As this country becomes totally obese, the health of our loved ones who have diabetes is lessening their quality of life. I believe that most people understand what it takes to mitigate their diabetes problems, and it involves a diet that fits them. We’ve all heard diabetics say, “I can’t eat sugar… I can’t have my pizza, I can’t drink a soda.” While all of these are importantly very true, there are ingredients out on the market that are being utilized by professional chefs catering to the cooking of meals for diabetics. I have worked in the health food industry in the past, and no I am not a professional dietician, nor a nutritionist. However I have learned about healthy cooking by cooking for people looking for healthy foods. We needed to stock our hot bar with delicious foods one may eat at home, or comfort foods if you will. But by cutting back on high glycemic processed sugars, syrups and such, we used to make awesome meals by using organic agave nectar, and using Stevia. We would never use processed white sugar, but we would use brown raw sugar all the time in moderation. What I’ve learned is this, everyone who has diabetes either Types 1 or Types 2, will have different proportions made up for them during meal time, as you know each person is unique from height, weight, nationality, family makeup… you name it we are all different. For instance you may see an overweight man and automatically claim, “He’s a diabetic for sure.” But he’s not, but the skinny woman standing next to him is. You see what I mean?

One of my services is cooking healthy meals for you or your loved one friend or family, call me and I can help you prepare delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinners. Or if only one person in  your party needs a healthy diabetic friendly meal I can customize it for you. Just remember, I will not cook for anyone unless I have an interview with that person, I will need a written instructions from his or her doctor, nutritionist, or dietician instructing types of foods that he or she can consume. Again I am not a licensed dietician or nutritionist but understand the ingredients that is needed to make an awesome meal that is diabetic friendly.

Serving portions are of importance and if you already have seen a professional in your meal preparations, you understand the portions that you can consume. I can only follow your professional health care providers instructions and prepare your meals, but I cannot stop you from eating more or less than you’re supposed to.

Fried Chicken, Pizza, Omelets, Steaks, Seafood, Fish, Beef Stews, Roasts, all of these types of home cooking can be customize for you using the safe ingredients for diabetics. I also use cook books for guides in cooking for diabetics, I’ll use certified books from the American Diabetes Association.

Just remember I can make your meals pleasurable again so please contact me by email chefsambrano@gmail.com
