Creating Healthier Diabetes-Friendly Meals
Learning to eat right when you have diabetes is not about following a diet plan; it is about living a healthier lifestyle so that you can adapt your healthy diet to any situation. With this short video from the American Diabetes Association, you can learn how to design your plate so that you get the right amount of nutrition with every meal.
You should split your plate and half and dedicate one half of it to non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, lettuce, or tomatoes. Then, divide the space of the remaining two halves between lean protein and starches. Visualizing your plate this way will provide you with optimal portion control at any meal.
