Eat To Beat Diabetes
The foods you eat and those that you avoid can have a great impact on manageing diabetes and preventing the health complications associated with it. Start by removing refined sugar, grains – especially those containing gluten, alcohol, conventional cow’s milk, hydrogenated oils and GMO corn, soy and canola products. Eat plenty of high-fibre foods with low glycemic load like vegetables, nuts, seeds, avocado and pulses. Include foods high in chromium like broccoli, green beans, raw cheese and grass fed beef. Choose wild caught fish for anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats and choose organic poultry, meat and dairy for protein sources. Use only good quality organic cold pressed virgin oils from olives, avocadoes, coconuts, and other nuts and seeds. You can experiment with diabetic-friendly alternatives to sugar such as xylitol, erythritol and stevia to find one you like and you can try to sweeten foods naturally with fruit or cinnamon.
You can make your daily diet even tastier and healthier by adding herbs and spices that also help your body fight against diabetes-inducing inflammation.
