[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Cinnamon Roll Ups

 

Cinnamon Roll Ups

Dough:

1/2 cup butter, softened (I used unsalted)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar (erythritol)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour (3/4 cup Bob Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry
and 1/2 cup Carbalose Flour)

Filling:

1/2 cup packed brown sugar (whey low gold)
1/4 cup butter, softened (I used unsalted but you can use salted)
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Topping:

2 Tbsp sugar (erythritol)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Beat all dough ingredients, except flour, in large bowl at medium speed
1 minute or until blended and smooth. At low speed, slowly beat in
flour. Divide dough in half; shape into flat squares and cover and
refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

Meanwhile, beat filling ingredients in small bowl at low speed until
combined; cover and let stand at room temperature. Combine topping
ingredients in small bowl.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On lightly floured surface roll one dough
half to 11 x 9 inch rectangle (about 1/8 inch thick). Spread with half
of the filling; cut into 16 pieces. Roll up each piece, starting with
the short side. Roll in topping to coat; place on parchment paper-lined
baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned and set (some of the filling
may spread during baking). Cool completely on wire rack.

Makes: 32

[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Tandoori Chicken Skewers with Mint Raita

 

Tandoori Chicken Skewers with Mint Raita

1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt, divided
1/3 cup reduced fat coconut milk, divided
2 tsp. curry powder, mild or hot
1-2 finely chopped garlic cloves
3/4 tsp. sea salt, divided
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breast
2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
12 (8-inch) bamboo skewers

In wide, shallow bowl or deep plate, combine 2 tablespoons of yogurt
with 2 tablespoons of coconut milk, curry powder, garlic and 1/2
teaspoon salt. Mix in oil.

Cut chicken lengthwise into 12 strips. Insert skewer into bottom of one
chicken strip and work it up lengthwise to top. Repeat with remaining
chicken.

Place skewers in curry marinade and using your fingers, make sure it
coats them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 8 hours.

Arrange marinated chicken on paper toweling and blot dry, removing all
excess marinade.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat, then coat with cooking spray.
Or heat stovetop griddle.

Arrange skewers in one layer in pan and cook for 2 minutes, browning
chicken. Using tongs, turn skewers and brown on another side, 2 minutes.
Turn chicken and cook until it is opaque and hot around skewer at
thickest part of chicken. Transfer skewers to serving plate.

While chicken cooks, prepare the Raita (follows).

In bowl, combine remaining yogurt and coconut milk with onions, mint,
lime juice and remaining salt.

When possible, make Raita 30 minutes before serving chicken to allow its
flavors to develop and meld. Serve it the day it is made.

Makes:4 servings for main course or a snack for 6 or 12 people

[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] File - Taking a Closer Look at the Label

 


Taking a Closer Look at the Label

The information on the left side of the label provides total
amounts of different nutrients per serving. To make wise food
choices, check the total amounts for:

* calories
* total fat
* saturated fat
* cholesterol
* sodium
* total carbohydrate
* fiber

Using the information found in total amounts

Total amounts are shown in grams, abbreviated as g, or in milligrams,
shown as mg. A gram is a very small amount and a milligram is
one-thousandth of that. For example, a nickel weighs about 5 grams.
So does a teaspoonful of margarine. Compare labels of similar foods.
For example, choose the product with a smaller amount of saturated
fat, cholesterol, and sodium and try to select foods with more fiber.
Calories

If you are trying to lose or maintain your weight, the number of
calories you eat counts. To lose weight you need to eat fewer
calories than your body burns. You can use the labels to compare
similar products and determine which contains fewer calories. To
find out how many calories you need each day, talk with your
dietitian or certified diabetes educator.

Total Fat

Total fat tells you how much fat is in a food per serving. It
includes fats that are good for you such as mono and polyunsaturated
fats, and fats that are not so good such as saturated and trans
fats. Mono and polyunsaturated fats can help to lower your blood
cholesterol and protect your heart. Saturated and trans fat can
raise your blood cholesterol and increase your risk of heart
disease. The cholesterol in food may also increase your blood
cholesterol. Learn more about specific types of fat.

Fat is calorie-dense. Per gram, it has more than twice the calories
of carbohydrate or protein. Although some types of fats, such as
mono and polyunsaturated fats, are healthy, it is still important
to pay attention to the overall number of calories that you consume
to maintain a healthy weight. If you are trying to lose weight,
you'll still want to limit the amount of fat you eat. That's
where the food label comes in handy.

Sodium

Sodium does not affect blood glucose levels. However, many people
eat much more sodium than they need. Table salt is very high in
sodium. You might hear people use "sodium" in lieu of "table salt,"
or vice versa.

With many foods, you can taste how salty they are, such as pickles
or bacon. But there is also hidden salt in many foods, like cheeses,
salad dressings, canned soups and other packaged foods. Reading
labels can help you compare the sodium in different foods. You can
also try using herbs and spices in your cooking instead of adding
salt. Adults should aim for less than 2400 mg per day. If you
have high blood pressure, it may be helpful to eat less.

Total Carbohydrate
If you are carbohydrate counting, the food label can provide you
with the information you need for meal planning. Look at the grams
of total carbohydrate, rather than the grams of sugar. Total
carbohydrate on the label includes sugar, complex carbohydrate,
and fiber. If you look only at the sugar number, you may end up
excluding nutritious foods such as fruits and milks thinking they
are too high in sugar. You might also overeat foods such as
cereals and grains that have no natural or added sugar, but do
contain a lot of carbohydrate.

The grams of sugar and fiber are counted as part of the grams of
total carbohydrate. If a food has 5 grams or more fiber in a
serving, subtract the fiber grams from the total grams of
carbohydrate for a more accurate estimate of the carbohydrate
content.

Fiber
Fiber is part of plant foods that is not digested. Dried beans
such as kidney or pinto beans, fruits, vegetables and grains are
all good sources of fiber. The recommendation is to eat 25-30 grams
of fiber per day. People with diabetes need the same amount of
fiber as everyone else.

Sugar alcohols
Sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) include sorbitol, xylitol
and mannitol, and have fewer calories than sugars and starches.
Use of sugar alcohols in a product does not necessarily mean the
product is low in carbohydrate or calories. And, just because a
package says "sugar-free" on the outside, that does not mean that
it is calorie or carbohydrate-free. Always remember to check the
label for the grams of carbohydrate and calories.

List of Ingredients
Ingredients are listed in descending order by weight, meaning the
first ingredient makes up the largest proportion of the food. Check
the ingredient list to spot things you'd like to avoid, such as
coconut oil or palm oil, which are high in saturated fat. Also try
to avoid hydrogenated oils that are high in trans fat. They are not
listed by total amount on the label, but you can choose foods that
don't list hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil in the
ingredient list.

The ingredient list is also a good place to look for heart-healthy
ingredients such as soy; monounsaturated fats such as olive, canola
or peanut oils; or whole grains, like whole wheat flour and oats.

[Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] File - 5 Healthy Grilling Tips

 


5 Healthy Grilling Tips

From: Dr Weil

It's delightful to grill outdoors when the weather is warm. Unfortunately, grilling meats can lead to the production of carcinogenic (potentially cancer-causing) chemicals called heterocyclic amines (HAs) as well as unhealthy PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). The good news is it is simple to reduce HAs, making your BBQ healthier yet still as tasty for you, your family and your guests.

1. Limit the quantity of meat you grill, and make grilled vegetables or wild Alaskan salmon the main course.

2. Pre-cook your foods in the oven or on the stovetop and finish them off outdoors - less grill time means fewer carcinogens.

3. If you do grill meat, cook it thoroughly but avoid charring or blackening it (don't eat any blackened parts).
Marinate your meats. Marinade may help reduce HA formation, especially if it's made with spices such as ginger, rosemary and turmeric.

4. Avoid charcoal lighter fluid or self-starting packages of briquettes in a charcoal grill - they will leave residues of toxic chemicals in your food.

5. A healthy alternative is an inexpensive chimney lighter that uses a small amount of newspaper to ignite a mass of charcoal in a large metal cylinder. Gas grills are good alternatives to those that use charcoal.

Re: [Healthy_Recipes_For_Diabetic_Friends] Why Im Not Online

 

Hi Gloria,

      Sorry to hear about your problem, I've had type 2 Diabetes for about 12 years and have pain in my legs that has gotten worse over those years. My wife suggested that I get Diabetic shoes to see if that would help. To be totally honest I really can't see how that they could do any good. Because of changes in the office operation of my primary care physician I could no longer go in very early and have my blood drawn for A1C return later to see my doctor at the time of my appointment, after getting something to eat. Well I just won't come here anymore. I left and went to the VA clinic a couple of blocks away. While there I decided I would be better off  going to the VA Medical Center in Biloxi. That was the best thing to do. I have been well taken care of there. Among other things I saw a Podiatrist and got Diabetic shoes and socks. I don't understand how they work, but the sure do. Maybe they'll work for you.                                                        Cheers Dan
