Low fat cooking hints………..

* Use low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk, evaporated skim milk or cornstarch instead of cream in sauces or soups.

* Use pesto, salsas, chutneys and vinegars in place of sour creams, butter and creamy sauces.

* Choose lean meats and reduced-fat dairy products and limit processed foods to minimise 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.

Diabetic Cooking Hints…………………………….

Eat Foods That Won’t Spike Blood Sugar – Good choices that aren’t likely to cause a big rise in your levels include lean meat, poultry, fish, avocados, salad vegetables, eggs, and cheese. Add these items to your plate to help balance the foods you eat that have carbs.

Healthy cooking hints……………….

To save on fat and calories, use low-fat plain yogurt in place of sour cream or mayonnaise, and buy low-fat cheese and milk instead of full-fat versions, says O’Rourke. Add flavor to vegetables with low-fat cheese, nuts, salad dressing or margarine with no trans fat; then add herbs and spices. Blatner suggests an Italian blend on green beans, curry on cauliflower, cumin on sauteed bell peppers, and lemon pepper on broccoli.

Low Fat Cooking Hints…………..

* Remove the skin from poultry. (You can do so after cooking, since the meat doesn’t absorb much of the fat.)
* For the leanest option when preparing ground meat recipes, ask your butcher to grind skinned, boneless turkey or chicken breast.
* Use Canadian-style bacon. Ounce for ounce, it has 116 fewer calories than regular bacon.

Cutting the fat……………

When shopping for meat, choose cuts like skinless chicken breast and ground turkey breast, and consider buying ones labeled “choice” or “select” instead of “prime.” Consider swapping out high fat versions of meat with leaner ones. For example, if you like bacon with breakfast, try Canadian bacon or turkey bacon instead of pork. Or swap out the ground beef for burgers with half extra-lean ground beef and half ground turkey. Plan on eating seafood twice a week. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel are all high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. To make a big change use Buffalo or Bison instead of Beef. It cooks up quicker, leaner, less calories, and tastes better.

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.
