Diabetes-Hurting Traditional Snacks vs Our Diabetes-Healing Versions
Typical Beef Chili
345 calories, 7g fat, 7g fiber
Lean, Mean Three-Bean Bison Chili
178 calories, 7 g fat, 4 g fiber
We substitute lean ground Bison (buffalo) or ground turkey breast. This lean protein and three varieties of glucose-lowering beans provide less saturated, better-quality protein, and much more diabetes-healing fiber. Plus you’ll save close to 175 calories
Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Sauce
1170 calories, 85g fat, 3g fiber
Spicy Chicken “Fings” with Blue Cheese Dip
206 calories, 3.9g fat, 1.9 fiber
Swap the artery-clogging Buffalo wings and full-fat blue cheese dressing for broiled spicy BBQ chicken “fings” make from skinless chicken breast “fingers” and our low-fat yogurt blue cheese. Saves a whopping 1,000 calories and over 80 grams of fat!
Potato Chips with Onion Dip
(2 oz) 520 calories, 39g fat, 2g fiber
Caramelized Onion Dip & Sweet Potato Chips
110 calories, 6g fat, 2g fiber
The standard potato chips with onion dip deliver a load of greasy, salty, fried carbs and trans-fat. Instead, you can help heal your diabetes (and avoid the weight gain) by serving our version of homemade crispy-baked sweet potato chips with caramelized real onion dip made with low-fat yogurt and blended cottage cheese (instead of high-calorie sour cream). The sweet potato chips provide an extra boot of diabetes-healing fiber.
Nachos with Ground Beef and Sour Cream
(8 oz.) 1560 calories, 86g fat, 10g fiber
Diabetes Healing “Macho Nachos”
396 calories, 11g fat, 15g fiber
The standard nachos snack is a calorie bomb that can easily increase your weight and make your diabetes and other blood sugar problems worse. Our Diabetes Healing version has less than half the calories and more than twice the fiber, yet their just as hearty and satisfying.
