About Eating Healthy

Healthy eating is an important element of diabetes management. While the first step is always to talk with your doctor or a diabetes educator about a diet plan that’s right for you, here are a few useful tips from Chef Leticia Moreinos Schwartz to get you started:

Use spices and seasonings instead of salt to help limit sodium without sacrificing flavor.
Try to incorporate chicken and turkey as the main protein in your food, as they are less fatty than beef and pork.
Ensure you select whole, fresh foods. Consider substituting brown rice for white rice and check out your local farmer’s markets to find a great selection of healthy fruits and vegetables.
This allows you to know exactly what is going into your food and better manage your diet. Plus, it can be a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy!
