Diabetic Diet Plans and Recipes For Vegan Diabetics

Diabetic diet seems to be a very bland term, doesn’t it? The world comes to a halt with the limited amount of options in the diabetic meal plans. Eating all the sudden becomes a problem with so many things on the ‘what-not-to-eat’ dossier.

The good news is that there are many options people tend to ignore while looking to get a taste out of the limited things they can consume. The trick is to experiment with what you can eat and try to get the best out of it.

What you eat also depends largely on the amount of physical activity you are involved in. The lesser you exert yourself, the lesser you should consume high calorie food, high energy levels spike up sugar levels.

Don’ts For a Diabetic Meal Plan

Food items you should avoid while on a diabetic diet are:

• Fatty red meat
• Highly processed food
• Fast food
• Fried food
• Foods rich in saturated fats such as sweets
• Organ meat
• High cholesterol food

In this regard, vegans find the transition to diabetic dieting easier as most of the food items listed are vegetarian options.

However, don’t let the lists break your heart if you are a hardcore carnivore. We will discuss a balanced diet plan that lets you satisfy your taste buds and not spike up the sugar levels.

Balanced Diabetic Meal Plan Listen below is what a regular diabetic diet sample should look like:

• Bread-1 serving (tortillas, whole grain roll or ½ cup pasta)
• Protein-1 serving (3 oz of lean beef, chicken or fish)
• Dairy- 1 serving (low-fat sour cream, cheese, milk)
• Vegetables- 1 serving (1 bowl of salad)
• Fruit-1 serving (tennis ball sized fruits or ½ cup sliced)

Keep in mind that you need some unsaturated fats as well, add some soft margarine or other dressings.

Recipes For Vegan Diabetics

Few delicious diabetic recipes are:

• Broccoli And Cauliflower Stir-Fry
• Asparagus Vinaigrette
• Baked Stuffed Pumpkin

While the complete recipes are not in this article, you may try searching for more recipes or diabetic desserts and snacks to keep your taste buds busy.

Just keep in mind the golden rule for diabetic diet: go easy on carbs, fats, and anything that gives you more energy than you need.
