Chicken Veggie Stir Fry + The Pre-diabetes Diet Plan

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry + The Pre-diabetes Diet Plan

Eating for overall good health and diabetes prevention just got a whole lot easier with this family-pleasing recipe for Chicken Veggie Stir Fry. Over 80 million Americans of all ages have pre-diabetes, which puts them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes—a disease that can lead to blindness, kidney failure, and blood vessel damage. Obesity, inactivity, a low fiber diet, and a high intake of sugar-sweetened beverages are common risk factors for diabetes. To the rescue is registered dietitian, Hillary Wright, M.Ed, RD whose new book, The Pre-Diabetes Diet Plan outlines simple eating and exercise strategies aimed at reversing and preventing diabetes. As part of her pre-diabetes diet plan, Hillary recommends filling half your plate with non-starchy vegetables, 25% with a lean protein food, and the remaining 25% with a starchy veggie or whole grain. She’s not anti carb, but instead, she emphasizes the Two Qs: quality (whole grain) and quantity (not too much). I served our stir fry with whole grain brown rice and stuck to a 2/3 cup portion.

Healthy Sweet And Sour Chicken

Healthy Sweet And Sour Chicken

An easy and guilt-free recipe for classic sweet and sour chicken with tons of flavor. We had a family Christmas party on my inlaws side Saturday and then again on Sunday. Lots of cheesy dips and lot of sugar-overload deserts have been making their way into my holiday diet, and Ive greeted them with wide open arms. This is what the holidays are about! No wait. The holidays are about giving. And family. And then good food comes in maybe, third place. So allow me to re-phrase. This is part of what the holidays are about! As I was digging into my second helping of Oreo-peppermint-ice-cream-dessert (oh-ma-gosh. addiction alert!!) that my sister in law Kadee brought to the par-tay, we joked about our new years resolutions and how January-one will be diet central as we try to shed the holiday pounds. But Ive actually been trying to balance all of the holidaycookies and homemade caramels with some lighter dishes (ohhhh quinoa chicken nuggets I love you). Hence this healthy sweet and sour chicken. So what makes it healthy?? Well most restaurants deep-fry their chicken in a thick batter, which is, lets admit it, totally delicious. But! Its not needed. You can get tons of flavor without the heavy oil-laden breading. This chicken is lightly coated in corn starch which is probably my favorite trick for making-over takeout dishes. The corn starch is low-carb and a very thin coating delivers a crispy exterior on your chicken when sauted in a tablespoon or two of oil. We ate this for lunch just yesterday and we instantly fell in love. It actually makes it hard to ever order sweet and sour chicken from a restaurant again now that we have an easy and healthier version to whip up at home in 30 minutes. Continue reading >>

Chicken And Broccoli

Chicken And Broccoli

In my third pregnancy I developed gestational diabetes. My diagnosis came just prior to Easter, and I was crest-fallen that I would need to avoid Easter chocolates and the accompanying feasting. This, as well as having to learn all about the dos and don’ts of diabetes and overhauling my entire diet left me feeling depressed for a number of weeks. We were in the throws of renovating our house, and with 3 other children in my care I didn’t have time for this! I learnt that the biggest perpetrators of blood sugar spikes weren’t actually ‘sugary’ foods like lollies and chocolates, but carbohydrate-rich foods like hot chips, pizza or burgers. While this meant I could indulge in some Easter chocolates, it also meant that take-away dinners or convenience meals would have to go. This was another frustrating point for me because I was already time-poor and now I needed to spend extra time preparing food, and could never have the night off and serve fish and chips for dinner instead. However, after a couple of weeks of ‘torture’ I started feeling better than I had ever felt in my whole life. Despite the fact I was heavily pregnant, I felt energetic and had actually lost 11 pounds (5kgs). After losing this initial weight I didn’t gain any further weight for the remainder of my pregnancy. This left me feeling comparatively light and and grateful for my diet overhaul. Thankfully, I was declared free from diabetes after baby was born, but I have transferred many of the diabetes-diet practices to my regular eating habits. This Chicken Divan recipe is perfect for my post-pregnancy eating plan. With equal portions of protein and vegetables, it is low in carbs and won’t leave you feeling heavy after eating. It’s not exactly low-fat, but if you are diabetic or want to Continue reading >>

7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

Onions and leeks are from the same family, but they taste different. Leeks are sweeter and milder than onions. In this recipe, chicken is glazed in Dijon mustard and roasted with a fusion of leeks, onions, garlic, and shallots. According to a 2015 animal study , onions lower high blood sugar levels when given with the diabetes drug metformin. 3. Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks Think you cant bite into a fried chicken leg if you have diabetes? Think again! The chicken drumsticks in this recipe are coated in a savory Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb crust. Theyre oven-baked instead of fried. Chicken drumsticks are higher in fat than chicken breasts, so be sure to balance your meal with low-fat sides. Drumsticks are still a great source of protein and much cheaper to buy. This recipe brings to mind apple-picking in early fall, but its tasty any time of year. Tart green apples and thyme are the perfect complements for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Since the fiber in apples is a good carb that doesnt raise blood sugar levels, you can rest assured youre eating a healthy meal. A great roast chicken is a staple in many recipe arsenals. Its the perfect meal option for an elegant dinner party or a casual family dinner. For this recipe, apples, onions, garlic, and spices are stuffed into the cavity of a whole chicken. The chicken then gets an olive oil rub-down and is roasted to moist perfection. Make sure to peel off the skin before eating the meat. Use the leftovers to create a healthy chicken salad made with Greek yogurt and celery. 6. Marinated Grilled Chicken with Zucchini If youve got raw chicken in the fridge, a bumper crop of zucchini, and a grill, then youve got the makings of a healthy dinner. After being marinated in a blend of clementine orange juice, olive Continue reading >>

Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast

Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast

Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast Lemon garlic chicken is easy to incorporate with a variety of side dishes and is good any time of year. 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (six halves) Mix oregano and pepper and sprinkle evenly over chicken pieces. In a large non-stick skillet, using medium heat, brown chicken evenly on both sides in olive oil. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over chicken, bringing mixture to a gentle boil. Pour skillet contents into slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 6 hours (3 hours on high). Chicken is very tasty served on a bed of brown rice with steamed carrots! It's in my crock pot now only I doubled the reciepe since I cook for a family of 7 (well the twins don;t eat solids yet) But instead of using the boillion and water I used my homemade chicken broth that I add no salt to. Since I also need to watch the amount of cholesterol in my diet, I made this dish but removed the salt and the bouillin granules. great dish. Thank you for this recipe. However, I improvised the recipe since I live by myself: I double the quantities of the ingredients, except the chicken (I have a big crockpot). Instead of browning the chicken in a skillet, I put them all in the crockpot, cook in low for 3 hours, and then enjoy the aroma coming from the pot! I don't bother cutting down recipes = I go ahead and prepare them and then portion them out and put the extras in the freezer for my take to work lunches. It is a great way to watch what you eat and what you spend! Plus it takes just as much energy to cook 1 portion as 4 so you end up saving energy. Does anyone have receipes for a small slow cooker? I only cook for myself and it's hard to cut down receiipes to 1-2 servings. Continue reading >>

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

It's perfect if you have diabetes or try to avoid sugar. Want to enjoy the finger-licking goodness of BBQ chicken, but not a fan of all that sugar in your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce? This sweet and zesty condiment makes almost any food better, but it’s also pretty sweet, and not in a good way. Some popular brands have more than 15 grams of sugar per serving! That means you may unknowingly consume way more sugar than you intended—and during a savory dinner, not even for dessert! (Here are more sneaky condiments to watch out for.) If you’re treating insulin resistance or following a diabetic diet, the sugar in BBQ sauce is something you need to pay attention to, since it can cause an unexpected blood sugar spike you might not be prepared for. In this episode of Diabetes Bites, nutritionist Fiorella DiCarlo, RD, whips up a diabetes-friendly BBQ chicken that uses a low-carb, homemade BBQ sauce that imitates the traditional grilling favorite with way less sugar. But actually, you won’t even need a grill: Fiorella makes this in a slow cooker, so you can enjoy this recipe all year round. This low-sugar BBQ chicken recipe uses dark meat like drumsticks or thighs since these are juicier. Although the chicken breast is usually recommended because it’s lower in fat, dark meat has tons of protein along with iron and vitamin B12. For people managing diabetes, increasing protein intake is beneficial since it helps you stay full while you’re cutting back on carbs. (Here are more foods nutritionists recommend to treat diabetes.) That said, you can totally swap in chicken breast if that’s your jam. Then round out your plate with some seasonal grilled vegetables, and you’ve got a perfect diabetes-friendly dinner.

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Although my boys love to order Chicken Parmesan when we dine out, the health content is always a concern especially since it usually arrives thickly breaded, deeply fried, smothered in cheese, and served on a mountain of spaghetti! In an effort to satisfy their love of this dish I have come up with a terrific easy stove-top recipe thats filled with all of the same great flavors but none of the excess fat and carbs. To keep the total calories and carbs on your plate under control, serve each portion with two-thirds to one cup of cooked multigrain pasta and a mountain of yummy veggies. 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound) 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (3 ounces) 1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic salt. In another shallow bowl, beat the egg until frothy. 2. Wrap the chicken breasts in plastic wrap and place on a cutting board. Gently pound each breast with a mallet to an even thickness (about 1/2-inch). Dip each chicken breast into the beaten egg to coat, and then roll in the breadcrumb mixture. 3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is well browned and just cooked through. 4. Spoon the marinara sauce evenly on top of the chicken, and sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 more minutes, or until the cheese melts. The Chicken Parmesan dinner plate (or should I say platter), at Romanos Macaroni Grill has 2220 calories, 148 grams of fat (52 of them saturated), 90 grams of protein, 126 grams of carbohydrate and 4440 mg of sodium.Mama Mia!
