Turkey Meatloaf - Helps Control Diabetes | Pritikin Recipe

Turkey Meatloaf - Helps Control Diabetes | Pritikin Recipe

Healthy Recipe from the Pritikin Cooking School "Healthy" does not have to mean "blah!" The award-winning chefs at Pritikin are masters at showing people how delicious healthy eating can be. Skinless, white-meat turkey and chicken are good choices, advises the Pritikin Eating Plan , because they're high in protein yet fairly low in saturated fat and cholesterol. The chefs in the Pritikin Cooking School have created many delectable poultry recipes, like this one. When it comes to choosing an entree for dinner, the Pritikin Eating Plan advises skinless, white-meat turkey or chicken for two reasons. These sources of poultry are high in protein and at the same time, reasonably low in cholesterol and saturated fat. When it comes to making a rich and satisfying meatloaf dish that is healthy but still delectable, extra lean ground turkey is the way to go. Use a food processor to grind the turkey. Once it's ground, add it to a large mixing bowl. Thoroughly combine all ingredients together. Pour the entire turkey mixture into the pan and spread it evenly. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 25 minutes. Remove meatloaf from the oven and allow pan to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Turkey Taco Soup: A Healthy Freezer Meal

Turkey Taco Soup: A Healthy Freezer Meal

So much deliciousness in a bowl of this turkey taco soup. And so much nutrition too! Some of the information in this post came from a conference in which both Bush Brothers and Company and The National Turkey Federation sponsored sessions. I was not asked to write this post. And as usual, these are my opinions based on scientific information and my many years of experience working with patients and cooking up a storm in my own kitchen. Theres no denying the benefits of a plant-rich diet, but so many of my patients are hesitant to eat beans and lentils because of theircarbohydrate content. I want even my patients with diabetes and prediabetes toeat plenty of beans. Beans have resistant starch , which has blood sugar benefits. See my previous post that includes a list of foods rich in resistant starch . Plus they have so much more like vitamins, protein, minerals, viscous fibers and a host ofhealth-boosting phytonutrients. Something that I found very interesting at my recent conference was research presentedby John L. Sievenpiper , MD, PhD, FRCPC of the University of Toronto. He showed that consuming beans and lentils (as part of a wholesome diet) improves blood sugar, cholesterol levels, blood pressure and even body weight. Most interesting to me was this statistic: As part of a healthful diet reduced in glycemic index, beans and lentils can lower blood sugar (as measured by A1C, an estimate of 3-month blood sugar control) as well as some diabetes medications. This is not a reason to stop your medications, but its a terrific reason to eat more beans, peas and lentils. You dont need to give up meat to benefit from a plant-rich diet. And this simple recipe is a great excuse to combine the two.In general, turkey is a wonderful meat to highlight strong flavors, and lean gro Continue reading >>

Impossibly Easy Turkey Taco Pie

Impossibly Easy Turkey Taco Pie

Ive made this before but instead of ground turkey breast, which is dry as a ground sponge, I use 85/15 ground beef, doubled the amount of cheese and used pepper jack. Also added 2 diced Serranos for some kick, to the meat as I browned it along with a can of sliced olives. Adding my own blend of Latin spices to the Bisquick really amps up the south of the boarder flavor. We ate it left over the next night and it made 4 nice comforting servings. One nice thing about this recipe is that it really is easy and quick. So yummy! Perfect for a quick family meal or as a covered dish for potlucks, picnics, or to a family with a new baby! This recipe was really easy and quick to make. I didn't really care much for the bisquick mix. The mix just tasted like having eggs on top of the turkey. Next time I would use tortilla chips instead. I made this last week...awesome. Easy. Added grated zucchini, sliced olives. This week I made it with chicken breast and thighs. Still good. Topped with sour cream, salsa, lettuce &tomato. 10/10 for taste and ease! Not bad recipe. I was not sure of the bisquick/egg/milk because of how runny it was, but it came out alright. Definitely will rework it, adding cheese to the bisquick mix, some extra flavorings, and mix up the cheese (monterey jack/muenster/mozzarella) not bad leftovers too! For only 250 calories(prior to the sour cream I'm sure), this is great! I add about a tablespoon of hot sauce to the Bisquick mix and it gives it a little kick! So simple and yummy!!! This is really yummy. I'm not a big fan of the bisquick part, it might be better without and just use tortilla chips instead. I'm confused, once you pour in the cooked turkey into the pie plate you then pour into the bisquick mixture? So there is no crust placed at the bottom, just the m Continue reading >>

Meatloaf gets a healthy (and still delicious!) makeover in this recipe.

Also, in place of using bread, a friend turned me on to using uncooked oatmeal. I found it lightens the meatloaf. But I must say, I never tried mixing turkey and ground beef, so that is something I definitely have to try. I would use ground chicken and instead of ketchup use tomato sauce and also use unsweetened almond milk to cut down on sugar. I would also use steel cut oat instead of bread.
