Pre-diabetes — are you at risk?–

–by Dr. Julie Gorman–

More than 41 million Americans fall into the category of having pre-diabetes. With pre-diabetes, one’s fasting blood sugar is above normal (100 mg/dL), but not yet high enough to be classified as diabetes. People with pre-diabetes do not usually have symptoms, so most are not even aware they have it. Doctors often just categorize these people into “watchful waiting,” which means they do not start treatment until the blood sugars are high enough to be classified as diabetes (a fasting blood sugar of 126 mg/dL or greater).

~Salsa Chicken in the Instant Pot~

The Instant Pot makes this tasty salsa chicken dinner so easy, that you will want to add it to your meal plan every week.  You do not have to thaw the chicken, which makes it possible to prepare as a last minute add on for unexpected guests.  This could likely be modified to be used in a slow cooker also.

Shredding the chicken after it is cooked turns leftovers into delicious chicken lettuce wraps.  You can also prepare zero carb miracle noodles or zero carb miracle rice with this meal.  For keto meal planning, you may want to bulk up the fat macro with some sour cream and/or shredded cheddar cheese.
