Some of the recipes have a few healthier ingredients substituted, while some have a different cooking method used. But remember, while all the recipes have been modified to make them diabetic-friendly, make sure you heed that suggestion to have it in limited quantities as an occasional treat only. 

 Healthy Diabetic International Starter Recipes

 Starters are delicacies that everyone wants to feast on. Yes they are a flavourful start to your meal, but one needs to be cautious of the ingredients used to make these starters and keep a check at their portion size. Pizza, open toasts and other deep fried starters are some international dishes found on most restaurant as well as party menus.

 What’s unhealthy about these recipes? Excessive use of variety of breads and fats. Here we have shared ways to find healthier substitutes to these ingredients. You can try your hand at these options for you to please your palate for International starters in your own kitchen.

Mini pizza, the most served starter, can easily modified by avoiding the use of bread and substituting it with a oats bhakri base as we have done in the recipe of Oats Bhakri Pizza. This pizza doesn’t even make use of fat-laden cheese. Providing 16 g of carbs per mini pizza, it is best to restrict to one pizza.

Dips with chips is yet another common starter. Dips are usually loaded with mayonnaise, cheese and other fatty ingredients. Moreover the chips are also fried. And these foods if consumed over a long period of time might lead to fluctuations in blood sugar levels which can worsen diabetes and lead to other complications of diabetes. Garlicky Hummus is one dip you can truly rely on… it has no use of fat brimming ingredients. Further serve it with cucumber sticks instead of fried chips and you are all set to have a healthy starter.

Mexican Skewers is also a starter which is diabetic-friendly. This makes use of fiber laden veggies which will avoid that quick rise in blood sugar levels. 

Healthy Diabetic International Main Course Recipes

Main course are supposed to be more filling and usually devoured in a big portion size too. But for diabetics it is advisable to not have a large meal, but instead have small meals to regular intervals. As a more nourishing option you can opt for Healthy Burritos. This makes use of whole wheat flour based nutri tortillas and is loaded with a variety of vegetables. The salsa and the stuffing have been made so tasty that it is difficult to resist.

Paneer Veggie Wrap is yet another wholesome option for diabetics. The high glycemic index potatoes have been replaced with high protein paneer. Again the chapatis are made with wheat flour and not carb-filled maida or cornflour.

Yet another way to go healthy is to add a larger chunk of veggies and reduce the use of carb bound ingredient. For example say rice. That’s high in glycemic index and everyone is aware that it’s a No-No for diabetics.

Here we have a recipe of Mexican Rice. White rice has been replaced with brown rice and veggies like tomatoes, capsicum, carrot and French beans which are fiber-filled have been added in more quantity comparatively. Make such a delicacy without oil as we have done and enjoy this international fare in a very small quantity. Also try with diabetic friendly Chinese fried rice accompaining with Hot and Sour vegetables.

Healthy Diabetic International Stir-fry Recipes

Stir-fries in most forms are a healthier option than cheese laden foods. Yes, the use of vegetables is definitely to be credited for this. All you need to remember is to avoid the use of corn flour or restrict its use to 1 teaspoon or so.

Also avoid use of excess oil. Use more of fresh and dried herbs instead. Broccoli, Mushrooms and Bean Sprouts Stir-fry and Raw Papaya and Cabbage Stir-fry are some flavourful ideas you can try.

Healthy Diabetic International Recipes using Sprouts

Sprouts are said to be a friend of diabetics. They do not cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels due to their high fiber content. Read More Benefits of Sprouts.
