I just got an inspiring email from Roberta Arthur, and I want to share it with you!
Thank you for your continued messaging of FOOD! As a struggling two year diabetic (Type 2), I am always at odds about when to eat, when to exercise and when I can have a hobby or meet up with friends. Food is always a struggle. Just when I state my claims that I’m off all carbs, it’s broken as quickly as I made the claim.
I would like to make my own menu for 1-2 weeks at a time where it’s realistic for me. I know I have a couple of support people that I can run it through to make sure I’m on track. So much of information and websites that offer menus and such are usually for non-diabetics.
Once I got this message, my team and I got to work. A series about menus for diabetes has already begun to grace our newsletters. Have you seen Diabetes Breakfast Ideas and Diabetes Lunch Ideas? These are member-exclusive posts, and more articles are on the way in upcoming editions!
And here is a larger collection of useful diabetes resources, just for you!
- The Stages of Diabetes: A Guide
- What is Your Diabetes Risk?
- The ABCs of Diabetes Management
- The Diabetes and Cancer Link
- Diabetes and Your Heart
- Diabetes Display with MyPlate
- Diabetes and Weight Loss
- Free Chart: Diabetes Management for Best Health
Don't miss these fun diabetes quizzes!
And of course, there are earlier collections of diabetes materials too!
- Diabetes Month Resources (November is American Diabetes Month, btw)
- 12 Lesson Ideas for Diabetes
- Diabetes Education and You
Plus, I've dug up one of our most popular handouts for your perusal. Check it out!
Of course, who could forget these amazing diabetes materials...
