Healthy Diabetic Meals Although the management approach and medications for diabetes vary depending on the type of diabetes, age, health status, and lifestyle factors–diet is always a key factor. 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. First up is our Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa. View Recipe: Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Depending on the season, you may want to consider substituting thin, blanched, fresh asparagus for the sugar snap peas. 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 Gourmet Diabetic Pizza

Low Carb Gourmet Diabetic Pizza

You can ditch the regular pizza crust that is super high in carbs – around 36 g total carbs and 33.5 g net carbs per slice for a 14″ pizza crust – and swap it for our awesome low carb diabetic pizza crust that has just 6 g net carbs for 1/2 large pizza!

Diabetic Main Courses For Summer

Diabetic Main Courses For Summer

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 sprightly marriage of lemon and dill is a match made in heaven, and three certainly isn't a crowd when sweet pink shrimp are added to the mix. 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.

Turkey Taco Soup: A Healthy Freezer Meal

Turkey Taco Soup: A Healthy Freezer Meal

So much deliciousness in a bowl of this turkey taco soup. And so much nutrition too! Some of the information in this post came from a conference in which both Bush Brothers and Company and The National Turkey Federation sponsored sessions. I was not asked to write this post. And as usual, these are my opinions based on scientific information and my many years of experience working with patients and cooking up a storm in my own kitchen. Theres no denying the benefits of a plant-rich diet, but so many of my patients are hesitant to eat beans and lentils because of theircarbohydrate content. I want even my patients with diabetes and prediabetes toeat plenty of beans. Beans have resistant starch , which has blood sugar benefits. See my previous post that includes a list of foods rich in resistant starch . Plus they have so much more like vitamins, protein, minerals, viscous fibers and a host ofhealth-boosting phytonutrients. Something that I found very interesting at my recent conference was research presentedby John L. Sievenpiper , MD, PhD, FRCPC of the University of Toronto. He showed that consuming beans and lentils (as part of a wholesome diet) improves blood sugar, cholesterol levels, blood pressure and even body weight. Most interesting to me was this statistic: As part of a healthful diet reduced in glycemic index, beans and lentils can lower blood sugar (as measured by A1C, an estimate of 3-month blood sugar control) as well as some diabetes medications. This is not a reason to stop your medications, but its a terrific reason to eat more beans, peas and lentils. You dont need to give up meat to benefit from a plant-rich diet. And this simple recipe is a great excuse to combine the two.In general, turkey is a wonderful meat to highlight strong flavors, and lean gro Continue reading >>
