Health Tip: Choose Diabetes-Friendly Meals03/22/12
(HealthDay News) -- It may be a challenge to select
diabetes-friendly meals from a huge menu of options.
The American Diabetes Association suggests how to find healthy
meals for diabetics:
- Always ask what's in a dish and how it's prepared; request that
dishes be made without extra butter.
- Request small portion sizes, and eat your meal slowly.
- Skip high-fat dressings and toppings.
- Choose dishes that aren't breaded or fried.
- Substitute high-fat choices with healthier sides.
- Don't be afraid to ask for lower-calorie choices, such as
vinegar or olive oil, even if you don't see them on the menu.
- Don't drink too much alcohol.
