Best And Worst Meals For Diabetes-savvy Dining

Best And Worst Meals For Diabetes-savvy Dining

Balance Your Choices When you have type 2 diabetes, you need to eat a good mix of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. So what's a well-balanced dinner? A power breakfast? The following meal examples can help you make better choices. Some people find it helps to count carbs. Keep in mind recommendations from your doctor or nutritionist, too. The Count: 2,060 calories, 276 g carbs No food is off-limits with diabetes, but this brunch will blow your carb and calorie budget in a hurry. Experts suggest that meals for people with diabetes should have 45-75 grams of carbohydrates, depending on individual goals. Your body weight, activity, and medications all matter. This meal packs enough carbs for four to five meals. The Count: 294 calories, 40 g carbs This quick meal delivers protein in a scrambled egg, and just 40 carbs, mostly from fiber-rich oatmeal and blueberries. Fiber slows digestion to help prevent blood sugar spikes. People with diabetes need to watch all types of carbs: cereal, bread, rice, pasta, starchy veggies, sweets, fruit, milk, and yogurt. Spread your total carbs across the day. The Count: 1,760 calories, 183 g carbs. Before one bite of burrito, you can get 98 grams of carbs and 810 calories in a basket of chips and salsa. If you're trying to slim down and eat less sodium, like many people with diabetes, the burrito adds 950 calories. You also get way more than a whole day's worth of sodium. The Count: 443 calories, 48 g carbs Lean beef and black beans make this Mexican dish a good option for a diabetic diet. The fiber in the beans can help lower blood cholesterol and control blood sugar. Go heavy on the veggies and light on cheese. Enjoy 10 small corn chips (1 ounce) with a little guacamole. The Count: 2,510 calories, 83 g carbs This classic Southern m Continue reading >>

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 >>

Savory Pot Roast With Vegetables

Savory Pot Roast With Vegetables

Ingredients Directions Rinse roast and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides with pepper. Lightly coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add roast and sear until well browned on all sides, about 8 minutes total cooking time. In a 4-quart or larger crockery slow-cooker, combine carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Place browned roast on top of the vegetables. In a large mixing cup, combine wine, tomato paste, Dijon mustard, thyme, and bay leaves. Pour over roast and vegetables. Cover and cook until roast is very tender when pierced with a fork, about 8 to 9 hours on LOW or 4 to 5 hours on HIGH. When beef is done, transfer the roast to a heated serving platter. If cooking on LOW, turn the slow-cooker on HIGH. Skim any fat from the surface of the sauce. Add salt (if using). Pour the blended cornstarch mixture into the cooker and cook, stirring often, until sauce is bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove vegetables from sauce and arrange around the roast. Transfer sauce to a gravy boat to pass alongside. To serve, carve the beef against the grain into thin slices. Serve at once. Welcome to the Type 2 Diabetes Center! This is your launching pad for living better with type 2 diabetes.

What To Eat At Christmas If You Have Diabetes

What To Eat At Christmas If You Have Diabetes

Enjoying the indulgent festive season can be a struggle for people with diabetes. Pav Kalsi, clinical advisor at Diabetes UK, shares some tips to enjoy Christmas if you have the condition... Eating at Christmas is part of the fun, and there’s no need to completely miss out on certain foods. But a healthy diet is important for managing diabetes, so if you have the condition then you can always consider having healthy versions of classic Christmas dishes. This might mean adapting recipes so that they are more balanced, lower in fat and include plenty of vegetables and fruit. If you are planning a party it’s also a good idea to keep healthy snacks such as vegetable crudités or dried fruit around so that you’ve got an alternative. Festive glucose glitch At some point during the festive period, you may find that you have higher blood glucose levels than normal due to being less active than usual, overindulging or changing your routine. Don’t worry about one or two high readings as this shouldn’t affect your long-term diabetes control, but aim to avoid persistently high readings in order to avoid compromising your health. Don't get stuck on the sofa Making sensible food choices and keeping physically active could help you to control blood glucose levels, blood pressure and blood fats and to manage weight. There are lots of easy and fun ways to fit in some physical activity. A brisk walk is a great way to stay active – and it still counts if it’s in a shopping centre checking out the sales. Jumping about with the children, dancing at a party, or skating at a local or pop up ice rink all help towards keeping healthy during a typically overindulgent period. Make sensible choices (but still enjoy yourself!) Here are some examples of the kind of easy ways you can cu Continue reading >>

Sunday Roast

Sunday Roast

D.D. Family T2 since May 2007 - Metformin I thought this weekend that I'd cook a Sunday roast dinner which I have not had since dx. I had lots of roast chicken, loads of veg, one medium roast potato, a small amount of stuffing oh and gravy. I started at 6.2 which was high pre dinner for me and ended up 5.4 two hrs later and 5.0 three hrs later! It might not have been the lowest fat meal I've eaten but I'm still well chuffed with those numbers! So Iguess it's all round to mine next sunday good when you find a meal that works for you measure again next week and see if it's repeatable for you Thats great that it worked. Do you have any left overs that you can pack up and send me? I love chicken/turkey dinners. [FONT=Century Gothic][SIZE=3][COLOR=Magenta]Kris[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Lucida Sans Unicode] D.D. Family T2 since May 2007 - Metformin I really wish you all could come round for dinner! Funny enough years ago a friend was dxd and came round. I cooked the same dinner as well as a trifle ok for D's for desert. He told me his bg 2 hrs later was the lowest it had been since he was dxd! Yummy, I did this last week and it worked out well for me also. I am going to try a pork roast this week to see if I get along with that. D.D. Family T2 since May 2007 - Metformin Debbie please let me know how you get on with roast pork? I'm not sure if I understood correctly what I think I was told, but metformin changes the way food is digested and the level of fat can change how this all works. (Stump aka Shaun might know more). I used minimal extra virgin olive oil for the potatoes and parsnips and I used chicken gravy as it was lower carb and fat than beef gravy. Debbie please let me know how you get on with roast pork? I'm not sure if I understood correctly what I think I was to Continue reading >>

Simple Switches: Roast Dinner

Simple Switches: Roast Dinner

A few simple swaps can make family roast dinners healthier, without skimping on flavour. Seasoning and gravy add to the deliciousness of a roast. To keep your salt intake to a minimum, don't automatically reach for the salt cellar season with pepper, and make use of garlic and any herbs you like. If youre making gravy from your roast meat, skim the fat off the top before serving skimming just one tablespoon of fat cuts 12g of fat and at least 100 calories. It can often be the meat that makes your roast. So stick to leaner choices chicken and turkey are high in protein and low in fat. You don't even need to add any oil just remove the skin and add lemon and garlic to give it a great flavour. It'll cook in its own juices and stay tender. If you go for beef, trim off any visible fat before cooking. Vegetarian? For a meat alternative, you can also buy roast meat substitutes, which are generally lower in fat and calories. Make your roast potatoes big and chunky, as therell be less surface area to soak up oil. Rapeseed oil is a good choice for roasts, but you could opt for a low-calorie cooking spray instead. Cook roast potatoes with rosemary and garlic for extra flavour. You could even use sweet potatoes and butternut squash in the roasting tray for a modern twist on the traditional. Add lots of your favourite veg for more colour and nutrition. Steam your greens, such as broccoli and cabbage, and roast root veg, like parsnips and carrots. Just cut up your root veg into equal pieces, toss in some olive oil and roast until golden. Continue reading >>
