Diabetes occurs as a result of insulin resistance in cells. Insulin is a hormone that helps regulate glucose levels in the body. Excess blood sugar is caused by a lack of insulin resistance. Because of this insulin resistance, diabetics should consume little or no sugar.

If you have diabetes, it can be hard to resist snacking and sweet cravings. These dishes can help you satisfy your sugar cravings. Remember that everything is healthy in moderation. These meals may be low in sugar, but eating too many can cause your sugar levels to fluctuate. Talking to your doctor about which sugar substitutes work best for your diabetes is the best approach to adding sugary foods to your diet.

If you have diabetes, eating something wonderful when you crave something sweet is not a good idea. Here are some sweets suitable for diabetics.

Oatmeal Bites

If you have diabetes, oats are a great addition to your diet. To make these oatmeal bites, combine oats, mashed ripe bananas and cinnamon and form into small balls. To make them less sticky and easier to store, coat them with coconut shavings.

Chia Seed Pudding

Due to its multiple health benefits, chia pudding is another great addition to your diet. Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants, reduce the risk of heart disease and are rich in nutrients such as protein, calcium, magnesium, iron, fiber, potassium, etc.

Fruit popsicles

If you want to eat something sweet as a diabetic, fruit popsicles are a great way to incorporate fruit into your diet. It’s a great summer snack for people of all ages. Make fruit popsicles by mixing fruit and mixing chopped fruit. Refrigerate the popsicles and enjoy for a few days.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa powder is an excellent addition to any diet. A delicious sweet snack is cocoa mixed with sugar-free nut butter or homemade sugar-free nut butter. Eat it with apple or other fruits to enhance the taste.

Yogurt

Diabetics can enjoy yogurt as a tasty and adaptable snack. You can sweeten your yogurt with stevia, which is often considered a safe alternative for diabetics. You can also add granola, dried fruits, berries, apples and other ingredients to enhance the taste and nutritional content of this snack.

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate, in its natural state, is an excellent snack for diabetics. Dark chocolate is not only suitable for diabetics, but has also been shown to lower blood sugar levels. Dark chocolate is also rich in antioxidants, zinc, magnesium, potassium and other minerals.

Benedetta cookbook author Jasmine Guetta joined the show to share some recipes from her cookbook “Cooking all Giudia.” #newdaynw

Italian cuisine is as varied as the regions of Italy. There is also an age-old but little-known tradition of Jewish cuisine in Italy.

In her new book, “Cooking alla Giudia”, Benedetta Jasmine Guetta pays homage to the culinary heritage of Jews in Italy.

She joined the show to share some recipes from the book!

Concia di zucchini / Fried courgettes in a garlic and herb marinade

From spring, and then until the end of summer, fried zucchini is a staple recipe on the Shabbat menu of all Roman Jewish families. Any type of zucchini will work, but in Rome concia is made with the special Italian zucchini called romaine zucchinie; they are small and light green with thin pale stripes and have beautiful flowers. If you can’t find them, try Persian zucchini or Mexican squash.

This dish of marinated fried zucchini is usually made ahead, to ensure the flavors blend well, and is served as an appetizer or side dish, but it’s also the best snack on a crispy pizza bianca, or sandwiched between two slices of crusty bread. as ossi.

For 4 to 6 people as a starter or side dish

  • 2¼ pounds (1 kg) zucchini
  • Sunflower or peanut oil for frying
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • A handful of parsley or basil leaves, or both, finely chopped (see variations)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup (120 ml) white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. Cut the zucchini lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick (6 mm) strips. People debate the best way to slice zucchini for this dish; some like to cut the slices at an angle to get wide ovals instead of strips. Any shape will do as long as your slices are of equal thickness.
  2. If you’re not in a hurry, let the zucchini slices dry on a paper towel-lined baking sheet for a few hours to lose some of their moisture. If you’re in a hurry, skip straight to frying.
  3. Pour about 2 inches (5 cm) of sunflower or peanut oil into a large saucepan and heat over medium heat until a frying thermometer reads 350°F (180°C). (You can use a deep pan for frying if you prefer, but I find a pan helps contain the oil if it boils too much.) You can test the oil by dropping a small piece of zucchini in it: if it sizzles well but does not bubble too wildly, the oil is ready.
  4. Working in batches to avoid crowding, carefully place a few slices of zucchini in the pan, making sure they all lie flat and don’t overlap. Fry, turning once, for about 5 minutes, until deep golden, almost brown. Transfer the slices to a paper towel lined tray to drain and continue to fry the zucchini in batches.
  5. Place one-third of the fried zucchini in a single layer in a deep rectangular dish. Sprinkle with a little minced garlic, herbs and salt and season with pepper to taste. Repeat with two more layers, finishing with a final sprinkle of minced garlic, herbs, salt and pepper.
  6. Cover the courgettes with the vinegar, cover with olive oil and refrigerate for at least 5 hours and up to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature to serve.
  7. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap, or in an airtight container, for a few days.

Variants

You can swap eggplant for zucchini to make concia di melanzane.

Some concia recipes contain parsley, basil, parsley and basil and mint. Find your favorite combination!

Montini / Marzipan mounds

The shape of these little almond cookies is supposed to remind you of Mount Sinai. They are usually given to family and friends in the Purim gift basket because they travel well and last a long time.

The traditional montini recipe is quite tricky to make, as it requires boiled sugar at the thread stage, which not everyone can master, so I opted for a much easier egg-based version which m was taught by Anna Levi Cogoi. years ago. I promise you that no one will be able to tell the difference between the difficult classic recipe – which you will find in the box – and the modern one.

  • 5¼ cups (600 g) almond flour or finely ground almonds
  • 2 cups (400g) sugar
  • 2 large eggs (100g)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons (40 ml) liqueur, such as cognac or other brandy
  • Chopped candied or dried fruit for decoration (optional)
  • Food coloring (optional; see Variations)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Pour the almond flour into a large bowl. Add sugar, eggs and liqueur. Mix and knead the ingredients with your hands in the bowl until they come together into a soft dough.
  3. Scoop out walnut-sized portions of dough and shape them into small mountain-shaped mounds or slightly flattened balls, if you prefer. Place the small mounds on the prepared molds and decorate them with candied or dried fruit, if desired.
  4. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, for 7 to 10 minutes, until golden on the bottom and dry on the outside. Take out of the oven and let cool down.
  5. Montini keep well in an airtight container or cookie jar for up to a week.

Variants

Montini can be white or colored. For brown montini, add a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder to the batter. For a pink version, add 1 teaspoon of maraschino liqueur and a little red food coloring. If you want to make a multicolored cookie, divide the dough into two or three portions, color each one, then sandwich the dough portions.

You can use this recipe to make nut paste. Replace almond flour with walnut flour and replace liqueur with brewed coffee.

Almond paste, which is basically marzipan, can also be used for stuffed dried fruits. Dates, dried apricots and dried prunes (prunes), filled with marzipan are served, especially in Venice, at Passover and at Tu B’Shvat; nuts can also be sandwiched with marzipan and served as well.

Traditional Montini made with boiled sugar

  • 1¾ cups (200 g) almond flour or finely ground almonds
  • ½ cup minus 1 tablespoon (100 ml) water
  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar, plus more for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • Candied or dried fruit for decoration (optional)
  • Food coloring (optional; see Variations)
  1. Pour the ground almonds into a bowl.
  2. In a small nonstick saucepan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then attach a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan and cook until the sugar syrup reaches 230° F (110°C), wire step. Pour the sugar syrup over the almond flour and mix with a heatproof spoon, then knead with your hands until you have a smooth dough.
  3. Sprinkle the icing sugar on the work surface, turn the almond paste over on the work surface and shape into a flat disk. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 12 hours before using it.

Excerpt from “Cooking alla Giudia” by Benedetta Jasmine Guetta (Artisan Books). Copyright © 2022.

“Cooking alla Giudia” is the ultimate tribute to the wonderfully rich, yet still largely unrecognized, culinary heritage of the Jews of Italy. From fried Roman artichokes (carciofi alla giudia) to Venetian sardes in saor (sweet and sour sardines), orecchiettes from Puglia and Sicilian caponata, some of Italy’s best-known dishes are of Jewish origin. But little is known about the Jewish people of Italy and their culinary traditions. It was the Jews, for example, who taught Italians to eat eggplant, and thus helped inspire the classic eggplant parmigiana and many other local specialties. With a collection of kosher recipes from all regions of Italy, including many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, author Benedetta Jasmine Guetta is on a mission to tell the story of how Jews changed the kitchen Italian cuisine, to preserve these recipes, and to share with home cooks the extraordinary dishes prepared in the Jewish communities of Italy. Throughout the book, menus with regional Italian specialties are highlighted, along with short and helpful guides to Italian cities with Jewish history. The book will show how to incorporate the recipes into your daily meals and holiday traditions.

By Coleman Eakes

Clover Eakes-Lilley is a middle school teacher who loves her husband and enjoys experimenting in the kitchen with different foods.

Her husband, Justis Lilley, works at sea and is only home for two weeks at a time. At home, the couple likes to go out to eat together, but at home they eat a lot of taco salads.

She admits she’s still learning to cook and said ground beef and taco salads are her favorites. She loves how easy it is to just open a package of ground beef, add veggies and sour cream, and call it the day.

“It’s easy and the only thing I have to cook is ground beef,” she laughed. “I finally learned how to make lasagna after my cousin gave me the recipe.”

The two have been married since November 2020. Clover is currently a 7th grade teacher at Neshoba Central Middle School and Justis is working overseas. Work hasn’t stopped the Lilley family from spending as much time as possible doing random things and going to random places. The two regularly do mud and are planning a Grand Canyon roadtrip this summer.

Euro Caesar Salad

Emily in Paris: The Official Cookbookpublished by Weldon Owen
Courtesy of Viacom International Inc.

Emily is sitting in the Café de Flore drinking a glass of wine when she strikes up a conversation with Thomas, a defiant Frenchman sitting at the next table. “Do you think it’s her son or her lover?” Thomas asks after seeing Emily staring at a couple at a nearby table. “Oh, uh, I . . . I was just looking to see if the Caesar salad was really worth 20 euros!” They bet on who is right, with the loser buying the next bottle of wine, and end up at Emily’s apartment.Was the salad worth it?

Makes 4 servings

2 cups cubed coarse country bread, in 1-inch cubes
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 large garlic clove, minced
3 anchovy fillets in olive oil, or more to taste
2 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup neutral oil, such as avocado oil
2 hearts of romaine lettuce, separated into individual leaves
Shaving parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Stack the bread cubes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 3 tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat, then spread the cubes out in a single layer. Cook cubes, turning once or twice, until browned on all sides, about 13 minutes. Let cool.

In a bowl, using a fork, mash the garlic and 1/4 tsp salt until a paste forms. Crush the anchovies into the batter. (You can also use a mortar and pestle to crush garlic, salt, and anchovies.) Whisk egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until blended. Whisking constantly, gradually add the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil then the avocado oil in a thin stream, continuing to whisk until the dressing is smooth. You will only need about half the dressing for the salad. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days and can be used on a second Caesar or a simple green salad.

In a large serving bowl, combine the lettuce and half the croutons. Drizzle with about half the dressing and toss gently but thoroughly. Garnish with the remaining croutons. Using a vegetable peeler, grate the cheese over the salad. Serve immediately.

Chocolate cake

Ashley Park as Mindy Chen in Emily in Paris: The Official Cookbookpublished by Weldon Owen.

“You’re sitting in the coolest café in all of Paris,” Thomas tells Emily the night they meet at the Café de Flore. “At least, historically.” Thomas, a sexy semiotics professor, goes on to tell Emily about Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, who frequented the café after Les Deux Magots – the haunt of Hemingway and Picasso – became “too much bourgeois”. As they sip wine and Thomas enjoys a slice of decadent chocolate cake, their conversation and the evening heat up. These simple yet elegant cake toppers can do the same for your night out.

Makes 6 servings

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for the ramekins
2 tablespoons natural unsweetened
cocoa powder, sifted, plus more for the ramekins
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of fine sea salt
4 large egg yolks
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 large egg whites
Confectioner’s sugar, for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly butter six 3/4 cup ramekins, then sprinkle with cocoa powder, tapping off the excess. Place the ramekins on a small baking sheet.

Mix the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and pour (without touching) barely simmering water into a saucepan. Heat, stirring often, until chocolate and butter melt and mixture is shiny and smooth. Remove from top of water and stir in vanilla and salt. Let cool slightly.

Sherrie Dampeer saw firsthand the impact of weight issues on her mother’s health. And the 56-year-old woman was afraid to be on the same path herself.

“My mom’s health was one of the things that really scared me because looking at her I saw myself,” Dampeer said. “At the time my mum passed away she was on a lot of medication, mostly related to her weight. She was diabetic, had high blood pressure, had developed congestive heart failure and had mobility issues due to being overweight. She ended up in a nursing home because she could no longer take care of herself physically.

When Dampeer’s mother died, it spurred her to action. “It was like a light went out. I started to focus on my own health. But it was hard for Dampeer to find the time to focus on her health. She works for the Department of Social Services of the New York City Human Resources Administration and is also a church minister and volunteer ombudsman.

She used the pandemic for motivation and time

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered Dampeer’s weight loss in two ways. First of all, it scared her since she heard that obese people, like her, were at higher risk of severe COVID-19 and hospitalization.

Second, it gave him more time to develop healthy habits. “My job was closed in March 2020, and instead of staying home and eating, I decided to take care of myself. I live alone. I didn’t want to die alone. I was scared. So, I became more aggressive changing what I ate and walking,” she said.

She finds motivation and responsibility with Start TODAY on Facebook

Dampeer came across the Start TODAY Facebook group at the start of the pandemic. “Stephanie [Mansour] seemed so motivating, and she focused on doing what you can. If you can’t do sit-ups or squats or push-ups, she shows you how to modify, so she makes it feel welcoming,” she said.

Dampeer credits the group for motivating, empowering and encouraging people to exercise and eat better. “Start TODAY has been a huge help in reinforcing my ‘why’ and how crucial it is to not compare myself to others, but only compare myself to myself on my journey,” she said. declared.

I try to make exercise fun, so I’m going to stick with it, so it’s not work.

Dampeer walks every day and aims for at least 10,000 steps. She lives in Brooklyn and says she’s walked almost every bridge in New York. “I walked the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, the Queensboro Bridge and the Williamsburg Bridge. Walking is therapeutic for me. I see different neighborhood areas, and if I see a historic building or something cool, I’ll take a picture and post it at the end of the day. I try to make exercise fun, so I stick to it, so it’s not work,” she said.

She also uses resistance bands to build muscle. “I want to be strong, flexible and independent,” she said.

Chocolate cream cheese filling

To melt chocolate. Melt the chocolate in a sea bath. Place the chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of boiling water. (Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water). Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

Whip the cream. In a medium sized bowl, add the cold cream and using an electric hand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Put aside.

Beat cream cheese. (See note below on cream cheese) In a separate bowl, add the cream cheese and using hand-held electric mixers fitted with the paddle attachment/beater attachment, beat on medium speed until smooth. smooth and creamy consistency. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

Add chocolate and dry ingredients to cream cheese. Sift the powdered icing sugar, cocoa powder and salt into the cream cheese mixture. Pour in the melted chocolate and beat over medium heat until fully incorporated and smooth. It’s a fairly thick mixture but will loosen up with the whipped cream.

Add whipped cream. Add whipped cream to chocolate cream cheese mixture and fold until completely blended.

Fill the cookie base and refrigerate. Remove the cookie crust from the fridge or freezer and pour the chocolate cream cheese filling into it. Smooth the filling all over the base and use an offset spatula to smooth the top.

Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 6 hours, but I recommend leaving it overnight. This gives it the best chance to firm up.
