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).

Top 25 Power Foods for Diabetes

Having Diabetes 2 myself, I love these articles to help me keep everything in check! From the Diabetic Living On Line website, Top 25 Power Foods for Diabetes. http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
The Best Foods for DiabetesDiabetic living logo

If you already follow a healthful meal plan filled with whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, and lean protein, congratulations! You’re on your way to a long, healthy life and are taking a major step in controlling your weight and blood sugar levels. Plus, you’re probably already eating a bunch of the foods on this list.

 

For those who are taking the baby-steps approach to eating better, this list is even more helpful. Not only are these power foods high in fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals, they’re also familiar and easy to find. That means you don’t have to hunt down any exotic ingredients or shop at specialty grocery stores to find foods that will help you get on track with a healthful meal plan.

 

Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away — specifically the cardiologist. A 2012 study at Ohio State University published in the Journal of Functional Foods found that eating just one apple a day for four weeks lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol by 40 percent. The professor leading the study explained that not all antioxidants are created equal, and that a particular type of antioxidant in apples had a profound effect on lowering LDLs, a contributor to heart disease. The study was funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Apple Association, among other supporters……..

 
Asparagus

Based on taste alone, asparagus is a favorite food for many. But you’ll really love that it’s a nonstarchy vegetable with only 5 grams of carb, 20 calories, and almost 2 grams of dietary fiber per serving. It’s especially high in an antioxidant called glutathione, which plays a key role in easing the effects of aging and many diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer…..

22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

Here’s some help to alert you on 22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes. It’s from the Diabetic Living On Line website, which is stocked full of Diabetic Friendly Recipes. http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/diabetic-recipes

 

 

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 FoodsDiabetic living logo

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.

 

 

Nachos

You walk into a restaurant and you’re feeling starved. A quick scan of the menu and there they are: nachos, one of your favorites. You order them as an appetizer and also order a meal. Unfortunately, most restaurant nacho orders equate to and often exceed an entire meal’s worth of calories, carbs, and fat. For example, a regular order of Chili’s Classic Nachos has 830 calories, 59 grams of fat, and 39 grams of carb…..
Coffee Drinks

A simple cup of joe with a little milk or even half-and-half can be a low-calorie beverage perfect for a person with diabetes. But many coffee-shop drinks rival decadent desserts for their high calorie, carb, and fat contents. For example, a 16-ounce Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha (with whipped cream and 2 percent milk) comes in at 470 calories and 63 grams of carb. Similarly, a medium Dunkaccino contains 350 calories, while the large size has almost 500 calories…..
