Week 3 – Diabetic Friendly

In the next part of our series we are looking at diabetic friendly foods. A diabetic diet is mainly low sugar and healthy.

Foods recommenced for Diabetics include: Salmon, Sardines, Herring, Anchovies, and Mackerel, Leafy greens, Avocados, Eggs, Chia seeds, Beans, Greek yogurt, Nuts, Broccoli, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Flaxseed, Apple Cider Vinegar, Strawberries, Garlic, Squash

Granola is a simple thing to make, and making your own means you can decide on your own flavours and you can moderate the sugar content, we used a maple syrup blended with a carob syrup to really push down the sugar content.

One pan fish dishes make for simple quick midweek meals, this healthy pan sheet recipe is easily customisable to use vegetables you like. Gremolata is a refreshing sauce to accompany any fish, don’t be afraid of the anchovies, not only are they excellent nutrition, they add flavour but not a fish flavour. Trust us, they are amazing.

Pannacotta is an Italian dessert tradionally made with cream and vanilla, this recipe replaces the cream with Greek Yoghurt, the addition of blackcurrant adds sweetness and the tea gives a deeply complex flavour worthy of any dinner party table. We used stevia sweetener instead of sugar to moderate the sugar content even more.
