Easy Dinner Ideas for Diabetics

Does it feel like you are always looking for dinner ideas for diabetics? My goal and passion is to make eating healthy easy and mainstream! Of course, I always have quick diabetic recipes because who has time to cook these days? Even cooking food approved by the American Diabetes Association guidelines can be delicious with my trim and terrific recipes like this Smothered Chicken.  That’s why I decided to highlight my easy diabetic recipes in all my cookbooks.  So, look for a “D” in Kitchen 101, Eating Well To Fight Arthritis and Eating Well Through Cancer to quickly find diabetic recipes.

Why Protein for Type 2 Diabetes

The most common form of Diabetes Mellitus is Type 2 Diabetes, which occurs when the body does not appropriately respond to and produce insulin; which results in high blood sugar. Protein from meats such as poultry does not contain carbohydrate (which turns into glucose, aka sugar in the blood) so they do not raise blood sugar levels.

Low Fat Protein for Heart Health

Choose protein low in saturated fat is important for heart health and especially for those with diabetes. Choose poultry without the skin for less saturated fat and cholesterol. My trim and terrific healthy easy recipes make excellent dinner ideas for diabetics such as this Smothered Chicken recipe from KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence using boneless skinless chicken breasts. Who says you can’t have your favorite foods while still eating healthy and keeping to your diabetic meal plan?!

Fiber for Blood Sugar Control

Be sure to choose brown rice in your dinner ideas for diabetics as 1 cup of brown rice as 3 times the fiber as white rice. Fiber helps control blood sugar levels from spiking in those with Type 2 diabetes. Fiber also helps in weight management because it aides in digestion and helps keep you full and satisfies hunger.

Why I Use Kitchen Scissors

Do you have kitchen scissors? If not, kitchen scissors are truly one of my favorite gadgets. I always use them to cut chicken into tenders or to trim chicken. When you are making any of my diabetic chicken recipes, you can buy chicken breasts and cut into tenders yourself.

They are dishwasher safe and any gadget that helps cut kitchen time is high on my list. I promise you will find so many uses for kitchen scissors from trimming chicken to cutting pizza.
