Comfort food is not called “comfort” for no reason. People often crave some warm and hearty foods, especially during the colder season. Stew is a perfect example of comfort food and unfortunately, comfort foods are not exactly the best choice for people with diabetes as well as for weight management. In particular, comfort food is often high in saturated fat, calories, and cholesterol.

However, it doesn’t mean that you cannot make a stew that will be delicious and diabetes-friendly at the same time. First of all, choose the right meat. Whether you want to make a beef, lamb, pork, rabbit, chicken, or turkey stew, buy the leanest cuts. For a beef stew get sirloin, chuck, loin or round cut; for a lamb stew buy a leg or loin; for a pork stew go with loin chop or tenderloin; and if you are willing to make a veal stew, you can use rib chop, sirloin, loin chop, or top round. Don’t be afraid to pick lean cuts of meat – you stew still will be juicy and full of flavor.

You should also add a lot of vegetables into your stew. Having plenty of vegies means more nutrition for you without adding unnecessary fat.

If you are planning to use cream in your stew recipe, try to use it in moderation or even replace it with a low-fat alternative such as low-fat milk. Use salt in moderation as well. And of course, portion control should never be forgotten.

If you want to try a new stew recipe but you see that it will turn out too generous on fat and salt, try to skin it down or pick another, more diabetes-friendly one. Thankfully, there are plenty of them out there. Here are a few of our favorite stew recipes.
