FOOD FACTS

What is a Carbohydrate?

Carbohydrates – may also be called “Carbs”. Carbohydrates supply essential energy used by your brain, muscles and organs, and are found in fruits, vegetables, dairy and all types of grain-based foods. They are also found in sugar-sweetened beverages, juice, desserts and candy. Learning to balance carbohydrate intake is key to good diabetes management.

What is Healthy Fat? Healthy fats in small amounts help balance meals, increase satiety, add flavor and assist with absorption of some vitamins. Healthy fats are found in oils like olive, canola, soy, and sunflower; nuts and seeds; and avocados.

What is a Good Source of Protein? Protein helps balance meals, and supports muscle growth and maintenance, healthy weight, and satiety. Protein can be found in a wide range of foods, including meats, poultry, seafood, dairy, whole grains, legumes and beans. There is also a small amount of protein in vegetables.

5 Fresh Food Tips for Diabetes….

Learning more about food and diabetes will lower your stress and help you enjoy good food and good health. Follow up on appointments with a registered dietitian-nutritionist or diabetes educator to get personalized nutrition care, ideas and short cuts. Get started with these tips:

  1. Don’t skip meals or make big changes to food habits – eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, and perhaps a small snack if needed.
  2. Trade regular sweetened drinks like soda, iced teas or specialty coffees for sugar-free or low sugar versions.
  3. Enjoy more vegetables that are not starchy – salads, raw and cooked spinach, broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes – double up, or use half of your plate as your guide.
  4. Eat small servings of carbohydrate (carb)-rich foods like bread, pasta, and potatoes as part of balanced meals. Trade regular breads (90-110 calories/slice) for light bread, (45 calories/slice), explore whole grain sandwich thins, or high fiber English muffins for breakfast and lunch options.
  5. Save grocery receipts, write down what you like and what you eat for meals and snacks. Bring those receipts and lists to your appointments. Your healthcare team can review with you and support your smart choices.
