Living with Diabetes………….

Replace Some Carbs With Good Fat – Monounsaturated fats — nuts, avocados, olive oil, and canola oil — can help lower your blood sugar. Just avoid huge portions so you don’t take in too many calories. Add nuts and avocado to salads and entrees. Look for salad dressings, marinades, and sauces made with canola or olive oil. You can also cook with these two oils.

Cooking healthier…….

Choose lean meats and reduced-fat dairy products and limit processed foods to minimize hidden fats. Nuts, seeds, fish, soy, olives and avocado are all healthier options because they include the essential long-chain fatty acids and these fats are accompanied by other good nutrients. If you add fats when cooking, keep them to a minimum and use monounsaturated oils such as olive and canola oil.

Lean is keen………..

Fats can have an effect on blood sugar. Go with low-fat dairy products and lean cuts of meat. Butter and olive oil are the fats of choice. Opt for baked or grilled preparations over fried.

COOKING TIPS FOR OSTRICH STEAK

OSTRICH COOKING TIPS AND MARINADE RECIPES
Ostrich is a very lean meat that looks more like a beef steak than poultry. It has a subtle flavor with no gamey taste. Ostrich is best served cooked rare to medium-rare. It cooks quickly so don’t take your eyes off the steak while it’s frying. Ostrich steak needs about 2½ minutes a side to cook up to a nice medium-rare. It should have a dark pink interior when sliced. You can serve ostrich with any vegetable side dish. A light gravy made from the marinade makes it even more delicious.
Ostrich has a dark pinkish meat and a very subtle flavor. It cooks quickly and will be wasted if you try you drown it in strong flavor. Fry it with lots of butter and use a sauce such as bechamel or light wine sauce.

The meat continues to cook a bit after being removed from the heat source, that’s why it’s important not to cook it past rare to medium-rare. Letting it “rest” before slicing gives the meat time to reabsorb the juices that would otherwise be lost. When you cut it and eat it the meat will be juicier and tastier.

Ingredients
Rub it with a mixture of garlic, pepper, oil and let it sit in the fridge for up to 5 hours.

Or Marinade

Marinades for Ostrich Steak

2 ostrich filets
2 tbs. soy sauce
1 tsp. ginger grated
1 tbs. sesame Oil
splash of rice wine
Splash of orange juice or pineapple juice

Marinade for Ostrich Filet

2 ostrich filets
splash of wine
cup of chicken stock
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
2 Rosemary sprigs
2 Thyme sprigs
2 tbs oil
squeeze of lemon

Instructions
1 – Heat a skillet to hot, add a little olive oil or butter.
2 -Cook filets for 2 ½ minutes per side
3 – Remove and place on a plate. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes
4 – Add the marinade to the hot skillet
5 – cook uncovered to the right consistency, not to watery but not too thick
6 – Slice filets across the grain
7 – Pour sauce over the filets
8 – Serve with Rice or potatoes and vegetables.

Notes
Wine is a great marinade for ostrich. Whether you use white, red or a rose it makes the meat tender and tasty without overpowering the ostrich. If you don’t have wine, use a vinaigrette. Mixing together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic and lemon juice makes for a good marinade too.

Ostrich is very lean. It tastes very much like steak as opposed to fowl. It’s a bit on the bland side so it’s a good idea to use a light gravy or sauce.

22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

From the Diabetic Living Online website its 22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes. Very good article on the foods to avoid with Diabetes and tips on still having your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with satisfying and delicious alternatives. Read the entire article at the Diabetic Living Online website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 

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 Foods

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………

 

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……

 

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Sometimes known as the bad boy on the breakfast buffet, traditional biscuits and gravy is indeed high in calories, fat (particularly saturated fat), and sodium. For example, the McDonald’s Biscuit and Gravy* entree has 570 calories and 13 grams of saturated fat.

That amount of saturated fat may not sound like too much, but consider that the American Diabetes Association suggests eating less than 7 percent of calories from saturated fat — and for most people, this is about 15 grams of saturated fat per day. Similarly, Bob Evans’ Sausage Gravy* recipe has 1,828 milligrams of sodium, exceeding the ADA’s recommended 1,500-milligram maximum per day……..
