    Easy, practical advice for helping yourself, a diabetic family member, or friend through the maze of Holiday Foods, Celebrations, Office Parties, and Holiday Potlucks!



    The diabetic diet is a cause for concern for many people with the disease.

    The holidays bring about a whole host of dietary temptations with their large, carbohydrate-rich meals and decadent desserts. Though a little indulgence is tolerable during the holidays, it is possible to enjoy a delicious meal as a diabetic without breaking your diet.
    With a plan in mind, you can create a delicious diabetic-friendly bounty for yourself or a diabetic holiday meal guest.

    Here are some helpful tips for diabetic holiday cooking.

    It is best to anticipate the need for snacking by serving fresh fruit, shelled nuts or a vegetable and cheese tray prior to the meal. Diabetics may not be able to wait until the bird has been carved to fight off dropping blood sugar.
    You may wish to time your serving with a diabetic guest’s usual meal time, but it is not necessary.
    If you are hosting a holiday meal as a non-diabetic, ask your guests if there are specific snacks or foods that they may wish to enjoy during the day.
    Grains are an important part of the diabetic diet. Instead of only serving carbohydrate-heavy starches like potatoes, you may include a pilaf made from a whole grain such as barley or quinoa. These sides are so tasty that you might even win over a few of your non-diabetic guests and family members.
    A selection of vegetables is great for diabetics. Your family may enjoy candied yams and green bean casserole, but consider making simple steamed green beans with almond slivers or even a green salad. These are great options for diabetic diners, and a delicious addition to a holiday meal.
    Offer your guests sugar-free beverage options. A simple spritzer made from seltzer water mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of lime is a festive holiday beverage that diabetic diners can enjoy without breaking their diets.
    Desserts made with artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, have a reduced carbohydrate content and are suitable for diabetics. Traditional pumpkin and apple pies have a lower sugar content than fruit or pecan pies, so these are the best candidates for converting to sugar-free desserts.
    If necessary, offer both diabetic and non-diabetic dessert options. Your guests may be surprised to learn that they do not notice the difference.
    Try to limit the fat you add to food during cooking. Butter, oil, cream and cheese are fine in moderation, but low-fat options are much better for diabetic diners. Evaporated skim milk has the same consistency as cream, but lacks the heavy fat content. If a recipe calls for cream, consider making a substitution.
    Offer full and low-fat condiment options at the table so that all of your dinner guests are free to make their own choices and control their portions.

    Happy December!
    Paula, Mia, Andi... thanks a lot for you informations! I really appreciate your way to keep the food intersting despite diet restrictions.

    For the New Year Event we like to prepare finger food or at least food that can be taken in small portions. In this way it's easier for everybody to take what he like/need.
    Fingerfood, spreads and small cups are great for this.
    I bought in a furniture store (IKEA) small and very cheap glass cups, intended to be used for candels, but they suits perfect for food and can be placed in the oven. Just small portions.
    I bought 3 different sizes, the smallest contains perhaps 2 tablespoons liquid. Eggplant Cream With Feta Pesto
    The biggest about 1/2 cup Blackberry Cobblers Cups and Blackberry Upside-Down Cake

    Good morning sweet Jollies! It's a pleasure coming here after a morning of distractions...whew! And we're off flying through the fast, but wonderful, holiday season!

    Bonnie! wave.gif It's so terrific to see you! I am so glad to see you here, ol' friend....we are ready and waiting to enjoy lots of food together, are we not?

    awalde, I just love those glasses! (candle) how perfect for entertaining, and I wish I had them! We have an IKEA about 20 miles away, I wish they sold online.

    My first recipe to make will be:

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm ready to join in with some healthy things since I have been doing nothing but making cakes, cookies, etc. and of course, none are diabetic. Fortunately, I have been distributing them among some potlucks, parties and neighbors to get them out of my house. Good thing sweets aren't my vise because I have to keep some of these delectable goodies around for my DH who doesn't seem to gain even a pound or have to worry about his sugar.


    I am tagging Diva Diabetic's Black Bean Salad With Chili Lime Dressing (recipe no. 429856) by Diva Diabetic!


    I am excited to participate with all of you again this month!!!!

    You are so funny -- I just caught the name of the dish -- I am a little slow this morning! I'm hoping they are crabby and not crappy -- I'm sure they will be delish!!! icon_lol.gif

    Oh my! Nancy ~ you have really, truly, outdone yourself! Wow, I wish I was a fly on your wall, I bet you were like a tornado baking and baking like you did. That Diva Diabetic's Black Bean Salad With Chili Lime Dressing by Diva sounds so wonderful and delightful! Ironically, I just put on some black beans to soak, I was going to make a re-fried black bean for dinner tonight to go along with some healthy (well, mostly) enchiladas, but now I am thinking of this. Shoot, I don't have a lime though icon_sad.gif

    Will get you marked down ~ so glad you were able to join us!

    wave.gif Andy and all, I've been wanting to get more involved with this forum as I think it's healthy cooking and not just for diabetics. With my Mom and 3 of my 4 sisters being diabetic it makes a lot of since for me to practice it too.
