Pop on over…..

Learn to make a great popover! Bread on the table is a natural for any gathering, but that basket can make it easy to nosh on a lot of carbs before the main event, which is something to be aware of for those living with diabetes. Popovers are a wonderful light and airy roll to sub in, and since they have very little flour in them they can be a more diabetes-friendly alternative.

Healthy Cooking Hints…..

 

10 simple cooking tips for people with diabetes or anyone wanting to cook the healthy way:

1 – Eat a low saturated fat diet. Cut the fat off meat, remove skin from chicken and where possible avoid cream, butter and high fat products.
2 – Use low fat products. Such as 25-50% reduced fat cheese, no-fat yoghurt, skim milk and low fat margarines.
3 – Avoid frying in fat. Use cooking spray or baking paper instead.
4 – Get your 5 + 3. Include 5 serves of vegetables and 2 or 3 serves of fruit each day.
5 – Fiber up. Aim for 30g of fiber each day.
6 – Omit or use salt sparingly. A low-sodium diet is ideal for people with diabetes.
7 – Avoid coconut milk. It contains 40g of fat per cup! Instead make my version of using evaporated light milk and coconut essence at only 4g of fat per cup.
8 – Limit sugar. Having small amounts of sugar is fine, for example one of my cakes may have a third cup sugar but it serves ten. Divided up there isn’t much sugar at all.
9 – Opt for Basmati or Doongara rice. Both have a lower GI than normal white rice.
10 – Choose cold-climate fruit. Fruit grown in a colder climate such as berries, cherries, apples, pears etc have a lower GI. Tropical fruits have a high GI rating and are quickly absorbed into the blood stream.

Being smart about carbs……

Choose those that give you energy that lasts and fiber. When a recipe calls for “white” flour, “white” rice, or other refined grains, try substituting whole wheat flour, brown rice, or other whole-grain flours or grain products. You can also use ground nuts such as almond or hazelnut (filbert) meal. Or you can mix several of these whole-grain ingredients together in the same recipe.

Add vegetables for fiber and moisture……

One way to up the nutrients in your baked goods is to add some shredded or chopped veggies. Zucchini, carrots, riced cauliflower and spinach are good ones to try. You’ll increase the fiber, which helps prevent blood sugar spikes. You’ll also add valuable vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Additionally, veggies add moisture so you may be able to cut back on fat.

Preheat your oven…..

Don’t put something in the oven if it isn’t preheated. Your food will most likely not bake properly. For instance, the bottoms may burn, but the inside may not be cooked at all. This is especially important for recipes with high temperatures and short baking times.

Less Salt…..

Don’t automatically add salt to your food, taste it first. Add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables. It can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

Pair bold flavors with whole-grain pastas……

Depending on the product, whole-grain pastas can taste mildly nutty or profoundly earthy. Match the robust taste with equally hearty ingredients. Think garlic, red pepper, anchovies, tangy tomato sauces, and strong cheeses.
