Have #Diabetes? A Dessert Just For You (Helps Stabilize Blood Sugar)

From the last blog post regards #diabetes, I reviewed a few nutrition and lifestyle approaches you can take to help keep your blood sugar stable:

  • Minimizing excessive carbs
  • Eating more fiber
  • Exercising
  • Reducing stress
  • Improving sleep

All of these, even if done in small increments are a key to having stable blood sugar (and overall good health).

Here is something that you can also enjoy: a blood sugar balancing recipe for a dessert.

Cinnamon Apples

This recipe is good for 4 servings. #Diabetes

What You Need –

  • 2 apples, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

 

Putting It Together –

  1. Place chopped apples into a small saucepan with 2 tbsp water.
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. After about 5 minutes the apples will become slightly soft, and water will be absorbed.
  3. Add 1 tbsp coconut oil. Stir apples and oil together.
  4. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring every minute or so.
  5. Add cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Stir well.
  6. Cook for another few minutes, stirring until the apples reach your desired softness!

Serve and enjoy!

Tip: Keeping the peel on increases the fiber, which is even better for stabilizing your blood sugar.
