Diet of a Diabetic

It’s always been so difficult for me to know about the perfect diet of a diabetic patient in a single website. As they write all those unnecessary things with the important ones and sometimes even digress from the topic, which makes almost every one of us to feel annoying at sometimes.

That’s why today I’m gonna share a diet plan for a diabetic patient, feel free to share it.


Food you should eat: (The best ones)

  • Green vegetables are the best for keepin’ a good balance in diabetes.
  • Add Cottage Cheese in your daily diet: you probably can enjoy it in your Salads; (for the Cheese Dressing Salad scroll a bit down). 
  • Barley could be the key in warding off diabetes. You should consume it once in a week. (scroll down for the Barley Bread/Roti recipe)
  • Olive Oil is also the best thing for diabetics. You can easily consume it while using in your daily meal (1-2 tbsp) or use it as your salad dressing.
  • Brocolli is a nice green vegetable, you’ll deffinitely enjoy eatin’ it.
  • You should try including a small piece of baked/ grilled Fish OR Tuna, if not daily then at least once in a week.
  • Husk: This fiber supplement has been proven to help people with diabetes, control blood sugar better.
  • Spinach is one of many leafy greens that have been shown to drop the risk of
    developing diabetes.
  • Cinnamon: Several studies have shown that this delicious spice can help reduce blood sugar.
  • Turmeric is proven to be the best nutralizer. Adding it to the daily meal (while cooking) can help nutralize the bad effects of the food.
  • Grape fruit is also a good food for diabetes.
  • Bitter guard is known as the key ingredient in reducing the high sugar level to moderate.
  • Yogurt is also a good choice.
  • use Skimmed Milk instead of using full-fat milk.
  • Raw porridge Oats also helps in reducing blood sugar.
  • Roasted Grams are best while you feel hungry at odd times.

 

Food you should not eat: ( The worst ones)

  • Coffee Drinks:
    Many coffee shops loads the mug of your coffee with a lot of unnecessary carbs, which is completely worst choice for a diabetic. Whereas the regular mug of black coffee is a good thing in controlling blood sugar.
  • Battered Fish Dinners:
    Avoid Fried Breaded Fish with high carb sauces or Fries. Whereas Simple baked fish is the best choice for diabetics.
  • Fruit Juice Beverages:
    Avoid them because they contain a high content of calories and sugar.
  • French Fries:
    Most of the fried items should be avoided. As they contain Fats, and probably are high in calories.
  • Purchased Cookies:
    Home-made cookies are a good choice but, Purchased cookies are always loaded with Butter, high-fructose corn syrup, shortening, margarine, and partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated oils. Which is probably the worst choice for a diabetic.
  • Fried Chicken:
    Fried chicken is a pack of fats and calories, that’s why it is better to stay away from it as an alternative you can try a less fatty choice which is Baked/Grilled chicken. 
  • Canned fruits:
    are worst for diabetics because it contains excessive amount of sugars.
  • Frizzy Drinks 
  • And obviously Bacon and Alchohol drinks.

Recipe of barley Roti:

If we look a few hundred years back, we would know that people of that times always used barley flour instead of white flour (we use nowadays). But I think it’s impssible now to live those disease free days by taking us back to those time, living their lifestyle is way too difficult now. But there’s a nice step we can take to reduce the risks of the dangerous diseases that have become quite normal these days.
What we can do is, just plan a tradition, light but nutritious diet once or twice in a week. That could probably help us in a better way!

When I heared about that old time’s Barley Roti. And I searched that on google and found a very dry and thick kind of Roti. Which was so undelicious by look. And was difficult to handle while cooking.

But I have got a very nice and easy recipe of mine.. You’d love to try!

Food intake ways:

  • Make a good routine of taking you meals on time. By time I don’t mean to say there should be specific timing, but the right timing.
  • A diabetic should take meals in small portions which helps in better digestion.
  • Dinner should be eaten before 8 o’clock.
  • Must walk for at least 5 minutes after your dinner.
  • Never skip Breakfast!




So this is the short compilation of a Diabetic’s Diet. Hope this would help you in the best way!!
Have a nice day ❤

Barley Chapati

Hi everyone!

Today I’m gonna share a very easy thing with you… this recipe is the result of my own experiments. Hope you’d like it!

Barley as a Nutritious food:

It has a range of important vitamins and minerals: fiber, selenium, B vitamins, copper, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, niacin, and more. And when compared to many other grains, even other ancient whole-grains, barley is lower in fat and calories, but higher in dietary fiber and certain trace minerals.  

A very easy way of making barley a nice thing to be eaten…

You’ll be surprised when you’d see the result of your work; to make a chapati with barley flour, all you need is:

  • 3 cups of Barley flour
  • A teaspoon of Yeast
  • Salt
  • Warm water



    Now just mix all the ingredents together. Add enough water to make a runny paste, the consistency should be same as like pancake mixture.
    Now heat the non-stick pan you’re gonna make it in. Brush it with just a drop of oil. When you see the pan is nicely heated, pour the batter of barley with the help of a ladle & spread the mixture with the back of the ladle while circling it and stretching the batter out of the circle again and again.​​

     Wait for it to get dry and form small air bubbles on the upper side you can see… just turn it upside down with the help of a food turner.  Keep pressing it with the turner from different sides. And when you see that cooked colour of golden and brown on it,​

    ​remove your chapati from the pan. And that’s all!
    You can also brush the cooked chapati with ghee as it keeps it very soft and chewable.

    p.s. I’ll be posting a small compilation of DIET OF A DIABETIC very soon. Keep intouch for that!

    Tiramisu

    Origin

    Tiramisu is an Italian dessert enriched with the touch of coffee.


    So it’s about today that I thought; I must try some nice dessert, and Tiramisu just came to my mind.

    The recipe I’m sharing here is not how Original Italian tiramisu is made. Instead, this recipe is a result of a few variations. And it’s very common here in Saudi Arabia 

    Recipe

    Ingredients:

    Heavy Cream/ regular Cream
    Nutella
    Tea biscuits
    Instant Coffee
    Cocoa Powder
    Sugar
    Vanilla Essence

    Formula:


    Beat the cream for almost 20 min non-stop  with a few breaks. OR until it turns slightly thicker than before. Add sugar & vanilla essence in it and beat to combine them up.

    Now pour 1/4 part of your cream in another bowl. Add Nutella in that cream It’s up to you, to your desired taste. Mix it well and leave it aside.
    Its time to make a cup of coffee with warm water, and just dip the biscuits for 1-2 seconds only and set them in any baking tray as a base. {I took double biscuit each time and it formed a nice thick base}
    the second layer would be the Nutella-cream mi
    xture.
    And now again its the turn for the coffee dipped biscuits. For the final layer or for the topping you need to spread the cream all over.
    In the end just dust the cocoa powder over the cream and cover the tray with cling film and let it refrigerate for almost 2-3 hours. 

    Tips & Tricks!

    • Don’t dip the biscuits longer than 3 seconds. As it would make your base so wobbly.
    • Try not to use the whipping cream. Because it has a kind of foamy texture and that doesn’t taste well.
    • If you’ll add less sugar in the vanilla cream mixture it would be better because Nutella is way too sweeter so, you have to balance the amount of sugar by yourself. IT’S ALL UPTO YOU.
    Do let me know what was your first experience with this. And for any queries you can comment below. 🙂
