DID YOU KNOW?
 
Shrimp – Low in calories and high in protein shrimp is a great addition to any diet.  Aside from protein, shrimp provide a pretty impressive array of nutrients. Four ounces contains over 100% of the Daily Value for selenium, over 75% for vitamin B12, over 50% for phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine.
 
Romesco Sauce - a Spanish romesco roasted red pepper sauce.  Traditionally served with fish this Catalan mixture of roasted red peppers and almonds goes perfectly with poultry as well and adds a bright splash of color to your plate. Made with red bell peppers that provide plenty of vitamin C to power up your immune system. Red bell peppers contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene, which lavish you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The capsaicin in bell peppers reduces ‘bad’ cholesterol, controls diabetes, brings relief from pain and eases inflammation. The sulfur content in bell peppers allows them to play a protective role in certain types of cancers and bells are a good source of Vitamin E, which is known to play a key role in keeping skin and hair looking youthful. Bell peppers also contain vitamin B6, which is essential for the health of the nervous system and helps renew cells. Also in our recipe is apple cider vinegar which Improves insulin sensitivity during a high-carb meal by 19-34% and significantly lowers blood glucose and insulin responses.  Given that vinegar lowers blood sugar and insulin levels, it makes sense that it could help you lose weight. Several human studies suggest that vinegar can increase satiety, help you eat fewer calories and even lead to actual pounds lost on the scale. Vinegar along with high-carb meals can increase feelings of fullness and make people eat fewer calories for the rest of the day.
 
Lebanese Lentil Rice - Our healthy and delicious Lebanese rice - a mixture of red lentils, rice and orzo prepared in our homemade vegetable stock. Nutrient rich lentils contain the highest amount of protein originating from any plant. They are a great source of dietary fiber and also have a low amount of calories.  Dietary fiber found food such as lentils helps in controlling blood sugar levels. Dietary fiber slows down the rate at which food is absorbed by the blood and as a result maintains a consistent blood sugar level.
 
Honey Roasted Carrots - Carrots are tossed with olive oil and honey in this simple, all natural, and delicious side dish. Apart from being a natural sweetener, our honey comes from bees that primarily collect nectar from clovers. Clover honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Because of honey's high sugar content, it may seem counterintuitive for diabetics to eat it. However, studies have shown that honey has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels in diabetics. A 2014 review article published in the "Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders" reported that several studies have found that honey, when used in conjunction with anti-diabetic drugs, actually improves glycemic control. Suggesting that honey does not affect the body the same way that traditional table sugar does.
