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:

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 incorporate chicken and turkey as the main protein in your food, as they are less fatty than beef and pork.
Healthy Eating Tip: Shop Wisely
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.
Healthy Eating Tip: Cook at Home
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!
