Health Tip: Choose Diabetes-Friendly Meals

Health Tip: Choose Diabetes-Friendly Meals


(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.
