Diabetes is a word you never want to hear. The diagnoses can become a death sentence, but if you eat healthy, you can control your life and turn things around. I know, because my husband was diagnosed with Type II diabetes over a year ago. It was a struggle for us to learn how to manage this life-changing disease. It wasn't until I received the 2 Day Diabetes Diet written by ERIN PALINSKI-WADE, RD, CDE that we were able to look at other options.
- A two-egg omelet with onions and peppers plus yogurt for breakfast; a hearty bowl of carrot soup plus fresh fruit for lunch; meatloaf and broccoli for dinner with low-fat milk; and a cup of sweet grapes for a snack?
- Or Canadian bacon and spinach for breakfast with a cup of milk; vegetable soup and half a banana topped with peanut butter for lunch; grilled chicken and zucchini over pasta for dinner; and an orange with a cup of low-fat milk for a snack?
- A whole grain pancake with margarine, a peach and a cup of fat-free milk for breakfast; a whole grain tortilla with mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, mushrooms and onions for lunch; Asian steamed fish with vegetable sticks, brown rice noodles and vegetables for dinner; and a mango smoothie for snack.
