Adopting A Vegetarian Meal Plan

Adopting A Vegetarian Meal Plan

An Option to Consider The road to health is paved with vegetables, fruits, beans, rice and grains. – Polly Strand In the United States, vegetarianism has often been considered something of a fad or an aspect of an “alternative” lifestyle. In recent years, however, this way of eating has become more mainstream. Today, up to 10% of Americans call themselves vegetarians, although they don’t all define the word the same way. “Vegans” avoid all foods derived from animals and eat only plant-based foods. “Lacto-vegetarians” avoid meat, poultry, fish, and eggs but include dairy products in their diets along with plant foods. “Lacto-ovo vegetarians” eat eggs in addition to dairy products and plant foods. And “flexitarians” (sometimes called “semi-vegetarians”) follow a primarily plant-based diet but occasionally eat small amounts of meat, poultry, or fish. The reasons people adopt a vegetarian eating style are varied and may include concern for animals and/or the environment, personal health, and culture or religion. Following a vegetarian meal plan does appear to have health benefits. According to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarians are less likely than meat eaters to be overweight or obese or to have Type 2 diabetes. They also tend to have lower blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure, and they have lower rates of death from heart disease and prostate or colon cancer. The features of a vegetarian meal plan that may reduce the risk of chronic disease include lower intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals (chemical compounds found in plants that may be beneficial to human health). In many ways, the characteristics of a well-planne Continue reading >>

Healthy Vegetarian Spinach Rolls

Healthy Vegetarian Spinach Rolls

Sometimes I like to create new recipes from scratch based on what I have in the fridge, or I try to recreate dishes I remember from my childhood. I call this my test kitchen . As you would expect, the results arent always great, but sometimes I come up with a real winner, like these vegetarian spinach rolls.They are savory, filling, and just a little bit spicy! Whenever I see a recipe called something-roll, I always assume that it will be complicated and time-consuming to make. I mean, how often do you make any type of roll on a Thursday evening after getting home from work? Well, these spinach rolls are the exception! They look fancy, but you can make enough to feed your family for several days in less than an hour. And of that hour, almost 40 minutes is timespent in the oven, so you can do something else. I can spend an hour making spinach rolls on a Sunday if it means that my Monday and Tuesday dinners are taken care off as well. Its a really easy process and you dont need a lot of equipment. You can see the main steps here, or jump to the end of the post to read the detailed recipe. Mix spinach, eggs, mozzarella, garlic, salt, and pepper and spread the mixture evenly on a sheet of parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 F (200 C). After about 3 minutes,mix in the cottage cheese and spices. Take the pan off the heat and quickly mix in an egg (do it quickly so it doesnt turn into a lump of scrambled egg). Spread the filling over the baked spinach mixture and roll it up. Bake the spinach roll in the oven at 400 F (200 C) for 25 minutes. The filling is REALLY hot when it comes out of the oven, so let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. The best thing about this recipe (besides how great it tastes and how easy it is to make so really the third best thing, I gue Continue reading >>

Vegan Diet For Diabetes – Meal And Snack Ideas

Vegan Diet For Diabetes – Meal And Snack Ideas

Changing Your Diet to Manage Diabetes Dietary modifications are the foundation for treating pre-diabetes and full-on Type 2 diabetes. If you’ve been trying the standard diabetic diet without much alleviation in your symptoms, you might want to run the vegan diabetic diet by your doctor or Registered Dietitian. The most popular dietary treatment for diabetes recommends that patients restrict portion sizes, measure and weigh all their food, and diligently monitor the grams of carbohydrates eaten at every meal, with strict limits on carb intake. However, evidence from scientific studies suggests that a different dietary approach may be more effective and easier to follow. Part of the value of a low-fat, plant-based diet is that it is very low in saturated fat—that is, the kind of fat that is found especially in meats, dairy products, and tropical oils (coconut, palm, or palm kernel oil). Dr. Neal Barnard says that to cut the fat out of your diet and increase insulin sensitivity of your cells, you’ll want to do two things: avoid animal-derived products and avoid added vegetable oils. Although oils are promoted as being healthier for us than fat derived from animal meat or dairy products, reality is that they are just as high in calories and just as fattening for someone who needs to lose weight. For more information on how to change your diet to a vegan, plant-centered diabetes eating plan, check out Dr. Neal Barnard’s book. MEAL SUGGESTIONS BREAKFAST— Often breakfast can be similar to the one you are accustomed to with a few simple modifications. • Hot cereals: oatmeal with cinnamon, raisins, and/or applesauce • All-Bran or muesli with nonfat soy or rice milk and/or berries, peach, or banana • Apples, strawberries, bananas, oranges or other fruit • Pumper Continue reading >>

Diabetic Snacks: What To Eat And What To Skip

Diabetic Snacks: What To Eat And What To Skip

"Don't eat between meals." That's one piece of advice diabetics might want to take with a grain of salt. If you go more than four or five hours between meals, a mid-afternoon snack might be just what the doctor ordered to help you keep your blood sugar steady. Snacking is also important if you're taking medication that could cause a blood-sugar low between meals. Discuss with your doctor or a registered dietitian what snacking approach is right for you. Keep your snacks to 150 calories or less The danger of snacks is that they can become more like extra meals if you go overboard. First, make sure you're truly hungry—and not just bored or stressed or craving chocolate—before reaching for a snack. Then limit yourself to 150 calories per snack. (Cutting calories is easier than you think.) This will help keep your snacking "honest." After all, it's hard to find a candy bar with only 150 calories. And if you're hankering for a candy bar, but a healthier snack doesn't appeal, you're probably not truly hungry. Beware of low-fat snacks Studies show that people tend to eat about 28 percent more of a snack when it's low-fat because they think they're saving on calories. But low-fat snacks, such as cookies, only have about 11 percent fewer calories than their full-fat counterparts. Stick to the same amount you'd eat if you thought the snack was full-fat. Need more snack ideas? Check out these delicious snacks for adults. Check the ingredients Avoid heavily processed crackers and chips. If the list of ingredients is long and has big words with lots of syllables, put it back on the shelf. Stay away from these worst eating habits for diabetics. Watch those carbs Carbohydrates are major culprits when it comes to raising blood sugar (though there are some good carbs for diabetes). Continue reading >>

15 Best Snack Foods For Diabetics

Figuring out the right snack foods in between meals is hard enough for most people, but what if you're one of the 18.8 million people in the United States who have been diagnosed with diabetes? The options may seem even more limited. That's why we've put together a list of 15 diabetic-friendly snacking options based on advice from a few experts. Click here to see the 15 Best Snack Foods for Diabetics Slideshow Lori Kenyon is a certified nutritional consultant, personal trainer, and co-founder of Ritual Cleanse. She was diagnosed early on in her life with a disorder that prevented her from consuming animal protein and has since had to adapt her diet to compensate. Kenyon advises clients to consume snacks which contain no more than 20 grams of carbohydrates and 140 milligrams of sodium per serving, in accordance with American Diabetes Association guidelines. Stella Metsovas is a certified clinical nutritionist who specializes in food science and human nutrition, with more than 23 years of experience in the field. She is a strong believer in the Paleo-Mediterranean diet and runs a private practice in Los Angeles. Angela Shelf Medearis is the author of The Kitchen Diva's Diabetic Cookbook and has been featured frequently on The Dr. Oz Show as a guest chef, where she is known simply as The Kitchen Diva. She offers some great general snacking advice from her cookbook: Portion sizes are key. Keeping the glycemic load down (a measurement of how much food spikes blood glucose levels) means cutting down on portion sizes, since the measurement accounts for the number of grams of carbohydrates per serving of a food item, which of course will increase with portion sizes. Eating huge portions of even healthy snacks can quickly turn them unhealthy. Snacks between meals can help you re Continue reading >>

The Ultimate Anti-diabetes Diet

The Ultimate Anti-diabetes Diet

One of America's most common killer diseases, type 2 diabetes, jeopardizes the health, quality of life, and longevity of nearly 24 million Americans, according to the American Diabetes Association, and that number continues to rise. New cases have doubled over the past 30 years, and because the disease occurs gradually and often with no obvious symptoms, many people don't even know they have it. People who are overweight are at higher risk because fat interferes with the body's ability to use insulin, the crux of the disease. But a solution to the problem is within reach: a groundbreaking eating plan not only helps prevent this chronic disease, but actually reverses it while also promoting weight loss. Focusing on plant-based meals,the revolutionary plan was developed by Vegetarian Times former Ask the Doc columnist, Neal Barnard, MD, and is backed by the results of his long-term study. Your doctor may not tell you about this diet: dietitians generally counsel overweight diabetics to cut calories, reduce serving sizes, and avoid starchy carbohydrates that raise blood sugar levels. But Barnard's team at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and scientists at George Washington University and the University of Toronto thought this might be the wrong approach, considering that carbohydrate-rich rice, legumes, and root vegetables are staples throughout Asia and Africa, where most people are thin and diabetes rates are low. Barnard and his team studied a group of diabetics, comparing the effects of a diet based on standard recommendations versus a vegan-style diet with no limits on calories, carbs, or portions, and just three rules: eliminate meat, dairy, and eggs; minimize fat and oil; and favor low-glycemic foods (such as beans, vegetables, brown rice, and oatme Continue reading >>

5 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Diabetics

5 Delicious And Healthy Snacks For Diabetics

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects an estimated 50 million people in our country. According to the Diabetes Foundation of India (DFI), this figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025, making India the 'Diabetes Capital' of the world. Diabetes requires life-long management and control. Certain lifestyle changes and a strict diet can help curb further health hazards. Nutritionists often recommend that diabetics should eat small and frequent meals to keep their blood sugar levels in check. Therefore, it is important to sneak in some healthy snacks between your meals. According to Nutritionist Dr. Rupali Dutta, 'Diabetics should have snacks that are rich in protein, full of fiber and whole grains and low in fat. If a person is on a 1400-calorie diet, he or she must have snacks with 100-150 calories and not more than that. This may include besan ka cheela, a piece or two of paneer, a piece of cheese, low calorie popcorn, sprouts or one fruit which does not include banana, chikoo or mango. You should eat foods that are low on the glycemic index." Dietitian Lokendra Tomar from Weight Loss Clinic in New Delhi agrees, "Diabetics must have snacks that are extremely low on the glycemic index and high on protein. You can choose nuts and seeds like chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and walnuts as they contain healthy oils, fats and proteins. Generally, people have a habit of snacking on zero-calorie or sugar-free biscuits. However, I would not recommend them as they contain a high amount of artificial sugar which may increase blood sugar levels drastically. Similarly, in the morning try and avoid oats or cornflakes as they have 60-70 percent of carbohydrates that break down into sugar in the body. Instead, replace oats with yogurt and chia seeds mixed with Continue reading >>
