|Quaker Steel Cut Oats|
From a standpoint of nutritional value, note that the following sequence would apply:
- Steel Cut Oats
- 3-minute "Quick" Steel Cut Oats
- Old-Fashioned Oats
- Quick Old-Fashioned Oats
For diabetics what is important to know is that the pure Steel Cut Oats would also have the lowest Glycemic Index.
Oatmeal with berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries), is super health, and I like it with a shredded green apple and lots of cinnamon and topped with a tablespoon (or two) of balsamic vinegar.
|Steamed Kale, Sweet potato, with balsamic vinegar|
After that, I have a "desert" of steamed kale with boiled sweet potato and again dressed with some balsamic vinegar.
P.S. In general, everyone who is on any medicine should discuss their diet with their doctor, for once you go on a whole foods, plant-based diet, your doses can often be reduced. This is especially true for diabetics. Recommended literature is:
- for heart patients: Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.
- for diabetics: Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Preventing and Reversing Diabetes.
