Healthy Living: Eat Well!


If you’re new to diabetes, you may feel like your life is suddenly full of CAN’Ts: I can’t have this, I can’t do that….and it’s frustrating. Actually, though, your diabetes diagnosis can be a moment of empowerment. By changing your diet, you’ll be declaring your intent to become healthy—and what’s more awesome than that?

In many regards, a diabetic diet is really just a HEALTHY diet. You’ll be eating pure, natural, wholesome great foods—and that’s something everyone would be smart to consider! Instead of a chicken-fried steak smothered in cream gravy, enjoy a pan-grilled chicken breast, steamed broccoli and a salad—and know that you’re being a positive role model to EVERYONE, not just diabetics. This is a healthy diet that benefits everyone!

Diabetics need to take care to balance carbohydrates throughout the day—that’s crucial. But diabetics don’t need to eat special, exotic foods. If it’s wholesome and healthy, it’s probably okay for a diabetic diet. Bread and desserts are part of that diet as well! Talk with your doctor and your dietician and you’ll find that what you CAN eat is actually what we all SHOULD be eating every day.
