7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

Onions and leeks are from the same family, but they taste different. Leeks are sweeter and milder than onions. In this recipe, chicken is glazed in Dijon mustard and roasted with a fusion of leeks, onions, garlic, and shallots. According to a 2015 animal study , onions lower high blood sugar levels when given with the diabetes drug metformin. 3. Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks Think you cant bite into a fried chicken leg if you have diabetes? Think again! The chicken drumsticks in this recipe are coated in a savory Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb crust. Theyre oven-baked instead of fried. Chicken drumsticks are higher in fat than chicken breasts, so be sure to balance your meal with low-fat sides. Drumsticks are still a great source of protein and much cheaper to buy. This recipe brings to mind apple-picking in early fall, but its tasty any time of year. Tart green apples and thyme are the perfect complements for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Since the fiber in apples is a good carb that doesnt raise blood sugar levels, you can rest assured youre eating a healthy meal. A great roast chicken is a staple in many recipe arsenals. Its the perfect meal option for an elegant dinner party or a casual family dinner. For this recipe, apples, onions, garlic, and spices are stuffed into the cavity of a whole chicken. The chicken then gets an olive oil rub-down and is roasted to moist perfection. Make sure to peel off the skin before eating the meat. Use the leftovers to create a healthy chicken salad made with Greek yogurt and celery. 6. Marinated Grilled Chicken with Zucchini If youve got raw chicken in the fridge, a bumper crop of zucchini, and a grill, then youve got the makings of a healthy dinner. After being marinated in a blend of clementine orange juice, olive Continue reading >>

7 Easy Lunches For Type 2 Diabetes

7 Easy Lunches For Type 2 Diabetes

If breakfast is the most neglected meal of the day, lunch can often be the most hurried. A recent survey found that 62 percent of Americans rush through lunch at their desks, and even when we manage to leave the office, fast-food restaurants and food courts often prevail over more healthy options. But they don't have to be your only option — and, in fact, they shouldn't be your first choice if you have type 2 diabetes. In general, try to pack your own lunch whenever possible — the health benefits, not to mention the cost-savings, can be enormous. Short on prep time? Put these quick and nutritious lunch ideas on your menu to fill you up and keep your blood sugar in check. 1. Salads Salad should be in regular rotation for lunch. You can create a different salad every day of the week by varying your toppings. Try grilled chicken, shrimp, or fish, but avoid heaping on a lot of fattening ingredients, such as bacon bits and heavy cheeses. Salads with lots of raw vegetables are best, including carrots, cucumbers, radishes, celery, and spinach. Sprinkle nuts or seeds on top, add a few dried cranberries, and garnish with some avocado chunks to give it zip. Choose a salad dressing made with vinegar and olive oil to avoid added sugars found in fat-free and low-fat versions, and limit the serving to one tablespoon for a side salad and two tablespoons for an entrée-sized salad. 2. Sandwiches As with salads, there are many ways to spice up a sandwich. Start with whole-grain bread or a whole-wheat tortilla. Pick a lean meat, such as turkey, ham, or grilled chicken; layer on your choice of veggies; add mustard, low-fat mayonnaise, or hummus to the mix — and you have a filling and tasty lunch. Stay away from greasy chips, French fries, and other fattening sides. Instead choose fr Continue reading >>

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

It's perfect if you have diabetes or try to avoid sugar. Want to enjoy the finger-licking goodness of BBQ chicken, but not a fan of all that sugar in your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce? This sweet and zesty condiment makes almost any food better, but it’s also pretty sweet, and not in a good way. Some popular brands have more than 15 grams of sugar per serving! That means you may unknowingly consume way more sugar than you intended—and during a savory dinner, not even for dessert! (Here are more sneaky condiments to watch out for.) If you’re treating insulin resistance or following a diabetic diet, the sugar in BBQ sauce is something you need to pay attention to, since it can cause an unexpected blood sugar spike you might not be prepared for. In this episode of Diabetes Bites, nutritionist Fiorella DiCarlo, RD, whips up a diabetes-friendly BBQ chicken that uses a low-carb, homemade BBQ sauce that imitates the traditional grilling favorite with way less sugar. But actually, you won’t even need a grill: Fiorella makes this in a slow cooker, so you can enjoy this recipe all year round. This low-sugar BBQ chicken recipe uses dark meat like drumsticks or thighs since these are juicier. Although the chicken breast is usually recommended because it’s lower in fat, dark meat has tons of protein along with iron and vitamin B12. For people managing diabetes, increasing protein intake is beneficial since it helps you stay full while you’re cutting back on carbs. (Here are more foods nutritionists recommend to treat diabetes.) That said, you can totally swap in chicken breast if that’s your jam. Then round out your plate with some seasonal grilled vegetables, and you’ve got a perfect diabetes-friendly dinner.

Foods That Lower Blood Sugar For Type 2 Diabetics

Foods That Lower Blood Sugar For Type 2 Diabetics

Diabetes is a serious health condition which involves an inability of the body to naturally regulate its blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes, which usually comes later in life, occurs when the body either doesn't produce insulin or cannot recognize its production of insulin, an important hormone that moves glucose from the bloodstream to the cells where it is needed. When blood sugar builds up too high in the bloodstream, diabetics become at risk for serious side effects like neuropathy, heart disease and eye problems. There are medications to help reduce dangerously high blood sugar levels in diabetics, but luckily, several healthy foods can also reduce blood sugar levels. Video of the Day Chicken breasts are a healthy choice for type 2 diabetics who want to lower their blood sugar levels. According to the journal "Nutrition and Metabolism," foods which are high in dietary protein, such as chicken breasts, decrease blood sugar levels while at the same time increasing the secretion of insulin so that the body can move blood glucose (blood sugar) into the cells. The nutritional database CalorieKing.com states that a full 6.1 ounce chicken breast contains 53.4 g of protein, but no carbohydrates, which can increase blood sugar levels. There are two distinct yet important benefits of eating walnuts when it comes to lowering blood sugar levels. The high fat content in walnuts slows down the absorption of carbohydrates so that blood sugar levels rise more slowly, according to "Nutrition and Metabolism." The journal also states that dietary fat can increase insulin production, which can in turn lower blood glucose. Additionally, the fiber content of walnuts may help to negate the effect that carbohydrates have, raising blood sugar levels, states the Joslin Diabetes Center. Cal Continue reading >>

Gain better control over your blood sugars by holding the starch at dinner. An oversize restaurant portion of classic chicken parmesan can easily top 1,000 calories yikes! The traditional recipe starts with chicken thats coated in white refined bread crumbs and deep-fried in a vat of oil, jacking up the fat and carb count, and then smothered with fattening whole-milk cheese. To make a slimmer, low-carb version , nix the breading and frying: Instead grill or pan-saut plain boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Top each chicken breast with marinara sauce and shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, and place under the broiler just until the cheese melts. Hold the side of pasta, and instead serve this comforting entre with a giant mound of steamed broccoli. Continue reading >>

Grilled Marinated Chicken Breasts

Grilled Marinated Chicken Breasts

You are here: Home / Special Diets / Paleo / Grilled Marinated Chicken Breasts Grilled marinated chicken breasts? Big deal. Well, yes, it is a big deal actually. These may be the juiciest boneless chicken breasts Ive ever pulled off a grill. Try them for your Memorial Day cookout. If youre like me, you avoid grilling boneless breasts because its so easy for them to dry out (even with The Grillmasters considerable talents). The secret to juicy chicken, according to Giuliano Hazan in Hazan Family Favorites, is fresh lemon juice. Marinating in lemon juice kicks off the cooking process before you even fire up the grill so you dont have to cook the breasts as long and the meat stays moist. Brilliant! The Grillmaster was suffering from a miserable cold, so I decided to cook the chicken in a grill pan on the stove instead of on our Weber. I knew hed be twitching instead of resting if he knew I was near the charcoal. I went to snip from rosemary from the bush in our yard, then I remembered that little hurricane last summer that took no mercy on my herb garden. Im sure my neighbor wont miss that sprig of rosemary I borrowed. This recipe is easy, but I do want to warn you about one thing. After you flip the breasts, youre supposed to pour the marinade over the chicken while its on the grill (or in the pan). I tried to do this slowly and carefully because I wanted to make sure all parts of each piece of chicken got juiced. Big mistake. The steam created burned the heck out of my hand. I recommend you pour and get out quickly. I served this with Hazans Nonno Fins Beans . Disclosure: I received a free review copy of Hazan Family Favorites by Giuliano Hazan from ABRAMS. Lay the chicken breasts in a shallow baking dish large enough to accommodate them without overlapping. Peel and li Continue reading >>

6 chicken breasts, 6 ounces, each, bone in, fat and skin removed Prepare the coals in the barbecue or light the grill (if you're going to grill this right away). To make the BBQ sauce: place the tomato puree in a deep sauce pan. Add the onion and simmer slowly, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and add the mustard, lemon juice, sugar substitute, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce (if using), all-spice, ginger, and water. Simmer slowly for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Chicken Breast Raising Blood Glucose??

Chicken Breast Raising Blood Glucose??

I look forward to contribe findings in reference to food and diabities as that should be the focus for all of us. My glucose was about 137 yesterday night 7pm when I decides to eat grilled chicken with no carb whats so ever..plain chicken with sauce that included 2 tomatos, garlic, red and green pepper, small amount of ginger, red onion, cup of cooking red wine, chives, and green onion. Then my glucose went to 290, then to 260...fluctuating in between 260 and 290.. I am serious. I had to take 5 tests to confirm and it was 260, 290, 259, etc I mean , does fat and protien turn to glucose??? I googled it and can not find any answer.. You could be sick, under stress or something else that is causing your bg to rise. And were your hands completly clean. With soap, water, towel try? [FONT=Century Gothic][SIZE=3][COLOR=Magenta]Kris[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode] I thought it was stress, but can stress add 130 points to glucose ?? ....you know, with forume like this we will nail diabities and find the cure, I truely beleive that. So you do not think chicken can raise it eh ?...this is weired I am doing this experiment again tomorrow... today i will settle with tuna salad..brocolli, lettus, tomatos, turkey (no carb), olive oil, apple cidar vinegar, red onion, garlic.. no bread...will see the reaction since tuna has protien Just to let you know, yes fat and protein can be turned to glucose, but typically not unless you have no glucose yourself so that's probably not the case. How about the sauce you made, did you eat a lot of it? While all of the ingredients have few carbs if you had a lot of sauce that could add a few carbs, but I'm just grasping at straws. Every now and then D throws us a curveball so don't be too worried about it unless it's a constant thing. Continue reading >>
