I would like to begin by emphasizing I am not a doctor, registered dietitian or nutritionist. I am a type 2 diabetic employing a one day at a time attitude towards all aspects of my health. Anyone considering lifestyle changes regarding their eating habits should consult with their primary doctor, registered dietitian or nutritionist. In this manner, a plan can be made based on their needs for a healthy eating lifestyle. Everyone will have different needs. The ‘one shoe fits all’ theory can have far-reaching effects on individual well-being, especially for those of us suffering from diabetes and required to manage our sugar, carbohydrates, salt and fat intake daily. Your health is and will always be a priority. Please act responsibly before making any drastic eating lifestyle changes.
Smoothies Are On Everyone’s List!
If we conducted a poll, we would have a healthy cross-section of representation on the smoothie radar. There are fruit smoothies, vegan smoothies, green smoothies, herb and spices smoothies, nuts, and legumes to name some of the popular ones. Not to mention, smoothies and combinations among some or all of them. Everyone seems to have their slice of tasty smoothie paradise. My emphasis and I would like you to think seriously about the balanced meal plan focusing on fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein while making your tasty and diabetic friendly smoothie. We agree we love our smoothies. We have everything to gain by making our taste buds come alive and our bodies reap nutrients and health benefits! A balanced tasty and diabetic friendly smoothie offers a very reliable means of getting much needed daily nutrients at breakfast, lunch or dinner.
