WALMART – We’re helping people manage their diabetes with healthy food choices, thanks for American Diabetes Association CEO Tracey D. Brown & Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist Sumi Tohan. Watch & learn how to make delicious meals for yourself & your fam with ingredients found at Walmart.

Here is a super simple weeknight dinner that’s ready under 30 minutes and only requires one dish! This recipe makes 2 servings, but it could easily be doubled or tripled to serve a family. If fresh green beans aren’t available, you could sub in frozen green beans, or another fresh seasonal vegetable.

SHEET PAN SALMON

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425° F. For easy clean up line a sheet pan with parchment paper or coat sheet with cooking spray.
  • Pat salmon fillets dry, leaving skin on. Place the fillets, skin-side down on the sheet pan.
  • Combine the dill and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Spread the mixture evenly over both fillets.
  • Toss the green beans with olive oil and then arrange around the salmon fillets.
  • Place the baking sheet on the middle rack and roast salmon for 14 to 16 minutes. Fish will be done when the flesh begins to flake easily with a fork. Garnish with lemon slices and more fresh dill.

Carbs, carbs, carbs—what about them?

When it comes to managing diabetes, the carbohydrates, or carbs, you eat play an important role. They impact your blood sugar, so remember that balance is key!

There are three main types of carbohydrates in food—starches, sugar and fiber. As you’ll see on the nutrition labels for the food you buy, the term “total carbohydrate” refers to all three of these types.

When it comes to choosing foods with carbs, the goal is to choose carbs that are nutrient-dense, which means they are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals, and low in added sugars, sodium and unhealthy fats.
