A tangy, creamy ranch dressing made with fat free cottage cheese and low calorie powder ranch mix.
I used part of a packet of low calorie ranch dressing powder & used my submersion blender to smooth it out. Add a little h2o to get the consistency wanted. 1/2 cup serving of cottage cheese is about 80. So as long as you don't drown your food, you're way ahead of the game.
4 ounces of shrimp equals about 115 calories. It is a good source for Omega 3's, vitamin D and B-12, although they are low in protein. It is said shrimp can contribute to high cholesterol, and some people are prone to get gout from the purines in shrimp. Eat moderately, or maybe just add a few to pasta with a veggie. Or boil and peel. They won't disturb gloucose balance.
Some vinegar in your diet may improve your blood sugar Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo, discovered that the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar. Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control. See more info...
The easiest way to get the vinegar is by using an oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole wheat bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar
