Join Toby as she prepares one of our favorite healthy dishes. Lemon Garlic Salmon has only five easy ingredients, and can be whipped up in only a few minutes. And, by the way, it's delicious. It's a frequent item on our weekly menu for a good reason.
In Diabetes Meal Planning and Nutrition for Dummies Toby listed her top 10 diabetes "power foods", food we should try and have regularly. In this video she reveals three of those powerful ten that share a couple of very important things in common. Watch this clip and see if you know what these foods share, and see if you can find a way to have them more often.
Need a little comforting? How about a comfort food with an ingredient that some people with diabetes think is forbidden- pasta. This recipe on loan from Brenda Ponichtera, from her 2009 book Quick & Healthy, Volume II (Small Steps Press) has a 1 1/2 cup serving size, with pasta, ringing the carbohydrate bell at only 25 grams. That's modest enough that we've included a dinner roll and a dessert in the menu this week. Join Toby as she prepares this quick and health comfort dish.
