So I’ve been trying really hard to stay on this “diabetic diet”. Making sure I don’t take in too much sugar, white rice, and white flour. I’ve also been trying really hard to make sure I exercise and walk for at least 45 minutes. I looked up different diabetic recipe websites to get ideas for my diet and tried to stick to my own meal plan during the past week. It’s been really hard, to be honest. Trying not to eat just whatever is around and making sure I get enough nutrients in every meal is harder than I thought. However, there were plenty of websites and books that I was able to find to get me started.
The first recipe I tried out was steak with grilled veggies.
I first made the sauce.
In a saucepan or a frying pan, caramelize slices of 1/4 of an onion in butter. When then onion starts to turn brown, add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, 1/2 tablespoon of honey or Splenda and 4 tablespoons of water. Bring to a boil and add 2/3 tablespoons of butter. Mix well turn the heat off.
The steak, just sprinkle some salt and leave aside.
For the veggies, chop whatever veggies y0u want and grill on the pan.
Cook your steak with the veggies to medium-well.
Add your sauce to the steak and there you have it!
After this meal I checked my blood glucose level after 1 hour and it was at 83.
Nothing makes you feel better than a low blood glucose level after a meal!
