Turkey Day can feel more like D-Day for someone with diabetes or a weight problem. The traditional Thanksgiving menu is a “carb-fest” with baked goods, mashed potatoes, stuffing, plus all those sweet pies, cakes, cookies, and goodies. It's no wonder the average adult consumes nearly 5,000 calories on Thanksgiving Day – most of them refined carbohydrates that cause big trouble for people trying to manage their blood sugar.
To save the day, the popular website MyHealingKitchen.com has created a delicious Diabetes-Friendly Thanksgiving Menu at http://myhealingkitchen.com/medical-conditions/diabetes/diabetes-friendly-thanksgiving-recipes/ that is sure to satisfy the heartiest appetite and the most health-conscious eaters.
Under the guidance of the website’s Food Editor Jim Healthy and Dr. Stefan Ripich, ND, CNP, co-authors of The 30-Day Diabetes Cure, the Thanksgiving menu features festive, diabetes-friendly appetizers, side dishes, and scrumptious desserts that are especially low in calories, sugar, and refined carbs. The entire meal is nutritionally designed and balanced to keep blood sugar levels stable and low – and waistlines slim.
Featured on this year’s menu are: Farmers Market Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette … Kale and Roasted Winter Squash with Pecans … a free-range, organically-raised, roasted Heritage turkey with Savory Mushroom Gravy … and for dessert, classic Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream accompanied by a decadent Butternut Squash Cheesecake (one bite will make you think, “I shouldn’t,” but Jim Healthy and Dr. Ripich assure you that’s “It’s fine!”).
