Pass the Olive Oil……….

Instead of tossing a pat of butter into your frying pan, try a splash of extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil.

No oil needed………..

Don’t add any oil to the pasta water. Some cooks are under the false assumption that a glug of olive oil will keep the strands from clumping. But that’s nothing a good stir won’t solve, plus oil could leave your pasta too slick for saucing.

Cutting back on salt…….

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.

A little Olive Oil goes a long way………….

Adding even just a little olive oil can really bring out the flavors of a dish. Works great on vegetarian dishes and pasta dishes.

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.

From the Diabetic Living Online website its – The Best Foods to Stock Your Pantry. Diabetic Friendly Foods and Seasonings for a healthier 2018. No-Salt Seasoning, Gingersnaps and Vanilla Wafers, Flavored Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar are just few of the items to stock your Pantry with. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018!

The Best Foods to Stock Your Pantry

Stocking nutritious, convenient staples in your pantry can save the day — and your health. These dietitian-approved suggestions for foods to keep on hand will ensure you have healthful options within reach.

Fill Your Pantry
Keeping your pantry supplied with healthful foods can make mealtime easier and help to shake the takeout habit. Here are 17 diabetic foods to stock.

No-Salt Seasoning
No-salt seasoning is a good replacement for seasoning salt or regular salt. It’s usually made from a mix of dried herbs and spices, and it can be used to flavor many dishes…….

Gingersnaps and Vanilla Wafers
Gingersnaps and vanilla wafers are nice but not overindulgent treats. Three or four small cookies make a perfect companion to a cup of tea…..

Flavored Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar
Flavored olive oil can be used for dipping vegetables and crackers or mixing with tuna in place of mayonnaise — but use a light hand, because the calories and fat add up quickly! Try lemon-infused olive oil (citron oil) drizzled over fish, chicken, vegetables, or salad greens for a burst of flavor without adding salt.

Balsamic vinegar is a mild vinegar that (along with a drizzle of olive oil) can dress up salads and vegetables……..

Rice it up……..

To kick up the flavor your rice dish, heat one tablespoon of extra light olive oil in a pot and sauté one tablespoon of garlic for two minutes. Add the rice and sauté until lightly browned. Cook the rice according to package directions, adding vegetable broth instead of water for flavor. Another way is to add a little fresh lemon juice to the rice as it cooks, this also helps the rice not to clump.

I use this one all the time……


Brush a little olive oil on your grater before using and cheese will wash right off.
