There have many so many discussions lately about Carbs (carbohydrates) and how many should one have. Whether it be per meal or per day.
I thought it would be a good idea, to put forth a meal showing both how many carbs and calories, one person could have in a meal. I thought that Most people sit down to dinner together, that this would be the most appropriate.
Of course everyone is different in what their CDE or Dietary has told them they could consume per meal. I was told by my CDE that I could have between 2 to 3 carb servings per meal (which is 30-45 carbs).
I'm posting one of my typical meals, with both the carbs and calories for a dinner meal :
Herb Crusted Chicken 203 Calories 6g Carbohydrates
Italian Green Beans 36 Calories 3g Carbohydrates
Easy Scalloped Potatoes 94 Calories 17g Carbohydrates
Dessert : Cinnamon Sugar Apple Rings 68 Calories 10g Carbohydrates
My total meal is 401 Calories and only 36 Carbohydrates
So, Now What are you having for dinner?
Let us show the new people who were just diagnosed on how to put a meal together.
