Grilled Turkey Burgers

Grilled Turkey Burgers

1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed 12 ounces uncooked ground turkey or chicken breast 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted In a medium bowl stir together carrot, green onions, bread crumbs, milk, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground turkey; mix well. Form the turkey mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Place patties on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 11 to 13 minutes or until patties are done (165 degrees F),* turning once halfway through grilling time. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together mustard and curry powder. Spread buns with mustard mixture. Top with burgers and, if desired, lettuce and tomato. Makes 4 servings. TO BROIL: Place patties on the unheated greased rack of a foil-lined broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 11 to 13 minutes turning once halfway through broiling time. Doneness indicator: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey or chicken patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.

Harlan, MD, FACP | Terms of Use | Privacy Policy What is your opinion of stevia andthe Truvia brand blended stevia? I am lactose intolerant and pre-diabetic. Is AlmondBreeze milk substitute safe for me? For the last couple years I have been feeding my family ground turkey in all recipes that call for ground beef. After a friend made a comment that the ground turkey wasn't always better for you I checked the labels. The 85/15 turkey is not as healthy as the 90/10 ground beef from a calorie and fat comparison. In fact, the ground turkey had a lot more calories and fat. So now I am wondering if we should be eating the lean ground beef (90/10 or higher) instead of the ground turkey. I have tried the ground turkey that is 90/10 and it does not have much flavor. Is there a benefit to eating ground turkey over ground beef? We only eat ground turkey once or twice a week. We get a lot of great questions here and this is one of my favorites recently. I use both ground turkey and ground beef in recipes. Most of the time I do this for flavor and not as much for health reasons. In some dishes I like the more mellow flavor of the turkey vs. beef. Ground turkey can be leaner but it depends on what Continue reading >>

Healthy Tacos With Ground Beef, Turkey, And Veggies

Healthy Tacos With Ground Beef, Turkey, And Veggies

Health Tips Natural Health Remedies Diet & Fitness Food & Nutrition Healthy Tacos with Ground Beef, Turkey, and Veggies Healthy Tacos with Ground Beef, Turkey, and Veggies February 25, 2013 (Updated: March 17, 2014) Heres a meal you can feel good about serving. Its loaded with lean protein, healthy veggies, and lots of flavor. Once you taste it, youll know why its a favorite at my house. Instead of using premade taco shells, I suggest oven baking low-fat corn or gluten-free tortillas for more healthful shells. Preheat the oven to 350F, lightly spray olive oil on both sides of each tortilla, and drape each shell over two metal strips on the oven rack (so they fold like a taco shell). Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes or until just crispy. Keep an eye on the tortillas because they can go from crispy to burnt quickly. Put beef, turkey, and onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally while breaking up chunks of meat. When meat is thoroughly cooked, add garlic, and cook for 2 more minutes. Add zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms, tomatoes, and seasonings to the meat and onion mixture. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for an additional 4 to 6 minutes, until most of the tomato liquid is gone. Additional ingredients for tacos (choose your favorites): 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (approximately 3 ounces) Assemble tacos by filling each shell with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the meat mixture and 1 tablespoon or so of your favorite toppings.

Need Your Help Beef Vs Turkey

Need Your Help Beef Vs Turkey

By Beav Latest Reply2010-01-04 23:05:32 -0600 I have for many years now (even before I was told about my type 2 diabetes) used ground turkey meat instead of ground beef in my meals. I like italian dishes and also use it in soups and other (beef sub)meals. I would like to hear your opinion Beef vs Turkey. Thanks in advance. Also I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year! :) I found that the meat departments use a lot of dark meat in their ground turkey. That has a lot more fat etc that the breast meat. The breast meat can be a little dry so I add broth or water to it and it works just fine. I do the same thing when I use lean beef (which is all the time) for hamb. or meatloaf etc. I just add a little water and it makes it more tender and moist. My kids don't like turkey so this is one of the few times when I make a different meal. However, I buy 1/2 of a breast either pre-roasted or I brine and roast it myself. I use it for my lunch in sandwiches, soups, and salads. I always remove the skin off the serving portion. Organic and heirloom birds have less fat than commercially grown birds so if you want a moist bird you may have to add some type of fat. Check the % of fat on your turkey package. Sometimes they leave the skin on instead of removing it to grind. If you have the butcher use a cut of meat from the display case, and remove the fat and skin, you know you have lean ground turkey. Ever since I was told I had type 2, I've been eating more and more ground turkey. I like it cause you can sneak it past the kids and hubby and they don't even realize what it is. I like it cause you can prepare it so many different ways and makes a good nutritious meal. For some recipes I find the turkey is a bit dry so for those recipes I use a mixture of turkey and beef Continue reading >>

Turkey Meatloaf (comfort Food On A Diabetes-compatible Scale)

Turkey Meatloaf (comfort Food On A Diabetes-compatible Scale)

I love meat loaf. It is one of the great comfort foods. Even better, it makes an amazing sandwich the next day. Back in the “old” days I started using ground turkey in place of beef in order to cut down on the fat in my diet. However, the original reason for meatloaf was to stretch the food dollar by adding “cheaper” bread to expensive meat to make it go further. This is the problem for so many of us with diabetes. We need to count our carbs. Over the years I have come to like it even more than regular meat loaf. It is not just a “substitute”, it speaks very well on its own. You need to judge for yourself. I have discovered that Panko works better than bread crumbs in this recipe. It absorbs more liquid using a smaller amount than fine crumbs and adds a nice texture to the loaf. The use of parmesan cheese helps to replace some of the bread usually found in a meatloaf. The cheese is far lower in carbohydrates than the bread and tastes so much better. **Special note** For those of you that don’t like mushrooms, and I know you are out there, you can use chopped sundried tomatoes or just more onion in their place. —Ward Alper, The Decadent Diabetic Welcome to the Type 2 Diabetes Center!

10 Diet Commandments For Better Diabetes Management

10 Diet Commandments For Better Diabetes Management

Twitter Summary: The ten diet commandments I follow for healthy eating w/ #diabetes + how to write your own & overcome obstacles A colorful, downloadable PDF of this article can be found here (convenient for printing!) The question – “What diet should I follow?” – has perhaps never been more confusing, more controversial, or more stressful. There are more diets, diet books, diet opinions, and news headlines than ever before. In reality, no single “diet” trumps them all, especially for people with diabetes – all approaches have their pros and cons, whether you’re talking about health effects (e.g., blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol), cost, convenience, or taste. So instead of a “diet,” I prefer to think about eating in terms of general strategies, or what this article is calling my “commandments.” After experimenting with many different eating approaches over the years, I’ve homed in on ten eating commandments that I strive to follow every day – these strategies seem to keep my blood sugars in range, give me plenty of energy, are transportable to different eating environments, are relatively convenient, and fit within my budget. Of course, eating preferences are highly personal (especially in diabetes), and my own principles may not apply for everyone. If you find this article useful, check out my upcoming book, Bright Spots & Landmines! A Starting Point: Brainstorming Your Eating Commandments 1. When you see your best blood sugars (ideally 80-140 mg/dl) 90 minutes after a meal, what did you eat? How did you eat? When and where did you eat? How did you manage your diabetes around these times? 2. When you see higher blood sugars (over 200 mg/dl) 90 minutes after a meal, what did you eat? How did you eat? When and where did you eat?

Stock Your Kitchen For Diabetes Health

Stock Your Kitchen For Diabetes Health

Eating healthy, balanced meals is the key to managing your diabetes. Good nutrition not only helps you control your blood sugar levels, but it also lowers your blood pressure and cholesterol and keeps cravings at bay. When you have the right foods on hand, it’s much easier to stick to a healthy meal plan. Not sure what to stock? Add these must-haves to your shopping list. Beans “Kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, and garbanzo beans are all great for blood glucose control,” says Jessica Bennett, a dietitian at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “They’re high in fiber and take a long time to digest.” Beans offer a lot of options. They make a tasty side dish, or you can add them to salads, soups, casseroles, and chili. They’re also a great stand-in for meat because they’re high in protein but low in fat. Dried beans are a better choice than canned. They contain less sodium. Soak them overnight and they’ll be ready to cook in the morning. If you go for the ones in a can, rinse them first. That’ll keep the salt down. Salt-Free Seasonings Spices are a great way to jazz up your meals without adding calories or carbs. Just be sure to avoid ones with salt. “Red pepper flakes, oregano, curry, cinnamon, turmeric, and garlic powder [not salt] are all great options,” Bennett says. Whole Grains They’re packed with fiber, but finding them isn’t as easy as it may seem. Some foods only contain a small amount, even though it says “contains whole grain” on the package. Read the ingredients label and look for the following sources to be listed first: Bulgur (cracked wheat) Whole wheat flour Whole oats/oatmeal Whole-grain corn or cornmeal Popcorn Brown rice Whole rye Whole-grain barley Whole farro Wild rice Buckwheat Buckwheat flour Quinoa Bennett sug Continue reading >>

Diabetes Shares November With Turkey, Which Diabetics Should Eat | The State

Diabetes Shares November With Turkey, Which Diabetics Should Eat | The State

Diabetes shares November with turkey, which diabetics should eat | The State In the midst of giving thanks and eating turkey dinners, November is also known as Diabetes Awareness Month. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Dr. Janice Key, co-chairwoman of the S.C. Medical Association Childhood Obesity Taskforce, answers common questions about type 2 diabetes. How is type 2 diabetes different from type 1 diabetes? Diabetes mellitus is a disease that causes high blood sugar (glucose) due to a problem with the sugar controlling hormone, insulin. There are two types of diabetes: one in which there is not enough insulin produced by the pancreas (type 1) and one in which there is plenty of insulin but the body is resistant to it and is unable to use it normally (type 2). Sign up today for a free 30 day free trial of unlimited digital access. Being overweight or obese carries the greatest risk for developing type 2, however, the risk is not the same for all people. If your parents or grandparents have type 2 diabetes, you should be especially careful to keep your weight in a healthy range as you might have a genetic predisposition to obesity-related type 2 diabetes. The high blood sugar caused by diabetes coats the lining of blood vessels throughout the body, causing those blood vessels to become clogged, damaging every organ in the body. Over time, this can result in kidney failure (requiring dialysis), poor circulation in the legs (requiring amputation), blindness, stroke and heart attacks. Diabetes has such a gradual effect that people usually cant feel it happening. Some symptoms, such as lack of energy and fatigue, are so nonspecific that people dont think of diabetes. In fact, undiagnosed diabetes can even cause a silent heart attack. The only real way t Continue reading >>

What Should I Eat If I Have Diabetes?

What Should I Eat If I Have Diabetes?

I am type 2 diabetic trying to create a daily diet, and snacks, food program that I can use to prevent getting the terrible sick feeling that comes when my sugar goes too low. I would like to store these foods and snacks in my home so that I can reach them when necessary. Please name the foods, and snacks, as well as the proper times to consume them. Also when is the time to take Metformin even if your readings are regular and you feel OK? Thank you for your answer to these questions. Hi, Barbara. To prevent hypoglycemia and to minimize the complications associated with diabetes including heart disease, kidney disease, eye problems and infection, it is important to keep blood sugar levels as steady as possible throughout the day. To accomplish this, I recommend trying to combine some type of lean protein (skinless chicken, fish, turkey, lean ground beef, beans, egg whites, low-fat cottage cheese or yogurt) or healthy fat (olive oil, canola oil, nuts, seeds, avocado) with a healthy carbohydrate with each meal or snack. Make sure to choose healthy, low-sugar, antioxidant-rich carbohydrates like whole grains (brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, whole-grain bread, cereal, crackers, quinoa, barley), whole fruit (not juice or dried fruit) and vegetables. These types of carbohydrates are generally low-glycemic, which means they increase blood sugar less rapidly than highly processed, refined, sugar-filled carbohydrates. Naturally high-fiber foods are always a good choice as they slow the emptying of food from your stomach, which helps improve blood sugar control. By preventing spikes in blood sugar, you can also prevent the crashes that follow. It is also important to try to eat regularly throughout the day. Try not to let more than four hours go by without having either a meal or Continue reading >>
