From the Diabetic Living Online website its – Healthy Tips for Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. Tailgate and grill out and still eat healthy with these tips on how. Find all all the tips at the Diabetic Living Online website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 

Healthy Tips for Hot Dogs and Hamburgers
Yes, you can eat hot dogs and hamburgers on your diabetic diet. Just follow a few tips and tricks, and start enjoying these barbecue favorites guilt-free.

 

Where’s the Beef?
Hamburger meat, by government standards, is fresh or frozen ground beef without anything else added and can contain no more than 30 percent fat by weight. At the supermarket, hamburger meat is labeled with its percentage of lean meat and percentage of fat, such as 80/20 or 93/7. Not so at a friend’s barbecue or a ballpark grill. Here are some good rules of thumb:
— A 3-ounce serving of cooked meat is just right — there’s no need to pile on extra patties or order a large burger unless you share…….

6 Ways to Lighten Your Hot Dog or Hamburger
Go Topless
Ditch half the bun to cut carbs. Opt for a whole grain bun when you have the choice. If available, use a lettuce-leaf topper to help keep your fingers clean……

Scope Out the Grill
Look for vendors who use an open grill rather than a smooth-top grill. The open grill lets a little more fat drip away……

Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast!

 

 

After Lunch I went over to see Dad for a while. I had to get back and get some outdoor cleaning done. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then got the cart out so I could pull some weeds and spray some weed killer along our back property line. Beautiful outside today, 82 degrees and sunny! So for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dog w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

 

 

I used the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar, love these things!
