Tips & Tricks: Creating a Plate for Healthy Eating
Try different kinds of veggies
Getting bored of eating salad at every meal? Get creative with your veggies – steam, stew or grill them. Try adding veggies to foods you enjoy, like scrambled eggs.
Avoid fried foods
Grilling, steaming, stewing or sautéing with a small amount of fat (like olive oil) are better options.
Go for lean proteins
These include beans, nuts, fish, chicken, eggs and low-fat dairy.
Eat healthy fruits in small portions
Fruits are okay for most people with diabetes. Fruits give you carbs so enjoy them in smaller portions.
