Vinaigrette | Diabetic Mediterranean Diet

Vinaigrette | Diabetic Mediterranean Diet

How to Make a Super Salad Into a WholeMeal You wont be able to eat this in one sitting if youre small or sedentary This huge salad is a full meal. It fills a 10-inch plate (25 cm). Since it contains five vegetables, you should feel virtuous eating it. But dont use that health halo as an excuse for eating a carton of ice cream for dessert. 8 oz (230 g) raw chicken breast tenderloin (it cooks down to 5 oz) 1/4 cup (60 ml) canned mandarin orange wedges (6-7 wedges) (if you can only find these packed in syrup or light syrup, add 3 g to the digestible carb count below) 2.5 oz (1/4 cucumber or 70 g) cucumber, peeled and sliced into discs 2 oz (60 g) California avocado, peeled and seeded, cut into wedges (1/2 of standard-sized avocado) 3 oz (85 g) fresh tomato (a typical roma or small tomato) 2 tbsp (30 ml) vinegar (we used balsamic) 1/4 tsp (1.2 ml) fresh ground black pepper Like Deborah on Everybody Loves Raymond, my wife often makes lemon chicken First cook the chicken breast over medium heat in a skillet. If you think the meat will stick to the pan, add a smidgen (1/2 tsp or 2.5 ml) of olive oil to the pan. Dont overcook or the meat will get tough. Itll take five or 10 minutes. While thats cooking, prepare your vinaigrette. In a jar with a lid, place the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and rosemary, then shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Not 21 or youll ruin it. Youre done. If you use a commercial vinaigrette instead, use one that has no more than 2 g of carbohydrate per 2 tbsp. You may have trouble finding that since so many of the commercial guys add sugar. Place the lettuce and spinach on a plate then add the cucumber, avocado, tomato, cooked chicken, walnuts, and mandarin orange wedges on top. Drizzle two or three tbsp of the vinaigrette over it (nutritional analysis Continue reading >>

The Best Vinegars For Diabetes

The Best Vinegars For Diabetes

David Mendosa | July 15, 2016 Dec 14, 2016 Vinegar has so many uses, ranging from cooking and canning to cleaning. But it’s especially valuable if you have diabetes. The problem is to learn what type of vinegar to use for cooking, salad dressing, and blood glucose management. People have been using vinegar for at least 5,000 years, so we now have more types than we can count. For people with diabetes, these are the ones to know. This is the least expensive and most widely available type of vinegar. It has the most uses, too. Because distilled white vinegar is the most acidic, it has the strongest taste. While people use it more often as a folk remedy, cleaner, disinfectant, pesticide, and in their laundry than in cooking, its clean, crisp flavor works well in salads, marinades, and many recipes. This type costs more than distilled white vinegar, but is the second most common vinegar in our kitchens – with good reason. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar has good flavor and may have many medicinal properties . This strong brown vinegar holds up well to any of the pungent greens that you might like in your salads. The apple cider vinegar I use the most is organic, raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurized. Many people prefer red or white wine vinegars, which are less acidic than distilled white or apple cider vinegars. These full-bodied vinegars are as good as apple cider vinegar for bringing out the flavor of the greens in your salad. Champagne and sherry are two of the best specialty wine vinegars. Any of these wine vinegars are good for making marinades or to liven up soup or chili. This vinegar adds freshness, but with yet lower acidity than wine vinegar. Rice vinegar combines well with sesame oil. Most commonly used in Asian dishes, rice vinegar from Japan has a sweet, ligh Continue reading >>

Salad Dressing For Diabetics

Salad Dressing For Diabetics

If you have diabetes, choosing the right foods in the right amounts and eating them at the right time can become challenging and even overwhelming. Although salads are a healthy way to increase your vegetable intake, what you put on your salad can make the difference between a healthy meal and a high-calorie and fat-loaded meal. Salad dressings add a lot of flavor to salads, but it is important to know how to choose a healthy salad dressing to stay healthy with diabetes. Video of the Day To keep your blood sugar levels under control with diabetes, carbohydrate intake is your main concern. Mainly found in grains, sugar, starchy vegetables, fruits and some dairy, carbohydrates are broken down into sugar and cause your blood sugar levels to rise after being absorbed. Although salad dressings usually provide few carbohydrates, commercially prepared salad dressings, especially low-fat and low-calorie versions, may contain added sugar. Some "light" salad dressings can contain up to 5 g of carbohydrates per tablespoon, which can quickly add up, depending on the amount you use. When choosing a salad dressing, have a look at the carbohydrate content and avoid the ones containing added sugar. Type of Fat The type of fat used to make a salad dressing have a big influence on how it impacts your blood cholesterol levels and cardiovascular risk. Prioritize salad dressings made with monounsaturated fat-rich fats, because of their ability to lower LDL cholesterol levels. Olive oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil and canola oil are examples of oils rich in monounsaturated fats. Look at the label to know what type of fats are present in your salad dressing. The amount of salad dressing you drizzle on your salad is also an important factor to consider. Salad dressing are dense in calories and Continue reading >>

It is versatile enough to use with regular salads, spicy dishes, vegetables and even as an accompaniment to certain kinds of fish and poultry.

This will allow the proper portions of dressing to be stretched further through the course. Continue reading >>

Homemade Berry Balsamic Salad Dressing

Homemade Berry Balsamic Salad Dressing

You are here: Home / Life as a Plate Food Blog / Sauces, Dips / Homemade Berry Balsamic Salad Dressing Theres a commercial brand of Berry Balsamic dressing thats awesome and all-natural. I absolutely love it on greens, especially with some goat cheese and walnuts. Its also amazing on roasted beets. The ingredients, though none artificial or gross, do contain sugar. And while Im okay with a small amount of it normally in things where its necessary, for the sake of the last eight weeks and my Look Better Naked Challenge, I decided to try and re-create it without sugar. It came out awesome and very close to the original and made with whole natural ingredients. And way, way, WAY cheaper than the store-bought one (although I do have give credit to the store-bought one for using decent ingredients.)

Vinaigrette | Paleo Diabetic

Vinaigrette | Paleo Diabetic

Posted on April 2, 2014 | Comments Off on Whats a Cruet? If youre trying to lose weight or keep from getting fat, salads are helpful. I recommend them in my Advanced Mediterranean Diet , Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet , Paleobetic Diet , and Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet . My favorite salad dressings are vinaigrettes. They can be as simple as olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. The problem with most commercial vinaigrettes is the label says _____ Vinaigrette with olive oil, but the first listed ingredient is soybean oil (or some other industrial seed oil) and olive oil is somewhere down the line. My current favorite commercial salad dressing has water as the first ingredient! Get around that by making your own. Heres a recipe and a salad to try it on .Also, if youre watching your carb consumption, the commercial dressings may sneak in more than you want. Again, avoid that by making your own. You can make a vinaigrette in a jar with a lid. Add the ingredients then shake to create an emulsion. Or do it in a bowl with a whisk. My wife found us a cruet at the supermarket that I was hoping would allow mixing, storing, and pouring all from the same attractive container. Unfortunately, it leaks when I shake it.

5 Surprising Foods That Help Fight Diabetes

5 Surprising Foods That Help Fight Diabetes

Are you bored with sugar-free candy, low carbohydrate pasta, and endless chicken dinners? Having diabetes does not mean that your diet should be boring. In fact, it should be the opposite. Variety keeps your palate interested and ensures that you get a healthy balance of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. The following 5 foods may or may not be a regular part of your diet, but each has a positive effect on diabetes management and prevention. Experiment with some of the “try this” options below for an easy way to incorporate these foods into your meals. Sunflower Seeds Sunflower seeds are a humble snack. They often sit on the shelf overlooked because of the hoards of positive press that almonds and walnuts get. Almonds and walnuts are very healthful nuts, but sunflower seeds are also full of important vitamins and minerals. Some of the nutrients in sunflower seeds that make them unique are copper, vitamin E, selenium, magnesium, and zinc. The presence and combination of so many of these nutrients can be hard to come by in common foods. Sunflower seeds have about 3 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein in an ounce of kernels. The best part is that sunflower seeds, while high in total fat (about 14 grams), contain mostly polyunsaturated fat, which researchers believe is the best type of fat to combat diabetes. Try this: Swap out your peanuts for sunflower seeds. Or hunt down a jar of sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter for an easy way to get your fix. Salmon Salmon boasts numerous health benefits. It’s a great source of protein that is low in saturated fat and has important omega-3 fatty acid for excellent heart health. The combination of omega-3 and polyunsaturated fats in salmon keeps blood pressure down and protects the heart from disease. Research Continue reading >>
