Homemade Soups for Diabetics

Ditch The Bullion Cube

The first thing that people reach for when they are making a soup base is bouillon cube. This is not a good thing to go with, as it can be full of salt, and even MSG. It’s far better to seek out a different solution, including no sodium chicken or vegetable stock to utilize in your soup creations. You’ll want to ensure that it’s food organic as well, and look carefully at the ingredients for any added sugars or anything that could cause the caloric intake to rise exponentially. You’ll want to stick to this starting point, unless you’re going to use a great deal of water and season soups on your own, without the help of salt that is in the stock.

Vegetables Fill Out Soup

When you’re creating soup, especially for those that have diabetes, make sure that you look into adding many vegetables. Vegetables, legumes, and more can add filler to any meal and without added sugars. You’ll have to be careful to select your mix carefully because not all of the items in your grocery store’s produce department will taste good together. Seeking out solutions that will taste good is tough, but it’s not impossible. Finding a balance is all about what you want the end result to taste like, and what flavor profiles you want to add.

Lean Meats, No Fat

Look into adding meats that are lean, and have no fat. If you’re going to use chicken, for example, avoid adding the skin and try to utilize breast meat. It’s important to not add too much meat that has a high cholesterol or fat content. That could mean that you need to add only leaner cuts, and perhaps skip out on meats together. Be selective with the type of meat you’re going to utilize if you are going to make soups in this category.

When in doubt, look for filling options like chili, stews, and even purees that can be very filling in the end. The process of learning how to make soup for diabetics is not difficult, as much as it is time consuming. You’ll want to avoid canned solutions, or anything that has too much reliance on salt, sugar, and other elements that will not be good for the body. Nutrition matters greatly here, so keep a look out for labels and different additions that you’re going to put into your mix.

Macaroni Shells

Anyway, it’s simple to make, and all it requires you to do is boil macaroni and cut up some cheese. That isn’t so hard to do, is it? I mean you can always buy the box kind with the orange powder or the orange glob of cheese that is full of additives and salt. If you have a lot of it left over from the holidays, you can add hotdogs or polish sausage to it for the kiddo’s lunch entrée.

Ingredients

1 package of elbow macaroni or shells

1 package of shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup of diced Velveeta cheese cubes

1 egg

4 Tbsp butter

½ cup milk

Salt and pepper to taste

Cook macaroni according to package directions. I add salt to the water and 1 Tbsp butter. Don’t over cook the pasta since you are going to bake it in the oven. Cook macaroni until it is al dente which is firm. Over cooked pasta has a higher glycemic index than firm pasta. Drain the pasta but don’t rinse. The salt and butter from the water has seasoned your pasta. Put the macaroni in a casserole dish and add the rest of the butter to the pasta. I sometimes make a cheese sauce with milk and Velveeta cheese in a sauce pan or add the cubed cheese to the macaroni and pour the milk over the pasta. If you make the cheese sauce, pour the milk into a saucepan and add the cheese cubes and cook until melted then pour over macaroni shells. I then add half the package of shredded cheese and mix it into the shells. Afterwards, I beat an egg with a which. Add the egg to the pasta dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the macaroni. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees; cover the casserole dish with a lid or aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and take off the lid and bake for an extra 10-15 minutes until it is bubbly.

Info of Mexican Frittata

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 serrano chiles or 1 large jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 1 poblano chile, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 6 tomatillos, husked and chopped
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cooked black beans (rinsed well and drained, if canned)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar (or Mexican blend) cheese
  • 1/2 cup of homemade or bottled salsa

Preparation

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Whisk the eggs with salt, pepper, and dried oregano in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the garlic, serranos or jalapeno, poblano, and onion and season with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until softened, 7-8 minutes.
  5. Return the heat to medium and add the tomatillos, chipotle chile, black beans, cilantro, and oregano, stirring well to combine. Cook until the tomatillos soften and some of the liquid is absorbed, 5-6 minutes.
  6. Re-whisk the eggs and pour slowly and evenly over the vegetable mixture. Tilt the skillet back and forth gently to help the egg penetrate the filling and set on the bottom and sides.
  7. When the top is almost set, but still a little runny, scatter the cheese over the frittata.
  8. Broil until slightly browned on top, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest 4 minutes.
