Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Diabetes and Meat……………

Meats with “loin” in the name are smart choices for people with diabetes because they are lean. Pork tenderloin, pork loin chops and beef sirloin steak are a few examples. People with diabetes should avoid high fat and processed meats. High fat meats contain 8 g of fat and 100 calories per 1-oz serving. Meats to avoid include: prime cuts of beef, such as ribs.

Peanut Butter and Chili……………

If you are making Vegetarian Chili add a heaping amount of smooth and creamy peanut butter. The subtle hint of sweet paired with the peanut’s inherent nuttiness is enough to balance out the spice and acid of vegetarian chili.

Grilled Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Reduced Fat Potato Chips

Today’s Menu: Grilled Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Reduced Fat Potato Chips

 

To start the day off I prepared a Potatoes and Ham Breakfast Skillet. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham. Just cooked the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with Sargento Off the Block Shredded Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 72 degrees and cloudy out. More rain moving in overnight. After Breakfast I got the cart out of the shed and planted Mom’s flowers she had purchased. Did a few other things around the yard. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Reduced Fat Potato Chips.

 

It was so beautiful out I just had to fire the grill up! I decided to grill up some Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. These are delicious no matter how you prepare them! There’s 2 Sausages per package. I cut the Sausages in half so I’ll have 4 of them I grilled. So I Heated up the grill for about 5 minutes and added the Sausages. I kept turning them so not to burn them. Cooked until heated through and served. Why do things taste better when grilled! Served them on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hot Dog Buns and topped them with Emeril’s New York Deli Style Mustard. I’m using the new Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hot Dog Buns. Thank you Aunt Millie for these! The Buns are 45 calories and only 2 net carbs per bun! Only 2 net carbs! If you have Diabetes, or Diabetes 2 like myself, these Buns are perfect. Aunt Millie’s also has Hamburger Buns and Dinner Rolls that are low calorie and carb. Can’t wait to try these.

 

To go with the Grilled Sausages we had Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

Browning chicken……………

Pour a little sparkling water over a chicken you want to roast so it will brown perfectly in the oven. The minerals in the water improve cooking and soften the meat.

Pass the butter…………….

Butter cannot handle high temperatures. To prevent it from burning or blackening when panfrying meat or vegetables, add a drizzle of oil so that your butter can heat up without burning.
