Diabetic Lunch Ideas

Hey Folks,

Awesome post below on one “Chicken Avocado Salad”  written by DiabetesIreland . I found this on the Diabetes.ie and I’m reprinting the whole thing here for your convenience.

Avocado is high in monunsaturated fats which can help to protect your heart and it also count towards 1 of your 5 a day. Try to include, as here, at least 2-3 portions of your 5 a day at lunchtime.

With diabetes you should include a source of carbohydrate with this recipe. If you were to have 2 slices of wholegrain bread it would provide an additional 30g of carbohydrate.

Ingredients – Serves 4 Adults

2 ripe avocados, peeled and stones removed 
390g/14 oz of skinless and boneless chicken fillets, around 3 fillets
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 handful of chopped fresh parsley
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Cook the chicken under a grill or non-stick pan
While that’s cooking, chop the avocados into small cubes
Mix the olive oil and pepper together with a fork
Remove the chicken and cut into strips
Serve in a salad bowl with the avocado
Drizzle the oil on top and garnish with the parsley according to taste

NB – bread or potatoes will add to the total carbohydrate of your meal and so will affect blood glucose readings.

Did anyone else out there have tried this recipe? Share your results with me in the comments below.
