It can be somewhat scary to be told you have diabetes, but if you have the right knowledge, you can manage the disease well and still live a healthy life. In this article, there is suggestions and advice that will provide guidance for you to make informed choices about your care and enjoying a more healthy life. A great breakfast for a Diabetic is oatmeal! Be selective, though! Don’t buy the kind that comes in pouches and has tons of salt and sugar in it! Buy quick oats or regular rolled oats. Make it every morning for yourself. Top it with cinnamon and apples for a tasty meal!
Peanut butter is an excellent way to satisfy a craving for something sweet when you’re diabetic. It contains healthy fats and is relatively low in sugar, so grabs a spoon and dig in. Lick it like a lollipop and it will outlast any craving you have. Be careful if you put it on crackers or bread because you will need to include those carbohydrates in your daily counts. Fish is an excellent choice of protein for a Diabetic who is looking to lose weight. It’s full of Omega fatty acids which are great for your body, and the calcium in the bones (if you include them) can meet the daily recommended doses.
If you’re craving french fries but are watching your weight due to Diabetes, try sweet potato fries! Slice up a sweet potato and sprinkle salt, pepper, and other spices on it (Cajun spice mix also works well.) Bake it at 425 for about 30 minutes and you’ll have sweet, scrumptious fries to eat! You should only feel threatened about diabetes if you don’t know how to properly manage it. Follow the advice in this article, and tune into the fact that knowledge is power.
