Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
PreDiabetes Centers, the nation’s top provider of prediabetes treatment, released a menu of nutritious pizza recipes to help clients and online readers send out summer healthfully and scrumptiously this Labor Day. PreDiabetes Concierge Chef Han Ashley developed variations of Roasted Veggie Pizza, which are available on the Company’s website.
The PreDiabetes Centers Roasted Veggie Pizza recipe is made with gluten-free, whole grain pizza dough and features a cheese substitute–ideal for people who are lactose intolerant or following a heart-smart diet. Packed with vegetables including tomatoes, olives and asparagus, the Roasted Veggie Pizza allows people to stick to a nutrient-rich diet while still enjoying indulgent, easy-to-nosh party food.
Ashley also concocted a recipe for Sangria Smoothie to pair with the pizza.
“The Sangria Smoothie is packed with nutritious, filling ingredients. It’s great for one of those nights when you want to drink your dinner!” said Ashley, as the smoothie is chock-full of fruits and vegetables, making it a hearty liquid meal.
The Sangria Smoothie cocktail includes red wine which contains antioxidants that may help prevent heart disease by increasing levels of “good” HDL cholesterol and protecting against artery damage. Resveratrol, a type of antioxidant found in red wine, has strong health benefits, as research has found it may prevent damage to blood vessels, reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol and prevent blood clots. Red wine is an optional ingredient in the recipe; readers have the option of using organic grape, pomegranate or blueberry juice in place of wine.
The Sangria Smoothie also features pineapple juice, which contains the anti-inflammatory antioxidant bromelain; spinach, a vegetable packed with potassium and can even help improve blood glucose control in diabetics; anthocyanin-rich blueberries, which can boost heart health; and lime, a good source of vitamin C and phytochemicals that have anti-cancer properties.
Whip up the PreDiabetes Centers Labor Day Roasted Veggie Pizza and Sangria Smoothie and make your meal simple this holiday weekend!
