Diabetes Friendly Recipe
People with diabetes can enjoy a variety of healthy carbohydrate choices as part of a
healthy diet.
Avoiding carbohydrates can cause low blood sugars, constipation, lower intake of
vitamins and minerals and low energy levels.
It is important that you try to choose good quality carbohydrate choices such as whole
grain brown rice or quinoa, whole grain pasta or couscous, potato or sweet potato with
the skin left on, beans and lentils, or whole grain bread as part of your meal. These
high fibre choices help to slow down digestion of your meal and improve your blood
sugar response to the food. In addition, they are loaded with healthy vitamins, minerals
and the energy you need to live, think, and exercise.
Watching your portion sizes is also important to keep your blood sugars and weight in
A healthy portion size of carbohydrate foods at your meals is roughly the size of
your fist or one quarter of your plate.
Protein foods such as meat, chicken, fish etc. are also an important part of a
healthy diet. Just because protein doesn’t affect your blood sugars it doesn’t
mean you can get away with as much protein as you want. A healthy amount of
protein is the size of the palm of your hand or one quarter of your plate.
Half of your plate should be coming from vegetables, cooked or raw.
To make a complete and healthy meal for people with diabetes, add your high fibre
carbohydrate choice, a salad or some cooked veggies to this delicious recipe.
