Toby Recommends Chicken Pasta Stew
Need a little comforting? How about a comfort food with an ingredient that some people with diabetes think is forbidden- pasta. This recipe on loan from Brenda Ponichtera, from her 2009 book Quick & Healthy, Volume II (Small Steps Press) has a 1 1/2 cup serving size, with pasta, ringing the carbohydrate bell at only 25 grams. That’s modest enough that we’ve included a dinner roll and a dessert in the menu this week. Join Toby as she prepares this quick and health comfort dish.
Toby’s Healthier Egg Muffins
Join Toby as she prepares her recipe for this fast food favorite, minus the paper bag. Eggs are a fabulous source of high quality protein, sometimes called the perfect protein based upon the bioavailability of nine “essential” amino acids (amino acids that must come from food sources). You can find this recipe in Toby’s book, Diabetes Meal Planning and Nutrition for Dummies (John Wiley & Sons, 2013).
It can hardly get any simpler than wrapping a beet in foil, and baking it for an hour. But, what a reward. Join Toby as she prepares this brightly colored vegetable for dinner this week.
Apple and Walnut Salad
Join Toby on this video as she prepares this simple and easy salad that’s perfect for apple picking time. “Apple and Walnut Salad” is courtesy of fellow Registered Dietitians Meri Raffetto and Wendy Jo Peterson, and is from their new book Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Dummies (2012, John Wiley and Sons). Tart, sweet and capped with the unmatched flavor of toasted walnuts, this dish will help you remember why Fall is your favorite season.
Roasted Carrots with Rosemary
