Managing Diabetes and Eating Healthy
When it comes to eating healthy for diabetes, there are a few things we want to keep in mind. We focus on getting consistent carbs from whole grains, fruit, and vegetables, lean protein from poultry, seafood, and eggs, and even stocking up on heart-healthy omega-3’s from seafood, nuts, and avocado. For more information, see our article about How to Eat Healthy as a Person Living with Diabetes.
7 Days of Diabetic-Friendly Recipes!
Before starting any healthy eating program, please make sure you follow a plan that’s right for you. We’ve taken a lower carb approach with this option, however, this diet is not for everyone. You can even follow this plan and have 1-2 carb serving sides (such as our 4-Ingredient Parmesan Roasted Potatoes or even Grandma’s Homemade Wheat Bread Recipe) to increase your carb servings for each meal. Please speak to your diabetes health care team before making significant changes to your diet, including starting this 7-day Diabetic Meal Plan.
