1. Mac And Cheese
Starting off with the ultimate American comfort food, macaroni and cheese doesn’t just fill your heart but also your soul.
Meatloaf might have dipped in popularity but we can’t deny the fact this delicious dish is a comfort food for many Americans!
3. Veggie Chili
Nothing beats a steaming hot bowl of veggie chili. Not only is it soul food, it’s loaded with vegetables which offer fiber and deliciousness that makes a hearty meal for the whole family. It is also a great weight loss meal because of all the protein and good fat.
Wait…I don’t have to give up on tacos? Sweet! This healthy, low carb taco will come as a good news for every diabetic taco lover.
If you’ve stopped ordering from dominos then good for you! The pizza you get at these outlets and fast food joints are packed with unhealthy ingredients.
Burgers have nothing going for them when it comes to being healthy. They’re deep fried, breaded and contain harmful red meat like beef, pork and lamb.
7. Spaghetti and meatballs
Nothing spells comfort better than a bowl of silky spaghetti with meatballs. There are many delicious ways to make a healthier, diabetic friendly version of this classic italian meal which we all love. You just have to think outside the box.
8. Fried chicken
Fried food in general is heavily breaded, contains saturated fats and is considered to be one of the unhealthiest foods.
9. Pot roast
Pot roast can be referred to as a meat curry with vegetables. Sound healthy? Not really! A typical pot roast contains meat, carrots, potatoes and any vegetables you like.
10. Tomato soup
Masquerading as a healthy food, tomato soup can be rather unhealthy, especially for diabetics. When made correctly tomato soup can be your best friend due to its high antioxidants, vitamins and flavonoids content.
You heard that right! Your beloved brownies are here to stay. Brownies have too much sugar which is the only marker for developing diabetes.
12. Fish sticks
This fast food is an American favorite especially as a side dish. Every aspect of fish sticks is unwelcome news for diabetics.
