Red Snapper

Contributed by: NAPSA

A Quick, Healthy Dish For People With Diabetes And Their Families

By the National Diabetes Education Program

(NAPSA) - Diabetes is a serious disease that results in high glucose (sugar levels) in the blood, which can lead to serious health problems. Almost 24 million people in the United States have the disease. If you have diabetes, you know that the day-to-day steps needed to manage the disease can be hard.

Red Snapper
Diabetes can lead to blindness, loss of limb, kidney failure, heart disease, and early death. Managing diabetes can be easier if you set goals and make a plan. Talk with your health care team about making a plan, which should include ways to make healthier food choices, increase your physical activity, and reach and stay at a healthy weight. One part of your plan may be learning how to prepare a quick, healthy dish for your family.

Follow these tips from the National Diabetes Education Program to make healthier meals that your whole family can enjoy:

  • Before going to the grocery store, check flyers, ads, and websites to see what is on sale. Make a list of what you need, and check to see what foods you already have at home.

  • Find recipes online or at your local library that have five to 10 ingredients or less.

  • Buy fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season-they usually cost less.

  • Buy items like fat-free or low-fat milk, cheese, and yogurt in the largest size you know your family will consume so you are not paying for extra packaging.

  • Instead of flavored rice, buy plain brown rice. Add fresh or dried herbs and spices to add flavor.

  • Look for deals on whole-grain, day-old breads in the bakery department. Search for specials on lean cuts at the meat counter.

  • Prepare meals in advance to make mealtime less stressful, and use the leftovers to make other dishes.

Here's an example of a healthy dish that serves four and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare.

(This recipe also works well with chicken breast used in place of red snapper)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrots, cut into strips
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine*
  • 3/4 pound (12 oz.) of red snapper fillet
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. pitted ripe olives, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. crumbled low-fat feta or low-fat ricotta cheese

Directions:

*Water or fat-free broth can be used in place of white wine.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and add onion, red pepper, carrots, and garlic. Saute for 10 minutes then add wine and bring to a boil. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan.

Arrange fillets in a single layer in center of skillet. Cover to cook for 5 minutes. Add tomato and olives. Top with cheese then cover and cook for 3 minutes or until fish is firm but moist. Transfer fish to a serving platter and add vegetables and pan juices.

Serve fish on top of vegetables with brown rice. Enjoy!
