Slow Cooked Beef, Kohlrabi Cilantro Slaw, and a Roasted Onion Stuffed with Whole Wheat Chipotle Orzo
Adding chipotle, specifically the capsaicin in them, to your diet can help reduce many of the dangerous conditions associated with diabetes. The capsaicin in aides by managing insulin levels in the body, which reduces flares, spikes, and plunges of blood sugar. This quality makes chipotle invaluable to diabetic patients, particularly for those with type 2 diabetes.
Weight Loss: Recent studies have shown that adding capsaicin to your diet stimulates consistent fat oxidation, rather than storage, so fat is turned into useful, functional energy. In addition to long-term weight loss, capsaicin found in chipotle and jalapeno peppers also increases postprandial metabolism. Post-prandial just means "after eating", so directly after eating a capsaicin rich meal, the body increases its metabolism, burns more calories, and basically functions at a higher level across various organ systems, positively effecting the body. They are also positively delicious so try adding them to anything and everything.
