Recipe Roundup: 5 Dinner Ideas Your Family Will Also Enjoy

For some people with diabetes, it’s extra work to prepare a blood-sugar-friendly meal for the entire family. You, your partner, and your kids may have different food preferences, so you have to serve food that everyone can appreciate. If you’re running out of options, here’s a variety of dinner ideas to try.

Spicy Green Beans and Shrimp Sheet Pan Meal

Spicy Green Beans and Shrimp Sheet Pan Meal

This recipe has two plus points: its healthy ingredients and its no-brainer cooking method. It uses shrimp and green beans, providing an excellent source of protein and packed with other nutrients as well. To cook, season both, toss them on the sheet pan, and place them in the oven as suggested. You only need about 20 minutes to prepare this seafood meal, and since it’s roasted, it also means less to clean up.

Grain-Free Dinner Rolls

Grain-Free Dinner Rolls

Not a fan of bread products that use a lot of mozzarella? Try out this grain-free dinner roll made from the right combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and some binding helpers. And if you run out of yeast in your kitchen, don’t worry. This recipe uses baking powder, vinegar, and surprisingly, whipped egg white, the secret ingredient to the perfect rise. Serve this with your favorite protein and some greens for a well-balanced meal.

Pork Chili Verde

Pork Chili Verde

Given that a bit of fruity coriander seed is the only spice used in this recipe, and all the rest of its flavor comes from the vegetables, you can say this mouth-watering dish is pretty straightforward. It takes 3 hours to prepare, but if you’re making it in bulk and freezing some for other days, then it’s worth it. Serve this on cauliflower rice to keep your meal low-carb.

Bacon Cheddar Keto Carbonara with Spaghetti Squash

Bacon Cheddar Keto Carbonara with Spaghetti Squash

This recipe uses creative alternatives to the traditional carbonara we know: spaghetti squash instead of pasta, eggs instead of cream for the sauce, and aged cheddar instead of Parmesan. Serve it with seasoned steak or chicken thighs, and you have a filling and delectable dinner with less than 10 g of carbs.

Low Carb Beer Batter Fish

Low-Carb Beer Batter Fish

It’s understandable to crave crispy, deep-fried dishes once in a while. When you’re is in this mode, you can try this easy-to-prepare beer batter fish. If you’re serving this to minors, use sparkling water instead of beer. You can use the leftover batter for making fried zucchini (other vegetables work too) as a side dish. Do use virgin coconut oil for frying as it’s a healthier option.

Homemade Keto Alfredo Sauce Recipe

This content originally appeared on Low Carb Yum. Republished with permission.

If you’ve never made your own white pasta sauce, you’ll be surprised how easy it is. You can make a simple cream sauce with butter, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and cream cheese. Those are the four basic ingredients I use to make homemade keto Alfredo sauce.

I like to add a few more ingredients to mine to enhance the flavor. For me, garlic is one of the best seasonings ever so I add in a few freshly minced cloves. I also add in a few shakes of fresh ground black pepper.

There’s very little preparation needed to make homemade sauce. And, it’s much better to make it yourself because commercially prepared ones always contain unnecessary ingredients that up the carbs.

Recipe Roundup: 5 Easy and Healthy Soups

Adding vegetables to your soup is one of the great ways to achieve your daily vegetable requirement of 1 to 3 cups. It just doesn’t give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs; it also makes the soup tastier for your palate. Here are some easy recipes from nutritionists and low-carb bloggers that will encourage you to sip (or slurp) more soup from your bowl:

Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup

Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup

Just put all the ingredients of this recipe in a pressure cooker for five minutes, and you have a soup that’s both delicious and filling. It is so quick and simple to prepare that Liz MacDowell at Meat Free Keto considers this as her go-to food when she’s under the weather. It is also adaptable, so you can substitute the vegetables with anything you have in your fridge. It contains only 5.6 g net carbs, a good number to number to deal with, especially when you’re sick, and you’re doubling your effort to manage your blood sugar.

Lentil and Spinach soup

Lentil and Spinach Soup

Lentils are rich in protein, fiber, and other nutrients — and quite affordable, too! Now, if you add the superfood spinach to any lentil dish, like this soup, you’re giving your body a grand treat. While you need about 40 minutes to prepare this recipe from Catherine Saxelby of Food Watch, it includes 20 minutes of simmering time. Use that time to make other dishes for your meal, do some kitchen chores, or check your diabetes supplies.

Asian Chicken Noodle Vegetable Soup

Asian Chicken Noodle Vegetable Soup

Got some leftover grilled chicken? Use it for this vegetable soup along with mushroom, broccoli, colorful bell pepper, and other seasonings. This meal-in-one recipe has everything you need to get through to the next meal, but if the carbs are causing a sugar spike, we recommend replacing the wheat-flour noodles with shirataki noodles or with more vegetables. Andrea Holwegner at Health Stand says this is super easy to prepare and even provides a make-ahead method for people on the go.

Pork Belly Ramen with Veggie Noodles

If you’re looking for another veggie-packed soup, here’s another one from Jen Fisch at Keto in the City. Instead of traditional noodles, she uses zucchini or summer squash noodles for this recipe. The soft-cooked egg, along with your toppings of choice, adds more flavor to the soup. Make it Pho-tasting with chopped fresh mint, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime. Craving for a traditional ramen taste? Add bean sprouts, dried seaweed strips, and corn.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Blend roasted broccoli and garlic with warm broth, coconut milk, and seasonings, and you’re up for some delicious soup. At 7.9 g net carbs, this recipe’s roasty flavor makes your meal more appealing, and preparing it in a blender means you can customize the texture (blend longer to make it smoother for the picky eaters). Cristina Maria Curp at The Castaway Kitchen recommends garnishing it with roasted pine nuts and/or any preferred herbs or microgreens for an additional health boost.

Diabetes Isn’t “One Size Fits All”

I love the diabetes online community for everything that it offers: advice in times of need, hope in times of despair, helpful anecdotes and inspiring stories, and friendships formed across time zones and many miles.

One of the things that the diabetes online community sometimes does, though, is to try and prescribe how everyone with diabetes should live. One day, it’s the Dr. Bernstein diet, the next, it’s high-carb, low-fat. The Mastering Diabetes (mostly) fruit diet is so popular now that their book has even made the NYTimes Bestsellers list. People are jumping on diet and exercise bandwagons before they figure out what they truly need (and want!) in terms of their diabetes management, and what it should look like, day-to-day.

Parents are often left feeling guilty if they can’t “hack” their child’s insulin pump, and individuals with diabetes feel bad when they don’t (or can’t?) do CrossFit or maintain a super low-carb lifestyle. A once seemingly supportive community now raises an eyebrow if they spot you eyeing over a cookie during a meet-up group, or (god forbid) a sugar-sweetened beverage. But I’m here to say one thing: diabetes isn’t a “one size fits all” disease.

You are not a “bad diabetic” if you don’t have a DIY looping system, or if you don’t want to sit down and try to figure it out. You’re fine just the way you are if MDI or insulin pens work better for you, if you dislike skin adhesives, or feel claustrophobic always having something attached to you.

It’s okay if you spike every morning, without fail, due to dawn phenomenon, and if you don’t ever post your CGM graphs to social media. It’s okay if you don’t have a CGM (really, it’s fine). Or if you don’t take an SGLT2-inhibitor off-label. Or even want to try. There’s no perfect low snack. There’s no perfect meal.

Figure out what your body needs, and honor that. It’s okay if you don’t want to eat low-carb, high-carb, or in-between. Or if you’ve lived with type 1 for 15 years, enjoy your weekly ice cream treat, and don’t want to give it up. Figure out what you need and want, and do that. 

It’s okay if you don’t own a Myabetic bag, or can’t afford one, or think they’re ugly. It’s alright if you’ve never been to diabetes camp or don’t want to go. It’s alright if you don’t want to jump all into advocacy and chant, and rally, and cheer. It’s okay if self-care for you is sitting in a quiet room, and coming to a place of acceptance.

It’s okay if you don’t join any Facebook diabetes support groups, or seek out diabuddies in real life. It’s okay if diabetes is only a very small part of your life. It’s okay if it’s your whole life.

It’s okay if you don’t like going to the endocrinologist, or have to force yourself to see your eye doctor. It’s okay if you don’t like talking about your diabetes with others. Diabetes is not one size fits all.

It’s okay if sometimes you’re feeling overwhelmed, over-stimulated, and need to turn inwards, for yourself and rest sometimes.

There is no perfect way to (micro)manage, eat, exercise, handle stress, socialize (or not!), dose, count, or bolus. There is only the way that will work for you and your body. Find what works for you, and embrace that. 

Have you ever been pressured to manage your diabetes a certain way? Eat a certain diet? Exercise in a specific way? How did you deal with the pressure? Share this post and comment below; we would love to hear your stories!

Keto Pecan Pie Cookies

Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter is one of my favorites, so I knew I had to bake with it quickly before I ate the whole jar. These cookies semi-defeated the purpose since they are equally as addicting (I mean, how can a cookie not be with a giant glob of this nut butter in it!?), but the good news is I had one and the rest are in my freezer. I feel like these would be a great Thanksgiving dessert, but I’m all for pecan pie year-round!

Equipment

  • oven
  • Microwave

Ingredients

  • 10 tbsp Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter
  • 4 tbsp salted butter softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated Swerve
  • 1 tsp liquid monk fruit juice concentrate
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg large
  • 6 tbsp lupin flour
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • First we'll make the pecan pie centers. I highly recommend having frozen centers before you stuff them into the cookies, or else you might get a bit of a nut butter mess. To get frozen centers, scoop out 12 spoonfuls of refrigerated Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter onto a cutting board covered in wax paper and freeze overnight. (I used 10 tbsp of nut butter total for my 12 centers, so slightly less than 1 tbsp per cookie).
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, vanilla and sweeteners.
  • Mix in the salt, egg, lupin flour, almond flour, and baking soda until a dough forms.
  • On a cookie sheet, form 12 discs of cookie dough and make a "thumbprint" in each center. This is where your filling will go, so it should roughly match the size of your pecan pie centers.
  • Bake the cookies for 5 minutes at 350 and then remove from oven.
  • Remove the frozen pecan pie centers from the freezer and stuff them inside each thumbprint.
  • Return to oven for about 11 minutes or until done.
  • Allow cookies to cool fully before removing from cookie sheet.
  • Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave, stir, and use an icing bag to drizzle chocolate over the cookies.
