Dinner Ideas For People With Type 2 Diabetes

Dinner Ideas For People With Type 2 Diabetes

Every 23 seconds, someone in the United States is diagnosed with diabetes. But although diabetes is widespread, public awareness and understanding of the disease can be limited. The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) report that 29 million Americans currently have diabetes, but a quarter of them do not know it. Another 86 million adults have prediabetes, with 90 percent of them being unaware. Diabetes is a serious disease that can, if uncontrolled, lead to loss of eyesight, cardiovascular problems, kidney damage, and even amputation of lower limbs. The good news is, it can be managed and these serious health problems can be avoided. Diet techniques for diabetes The even better news is that diabetes can be managed through a combination of exercise, health care, and diet. Despite popular belief, a diet can be varied, tasty, and fulfilling. The "diabetic plate" Maintaining a consistent, well-balanced diet can help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar levels under control. Portion control is also important, which is where the "diabetic plate" comes in. Endorsed by several organizations, including the American Diabetes Association, the "diabetic plate" can be very helpful when planning dinners. Follow these simple steps: Draw an imaginary line down the center of your plate. Divide one half into two further sections, so that your plate is now divided into three. Fill the biggest section with non-starchy vegetables, such as spinach, green beans, salsa, mushrooms, broccoli, or others. Use proteins to fill one of the smaller sections. Good options are skinless chicken, salmon, shrimp, tempeh or tofu, eggs, and much more. Legumes can fit in either the protein or the starch section because they provide both protein and carbohydrate. Grains, legumes and starch Continue reading >>

The lamb is marinated in a brightly spiced marinade featuring cilantro, onion, lime, garlic, ginger , and garam masala, threaded on skewers, and served over bulgur. If you'd rather not make your own garam masala, look for the spice blend in the ethnic section of large supermarkets or at food specialty shops. Lime does double duty in this recipe, both in the marinade and the dressing. Its tart flavor enhances the grilled beef, the tomatoes, and the honey-kissed dressing. Large, juicy shrimp and succulent scallops keep company with tender onion and zucchini in these spicy-hot grilled kabobs. A brushing sauce of mashed chipotle peppers and cumin provide plenty of fire. Juicy chicken breasts go Southwestern with this salsa bursting with pineapple, chipotle pepper, and lime. Plain yogurt adds the creamy texture to the garlic-lemon dressing, which is tossed with greens and parmesan cheese, then topped with broiled salmon. This chicken recipe has all the best ingredients of Italy -- black olives, capers, garlic, fresh basil, red wine, olive oil, and tomatoes. Perfect for a meal on a hot day. This flavorful broiled fish dish has only 123 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Packed with B vitamins, protein, and vitamin C, this summer salad packs a nutritional punch.

The flavors of asparagus and shrimp flourish with the addition of a balsamic vinaigrette. This salad has the makings of an elegant meal and deserves to be included on a special celebration menu.
