Tailgating and gathering at a friends house for a day of Football is great but can be difficult if you have Diabetes. Well here’s some tips on How to Survive (and Thrive) at a Potluck. It’s all from the Diabetic Living On Line web site and I left the link at the bottom of the post.

Make & Take Tips!
For people with diabetes, potlucks can be a trove of temptation. Our potluck survival guide and recipes for healthy casseroles will help you stick to a guilt-free eating plan!

 

How to Survive (and Thrive) at a Potluck
Potluck buffet spreads can be loaded with temptations, but with the right approach, you can serve up some healthful choices and not feel deprived. Find simple tips and tricks to enjoy your next potluck without blowing your diabetes meal plan.

 

The Dish You Take
Smart potluck decisions start at home: Figure out a dish you can take that guarantees at least one healthful option. Then plan how other foods can fit on your plate.

Contributing foods that suit your meal plan lets you assume control over your potluck choices. Grilled veggies — served hot or cold — add nutritious variety to the table. Vegetable skewers with zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms, and peppers are easy to pick up — and with cubes of lean meat, they make an entree. Even casseroles can be healthy options if you pick diabetes-friendly recipes.

Remember salads, too, such as coleslaw, potato salad, or macaroni salad made healthy with generous amounts of colorful chopped vegetables and low-fat mayonnaise or plain low-fat yogurt.

For a sandwich buffet, think about whole wheat pita pocket halves. You can serve them with stuff-it-yourself fillings such as lean meats, tuna (not tuna salad), reduced-fat cheese, tomato, and spinach…..
