    Welcome to our February Special in the Diabetic Cooking Forum!

    Being the month of Valentine's, this month's topic shall be dedicated to our hearts!


    One of the main issues that often go along with diabetes is the so called diabetic heart disease. This term refers to different kinds of heart diseases that can be caused or worsened by diabetes.
    For more information about what kinds of heart disease can occur, you might be interested in reading this:
    http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/dhd/

    Our thread now is about what we can do. Valentine's is the month of hearts and lovers, so what better than giving some love to our own hearts or those of our diabetic loved ones?

    Living diabetes friendly and heart healthy is easy and delicious.
    Think of all kinds of berries which are low in sugar but high in heart protecting antioxidants, healthy yummy fats like salmon, flax seed oil, olive oil, good proteins from lean meat, fish and all kinds of legumes, low-carb vegetables and greens and hearty full grains like brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, and diabetes friendly whole grain bread like rye sourdough bread.

    Come share your yummy heart healthy and diabetes friendly recipes with us for the love of it!
    Maybe share impressions of the walk you take after your meal, too - enjoying the winter air and the first hint of spring raising its head.

    Playing is easy:
    1) Tag ANY recipe from this site that you consider heart healthy and diabetes friendly - or tweak it so it becomes more heart healthy and diabetes friendly and tell us how you did it.

    2) Post a reply to this thread stating which recipe you are preparing, and include the recipe name, recipe number, posting chefs name.
    i.e. = Andi icon_arrow.gif Paula's Recipe xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx

    3) Make the recipe within the month time period, but we will keep the thread open a couple of days beyond the end of the month in case you want to finish a last minute recipe up.

    4) Post your review to the recipe page, and picture if you have taken one.

    5) Report back to this thread that you have made and reviewed the recipe you tagged, including the recipe name, recipe number, posting chefs name. Post the photo too, as we love seeing your photos and this just makes adds to the fun.
    i.e. = Andi has completed: Paula's Recipe xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxxx

    Please come and join the fun of learning and experiencing a healthy lifestyle together!

    Hi Paula wave.gif
    So good to have you back icon_smile.gif Hope you could recover a little.
    I've been cut off because a thunderstorm killed my entire phone line last week, and as here was carnival, absolutely nobody was available icon_confused.gif
    Now I'm finally back and trying to catch up with everything!

    Oooh, sweetie, I missed you, too! You have had a very vivid time as it seems - hope you're doing really really good now!
    Germany is treating me with cold but sunny winter weather (cold for our region, not compared to cold in your part of the world LOL) and a gazillion emails to work through after being offline for one week icon_lol.gif
    Have to find some really good recipes now after that withdrawl!

    This has been a fav for a while: Grilled Moroccan Chicken

    Made per the recipe, and served on Israeli couscous - a blend I get at Trader Joes. Has baby garbanzos, lentils, etc. and added celery, onion, and carrots - to give me a larger serving without going over my carb budget. With DH's Perfect Garden Salad. A delicious, and heart-healthy dinner:

    Andi, I am so happy to see you. I disappeared to Atlanta on Wednesday and got home last night. The weather can't make up it's mind if it's spring or winter. I am having a serious allergy attack. I have a couple of recipes to review and will post them later.

    Back with another. We've enjoyed Chicken Piccata for years. Recently I started omitting the butter, to reduce calories and fat - still delicious and weeknight-fast. Served with half potato, stuffed with kale, and topped with roasted red pepper and cheese - carnivore DH walked into the kitchen and stopped in his tracks "Is that dinner? I don't need anything else!". And within my carb budget - though I'd have liked more. And finally DH's Perfect Garden Salad (if you're thinking you've seen this before, you're probably right. We have this salad almost every night, and I photograph it often in the background.)
