About eating healthy

Healthy eating is an important part of managing your diabetes. While the first step is always to talk with your doctor or a diabetes educator about a diet that’s right for you, here are a few useful tips to get you started:

Healthy Eating Tip: Reduce Your Sodium Intake
Use spices and seasonings instead of salt to help limit sodium without sacrificing flavor.
Healthy Eating Tip: Choose Leaner Meats
Try to eat chicken and turkey instead of beef and pork, as they are less fatty.
Healthy Eating Tip: Shop Wisely
Chose fresh foods whenever you can. Consider using brown rice instead of white rice and check out your local farmer’s markets to find more healthy fruits and vegetables.
Healthy Eating Tip: Cook at Home
This allows you to know exactly what is going into your food and to better control what you eat. Plus, it can be a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy!
