts as part of their repertoire. Some have even created a 100% raw food menu. Tanyas Caf in Chelsea is one example, where all the dishes, from the pad thai and onion bread veggie sun-burger to the pumpkin dumplings, are raw, organic, plant-based, free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Other great cafs to try include Nama Foods in Notting Hill, the long-running Inspiral Caf in Camden and Planet Organic , which has locations across the capital. 2014 was the year of the Paleo diet, and the trend shows no signs of waning as it comes to Londons dining scene. Pure Taste , the UKs first Paleo-friendly restaurant recently opened in Notting Hill, unveiling a high-protein menu that is free from dairy products, grains, and refined sugars. A comprehensive key also accompanies each dish explaining what other diets it adheres to e.g. free from egg. As youd expect, theres a meaty offering on the compact menu with beef short rib, guinea fowl and pork, plus lots of fish too. And, the desserts sound very intriguing if the lime and kiwi cannelloni with basil is anything to go by Herrings with capers and red onion from Snaps & Rye After our obsession with the TV stars of Nordic Noir, came our fascination with what was on their plates. And as a stark contrast to all the on-screen Continue reading >>

Meat Lover's Guide To A Diabetes Diet

Meat Lover's Guide To A Diabetes Diet

Is the aroma of a sizzling steak too good to resist? If you're smart about how you choose red meat, it can have a place among other healthy protein sources in your diabetes diet. Having diabetes means making some specific dietary changes, but you don’t have to give up all of your favorite foods. You just need to make better choices. If you’re a meat lover, knowing how to select quality red meat and avoiding processed types, like certain cold cuts, is key. Cutting back on red meat and processed meats is beneficial even if you don't have diabetes because it's a heart-healthy strategy for any diet. And cutting back when you do have diabetes is even more important because all the fat and salt that comes along with processed meat can make diabetes control more difficult. On the other hand, your diabetes diet should include healthy protein, and the right lean red meat can fit the bill, but within limits. About Diabetes and Red Meat When researchers in Japan looked at the dietary habits and diabetes risk of 27,425 men and 36,424 women between 45 and 75 years old, they found that for men, but not women, red meat or processed meat consumption correlated with diabetes risk. The more of those meats the men ate, the greater their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, the authors concluded. A large study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found similar results in a large group of U.S. adults, although without a gender split. And when yet another team of researchers reviewed studies on this link, they found similar results across the board. The conclusion? Eating a lot of red meat and processed meat appears to increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. According to these findings published in Current Atherosclerosis Reports, processed meat in particular, Continue reading >>

A Sugar-free Guide To London

A Sugar-free Guide To London

Sejal Sukhadwala A Sugar-Free Guide To London Low-sugar afternoon tea at the Pantry at 108 Note: prices in this article were accurate when first published in 2015. Other information has been updated. Sugar is big news these days. From the snootiest broadsheets to the unlikeliest of tabloids, every UK newspaper has featured headline-grabbing stories about the effects of sugar-laden foods on our health. In culinary terms, its currently public enemy number one. So its no wonder more and more Londoners are cutting down on sugar, or quitting altogether. Top Walthamstow-based baking blogger Sarah Trivuncic of Maison Cupcake once almost entirely associated with baked sweet treats gave up sugar at the start of December. She explains: I didnt specifically plan to give up sugar; rather I wanted to improve my energy levels and cut back on white carbs and processed sugars to stabilise my eating patterns. As a consequence, I was eating more whole foods. Very quickly I noticed that the less I ate sweet things, the less twitchy I felt between meals craving snacks. I dont know how long Ill keep it up hopefully long-term but so far Im not feeling deprived of anything. Shes blogging less about cupcakes and more about kale and quinoa these days. Its not easy though. Kate Johns, the director of Nudge PR a food and drink marketing company that founded Chocolate Week and the Chocolate Show, and has several sweet clients on its books dabbled in a sugar-free diet part-time for a while. She says: I tried it at the beginning [of 2014] and went sugar-free on weekdays for a couple of weeks. It did make a difference. I lost a bit of weight, but to get full benefits (better skin, energy, etc), I would have to cut it out entirely and I love cake too much! Technically-speaking, most foods cant be sug Continue reading >>

28 Popular Restaurant Dishes That Are Great For Diabetics

28 Popular Restaurant Dishes That Are Great For Diabetics

Dining out with diabetes Contrary to popular belief, a diabetes diagnosis doesn't mean you have to spend your days eating flavorless fare. It's completely possible to enjoy delicious food—even at a restaurant, as long as you know exactly what to order, how it's prepared, and what an appropriately sized portion looks like. Since not everyone with diabetes has the same meal plan or health goals, we set out to create the most comprehensive list of diabetes-friendly restaurant dishes, whether you're cutting calories or keeping salt, carbs, or fats to a minimum. Read on for nutritionist-approved orders from Chinese and Italian restaurants, delis, smoothie shops, and other popular eateries. Plus, don't forget to be on the lookout for these menu words to avoid. At American restaurants: Turkey burger with steamed broccoli When you're dining at your local sports bar or diner, Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN, says that a turkey burger is the way to go. "Remove the top bun, which doesn't typically contain much fiber and swap fries for a green veggie. This will add fiber to your meal and help slow blood sugar spikes and promote satiety," she explains. Here's how to get more fiber in your diet. At American restaurants: Beef burger with a salad If you prefer a beef burger, Smith suggests pairing one with a salad (sorry, no fries) and a vinegar-based dressing on the side. Ditch the top bun to keep empty carbs off your plate and say "no thanks" to cheese to keep excess salt and fat to a minimum. At American restaurants: Filet mignon Feeling fancy? Order a filet with a sweet potato and side of non-starchy vegetables such as spinach or broccoli, suggests Miriam Jacobson, RD, CDN. "Sometimes a steak can be the healthiest item on the menu. Just beware of portion sizes. It should be the size of Continue reading >>
