A very informative article on 22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes. It’s from the Diabetic Living On Line website. The link is at the bottom of the page to get all the info.
22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes
These top food offenders contain high amounts of fat, sodium, carbs, and calories that may increase your risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, uncontrolled blood sugar, and weight gain. The good news is you can indulge in your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with our satisfying and delicious alternatives.
Think Twice Before Eating These Foods
At Diabetic Living, we believe that eating with diabetes doesn’t have to mean deprivation, starvation, or bland and boring foods. However, some foods really are best left on the table or in the store. Everyone — with diabetes or without — would be wise to avoid or limit the foods on this list because they are high in saturated fat, sodium, calories, or carbs, or might contain trans fats. High amounts of sodium and saturated fat can lead to heart disease, while excess sugars, high carb counts, and added calories can cause unwanted weight gain and blood sugar spikes.
If you see some of your favorite foods on this list, don’t despair: We’ve picked healthier options for you to choose from that taste great. So you can have your fries and eat them, too — provided they’re baked rather than deep-fat fried.

Today’s Menu: Baked Bone-In Whole Chicken Breast w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary, Cut Green Beans, and Baked French Bread Loaf
Early rain and then sunny and a bit cooler than it’s been the last couple of days, but still nice. They say we have some heavy rain and thunderstorms moving in late tonight and for the next couple of days. Dad is home from rehab, still not quite at full strength but getting there. They told him he’s got to lower his Salt intake and eat a little healthier, which I’ve been telling my Mom and Dad that for quite some time. For dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Bone-In Whole Chicken Breast w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary, Cut Green Beans, and Baked French Bread Loaf.
For the Chicken I used the PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast. As it says “Oven Ready’, already seasoned, and little clean-up needed plus their always delicious. To prepare it just preheat the oven to 400ºF. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster Bone-In Breast, sealed in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan, seasoned side up. Cut one small 1″ slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. If cooking from Fresh: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 80-90 minutes, until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF. Comes out piping hot, well seasoned, and delicious! Plenty leftovers for some Chicken Fajaita for lunch tomorrow.
One side I prepared was Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary. Love potatoes and love this recipe also! A real simple one to prepare. You’ll need 6 to 8 small red potatoes, quartered into 1/2-inch pieces, 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Then combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat potatoes. Transfer potatoes to a large baking sheet or shallow roasting pan. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, until tender and golden. Then for another side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of, Mom’s Favorite, Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.
PERDUE® OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast (3 lbs.)
Deliciously seasoned and juicy, whole bone-in chicken breast. Oven ready for convenience. Cooks perfectly in the bag for easy clean up.
*Ingredients: Chicken, water, salt, potassium and sodium phosphates, brown sugar, dextrose, carrageenan, yeast extract, maltodextrin, natural flavor.
*Seasoning Ingredients: Dextrose, modified food starch, onion, maltodextrin, natural flavor, garlic, cottonseed oil, dried carrot, xanthan gum, dried parsley, calcium chloride, potassium chloride, carrageenan.
Keep refrigerated or frozen. Thaw in refrigerator or microwave. Cook thoroughly.
**If breast temperature is below 180ºF, return to oven and continue cooking, checking the temperature every 10 minutes until the temperature reaches 180ºF.
COOKING AND PREP
• Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut open outer bag and remove Oven Ready Roaster Bone-In Breast, sealed in a cooking bag. Place in a shallow roasting pan, seasoned side up.
• Cut one small 1″ slit in cooking bag over the breast to vent during cooking. Note: Cooking bag will expand during cooking; allow enough room for the bag to expand without touching oven rack or walls.
• Cook from Fresh: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 80-90 minutes, until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF.**
• Cook from Frozen: Place pan with breast (still in cooking bag) on lower shelf of oven and roast for approximately 80-90 minutes until internal temperature of the breast reaches 180ºF.**
• Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut open cooking bag (use care to avoid hot steam and juices) and transfer breast to serving plate or cutting board. Remaining juices in bag can be used for a delicious seasoned gravy.
