Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and topped them with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Then at 11:00 I had to go to my family Doctor. My last visit for my Blood Work showed a increased Sugar count. So they are changing my increasing my Medication. The last few months have really been stressful so that didn’t help my readings any. And now it looks as though I’m losing my Supplement Insurance because I’m an Amputee, which I was when I first got the policy back in 2002. Then Thursday I have to be back at the Dentist Office for Dental Work. Too much going on, the bad way in my life right now. But it’s like they say “It could be worse”. So I didn’t really plan on anything for dinner but one thing kept sounding good with no prep by me, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich! So with the Kitchen closed tonight it was Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips.

 


I just love Izzy’s Sandwiches! I would put Izzy’s Corned Beef up against any other. Plus with their “Lean’ version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier also. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich. I had the Full, as usual, along with a serving of Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips and their 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving, I had a 1/2 serving. For Dessert/Snack later some Honey Crisp Apple slices.

IZZY'S Light Cornbeef Sandwich 001
For Breakfast this morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Spent the day taking care of Mom and Dad. Both were sick today, very upset stomachs and not feeling too good. Also did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. I made my parents Soup and a Grilled Cheese Sandwich for their Dinner. As for my Dinner, I shut the Kitchen Down! Tonight its a Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Chips.

 

 

I would put this Izzy’s Corned Beef up against any other, so good as all their food! Plus with their “Lean’ version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier also. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich.

6 Carbs to Add to Your Diet to Help You Stay Slim

6 Carbs to Add to Your Diet to Help You Stay SlimEating Well

Find out which “good” carbs to add to your diet to lose weight.
I’ve never been a fan of low-carb diets: our bodies and our brains need carbohydrates to work effectively. Of course, not all carbohydrates are created equally. First of all, fruits, dairy and vegetables are all sources of carbohydrates. And when it comes to starches, there are indeed “good” carbs (we’ll get to that in a sec) and the “bad” ones that, if you eat them all the time, can raise your risk of developing diseases like heart disease and diabetes. (We’re talking about doughnuts, cakes and even refined white breads.) On the flip side, eating “good carbs” in place of refined ones can reduce your risk of these very same diseases—and may even help you to lose weight because they’re generally rich in feel-full fiber. One study in the Journal of Nutrition found that eating three servings of whole grains a day helped people reduce their total body fat and abdominal fat. Here are 6 “great” carbs to keep in your diet.

 

1. Whole-Wheat Pasta
Because sometimes you just need pasta—and whole-wheat kinds offer two to three times more fiber than refined white varieties, but they’re just as versatile and delicious. (Similiarly whole-wheat bread and brown rice are healthier choices than their “white” counterparts.)…

 

 

 

2. Quinoa
Consider it souped-up couscous. A delicately flavored whole grain, it provides some fiber (2 grams per half cup) and a good amount of protein (4 grams). Note: Research shows protein can help you feel full for longer. Rinsing quinoa removes any residue of saponin, its natural bitter protective coating.

To cook: Bring 2 cups water or broth to a boil; add 1 cup quinoa. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork…..

You would be hard pressed to find a more perfect Autumn day out than what today was! About 70 degrees and sunny with a light breeze through out the day! Was outside most of the day and didn’t really plan on anything for dinner and didn’t feel like cooking tonight. So that meant one thing “The Kitchen is Closed!” So it was Izzy’s tonight, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Ruffle’s Light Chips and an Ice Cold Diet Dr. Pepper.

 

 

Subway and Jimmy John’s are good but their not a close second to Izzy’s. I would put Izzy’s Corned Beef up against any other. Plus with their “Lean’ version of the Corned Beef it makes it healthier also. The sandwich contains 170 calories and 16 carbs per serving (1/2 Sandwich) and 340 calories and 32 carbs for a Full Sandwich. I had the Full, as usual, along with a serving of Ruffle’s Light Potato Chips and their 80 calories and 17 carbs per serving.

10 Easy Ways to Eat Healthy PortionsDiabetic living logo

How to Eat What You Love
Diabetes shouldn’t equal deprivation. Moderation is key, and following a few tips can avoid bad habits that leave you with feelings of guilt. From pizza to potatoes, we give you options to enjoy the foods you crave

 

Favor Whole, Fresh Foods
Processing foods tends to concentrate the calories and carbohydrate. Consider this: For 15 grams of carb, you could eat either 4 fresh apricots or just 1/2 cup apricots canned in juice. And for 15 grams of carb, you could eat either 1-1/4 cups strawberries or a mere 1-1/2 tablespoons all-fruit strawberry preserves…..

 

 

Train Your Eyes
A typical 12-ounce baked potato at restaurants has 70 grams of carb, whereas 3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) of boiled red-skin potatoes has just 17 grams of carb. Weigh or measure spuds, rice, and other foods at home so you’ll be able to more accurately size up portions when eating out…..

Eating with Diabetes: Counting ”Net” Carbs

July 23, 2013 at 9:07 AM | Posted in diabetes | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , ,

I count carbs and recently a friend told me to start counting “net carbs”. So I did a little research on Carbs vs Net Carbs and there seems to be some controversy. Here’s what I found from a couple of sites.

 

 
Eating with Diabetes: Counting ”Net” Carbs
What Are Net Carbs? How Do They Affect Blood Sugar?
— By Amy Poetker, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator

 

Since low carbohydrate diets became popular, the phrase “net carbs” has become a fairly regular fixture on the labels of food products. But, if you are not familiar with the term you may be wondering what in the world it means!

There are three types of carbohydrates: starches, sugars and fiber. All three types of carbs are added up and listed as Total Carbohydrates on the Nutrition Facts Label of a food product.

The concept of net carbs is based on the fact that, although it is considered a carbohydrate, dietary fiber is not digested the same way the other two types of carbohydrates (starches and sugars) are. While starches and sugars are broken down into glucose (blood sugar), fiber isn’t treated the same way. The fiber you eat passes through the body undigested and helps add bulk to your stool (among other benefits). The indigestibility of fiber is where the idea of “net carbs” comes in. In fact, sometimes, net carbs are sometimes referred to as “digestible carbs.”

In recent years, food manufacturers have started including net carbs in addition to total carbs when labeling products. Many foods proudly display net carbs on their labels to entice both low-carb diet fans and people with diabetes.

While the concept of net carbs can be utilized in diabetes meal planning, read labels with a discerning eye. At present there are no mandated rules for calculating or labeling net carbs on food packages. The FDA does not regulate or oversee the use of these terms, and exactly what is listed as “net carbs” can vary dramatically from product to product. Some products calculate net carbs as total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber, other labels reflect net carbs as total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber minus sugar alcohols, and still others calculate net carbs as total carbohydrates, minus dietary fiber minus sugar alcohols minus grams of protein.

Many packaged foods that are marketed as high in fiber low in carbs actually add extra fiber, such as inulin, polydextrose and maltodextrin, to food products to lower the net carb serving. Most nutrition experts agree that these “stealth fibers ” do not have the same health benefits and may not have the same benign affect on blood sugar levels as foods that contain naturally occurring fiber. As you can see, the whole issue of “net carbs” can get tricky very fast. And for people with diabetes, for whom carbohydrate counting and blood glucose control is a serious issue, referring to net carbs on a food label can have serious consequences.

However, counting net carbs can work for people with diabetes who use a meal-planning technique known as carbohydrate counting to help balance their blood sugar levels—when done correctly.

Here’s how a person with diabetes can count net carbs safely and effectively:
The food in question must contain at least 5 grams of dietary fiber in the serving size you are planning to eat.
Read the Nutrition Facts label or look up the nutrition facts of the food to find both the total carbohydrates and total fiber for the serving size you plan to eat.
Subtract HALF the total grams of fiber from the total grams of carbohydrates to calculate the net carbs in your food serving.
Always perform this calculation yourself and do not rely on “net carb” totals listed on any food label.

The whole point of counting net carbs versus total carbs is to allow someone to eat more of a carbohydrate-containing food without adversely affecting their blood sugar levels. If you find the issue of net carbs confusing, don’t worry about it. There is no reason to use this technique if counting total carbohydrates works well for you. Both options can work as long as you are doing them correctly and reading “net carb” labels with a discerning eye.

For more specific information or help, talk to your health care provider. The American Diabetes Association‘s National Call Center also offers live advice from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday at 1-800-DIABETES or 1-800-342-2383.

 

 

http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/health_articles.asp?id=1652

 

 

 

 

In an effort to cash in on the low-carb craze, food manufacturers have invented a new category of carbohydrates known as “net carbs,” which promises to let dieters eat the sweet and creamy foods they crave without suffering the carb consequences.

 

But the problem is that there is no legal definition of the “net,” “active,” or “impact” carbs popping up on food labels and advertisements. The only carbohydrate information regulated by the FDA is provided in the Nutrition Facts label, which lists total carbohydrates and breaks them down into dietary fiber and sugars.

 

Any information or claims about carbohydrate content that appear outside that box have not been evaluated by the FDA.

Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham Sandwich w/ Creamy Tomato Soup

Today’s Menu: Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham Sandwich w/ Creamy Tomato SoupRosemary Ham Tomato Soup 003

 

 

Busy afternoon as I went for my 6 month check-up at my Oncologist. I’m very lucky to have found not only one the finest Oncologist but one of the friendliest and with a super staff! I’ve been seeing him since November of 1998. He’s helped through some really difficult times with not only Melanoma Cancer but a variety of aches and illnesses, proud to call him a friend. Anyway he read my scan reports and everything was negative on the Cancer front! This month almost to the very day marks my Anniversary of being Cancer Free also, 9 years! It’s been a struggle but I’m still here! For dinner, a very light dinner. I prepared a Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham Sandwich w/ Creamy Tomato Soup.

 

 

I used Kroger Brand Sliced Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham. I had never tried this Ham until last week, sorry it took me so long to try it! It’s sliced really thin and the Ham just melts in your mouth. Nice flavor and it’s only 70 calories 0 carbs per serving. I served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese, which is only 40 calories and 0 carbs. So the Sandwich is a total of only 190 calories and 16 carbs.

 

 

I also heated up a can of my favorite Tomato Soup, Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. I’ve been using this a couple of years now. Creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. I added a half serving of Skyline Oyster Crackers, what’s Tomato Soup without Crackers! A light, low calorie, low carb, delicious dinner. For dessert a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Recipes for Busy Lives!
Say good-bye to fast-food fixes and vending machine pit stops to get you through the day. Instead, try our breakfast, lunch, and snacks ideas for your busy life. They’re easy, healthy, and delicious!
How to Build a Balanced Breakfast
By Marsha McCulloch, R.D., L.D.
Need help squeezing in the most important meal of the day? Breakfast is a breeze with these simple tips on how to make a balanced on-the-go meal, along with easy, satisfying, and diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas.

 
The Importance of Breakfast for People with Diabetes
Eating a healthful breakfast can help control blood glucose, hunger, and weight. Breakfast is a chance to fill up on healthful fuel for the day’s activities and fit in some important food groups.

Get more mileage out of your breakfast by including satisfying fiber from whole grains and fruit and protein from low-fat dairy products and other lean protein sources. Need ideas? This slideshow will give you the basics on how to put a simple breakfast together in a snap, along with meal ideas that are already done for you — right down to the nutrition information. If you’re not hungry in the morning, start with a partial meal and build up.

 
Build a Balanced Breakfast
When compiling your first meal of the day, remember this simple formula:

Whole grain + dairy/protein + fruit = healthy breakfast

Include whole grains for the starch portion of your meal. This will be your main carbohydrate source. The dairy/protein digests more slowly than carbohydrate, helping you feel satisfied. And fruit is rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber — plus it’s a healthy carbohydrate source.

Each of the following breakfasts has about 45 grams of carbohydrate and is a good source of fiber and protein. BONUS! They’re all easily portable if you’re on the go……
