The good news is that there are foods you can add to your diet that will help control diabetes. Our collection of healthy diabetic main dishes offer low-carb, low-fat, low-sugar, and low-sodium options that are flavorful and satisfying down to the last bite.

You can’t go wrong with either application. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is essential to the flavor of this salad. The bottled juice just doesn’t compare. Microwave lemons for about 30 seconds before squeezing them; they’ll yield more juice. View Recipe: Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Skillet Pork and Warm Pineapple Salsa Pineapple is a sweet foil for the fiery jalapeño. Either fresh or canned pineapple chunks work well in this recipe. If you like a spicier kick, remember that smaller jalapeño peppers are typically hotter than the larger ones. To complete the meal, serve with rice and steamed snow peas.

Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Bowl

Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Bowl

Low Carb Chicken Philly Cheesesteak is the perfect recipe for a delicious, health and quick-fix meal. In less than 30 minutes, you can enjoy a diabetes-friendly meal the whole family will love. CLICK BELOW FOR THE LOW CARB CHEESESTEAK VIDEO: I’m back with more philly cheesesteak!!! Now do you believe me when I say “I’ll never give up my quest for the ultimate low carb philly cheesesteak recipe”? First there was Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Cups, next there was Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Mushrooms and then Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Bowl! Now my fellow cheesesteak lovers, I give you my low carb chicken-based version. ♥ This recipe is perfect if you are cooking for either low carb eaters or people with diabetes and also for those who have no diet restrictions. Just add in a hoagie roll or hamburger bun and dinner is done. It all begins with thinly sliced chicken breasts. I sliced my chicken partially frozen which helps tremendously with getting the super thin slices I wanted. If your chicken is fresh or thawed, simply place it back in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to get it to a semi-frozen state. (You can slice the chicken breasts without freezing them, it just makes things a little easier) Next, I added my seasonings to the raw sliced chicken and made sure all pieces were coated. I let this sit a few minutes while I warmed up a little olive oil in my skillet. (You could complete this step up to a day ahead of time if you’d like. Just store the chicken in fridge until your ready.) When your olive oil is heated, add the chicken slices and spread them out. I used a large skillet here and it allowed enough room for 2 large chicken breasts. As the chicken browns, continue spreading the pieces out and turning them so each side is nicely browned. For this part, you Continue reading >>

Healthy Mexican Chicken Verde Quinoa Casserole Recipe

Healthy Mexican Chicken Verde Quinoa Casserole Recipe

This cheesy Mexican quinoa casserole is a crowd pleaser! With 10 grams of fiber and 34 grams of protein per serving, its a stick to your ribs kind of meal. Better yet, its made in only one dish to minimize cleanup. Besides the fact that this recipe is easy, delicious, and only requires a casserole dish, knife, and cutting board to prepare, one of my favorite things about this dish is just how easy it is to adapt to a variety of tastes and dietary needs. See all of the suggestions below. Optional: avocado, hot sauce, cilantro, and green onions for serving Spray a large casserole dish with oil. In the dish, mix together chicken, quinoa, black beans, yellow squash, mushrooms, chiles, salsa, spices, salt, and pepper. Pour broth over the top, which helps move the quinoa to the bottom to cook through. Top with frozen peppers and onions. Cover and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove lid and sprinkle cheese over the top. Place back in the oven and bake for another 30 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes so the liquids can finish absorbing, then serve with desired garnishes. Quinoa, the fiber-rich South American pseudo grain, makes the perfect base for this casserole. It bakes up perfectly tender in the oven with just a little bit of chicken broth. Most grocery stores sell quinoa, but if you cant find it or arent sure if youll like it swap in brown rice. If you use brown rice, top it with 2 cups of very hot chicken broth before baking and keep the casserole covered the whole time in the oven, as brown rice takes a bit longer to cook. When the rice is tender, sprinkle the casserole with cheese and place back in the oven another 5 minutes to melt. For a meatless version, swap the chicken for cubes of tofu , crumbled tempeh, or add more beans. Try a mix of pinto beans and black be Continue reading >>
