Diabetic Recipes: 4 Ways to Celebrate National Mustard Day in Style

Before long, National Mustard Day will be upon us. This year, it’s scheduled to fall on the 2nd. So we thought it was high time to share a few diabetic recipes that involve the tasty condiment. Here’s a look at four simple meal ideas that may help you and yours join in on the August celebration:

1.) Burgers with Curry Mustard

Whether you love veggie burgers, hamburgers or turkey burgers it doesn’t matter. We’ve got a super simple curry mustard recipe that is sure to please. Just take 2 teaspoons of curry powder and add it to ½ cup of your favorite mustard. Stir the two ingredients together well and then slather it onto your burger before taking a big, juicy bite.

2.) Veggies with Tangy Sauce

veggies-150x150

If you are in the mood for something a lot lighter, whip up a crudités tray and our Asian inspired mustard sauce. To make the sauce, combine ½ cup of mustard with 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt and 2 tablespoons of organic soy sauce. Many brands of organic soy sauce, like Kikkoman, don’t contain added sugar. So you may want to look at the labels before settling on a soy sauce that’s right for your diabetic diet plan.

3.) Grilled Proteins with Apple Mustard Sauce

Not a fan of soy and yogurt? Don’t worry. We’ve got another diabetic recipe that may suit your needs. This one is made with 1 cup of unsweetened apple juice, 4 tablespoons of mustard and the seasonings of your choice. The mixture is thin enough to be used as a sauce or a marinade. And it works well with poultry, fish, vegetables and pork.

4.) Grilled Proteins with Lemony Garlic Mustard Sauce

While we are on the topic of grilled proteins, you could opt to go with a lemony garlic mustard sauce or marinade instead. It’s traditionally made with ½ cup of lemon juice (fresh), ½ cup of mustard, 2 tablespoons of EVO and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic.

Diabetic Recipes: 8 Pancake Toppings

When you are watching your insulin levels, some typical breakfast foods are off limits.  Eggs and bacon can become tiresome, but sugar-free syrup leaves you wishing for something better for your pancakes and waffles.

Here are 8 yummy pancake toppings for diabetics:

1.  Fresh berries:  Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries are all great choices.  With their low glycemic impact, they are perfect year-round, either fresh and sliced or frozen and crushed into a sauce.

2.  Nuts:  Chopped walnuts, pecans, and almonds are delicious sprinkled over pancakes.  They add texture that contrasts nicely with the soft pancakes.  You can also use nut butters like natural peanut butter or almond or cashew butters.  Nuts add protein and micronutrients along with a boost in flavor.

3. Homemade sugar-free chocolate chunks:  Sprinkle these on top of pancakes for a sweet treat!  One batch has 18.3 net carbs.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 16 packets stevia/erythritol blend (2/3 cup SEq) (TruVia or ZSweet)
  • 1/2 tsp liquid stevia (1/2 cup SEq)
  • 1 cup cocoa powder

Directions

  1. Melt butter over medium-low heat in a small sauce pan.
  2. As the butter is melting, add the powdered stevia/erythritol blend.
  3. As soon as the butter is completely melted, add the liquid stevia. Whisk with a fork.
  4. Remove pan from the heat.  Add the cocoa powder and whisk well.
  5. To make the chunks line a 8 inch pan with parchment paper.   Spread out the mixture on the parchment paper. Let the chocolate semi-harden at room temperature. Then “cut” into small chunks with a table knife while the chocolate mixture is still soft. Leave chunks in pan, cover, and place in freezer to finish hardening.

4.  Sugar-free jams: Apricot preserves or Raspberry jam are an easy spread for pancakes.

5.  Yogurt:  Greek yogurt with Splenda or no-sugar-added jams mixed in is a cool topping for pancakes.  Mixing cinnamon into the yogurt is another refreshing option.

6.  Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce: 

Ingredients

  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 2/3 Cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Over medium-high heat, mix coconut milk and coconut sugar in a small sauce pan.
  2. Stir with a whisk while you bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 25-35 minutes, depending on how thick you want the sauce.
  4. Cool and refrigerate until you are ready to use.  The sauce will thicken as it cools. Reheat before using.

You can make this sauce ahead of time and keep on hand to top pancakes or even sugar-free ice cream. One serving (1 tablespoon) has just 8.6 grams of sugar.

7.  Flavored Butters:  Try Strawberry Butter.  Just mash 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries.  Cook with 2 tablespoons Splenda or TruVia over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the liquid evaporates.  Once the strawberries are cool, mix with 8 tablespoons of softened butter.  You can roll the flavored butter in wax paper and freeze to use later.

8.  Savory toppings:  Change up your breakfast by adding more unusual toppings like blue cheese, salsa, goat cheese, or chopped bacon bits.

With a variety of toppings on hand, your gourmet pancakes will be a delight.  For more diabetic recipes and for all your diabetic health supplies, contact us.  We are committed to helping you control your diabetes instead of letting it control you.

5 Diabetic Foods to Enjoy Around the Campfire with the Family

With the summer camping season staring us all in the face, there’s a good chance that diabetics everywhere will be gathering around campfires with their families. So in recognition of that, we wanted to highlight 5 diabetic foods to consider enjoying next to the fire:

1.) Diabetic S’mores

Why not treat yourself and other diabetic campers with some s’mores? Surprisingly, there are many companies that manufacture sugar-free marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate that would be appropriate for such occasions. Among them are LaNouba, Hershey’s, Amber Lyn Chocolates and Fifty50. Simply make them just like you would regular s’mores and enjoy.

2.) Sun Butter & Jam Mountain Pies

Sun butter mountain pies are another campfire treat to consider. They are made with pie irons, sugar-free jam, whole wheat bread, cooking spray and natural, no sugar added sunflower butter. Just spray the inside of the iron with the cooking spray. Then make sunflower butter and jam sandwiches with the whole wheat bread. Afterward, press the sandwiches into the pie iron and place it over top of the campfire’s flames until the sandwiches are toasted to perfection.

3.) Black Bean Salad and Tuna Packets

If you want something more substantial than a sugar-free treat or mountain pie, make black bean salad and tuna packets instead. To make the dish, create a foil packet out of tin foil. Next, fill it with single-serve pouch tuna and black bean salad. Then place the filled packets onto the campfire and let them stay there until they are warm. Once they are heated all the way through, remove the packets from the fire and eat up!

4.) Dutch Oven Turkey Chili

Dutch oven turkey chili would also make a great campfire meal for diabetics. It’s typically made with ground turkey breast, fresh vegetables, beans, diced tomatoes (no salt added) and seasonings. Be sure to brown the ground turkey and onions first. When you’re done, add the rest of the ingredients to the Dutch oven and let it simmer over the campfire until you are happy with its flavor.

5.) Turkey Sausage, Onions and Peppers

Lastly, you might want to cook turkey sausages over your campfire too. They’d taste fabulous on whole wheat rolls, topped with campfire roasted onions and peppers. You could even add a bit of no-salt tomato sauce to the sandwiches as well.

Diabetic Smoothie Recipes: The New Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast is one of the best times of the day to load up on fruit. Since fruit is the most easily digested of all the foods we eat, it doesn’t overtax the digestive system like many traditional breakfast foods that are high in protein and fat. For people with diabetes, though, it is important to consume some protein at each meal in order to slow down carbohydrate utilization and prevent spikes in blood sugar. Since many traditional breakfast foods – even many of the ones recommended for controlling diabetes – are high in calories and can damage your health in other ways, it’s good to lighten things up every once in a while with fresh or frozen fruit combinations that won’t spike your blood sugar.

Healthy-Fruit-Smoothie-Recipes-300x199

To help you get started, we’ve provided two diabetic smoothie recipes  which use nut butters and milk (dairy or soy) for added protein to keep your blood sugar in check all morning. Try these out and see what other tasty and satisfying smoothie combinations you can come up with!

Tropical fruit blast

  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • ½ cup kiwi, peeled and cut into chunks
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen mango, peeled and cut
  • into chunks
  • 1 whole banana, peeled
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup dairy or soy milk

Add the first five ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until a smooth paste forms. (With frozen mango, this may take a bit longer.) Slowly stream in milk from the top of the blender or food processor until all milk has been added.

Triple berry delight

  • 2 tbsp almond butter (or substitute peanut butter for a “PB&J” treat!)
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen strawberries (if using frozen, cut into quarters)
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 whole banana, peeled
  • 1 packet stevia (or 2-3 pitted dates)
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup dairy or soy milk

Add the first seven ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until a smooth paste forms. (With frozen fruit, this may take a bit longer than if some or all the fruit is fresh.) Slowly stream in milk from the top of the blender or food processor until all milk has been added.

Diabetic Foods: Buffalo Meat

If you are changing your diet such that you want to incorporate healthier foods, especially with respect to reducing nutritional risk factors for Type II diabetes, consider buffalo meat.

While many Americans consume meat raised from cattle, there has been a small, but growing movement to consume meat raised from buffalo.  Buffalo meat, especially that from grass-fed buffalo, is an excellent substitute for cattle meat.  Much of the cattle meat on the market is grain-fed instead of grass-fed, which reduces cattle meat’s nutritional value.

buffalo-meat-300x300

Buffalo meat typically has less fat and calories, yet about the same amount of protein as cattle meat.  Also, buffalo meat has a relatively lower Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acid ratio.  All of this helps to reduce nutritional risk factors for diabetes, and even obesity that contributes to the risk of diabetes.

As far as cooking buffalo meat, cuts of it are similar to cattle meat, though it has a darker red color (on account of buffalo meat not having streaks of fat in it like cattle meat does).  Buffalo meat will tend to cook faster than cattle meat because of its lower fat content, given fat acts as an insulator in slowing the cooking process.  Since buffalo meat does not really have fat to enhance its taste, you can of course add flavor to it by using spices.  Buffalo meat should be cooked slowly at a low temperature (around 275 degrees F).  This will help keep the meat from becoming tough, and help maintain its taste.

Diabetic Breakfast: Provencal Omelet

The Provencal omelet is an easy-to-make, diabetic friendly, low fat and low calorie preparation that also provides protein and roughage that help in the control of glucose levels in the blood. You can have the Provence omelet at breakfast or lunch and can use it to substitute some of your lean meat and vegetable intake.

Ingredients

Chop up a medium sized tomato, snip some fresh parsley if you like it, slice up 2 cups of fresh mushrooms, take 3 table spoons of green onion—sliced, and mince 1 clove of garlic.

Take a quarter teaspoon of the Herbes de Provence mix or substitute with dried and crushed thyme or basil. An eighth of a teaspoon of salt is sufficient. Add an equal amount of dash ground black pepper.

Fat in moderation is essential to any diet. Take a quarter cup of Mozzarella cheese and a teaspoon of Parmesan or Asiago cheese, shredded finely. Use a teaspoon of olive oil.

You can’t make omelet without eggs. Take 4 eggs or a cup of egg product—thaw them out if frozen. Altogether you can make two omelets with these ingredients.

Preparation

To keep the fat low in this meal, use a light coating of non-stick cooking spray on a skillet rather than using cooking oil. Once the skillet is heated on a medium flame for a few minutes, put the mushrooms, onions, and garlic into the skillet, and while stirring often, cook until they become tender. Once done, remove them from the skillet and drain the cooking fluid and wipe the skillet clean if needed.

Next, take the eggs or egg product and the herbs and spices in a sufficiently sized bowl and beat them with a rotary beater until a good mixture is achieved. Heat the skillet again over a medium flame, this time with half a teaspoon of olive oil in it. Add the egg batter into the skillet and cook without stirring until the batter starts to set. Lift up the setting batter around the edges with a spatula every so often and cook until the mix becomes moist and glossy.

At this point, sprinkle half of the Mozzarella cheese, the mushroom, and vegetable mix onto the setting batter and cook until the cheese starts to melt. Then fold one side of the cooked batter onto the other, take it out of the skillet and onto a plate, and sprinkle it with half of the shredded Parmesan or Asiago cheese, chopped tomato, and parsley. Serve hot. Make another omelet in the same way. This diabetic friendly meal is perfect for staying healthy and living an active lifestyle.

Exercising Is Good For Diabetes Says Study

People suffering from type 2 diabetes exhibited significant decrease in hepatic triglyceride content, as well as visceral abdominal and pericardial fat by following an exercise program. This could indicate a decrease in cardiovascular risk for such patients, as per a study conducted by a team at the Leiden University Medical Center, located in the Netherlands.

download

6 month training period

The study was conducted using 12 patients who were made to undergo a 6 month training period that included exercise of moderate intensity as well as a trekking expedition of extended exercise of moderate intensity. During the trekking expedition the exercise duration was greater than in the training period, whereas the dietary input remained the same.

On day 0, the average energy expenditure was 2965 kCal/day 6 ± 111. This was gradually increased on day 192 to 3439 kCal/day 6 ±152. At the beginning of the study, the patients’ mean hepatic TG content was 6.8 % ± 2.3 %.

Results

The study result showed that exercise leads to changes in fat distribution in diabetic patients. The study authors have predicted that exercise would equally affect both visceral fat compartments of abdomen and fat compartments of epicardium. The study however showed that the exercise program led to a decrease in visceral abdominal fat and pericardial fat, but none in epicardial fat volume. This suggests that fat in epicardium responds differently to exercise.

The hepatic TG content also decreased to 4.6 % ±1.6 %. Study authors conjecture that liver is able to adapt to changing levels of activity by modifying biochemical pathways used in fat metabolism.

This study creates a new hope for diabetes patients to be able to regulate their condition through exercise.
