Busting Some Myths About Diabetic Diet Cooking

May 26, 2008
Patient foods are always considered to be a very unattractive term in the world of gastronomy. People tend to think that diabetic cooking is nothing but a whole bunch of restrictions and the entire cuisine is about eating all the foods that you would not even consider to be a whole square meal. This is definitely the idea that is making people cringe when they are diagnosed with diabetes. The idea on living on a frugal diet for a whole life makes them more miserable than the disease itself can make them.

There are several myths surrounding diabetes food recipes. Here I try to dispel some of these myths.

Myth # 1 diabetic cooking is always bland and boring.

Just because you are not allowed to eat certain foods when you have diabetes does not mean that the foods will be bland and boring. You can create gourmet delights with the foods that you are allowed to eat, and that's a fact. You can try different avenues of cooking that are healthier. For instance, you can roast your meat instead of cooking it in oil. You can replace red meats with white meats. There are several such things that you can do to make your diet interesting.

Myth # 2 diabetic diet means never having to eat favorite foods ever again.

While it is true that you won't be exactly allowed to gorge on your favorite foods when you have diabetes, it does not mean that you will never be able to eat them anymore. You must understand that the whole idea of a diabetic diet is to allow the foods to metabolize properly. If you are eating your favorite food, there's no harm done if that food can get out of your system after digestion. Patient food methods tell you how to balance foods so that none of them accumulate in your system. Like, if you eat a dessert, you can balance it with some bitter food later on that will allow the dessert to be out of your system.

Myth # 3 health cooking is synthetic and expensive.

People have this misconception because of the sugar-free substitutes that diabetic people are told to use. But you must know that these substitutes are not a necessary part of the diet. You can do without them. In fact, you can do without the sweet taste altogether. When you are diabetic, it is a good time to experiment with different kinds of tastes and flavors. Any good diabetic cookbook will tell you several ways of doing this. Actually, diabetes cooking is much cheaper than normal cooking, because of the economical cooking methods used.
