Eat For Your Health: Diabetes


Every day, millions of people face a battle with diabetes. The Canadian Diabetes Association estimates that 3.4 million Canadians live with diabetes. Diabetes is ranked as one of the top causes of premature deaths, so managing the disease effectively is important. The good news is that diabetes can be managed effectively by simply tweaking your diet. By educating yourself on how different foods affect your blood sugar level and choosing the appropriate foods, you can use nutrition to manage the effects of diabetes.

This week’s meal plan is all about preparing foods that are low in saturated and trans fats and rank lower on the Glycemic Index. You will find sweet potatoes, lentils, salmon and other Mediterranean-inspired foods.

Follow this plan, make adjustments if needed and tag your photos #eatforhealth. Recipes are linked below.
