Diabetes is one metabolic disorder that causes high sugar levels in the blood. Across the world, this ‘sugar’ dysfunction is widely common even though people can have diabetes and not realize it. Knowing the signs and symptoms to watch for can help you identify a possible blood sugar problem. Common signs of diabetes are: overly thirsty, frequent urination, fatigue, blurry vision, sudden weight loss, irritable, slow healing sores or cuts, neuropathy or tingling or numbness in the hands, legs or feet, dry itchy skin.
A well-maintained diabetic diet chart approved by dietitian and relevant exercise routine is the best support line to keep the disease under control. Keeping your weight in the optimal, having a regular exercise routine and eating diabetic friendly foods that are low in sugar and carbs will help you live your best life while managing your condition.
We agree that you are going through many changes already. Giving up sugar is especially brutal. Not getting to have your favorite snacks is another. But there is a way to cheat the limitations. We can still feast on a few tasty snacks when you feel hungry or according to your diet time slot. Eating at regular intervals and limiting sugars and carbs can help maintain a healthy blood sugar. Here are a few delicious yet full of nutrition Recipes for Diabetics.
1. Roasted Chickpeas
This is the very first recipe that comes to mind if we plan to eat healthy snakes. The name garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, are incredibly nutritious peas. There are around 15 grams of protein and 13 grams of fibres in a 1-cup (approximately 160-gram) serving of chickpeas, making them an excellent snack for people with diabetes.
The most common way to make chickpeas light to snack on is by roasting them with a bit of cumin powder, a pinch of pepper powder and fresh lime juice. It makes them crunchy and delicious. Some people think they taste even better if roasted with olive oil and herbs of your choice. This is one of those recipes that you can experiment with what way suits you best. Hopefully, you will come up with a couple of different flavors.
2. Sugar-Free Brownie
We can alter something familiar like a brownie to make it suitable for diabetic patients. A brownie you can bake in the microwave? Yup, it is as good as it sounds and tastes better; the brownie can also be vegan. Use almond meal, peanut butter, sugar-free chocolate, and a few sugar substitutes. Add up everything and directly put it into a cup. This way, we save a lot of time and work cleaning utensils.
Sugar free brownie mixes can also be found in the baking aisle of your grocery store.
These are so tasty even your friends who don’t need watch their sugar may be wanting one.
3. Greek Yogurt
Sweeten up yogurt naturally with fresh berries, make it savoury with a pesto swirl, or add nuts for crunch. Just pick a sugar-free yogurt and add your favourite toppings. Along with nearly twice the protein of the regular variety, Greek yogurt holds more lasting power to keep your tummy happy for a long time which could help with weight supervision and keeping blood sugar under the limit. Yogurt also gives a good boost of calcium and vitamin D. This is a combination thought to help optimize blood sugar control.
4. Easy Protein Bars
There are plenty of no bake recipes for homemade protein bars. You may need to do some experimentation to find a recipe that hits your sweet spot. A good combination to start with contains (crunchy) peanut butter, whey protein and oat flour. To drop its sugar content even further, you can reduce the quantity of honey and eliminate the chocolate chips from the recipe. Combine peanut butter and honey properly. (If honey does not work for you there are sugar free syrups you can substitute). Add in some oat flour. Flatten this dough and please place it in a large piece of plastic wrap. Refrigerate in freezer for 20 minutes. While bars are in the freezer, soften chocolate chips in the microwave. I usually prefer heating it for 20 seconds until it is smooth. Remove bars from the freezer and spread the chocolate onto bars.
