Butternut Risotto: A delicious dish for diabetics!

 

Butternut Risotto – a great recipe for diabetics
I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting this dish, as yet, but it sounds delicious!

Sweet butternut squash lends its pretty color, along with saffron and turmeric, to this classic Italian risotto. Arborio rice is fatter and starchier than other varieties and results in the creamy texture associated with risotto. Instead of grated Parmesan cheese, some cooks save their Parmesan rinds and put one or two in the saucepan once the broth is boiling. This is an efficient way to make use of these cheese “ends.”
Ingredients:
• 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 pound butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
• 1-1/2 cups Arborio rice
• 1/4 teaspoon thread saffron, crushed, or ground turmeric
• 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
• 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
• 1/8 teaspoon pepper
• Finely shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
Directions:
1. In a medium saucepan bring broth to boiling. Cover and reduce heat until broth just simmers. Meanwhile, in large, nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir for 15 seconds. Add squash and rice; cook and stir 1 minute more.
2. Slowly and carefully add 1/2 cup of the hot broth and the saffron or turmeric to rice mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir over medium heat until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the broth has been absorbed, but the mixture is creamy. (This should take about 25 minutes total.)
3. Remove from heat; stir in butter or margarine, the 2 tablespoons cheese, and the pepper. Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with additional finely shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Health is the number one priority for any person but especially a person who is a diabetic. Intake of proper food creates better weight control and definitely helps control diabetes. We want to create the proper health for your feet and that is done with proper footwear and proper inserts. The following information you’ll be reading is what is required to achieve that perfect health for your feet.

Please allow us to get you fitted with the proper footwear and hopefully, with our help, you will be working your way toward success in keeping this disease out of your feet. We, at “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic,” know that proper footwear for you and the need to have the proper inserts to keep diabetes out of your feet is important. Footwear should be fashionable (and we have that) but the ultimate purpose of the shoe is to control upper support and to off-load any problems that you have on the top of your foot. If you are experiencing problems with the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of a proper, removable insert to correct them. Many people believe that it is the shoe that solves all or most of the problems for diabetics or people with major foot problems, but that is not always the case. Off-loading requires three elements – corrections, added support and developing added circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.

Shoes for diabetics should not have inside seams that create irritation.

First of all, the proper shoe needs to be a Therapeutic/Comfort (please!) not Comfort shoes (which many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today). Secondly, Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Inserts are necessary. Beside great support, the other advantages of added off-loading will help you develop better balance for walking or running and the 2% increase in temperature of the bottom of your feet will aid in developing better circulation to keep the disease out of your feet. Think of the added pleasures and advantages in just one item.
