is a common illness these days with many people of
all ages being diagnosed. Therefore many of us have
someone we know with diabetes. To some people having
a diabetic over for a meal is rather daunting. Well
this need not be. As long as you remember that natural
is better and sugar can be replaced. There is a wealth
of substitute sugars on the market world wide. These
may be used in dessert cooking with wonderful results.
But if you are not sure there is a Diabetic Council
in almost all countries, so dont be afraid to
call them for a diet brochure. With most Diabetic
councils these brochures are free or advice can be
given over the phone.
substitutes are natural fruit juices. For example,
in salads use a fruit juice rather than prepared salads
dressings. Apricot nectar is great in a coleslaw.
Orange juice is wonderful with grated carrot and cheese
with a few raisins (this is a salad on its own and
it very tasty and colourful on the table).
for diabetics choose the fresh fruit and vegetable
recipes with a moderate portion of meat. There are
only three things to remember, Fresh, Low Fat and
Low Sugar. Keep this in mind and you can't go wrong.
A fresh fruit platter is a great dessert.
A lot of
people who know diabetics and who have catered for
them, have readjusted their cooking and eating styles
to the same type of diet. It is healthier, very nutritious
and very tasty. The only difference between what people
are normally used to and what a diabetic can eat is
the amount of sugar used. Nearly all fruit and vegetables
have a natural supply of sugars in them, sufficient
to cater to any bodies needs. Although some do require
a little extra sugar which can be gained from desserts
or the odd treat.
what ailments people may have cooking and eating need
never be bland or boring. With the many nations we
have in our world and the variety of foods it is easy
to find cheap easy and healthy alternatives.
