The Diabetes Diet

Yes, you can still enjoy mealtime—and not even give up dessert.
In fact, tasty, nutritious dishes—like the ones featured on the pages ahead—
should be an integral part of your plan to prevent or manage the blood-sugar blues. Here, ET offers a few simple guidelines to help you embrace eating.

July/August 2006

By Joanne Gallo

When it comes to diabetes and food, it often seems like an all or nothing proposition. Many diabetics crave and indulge in sugar and carbohydrates, a hallmark sign of the disease, which only makes them sicker, fueling a vicious cycle. On the other hand, those who fear that they “ate” their way into it can become suspicious of every morsel and limit their diets so much that they miss out on vital nutrients.

But neither feast nor famine is a useful strategy if you’re struggling with type 2 diabetes or trying to ward it off. Instead of viewing food as an object of either desire or dread, your dietary philosophy should embrace eating as simple, enjoyable and beneficial.

“Eating wisely is one of your most powerful weapons in the fight against diabetes,” asserts Sandra Woodruff, MS, RD, LD/N, author of The Complete Diabetes Prevention Plan (Avery). What’s more, it doesn’t have to be complicated. “For most people, it’s simply a matter of getting back to basics—replacing overly processed foods with wholesome alternatives.”

Stuffed Chicken Breasts Florentine

4 cups (packed) coarsely chopped fresh spinach
2 tsp crushed garlic
1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (plain or flavored with tomatoes and basil)
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add the spinach and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes over medium heat, or until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and toss in the feta cheese.

2. Cut a deep pocket into the thickest side of each piece of chicken and stuff a quarter of the spinach mixture into each pocket. Close by pressing flesh together and secure with a wooden toothpick if necessary. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken pieces with some of the salt and pepper.

3. Wipe out the skillet, add the olive oil, and preheat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for a couple of minutes on each side or until nicely browned. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve hot.
