The link to Diabetic Recipes is at the end of this article. But this blog site, as the word “Guide” in its name Diabetic Menu Guide indicates, has been focused on pointing out the general guidelines to consider when constructing a suitable diabetic menu plan. An example of this being the post on general principles.
The objective in providing the information in the articles posted here is to describe how foods contribute to our blood glucose levels and also to support an understanding of diabetes related information on a wide range of other topics that affect all diabetics. Those topics include diet, exercise, weight loss, high and low carbohydrate approaches to treatment, vegetarianism, blood testing, medical matters, scientific developments, and whatever else that seems might be of interest to my fellow diabetics – and I have an inventory of unused such material to add as time permits. Also, my companion blogs: Normal Blood Sugar Levels and Diabetes and Diabetic Food List + Plus provide much diabetes related information that should be of interest.
With regard to foods, I have emphasized that we should choose dietary items that as well as doing no harm to the person suffering from diabetes, are agreeable to the individual’s palate and personal food preferences.
But I have shied away from actually suggesting specific diabetic menu items because I am not sufficiently knowledgeable myself to do so and I have not been able to find an appropriate outside source that can provide the complete diabetic nutritional information as well as suitable recipes.
Well, those days are over, I have found a solution!
I came across a source today, and I’m compelled to bring it to your attention without delay, a source of delicious, diabetic friendly recipes with complete preparation instructions and essential nutrition information. And they are nicely illustrated. What more can you want?
And if you see this in time and it is of interest, there’s a delicious sounding recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes ready for Tuesday next, “pancake-day”, Shrove Tuesday. I am hoping I will be eating some myself !
The source, Chef Barrae, invites you to join her on a journey to improve your dietary and diabetic health and enjoy foods that you may have considered off limits. The recipes conform to the American Diabetes Association’s guidelines for low carbohydrate content, and we all know that carbohydrate is both friend and enemy. Can you imagine a diet that includes classic Italian, Chinese, Mexican and Southwestern restaurant types of foods? Great additions to the diabetic menu plan.
In addition to the Pumpkin Pancakes, for those who like cauliflower, as I do, there is also a Cauliflower Casserole you may wish to try.
