Find out how to build a healthy plate.
With over 30 million people in this country currently living with diabetes and 84 million people in danger of developing diabetes, something clearly needs to change. However, just by tracking your blood sugar and staying on top of your diet, you can reverse your symptoms and take back your life. Eating smart is vital when it comes to managing your blood sugar which is where this food plan comes into play. Known as The Great Plate Breakdown, all the meals in this plan consist of two cups of veggies, three ounces of lean protein, one serving of complex carbohydrates, and one serving of healthy fat. A sample day on this plan could include an egg white, sweet potato, and mushroom leek frittata for breakfast, lettuce wraps with Thai-flavored ground turkey, basil, scallions, and wild rice for lunch, and a satisfying dinner of whole wheat pasta with salmon chunks, avocado, and arugula for dinner. When you go grocery shopping it can be challenging trying to remember the amount of each food group you should be aiming for. Luckily, you can print the guide below and take it with you so you can make healthy choices on the go!
