Rinsing Canned Vegetables…….

You can cut down on sodium in canned vegetables and legumes, such as black beans and chickpeas, by rinsing them in water. That helps lower their sodium content by about 10 percent or more, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But rinsing can also remove some of the vitamin C from some canned vegetables, such as peas. Using no- or low-sodium canned foods is an even easier way to keep your sodium intake in check.

Hold the Salt……..

 
When grilling meat don’t add any salt until the meat is cooked to prevent it from getting dry and tough, as the salt will draw away moisture.

Cutting back your salt intake….

 

 

Packaged foods often have a lot of salt in them, since salt is a preservative. Cooking your own meals is the best way to control how much sodium goes into your food.

Reduce the salt…..

 
Many stocks have high levels of sodium, as do canned beans, vegetables and tomato paste. For this reason, save most of your seasoning until the end. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper as needed.

Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly

Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It’s true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence — thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutritional Guidelines
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
— 150 calories or less
— 3 g total fat or less
— 1.5 g saturated fat or less
— 0 g trans fat
— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

English Muffin Finalists

And the winner of the English muffin category is:
