Kind of cold here in Michigan so I made myself a small pot of chicken 'noodle' soup.

Cover a single chicken breast from the freezer with water in a small pot. Add one bouillon cube. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. While it's cooking chop up a carrot and slice some cabbage nice and thin for the 'noodles'. After the chicken is done remove the breast, dice and put in the carrot, cabbage, chicken and a small can of mushrooms (if you like) into the pot. Simmer gently, covered about 20 more minutes till the veggies are soft.

Yummmmm! Warm in my tummy!

Hi Jeannie

 

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm I LOVE soup...I would live on it if hubby didnt insist on his meat and taters and veggie meals.

I have also made your soup using extra lean gound beef..and add a can of stewed tomatoes to the cabbage and carrot and celery comb, and the boullion.  I hope some of you peeps try these recipes, they sound ho hum...but they are anything but!! turn

 

Chicken soup for the diabetic soul..lol

start 6:00 am  but whole chichen(or2) in a pot of water(add a bit more if needed later). add sea salt and pepper corns,sm amount diced garlic...cut up carrots,celery and onion..boil chicken,skim fat(keep skimming through out cooking) turn to med low(or low) simmer, adding carrots,celery and  onion at different times,simmer 10-12 hours..chicken will slide off the bones.. 
 now if you want good solid arteries you can put skimmed fat into glass jar and refrigherate until solid use instead of butter or cooking oil, that's what my mother used to do when i was young..how things have changed :}:}
 p.s.-remember to take gizzards out of chicken before cooking,,fry them up for your dog or cat  they'll love you for it !!!! scool

Kelly, welcome to the Diabetes Forum.  I'm glad you found your way here.  I'm sure you'll find a lot of information here about this disease, meds and diet.  You were so lucky to have caught this rather than lived with those high blood sugar readings for too long.  All diabetics, no matter type 1, 2 or borderline, benefit from cutting way down on carbohydrates.  Doing this will have at least two immediate effects: lower blood sugar and the start of weight loss.  Please be sure to continue to test your blood sugar whenever your diet and/or weight changes especially since your medications may be affected; that is, you may end up going 'low' if your weight and diet are drastically changed.  Please read through the past postings here and I'm sure you'll learn a lot, and don't be shy about asking questions because that's how we all learn.  :-)

Hi Kelly,
Glad to make a new friend, but sorry for the reason. Read back in the posts and you'll learn lots about how your new friends cope with diabetes and all the stuff that goes with it. Congratulations on the great drop in your numbers!
