Low-Carb Snack Ideas for People with DiabetesDiabetic living logo

If you need a pick-me-up between meals, a snack with 15-20 grams of carbohydrate is often the answer. For someone with diabetes, it’s important to eat a fiber-filled and nutrient-rich snack to curb the appetite before the next meal, says Angela Ginn-Meadow, a registered dietitian and a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Talk to your health care provider about whether a snack will work in your meal plan.

 

Grapes and Grahams

Want a crunchy, sweet treat that’s quick and easy to whip together? Spread 1 tablespoon light cream cheese on 2 graham crackersquares and top with 1/4 cup halved grapes…..

 

 

Fruit and Nut Yogurt

Need a snack that will help you go the extra mile? Sprinkle 1 tablespoon dried cranberries and 1 tablespoon toasted slivered almonds atop a 6-ounce carton of plain fat-free Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt has more protein than its regular counterpart to keep you satisfied longer, and the sweet cranberries will balance the tangy zip of the yogurt…..

 

 

Cereal Nut Mix

Get a good dose of fiber by mixing 1/2 cup unsweetened miniature shredded wheat cereal, 1 tablespoon dried cranberries, and 1 tablespoon roasted pistachio nuts. By using unsalted nuts, you’ll keep the sodium to a record low of 2 milligrams…..

I have a Bread to pass along for this week’s Diabetic Dish of the Week – Seven-Grain Bread.

 

Seven-Grain Bread

Ingredients

3/4-1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup seven-grain cereal
1 package active dry yeast
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg or 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds
Directions

1 -In a large mixing bowl stir together 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour, the cereal, and yeast; set aside.
2 -In a medium saucepan combine the water, applesauce, honey, and salt; heat and stir just until warm (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F). Add applesauce mixture and egg to flour mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping side of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the whole wheat flour, sunflower seeds, and as much of the remaining all-purpose flour as you can.
3 – Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining all-purpose flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface of dough. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (1 to 1 1/2 hours).
4 – Punch down dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Lightly grease an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan.
5 – Shape dough into loaf. Place in prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (30 to 45 minutes).
6 – Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when lightly tapped. (If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover loosely with foil for the last 10 minutes of baking.) Immediately remove bread from pan. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf (16 servings).
