My food journal for the last few months of home cooking, eat out in a restaurant, either alone or with family and friends. Identifying my habitual eating patterns and also trucking what I prepare and eat from time to time, should be accordingly from my dietician’s advice.

All Boiled, spinach and squid – iCookiTravel

As a strategy for eating well with diabetes, poaching, broiling and boiling is good less intake of fat much better.  Like saturated fat such as butter instead I usually use margarine, olive oil or canola oil.  Or just boiled it like what you see picture above.  I don’t have to be a world class chef in order to enjoy the modifications of meals I love.  It should be diabetes-friendly and that matters most.
