Healthy Snacks for Kids
Snacks can help children recharge and manage blood sugar levels between meals. If your snack-idea list is running dry, check out these easy diabetic snacks packed with nutrients a child’s body needs. (Adults will love these snacks, too!)

Snacking Strategies for Kids with Diabetes

Snacks often supply a significant share of children’s daily calories, so it’s important the snacks are nutrition-packed. Offer snacks that supply at least one of the following: protein to support growth, complex carbohydrates for slow-release energy, fiber to aid digestive health, and vitamins and minerals to keep the body running smoothly…….

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon PB2 powdered chocolate-flavor peanut butter over 2 cups piping-hot plain popcorn. Some organic microwave popcorn brands offer varieties without salt or oil. Alternatively, pop plain kernels in a microwave-safe glass popcorn popping bowl or air popper…….

 

Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

Drain, rinse, and pat dry a 15-ounce can of no-salt-added garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas), then spray with nonstick cooking spray and toss lightly with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Bake at 425 degrees F about 30-45 minutes until crunchy. Serving is 1/4 cup roasted chickpeas. Need a faster option? Try sea salt-flavor ChickPz from the Nutty Bean Co………

 

Mini Cheese and Turkey Melts

Place three slices of cocktail bread on a baking sheet, then spread 1 teaspoon honey mustard and place 1 ounce natural deli turkey on each of them. Top each with 1 teaspoon reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 of a cherry tomato, then place under broiler a few minutes until the cheese melts…….

Mom’s making Buckeyes!

December 19, 2014 at 10:26 AM | Posted in dessert | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Mom had the flu for quite a while but she’s finally feeling good again, and making Buckeyes! Everyone that has these are of the same opinion, the best they’ve ever had! The thing that sets these apart from other Buckeye Candies is the Rice Krispies she adds. So if your looking for a Buckeye Candy Recipe, look no further.

 

 

 

The Old Family Buckeye Recipebuckeyes-001
It’s that time of year when the requests start coming in for my Mom’s Buckeyes. Back when I was working I was everyones favorite person when I would bring in a batch of my Mom’s Buckeyes. It’s been 13 years since I lost my leg to melanoma cancer and unable to work but to this day but I still get request’s from fellow past workers for my Mom’s Buckeyes. It seems that everyone that has had them all say the same thing “The best Buckeyes I’ve ever had!” I think it’s the Rice Krispies that sets them apart from other Buckeye Candies. When you make a batch of these and try them I’m sure you’ll agree, let me know! These are not diabetes friendly but they are delicious. We tried making them by using reduced fat Peanut Butter and Sugar Free Chocolate but they just didn’t come out the same.

 
Ingredients:

Recipe will make about 60 balls

1 – Stick Butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter
1 – Box (1 LB) Confectioner Sugar
2 – Cups Jiff Smooth Peanut Butter
3 – Cups Rice Krispies
1 – 12 oz. Package Chocolate Chips
1 – Small Bar Hershey’s Milk Chocolate
1/2 Bar Paraffin Wax

 
Directions:

* In a large bowl mix Butter, Sugar, Peanut Butter, and Rice Krispies (With Hands)
* Chill the mixture for at least 2 hours.
* Then take the mixture and roll into individual balls. The size can vary no set size.
* Melt all the Chocolate and Paraffin Wax in a double broiler or in a sauce pan on low heat stirring until smooth.
* With one or two forks dip each of the balls into the Chocolate/Wax. Drain excess off the balls and place on a sheet pan covered with wax paper and refrigerate for several hours until Chocolate has hardened into a shell covering the balls.
* Now enjoy them!

Bad Foods You Should Be Eating

“Bad” Foods You Should Be Eating? Read all about at the Eatingwell website, and enjoy the “Bad” Food!

 
Bad Foods You Should Be Eating

Some healthful foods have gotten bad reps they just can’t shake. Do you avoid peanut butter because you think it’s super-fattening? Have you banned egg yolk because you’re concerned about your heart health? Get the good truth about these and more “misunderstood” foods and why you should eat them—in moderation, of course.

 

EatingWell2
Peanut Butter

The bad rep: Peanut butter is super-fattening.

The good news: Peanut Butter is high in fat but that doesn’t mean it’s fattening. (Gaining or losing weight, and body fat, basically comes down to balancing calories.) That said, peanut butter is a concentrated source of calories, so you don’t want to go overboard. But you don’t need to eat tons to feel satisfied: just a tablespoon (90 calories) or two of peanut butter goes a long way. Plus, peanut butter provides protein and folate, a B vitamin important for the healthy development of new cells….

 
Eggs

The bad rep: A significant source of dietary cholesterol, egg yolks are off-limits for those concerned about heart health.

The good truth: Medical experts now emphasize that saturated fats and trans fats are bigger culprits in raising blood cholesterol than dietary cholesterol is. Plus, eggs are super-satisfying: in one study, people who ate a scrambled-egg-and-toast breakfast felt more satisfied, and ate less at lunch, than they did when they ate a bagel that had the same number of calories. Egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin, compounds that research links with reduced risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in people over 50…..
