Gabby we need to do more research on veggies curing diabetes possibly?? I could be saying differently… in my opinion. We r prone in our ancestry way of curing these diseases… possibly… Cooking etc it seems???

With all due respect, I disagree with Just Joyce.. I believe there are veggies that will cure diabetes when consumed on a regular bases. Such as Cauliflower, leafy salads, cabbage,..
possibly fruit.. Not all fruit has a lot of sugar in them, eaten in small portions will slowly cure diabetes and possibly cancers?? :-/
Right Lynn and Gabby ;)

I agree that vegetables are healthy, but I don't think that we can use the phrase 'cure diabetes' with vegetables. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Combined with lean meat and the meat is grilled or oven cooked for that awesome char taste.. possibly?? never say never Lynn right? Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, purple cabbage etc with no flowering just help frequently eaten?? along with med.s that may need to be taken as well??

I agree with Lynn, At the present time I don't think cure is the right word to use. Perhaps we could use the word remission to describe what goes on when a T2D eats right, and things fall into place regarding one's A1c and BG levels.

I like to use whatever vegetables are in season at the farmer's market. This time of year I'm starting to grill vegetables which gives them a great-tasting flavor on their own. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I saw "Guy's Bite" on the Food Network the other day and he did cauliflower steaks. He cut the heart of the cauliflower into about 1 1/2" thick slab or steak and brushed it with olive oil and seasoning and grilled it for about 5 minutes on each side, then finished it in the oven with a topping of Parmesan. I am going to be experimenting with it and hopefully share it here.

Good luck.. ;). Be careful on the olive oil that packs a lot fats/ calories
my friend. That's kind of old school cooking, as they say. Check out the calories on these oils cooks put on their foods and cook with?? I wonder what their numbers are?? :(

it's not really about the calories and all fats are not your enemy in fact Olive oil is a 'healthy fat' and I make an effort to include olive oil, coconut oil and /or butter in my daily nutrition plan (yes, my cholesterol is in the 'excellent' range)
(… avoid vegetable oils and margarine)

Really?? Grilling food tastes great. Thanx for sharing Lynn… Love it. I love veggies…

What all veggies combat diabetes and possibly cancer?? There has got to some or more?? :) Lynn and Gabby…

GabbyPA 2014-05-15 11:05:56 -0500 Report

There is a lot of research into things like broccoli helping prevent cancer. I have read how carrot juice has helped as well, but there is not anything I have read that talks about helping diabetes. I just try to keep to low starch veggies as much as possible.

GabbyPA 2014-05-14 18:31:15 -0500 Report

My favorites are what ever is coming out of my garden. LOL

I love cucumbers, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, egg plant, lettuce, kale, parsley and all kinds of herbs. It all makes for a great salad.

I was approached by the administrators, I didn't look of being an PA. But if you want to pursue it, you want to contact Rachel or John about it

Howdy Qween

Broc and cauli are great veggies to love to eat.

What Jjoyce pointed our is accurate.

According to FDA rules if one spray of a butter spray is less than a half a gram (0.5g) per serving, therefore according to FDA rules it can be rounded to zero. for more see ~ http://www.scientificpsychic.com/fitness/labe... For a discussion on this topic of deceptive nutrition info labels see ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu...

Enjoy your veggies!

Parkay Spray has .8 calories in 1 spray and 4 calories in 5 sprays. Fat content is .085 grams in 1 spray, .4 grams in 5 sprays. That means that in the entire bottle there are 832 total calories from 93 grams of fat.

The only thing to combat diabetes is healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. There is no cure for it.
