Foods For Gestational Diabetes Archives - Gestational Diabetes Information

Gestational diabetes is the form of diabetes that happens during pregnancy. This type of diabetes can be easily tackled by taking a healthy and balanced diet for a long period of time. The diet helps in slowingthe growth of the diabetes and prevents it from turning more complicated during the whole term of pregnancy. This is obviously recommended that the patient or the pregnant lady should consult a doctor before starting any such diet to determine the best diet plan for her and then follow it as required. In this article, I want to discussthe gestational diabetes recipes that you must followand why they make a difference for your meal planning. For any balanced diet, you should eat food from a variety of sources, never stick to one particular kind of food as it may hamper your total nutrition intake. In case of gestational diabetes you need to consume a variety of food, mainly: A great deal of fruits and vegetables as they contain a healthyamount of fiber and vitamins A balanced amount of healthy fats and lean proteins but dont take a lot of saturated fat and oils Dont consume too much amount of food which contains a lot of sugar, such as fruit juices, pastries, soft drinks etc. Balanced amount of whole grain foods, such as cereal, bread, rice etc. Remember whole grains have extra fiber so you are able to absorb them more slowly Take a reasonableamount of starchy vegetables like peas and corn.Try to cook them without extra butter or margarine. Try to avoid butter most of the time,and substitute it with vegetableor oliveoil. This can be a great substitute for your need of butter and would not hamper the taste of the food that much Substitute your white rice with brown rice as this helps you keep the blood sugar ata balanced level by absorbing the food more slowly Incl Continue reading >>

Avocado Chocolate Mousse Two Recipes!

Avocado Chocolate Mousse Two Recipes!

If youve never tried avocado chocolate mousse before, this healthy recipe will take you completely by surprise! It is rich and silky smooth and you really cant taste the avocado. The idea of avocado chocolate mousse has been popular on the health food scene for years, but some of the recipes out there are unfortunately so awful they only prove true mainstream societys claim that avocado chocolate mousse is too weird or too healthy to really be dessert. This is exactly what happened to me a few years back when one of my friends found a recipe for avocado chocolate mousse and decided we should try it. The results were so terrible that it took me five years to even think about coming up with my own version ofthe popular dessert. (Note to self: Always be suspicious of a chocolate pudding recipe that does not call for any salt whatsoever.) However, when the subject of avocado chocolate mousse came up on the blog a few weeks ago when I posted my avocado-free Healthy Chocolate Pudding recipe, I was finally inspired to give the idea a second chance. And Im so glad I did! With the right recipe, avocado chocolate mousse can be really good, for a healthy dessert or not! The best part about this avocado chocolate mousse is that it tastes so decadent and so sinful that you completely forget youre getting so many health benefits at the same time! Avocados are 100% cholesterol-free, contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients; and just one serving of the superfood offers eight percent of the daily value of fibera nutrient which provides a feeling of fullness and has also been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. With less than one gram of sugar per ounce, avocados have the least amount of sugar per serving of any fruit, and they act as a nutrient b Continue reading >>

Healthy Desserts For Your Diabetes Diet

Healthy Desserts For Your Diabetes Diet

You might think a diabetes diagnosis means you’ll have to skip dessert forever. “Not so,” says Lara Rondinelli-Hamilton, a certified diabetes educator at DuPage Medical Center in Chicago. “With a little planning, you can satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping your blood sugar under control.” But just how do you do that? There are several ways. Swap Other Carbs for Dessert “Everyone focuses on the sugar, but what’s really important is the total carbohydrates,” says Rondinelli-Hamilton, author of the American Diabetes Association cookbook Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cooking. “If you’d like to have a small piece of pie for dessert, skip the starchy vegetable during dinner,” she says. But she’s quick to point out that this isn’t something you should do on a regular basis. “Desserts and sweets don’t have the nutritional value that other foods do, so it’s best to save them for special occasions,” she says. Think Small Along with limiting how often you have dessert, you’ll also need to limit how much you eat -- and that can be a challenge. “Sugar sets off fireworks in your brain, making you crave more,” says Jessica Bennett, RD, a dietitian at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Fighting the urge to overdo it takes a lot of effort. But there are ways to make it a little easier. “Set yourself up for success by buying desserts that are packaged as a single serving, like a sugar-free fudge pop or a small square of dark chocolate,” Rondinelli-Hamilton says. And be realistic. “If you can’t have cake in the house without eating the whole thing, don’t buy a cake,” she says. When you go out, check the menu for miniature desserts. Many restaurants now offer treats served in small dishes or shot glasses. “If that’s not Continue reading >>

Sweet Snacks/dessert

Sweet Snacks/dessert

Is anyone allowing themselves to indulge in a sweet snack or dessert? Does anyone have any good recommendations that don't cause a spike in BG? I have been craving dessert for the last few weeks after sticking to a very strict diet. Any tips welcome! I had a salad for lunch Friday and a small slice of pumpkin cheesecake and walked 1 mile in the morning before lunch and my #s were 113 2 hours after. I just make sure whoever desserts I eat I have that much protein to balance. So a cookie that's 12 grams of carbs I have at least 12 grams of protein (nuts, peanut butter, etc). I've been having pretty good luck. I'm diet controlled for all #'s except fasting I'm on meds for (but still struggling with it). One sweet snack I've been making myself is just blending together 12 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 a banana, and 3 Tbs no sugar added peanut butter. It tastes like a sweet smoothie but has no added sugar and counts for 1 carb! I usually pair it with a couple cheese sticks for additional protein, even though the peanut butter alone is probably enough. :) Cheesecake is one of the better desserts to have because of the protein it has. Try sugar free jello or pudding as well. And weight watchers ice Creams. I opt for bites of things a little more often as opposed to doing a full dessert on rare occasions. As long as it's with dinner, doesn't seem to matter if it's 2 bites of cheesecake or half a See's candy truffle or a generous spoonful of ice cream. My numbers stay low and I've been surprised that it's enough to satisfy the sweet tooth. I had some chocolate carmel ice cream this afternoon after eating a big spoonful of peanut butter. I tested after an hour and my number was only a 92. You never know until you try! I toast raisin cinnamon English muffins and put but Continue reading >>

Dessert Recipes For Gestational Diabetes Patients

Dessert Recipes For Gestational Diabetes Patients

A diabetes diagnosis changes peoples lives in many different ways. But changing your diet into a dull one- devoid of any kind of palatable pleasure- does not necessarily have to be one of them. Completely depriving yourself of sweet tit bits is a feat next to impossible. People who are diagnosed with diabetes often restrict themselves from consuming any kind of sweet food items. This can cause immense mental frustration, leading them to go on binge-eating patterns. But it is possible to indulge your sweet tooth with these diabetes friendly dessert recipes. There are a number of alternatives that will help diabetic patients to satiate their craving for sweets with minimal amount of spike in their blood sugar. Some ideas for diabetes friendly desserts are: Low-calorie sugar free pudding layered with sugar free whipped topping. Gelatine made of fresh fruits or canned fruits which are packed in very light syrup. Sugar free hot chocolate drink with a dash of cinnamon on the top. In case these sugar free alternatives do not satiate your palette, there is an option of using artificial sweeteners or you could also use some kind of natural sugar according to the dish that you wish to prepare. Fresh seasonal fruit provides you with a healthy sweet treat. Fruits provide you with natural sweetening elements and can be used in different types of fruit salads. Combine fresh seasonal melons like honeydew melon with sufficient amount of cubed cantaloupe. Sprinkle few chopped mint leaves and mix the whole thing with a little honey. Honey provides natural sweetening and therefore using it to coat the salad makes it healthy yet sweet. Combine fresh juicy fruits like strawberries, blueberry,green grapes and toss them together. In a bowl, whisk fat free plain yogurt, honey, lemon juice and Continue reading >>

Eating Well

Eating Well

We hope that the following practical information on eating and staying well will help you feel positive and encouraged to stick to the gestational diabetes (GDM) diet. The GDM diet is basically a really healthy way of eating which can benefit the whole family. Read on for tips on everything from exercising, eating cake and dealing with hunger. Written by Natasha Leader, Accredited Practising Dietitian & Credentialled Diabetes Educator What about exercise? What’s the deal with carbs? So you’ve just found out that you need to manage your daily carbohydrate (carb) intake. This can be a little tricky. Carbs are now a problem for you but also the solution. You need carbs and your baby needs carbs. Carbohydrates are our energy food. They are contained in many important food groups i.e. bread and cereals, fruits, vegetables and dairy. You can’t just cut them out or your diet would end up unbalanced and insufficient but too much of them means too much glucose in your bloodstream. The answer is this. You need to eat a consistent and moderate amount of carbs regularly through the day. Timing: Ideally you should be eating every 2.5-3hrs. Leaving a much longer gap means you might get too hungry and want to eat more when you finally do eat. Eating every hour means your body is going to find it too hard to keep processing all the time. Try having 3 meals and 3 small snacks through the day. These should be at times of the day that suit you. Type & Amount: Choose nutritious or high-fibre carbs i.e. wholegrain breads and crackers, pasta, starchy vegetables such as corn and potato, legumes, low fat dairy milk and yoghurt and fruit. A fist-sized amount of carbohydrate is a good rule of thumb to go by until you see a dietitian. This is usually equal to about a standard cup measure (2 Continue reading >>

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes As A Food Lover

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes As A Food Lover

What I Ate When I Couldn't Eat Anything: Facing Gestational Diabetes as a Food Lover Whether food is your comfort, your hobby, or your profession, gestational diabetes is tough. Here's what you can eat. [Photograph: Shutterstock ] In the first few months of my pregnancy, friends often asked me how I was dealing with life without wine, beer, and cocktails; without buttery pieces of toro at my beloved neighborhood sushi bar; without the various other foods most people avoid when they're carrying a baby. Early on, none of those things mattered much to me; I was too sick to crave much more than mac and cheese. Coffee and wine started to taste oddly bitter and flat to me, but it didn't seem that awful to wait 40 weeks to get back to enjoying them. My local bar always managed to serve me some creative alcohol-free concoction. (Pineapple juice and savory Cel-ray? Highly recommended.) I took advantage of California's citrus season, buying pounds of floral Oro Blanco grapefruits and tangerines for making fresh juice. Fruit never tasted better: I sent my husband on wild goose chases for out-of-season mangoes, and celebrated the early arrival of local strawberries by eating a pint every day. And I had ice cream: pints of salted caramel at home, cones of Bi-Rite's insanely rich buffalo-milk soft serve during walks around the park. In challenging moments in those first few months, Max reminded me that "at least it's an excuse to eat all the ice cream you could desire." (I never did convince him to ship me some homemade pints of this crazy chocolate number from New York.) But in mid-March I found myself undergoing a hazing ritual pretty much all pregnant women experience: you show up at the hospital with an empty stomach, get your blood drawn, and then chug a bottle of extra-strong Continue reading >>

This recipe is sweetened with Swerve a 100% natural sweetener safe for diabetic. The batter is gluten free and low in carbs made of a mix of almond meal and coconut flour.

Low Carb No Bake Haystack Cookies

Low Carb No Bake Haystack Cookies

Low Carb, Ketogenic No Bake Haystack Cookies from the fabulous cookbook The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen. Today Ive got something different for you. I received a copy of the cookbook The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen. Are you familiar with ketogenics? Let me tell you about it. Carolyn Ketchum, the author, was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her third pregnancy. She had always been slender, active and healthy. After trying to keep to a healthy diet, she saw her blood sugar numbers continue to climb. So she decided to try a low carb lifestyle. Carolyn slowly cut back on her carbs until she found a sweet spot of fats, carbohydrates and protein that worked for her. She later learned that the sweet spot was actually a ketogenic diet. She shares her ketogenic recipes at her blog All Day I Dream About Food. So what is a ketogenic diet you ask? It is a diet where you track your macronutrients in the form of 60 to 85% fat, 15 to 30% protein and 5 to 20% carb. By eating a diet low in carbohydrates and high in fat, you achieve nutritional ketosis. The ranges in the amounts of macronutrients is because everyones body is different, and you need to find what works for you. The cookbook goes into much more detail about the diet, diabetes and ketogenics. It really is an informative read, and I enjoyed learning about it. Now lets get to the recipes. Even if you are not on a low carb diet, you are going to love these recipes. I was drooling over so many like Smoked Salmon Pinwheels. I think these would be fabulous for my Christmas party. Her Cheesy Broccoli Tots are amazing popular with kids and can easily be made for dinner. I chose to make some No Bake Haystack Cookies that I remember from my youth. A high school that I went to made the most amazing No Bake Haystack Cookies and Continue reading >>

Gestational Diabetes Friendly Dessert??

Gestational Diabetes Friendly Dessert??

I've got friends coming for dinner and she has gestational diabetes.So I'm a bit stuck for dessert as I normally would cook something chocolate and luscious (but not diabetes friendly).Any receipes or ideas would be a great help! Here is the recipe for Apple and strawberry crumble. It is not really fancy but it is yum. 1. preheat oven to 200oC. Lightly grease a 1L dish 2. Put the apples, honey and 2 tbsp water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until the apples have softened a little. Remove from heat and stir in the strawberries. Spoon mixture into the dish. 3. Put the oats in a food processor and process until the mixture is coarse. Combine the oats in a bowl with the sugar, cinnamon and margarine. Mix together and spoon over the fruit. 4. Bake for 15-20 mins or until crumble is crisp and golden. I made it earlier this week and just used tinned apple and didn't use the strawberries, it was yum. I haven't tried this recipe but it sounds nice... 1. Sift the cocoa into a saucepan, then stir in the gelatine and sugar. Stir in about 60ml of the milk, stirring to form a smooth paste. Put the saucepan over medium heat and stir for about 3 minutes to dissolve the sugar and gelatine, then gradually stir in the remaining milk. Heat until the liquid is hot but not boiling, stirring occasionally. 2. Remove from the heat, stir in the cream, then divide the mixture between 6 125ml glasses or rameskins. Chill until set (approx 2-3 hours) 3. Serve with the fresh berries and with a scoop of low fat icecream. If you do a search for Low GI recipes, you will find heaps. Continue reading >>
