Diabetic Diet Plan - The Beginners Guide Healthy Eating & Keeping the Flavor!
My career exposes me to many individuals who have multiple medical issues relating to diabetes. Unfortunately, poor eating habits and mismanaging glucose (blood sugar) levels may have contributed to their poor health. Heart disease, loss of limbs, poor eye-sight or blindness, and kidney failure that requires dialysis, is common.
A year and one half ago my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My family immediately envisioned the worst as far as her future health. We knew a change in her eating habits would need to improve so my family committed to helping her with a lifestyle change.
Momma was raised in rural America where carbs and sugars were part of the staples of life. A common meal was meat (usually fried) and potatoes covered with lots of gravy, biscuits or cornbread lathered with butter, sweet tea, and dessert after every meal. And evidently, vegetables were not tasty enough naturally because equal parts of bacon or some kind of pork fat was always added.
Ironically, at that time my younger sister was dealing with gestational diabetes during her pregnancy so she volunteered to come over and “taste test” the new recipes I created, she’s always been helpful that way. After hours of researching the Internet gathering data and ideas, and trying recipes… I put together this guide to help Momma and others get started with their diabetic diet plan without giving up the delicious flavors of food… only the frustration.
