Diabetes Health

There are many concurrent health problems that go along with Type 2 Diabetes. There can be cholesterol, high blood pressure, and other non-life threatening problems. If you want to live a long and happy life you must see a doctor. Get checked out for these things with a simple blood test. In my opinion, the best cholesterol medicine, by far, is Lipitor.

My experiment with black beans and buckwheat is very successful. Both of these foods are high in fiber and the beans give the dish an added burst of protein. Last night for supper I had buckwheat mixed with black beans and some frozen veggies. It took about 5 minutes to prepare and was very tasty.

Black Beans?

I've been eating buckwheat for lunch everyday, but even with the nutritional yeast the taste can be a bit bland. So I've been online looking for something tasty to add to my new superfood. I've decided to add some black beans and see if I get exponential benefits. http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=2  Stay tuned to see how the experiment works out.

Blood Sugar Levels

I've been doing an experiment with my blood testing before and after eating buckwheat. For the past week I've taken readings before a meal and have averaged 134 on my glucose meter. My after meal readings a half hour later averaged 140 and an hour later it was 130! It's amazing to eat and have your blood sugar levels go down.

A Super Food?

I've recently discovered a new food choice for diabetics that is a really old choice. In many  European and Asian countries Buckwheat is a staple of their diet. It can be used in place of rice or potatoes and has many health benefits. Please see this link: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=11

You can get buckwheat at any healthfood store and many supermarkets. To cook this "superfood" all I do is get a 160z. box of soup stock (low sodium). Bring the stock to a boil and then add 8oz. of buckwheat. I also add 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast. http://www.efn.org/~sundance/NutritionalYeast.html  Bring back to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes.

I cook a bunch of this on the weekend and store it in the refrigerator for a quick and healthy lunch everyday! Just a note on reheating. You should choose the "reheat" function on the microwave and cook about a cup on the "pasta" setting. (1 serving).
