Carbohydrate-Serving Calculator

Carbohydrate-Serving Calculator Use the ranges given below to convert a food's carbohydrate content to its equivalent in Carbohydrate Servings. Grams (G) Carbohydrate Carbohydrate Servings 0-5 ................0 6-10................1/2 11-20...............1 21-25...............1 1/2 26-35...............2 36-40...............2 1/2 41-50...............3 51-55...............3 1/2 56-65...............4 Note: If a food contains 5 or more grams of dietary fiber per serving, subtract that number from the Total Carbohydrate grams. For example, a 38-gram carbohydrate portion with 5 grams of fiber would count as 38-5=33 grams. This would make it equivalent to 2 Carbohydrate Servings instead of 2 1/2.

Substitution Chart Olive Oil for Butter

Substitution Chart Olive Oil for Butter From: When recipes call for cooking oils or fats, try olive oil instead. It's easy — where you would usually use cooking oils such as vegetable or canola oil, or fats such as butter or margarine, just substitute olive oil. It's better for you — and it tastes terrific, too. As a rule of thumb, substitute an equal amount of olive oil for other cooking oils and three quarters the amount for butter or margarine. For exact guidelines, use the chart below. Butter/Margarine = Olive Oil 1 teaspoon = 3/4 teaspoon 1 tablespoon = 2 1/4 teaspoons 2 tablespoons = 1 1/2 tablespoons 1/4 cup = 3 tablespoons 1/3 cup = 1/4 cup 1/2 cup = 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons 2/3 cup = 1/2 cup 3/4 cup = 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon 1 cup = 3/4 cup Diabetic Recipes

Ingredient substitutions - Make the switch for healthier recipes

Diabetic Recipes Ingredient substitutions - Make the switch for healthier recipes From The Mayo Clinic Cook up healthier recipes by swapping one ingredient for another. These substitution tips can help. When preparing recipes, you've probably swapped one ingredient for another — perhaps you didn't like one of the ingredients or you were missing a called-for item. But have you thought about routinely substituting ingredients for healthier eating? Simple changes, such as using egg whites instead of whole eggs or garlic powder instead of garlic salt, can make a big difference in the amount of fat, sodium, sugar and other nutrients in the foods you eat each day. So what healthy exchanges can you make without affecting the taste or texture of your food? Try these suggestions for healthier meals and snacks. To reduce the amount of fat and cholesterol If your recipe calls for: Try substituting: 1. Bacon -- Canadian bacon, turkey bacon, smoked turkey or lean prosciutto (Italian ham) 2. Butter, margarine, shortening or oil in baked goods -- Applesauce or prune puree for half of the called-for butter, shortening or oil. *Note: To avoid dense, soggy or flat baked goods, don't substitute oil for butter or shortening, and don't substitute diet, whipped or tub-style margarine for regular margarine. 3. Butter, margarine, shortening or oil to prevent sticking-- Cooking spray or use nonstick pans 4. Creamed soups -- Fat-free milk-based soups, mashed potato flakes, or pureed carrots, potatoes or tofu for thickening agents 5.Eggs -- Two egg whites or 1/4 cup egg substitute for each whole egg 6. Evaporated milk -- Evaporated skim milk 7. Full-fat cream cheese-- Fat-free or low-fat cream cheese, Neufchatel or low-fat cottage cheese pureed until smooth 8. Full-fat sour cream -- Fat-free plain yogurt, or fat-free or low-fat sour cream 9. Ground beef -- Extra-lean or lean ground beef, chicken or turkey 10. Mayonnaise -- Reduced-calorie mayonnaise-type salad dressing or reduced-calorie, reduced-fat mayonnaise 11. Oil-based marinades -- Wine, balsamic vinegar, fruit juice or fat-free broth 12. Salad dressing -- Fat-free or reduced-calorie dressing or flavored vinegars 13. Whole milk --- Reduced-fat or fat-free milk To reduce the amount of sodium If your recipe calls for: Try substituting: 1. Seasoning salt, such as garlic salt, celery salt or onion salt -- Herb-only seasonings, such as garlic powder, celery seed or onion flakes, or use finely chopped garlic, celery or onions 2. Soups, sauces, dressings, crackers, or canned meat, fish or vegetables -- Low-sodium or reduced-sodium versions 3. Soy sauce -- Sweet-and-sour sauce, hot mustard sauce or low-sodium soy sauce 4. Table salt -- Herbs, spices, fruit juices or salt-free seasoning mixes or herb blends To reduce the amount of sugar If your recipe calls for: Try substituting: 1. Fruit canned in heavy syrup -- Fruit canned in its own juices or in water, or fresh fruit 2. Fruit-flavored yogurt -- Plain yogurt with fresh fruit slices 3. Syrup -- Pureed fruit, such as applesauce, or low-calorie, sugar-free syrup To increase the amount of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and fiber If your recipe calls for: Try substituting: 1. All-purpose (plain) flour -- Whole-wheat flour for half of the called-for all-purpose flour 2. Dry bread crumbs-- Rolled oats or crushed bran cereal 3. Enriched pasta-- Whole-wheat pasta 4. Iceberg lettuce-- Arugula, chicory, collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach or watercress 5. Meat as the main ingredient -- Three times as many vegetables as the meat on pizzas or in casseroles, soups and stews 6. White bread Whole- wheat bread 7. White rice -- Brown rice, wild rice, bulgur or pearl barley Diabetic Recipes
