Myths About Prepared Veggies

How much do you really know about canned and frozen vegetables? They’re as tasty and nutritious as fresh, plus they are more convenient, more affordable and offer more variety year-round. Get the facts!

Myth: Fresh is best.

Fact: Not necessarily. Because fresh fruits and vegetables may not be delivered to stores or purchased by consumers for days after being picked, they may lose some of their flavor and nutritional value. Frozen and canned foods are processed within hours of harvest, which enables their flavor and nutritional value to be preserved far longer than fresh foods. In fact, a study conducted by the University of Massachusetts found that recipes using canned ingredients are similar in nutritional and taste value to those made with fresh or frozen items.

Myth: Prepared vegetables are not as nutritious as fresh.

Fact: Heat treatment, such as that used in canning corn, actually increases the nutritional value of some vegetables. One example: The absorption of lutein, an anti-oxidant found in corn, is enhanced by heat from canning.

Myth: Canned vegetables have too much sodium.

Fact: Canned vegetables are not a significant source of sodium in the average American’s diet. In fact, canned vegetables add less than one percent of sodium to overall consumption. Plus, most of the sodium is in the liquid. Draining vegetables reduces the sodium by 36%; rinsing cuts it by 41%. Still concerned? Choose “no salt added” options.

Myth: Prepared vegetables contain bacteria or pesticide residues.

Fact: Pesticide residues are virtually never present in canned or frozen foods. Washing, peeling and other steps required to prepare these foods significantly reduce any pesticide residues that may have been present on raw crops. The heat used during the canning process prevents the growth of microorganisms that can lead to illness.

Holiday Party Survival Guide

12_20_Dec_Newsletter_02

From office parties to family gatherings, the winter holidays bring about so many opportunities to socialize.
So, it can be challenging to stick to your healthy intentions while still enjoying the festivities, but by following these tips, we’ll show you how to have your cake (or holiday pie) and eat it, too.

1. Don’t go hungry!

Here’s the logic: you know there will be tempting foods at the party, so you barely eat all day to make up for the calories you know you are going to consume that night. However, when you find yourself in front of a  buffet of delicious food, it is much easier to go overboard if you are hungry. Instead, try to fit in a 100 calorie snack with fiber and protein (for example, a small handful of nuts, ½ cup plain non -fat Greek yogurt w ith 1 serving of fruit, or a hard-boiled egg spread over a rice cake) 1-2 hours before you leave for the party.

 2. Bring something healthy with you.

This may not work for all parties, but if you have the option of bringing a dish with you, take advantage of it. Salads, vegetable platters with low-fat
dips, a fruit tray, or even a lightened-up dessert are all excellent options. Not only will you be contributing to the party, but you will know that there is at least one healthy option that you can choose to help you stay on track.

 3. Choose the smallest plate possible.

If only large plates are available, see if there is a cocktail napkin you can use instead. We eat with our eyes, and we tend to prefer eating off of very full
plates. The smaller the plate, the less food we need to make it look full. It also forces you to choose the items that you want to try the most, which leads us to Tip #4.

4. Don’t just count calories–make your calories count.

Remind yourself that you don’t need to eat everything on the buffet or take more than one bite if you decide you don’t care for something. Maybe that means that someone with a sweet tooth enjoys that slice of pie but chooses not to load up on chips and dip; perhaps someone passes on the store-bought cookies that they can buy any time of year, and opts for the pumpkin roll that Aunt Mae only makes during the holidays. Know what foods are worth it to you, savor them, and let others at the party enjoy the rest.

 5. Step away from the food.

Have you noticed that the food area at a party can get pretty crowded? Next time you’re at a social event, prepare your plate of treats and then migrate to the opposite side of the room to socialize. This will help cut down on mindless snacking, as it takes much more effort and thought to get seconds when the food is farther away.

 6. Sip on water.

Water can help at holiday parties in several ways. First, it can be easy to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying hydrated will prevent you from feeling hungrier than you truly are. Second, water will take up space in your stomach, which will make you feel fuller and less likely to overeat in a short  period of time. Lastly, if you happen to be eating foods that are saltier than usual, drinking more water will actually lessen the bloating that can be  associated with eating those foods.

 7. If you do fall off the horse, get right back on.

Everyone overeats sometimes, and that’s ok. It does not mean your journey toward a healthier life is ruined, or that you should give up even trying. As author Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Try your hardest, and if it doesn’t work out as you had hoped, wake up the next day, and try again.

purch and safety

  • Look for a crock pot with a removable liner for easier prepping and clean up
  • For food safety, it is best to cook on HIGH for the first hour to quickly bring the temperature up to 140ºF. Then turn the dial to LOW and finish cooking. Some crock pots are programmable and can be set to do this.
  • One hour on HIGH is equal to two hours on LOW.
  • Remove cooked food from the crock pot before you refrigerate. The liner is made of thick material and the food cannot cool down quickly enough to prevent the growth of bacteria.

general

  • Only fill the crock pot one half to two thirds full. Too full will prevent foods from cooking properly, too low will cause foods to cook too quickly!
  • Remove skin from poultry, and trim excess fat from meats. Fats will melt with long cooking times, and will add an unpleasant texture, not to mention excess calories, to the finished dish.
  • You can thicken juices and concentrate flavors by removing the lid and cooking on HIGH for the last half hour of cooking time.
  • Most meats require 8 hours of cooking on LOW. Less tender cuts of meat like chuck and stew meat work well with this cooking method.
  • Don’t lift the lid to stir, especially if you are cooking on the low setting. Each time you lift the lid, enough heat will escape that the cooking time should be extended by 20-30 minutes.

recipe

  • For best results, ground meats must be cooked in a skillet before cooking in the crock pot.
  • Seafood should be added during the last hour of cooking time, or it will overcook and have a rubbery texture.
  • Large pieces of meat can be browned before cooking in the crock pot, but this step isn’t necessary. Browning adds color and helps in flavor development.
  • Cayenne pepper and hot sauce tend to become bitter if cooked for long periods of time — use small amounts and add toward the end of the cooking time.
  • Add tender vegetables like tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini during the last 45 minutes of cooking time so they do not overcook.
  • Dairy products should be added during the last 30 minutes of cooking time, unless the recipes states otherwise.
  • Liquids do not boil away in the crock pot, so if you are making a recipe that wasn’t specifically developed for the crock pot, reduce the liquid by 1/3 to 1/2 unless you are cooking rice or making soup.
  • Stir in spices during the last hour of cooking. They will lose flavor if cooked with the rest of the ingredients for the entire cooking period.

Glucerna Tips

GLUCEDiabeHomem4857802_CF___JPEG_3

Your healthcare team can best help you understand the relationship between your blood sugar and the foods you eat. They can guide you in making adjustments in the amounts and types of foods you eat, as well as any medication adjustments to best control your blood sugar results.

Blood sugar monitoring before and one-to-two hours after consuming a meal is the best way to determine how foods are affecting your blood sugar. Glucerna products help minimize peaks in blood sugar because of their specialized carbohydrate blend.

However, it is not recommended that someone with diabetes eliminate carbohydrates. They are an important energy source and provide a variety of nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals.

Please check with your healthcare professional to help you understand additional ways to control your blood sugar, such as exercise, assessing your weight-management goals, and assessing medication needs if you are currently taking medications for your blood sugar.

Meal replacements that are specially made for the unique dietary needs of people with diabetes can help you manage blood sugar spikes. That’s where Glucerna can help.

As part of a calorie-controlled nutrition plan, meal replacements like Glucerna can also help you achieve your weight-loss goals. Studies demonstrate meal  replacements can be a beneficial part of a successful weight loss plan. 1,2

People with diabetes need to be mindful of the number of calories and the amount and type of carbohydrates listed on the nutrition label. A meal replacement for weight loss and blood sugar control should provide appropriate calories (fewer than 350) and appropriate carbohydrates. Important nutrients to look for in a meal replacement are protein, unsaturated fat, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
