Tips & Notes
Pineapple is a sweet treat with a lot of health benefits. It is fat-free and full of vitamins and fiber, but what about the carbs? Because pineapple is sweet, there are carbs to consider, especially if you have type 2 diabetes. When you eat carbohydrates, either simple or complex, your body breaks them down into sugars, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. If you have diabetes, this can make your blood sugar rise which can be harmful to your health. It’s a good idea to keep track of how many carbs you eat at a meal.
When counting carbs, fruit is always a healthier nutritional choice than a packaged snack or rich dessert.

Pecan Crusted Roast Pork Loin

Pecan Crusted Roast Pork Loin qualifies as a lean protein. Pork loin is an excellent lean protein with fat burning properties and it is delicious.

Pecan Crusted Roast Pork LoinPrep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Ready In: 45 min

Servings: 4

Ingredients
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic, crushed
1 tsp Brown Sugar
Thyme, Sage and fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste (optional)
¼ cup Pecans, chopped or ground
12 oz Boneless Pork Loin Roast

Directions
Put olive oil, crushed garlic, brown sugar, and seasonings (if using) in a heavy, freezer-style plastic bag. Work bag until ingredients are mixed. Add roast; turn in bag to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Roll pork loin in chopped pecans; place in roasting pan.
Make a tent of aluminum foil; arrange over pork loin, covering nuts completely so they won’t char.
Roast for 10 minutes, then lower heat to 350°F. Continue to roast for another 8 to 15 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 150°F to 170°F, depending on how well done you prefer it.

Tips & Notes
Create a Celery Roasting Rack
If you prefer to bake a loin roast in a casserole alongside potatoes and carrots, elevate the roast on 2 or 3 stalks of celery. The celery will absorb any fat that drains from the meat so that it’s not absorbed by the other vegetables. After cooking, discard the celery.
Pork often gets a bad reputation, but lean cuts such as pork tenderloin offer surprising health benefits, according to TheFatBurningFurnace.com.
One serving of pork loin is 4 ounces and has 121 calories per serving. Pork loin has a low fat count — just 4 grams per serving — no carbs and no fiber. But what it also shows is an amazing 22 grams of protein per 4 ounces of pork loin
Pork loins also provide us with plenty of essential vitamins, with high levels of thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, riboflavin and vitamin B12. These vitamins are essential for successful fat loss as well as improved health.
When it comes to minerals, pork loin nutrition facts are packed with them all. Phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc are found in large numbers in one serving of pork loin, while calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese are found in lower — but not insignificant — quantities.

Tuna Egg Noodle Casserole

Tuna Egg Noodle Casserole is the ultimate comfort food. Its healthy ingredients, smooth texture and delicious taste will make this your go-to dish.

Tuna Egg Noodle CasserolePrep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Ready In: 40 min

Servings: 4

Ingredients
1⅓ cups Egg Noodles (yields 2 cups when cooked)
1 recipe Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (recipe below)
1 tsp steamed chopped Onion
1 tbsp steamed chopped Celery
½ cup Skim Milk
1 oz American, Cheddar or Colby Cheese, shredded (to yield ¼ cup)
1 cup frozen mixed Peas and Carrots
1 cup steamed sliced fresh Mushrooms
1 can Tuna packed in water, drained

Cream of Mushroom Soup
Ingredients
½ cup Water
⅛ cup Ener-G Potato Flour
¾ cup finely chopped Fresh Mushrooms
Optional ingredients: 1 tsp chopped Onion, 1 tbsp chopped Celery
Directions
In a microwave-safe covered container, microwave mushrooms (and onion and celery, if using) 2 minutes, or until tender. (About ¾ cup chopped mushrooms will yield ½ cup steamed ones.) Reserve any resulting liquid; add enough water to equal 1 cup.
Place all ingredients in a blender; process. The thickness of soup concentrate will vary according to how much moisture remains in mushrooms. If necessary, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to achieve a paste. (Low-sodium canned mushrooms work in this recipe, but the nutritional analysis assumes fresh mushrooms are used. Adjust sodium content accordingly.)
Yields the equivalent of one, 10.75 ounce can of condensed soup.

Directions
Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and return to pan.
Add all remaining ingredients to pan; stir to blend. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.

Tips & Notes
Add 1 medium egg (beaten) and 1 tablespoon mayonnaise to give casserole taste of rich, homemade egg noodles, while still maintaining good fat ratio. It’s still less than 300 calories per serving, too.

Nutritional Information Per Serving
(The nutritional analysis for this recipe assumes egg noodles were cooked without salt.)

Vegetable Frittata tastes exotic without being exotic. Your family and friends will love the combination of vegetables delicately cooked in eggs.

Vegetable Frittata Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Ready In: 25 min

Servings: 4

Ingredients
1½ tbsp Olive Oil
4 oz Red Pepper, chopped
3 large Eggs
4 oz Egg Substitute (or egg whites)
4 oz Asparagus, cut diagonally in 1-inch pieces
¾ cup Potatoes, cooked and cubed
⅓ cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 tsp Oregano

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Using ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add red peppers; cook until softened.
In medium bowl, beat together eggs and egg substitute. Add asparagus, potatoes, feta and oregano.
Pour eggs into skillet; gently stir until eggs on bottom of pan begin to set. Gently pull cooked eggs from side of skillet, allowing liquid uncooked egg on top to come in contact with heated skillet. Repeat, working all around skillet, until most of eggs on top have begun to set.
Transfer skillet to oven; bake until top is set and dry to the touch, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Loosen frittata around edges of skillet and invert onto serving plate.

Tips & Notes
If you have type 2 diabetes then you know that watching your carbohydrate intake is very important for good blood glucose management. Increasing your intake of vegetables is a great way to keep control of your calories and carbs. Veggies such as asparagus are naturally low carb and have a low glycemic index. Asparagus is in season in the early spring, so keep an eye out for this healthy and delicious vegetable.
Asparagus adds a touch of class to any meal and is high in fiber. Steamed, sautéed or stir-fried, asparagus brings a lot to the table, providing a rich source of vitamins A, B, C and K as well as iron and other essential minerals.
