MENTORS IN DIABETIC
Found 4 Mentors.
Why I want to be mentor: I have experience with multiple diets and restrictions. I do baking on the side and am familiar with gluten free diets.
Lesson Learned: Freshness is the key, I love the taste of natural ingredients with bold flavors.
Tip: I love grilling and roasting, They bring out the natural sugars of vegetables and add a whole level of flavor to the food.
Why I want to be mentor: Because most of the food out there reccomended for diabetics shoots my blood sugar sky high! So it\'s important to me to share with other type 1\'s what worked for me.
Lesson Learned: It\'s not about sugar free! It\'s about carbohydrate count + glycemic index. I\'ve also found that most recipes reccomended for type 2\'s and diabetics don\'t work for me.
Tip: If you have an unstable period of day such as breakfast. Develop a menu of options based on your blood sugar ranges. For example if I'm over 120 I go zero carb for breakfast. If I'm under 100 I might have a fruit morning.
Why I want to be mentor: The general public is so uneducated about diabetes and I want people to know that this has become an epidemic in our society. I can help change that by doing my part.
Lesson Learned: I\'ve learned that the best way to control blood sugars, is to eat smaller more frequent meals. Limit salt and don\'t let yourself dehydrate with high blood sugar.
Tip: Keep carbohydrates to no more than 35 grams per meal.
Why I want to be mentor: Because it is my goal to set the standard for American Healthy Food. Food that is Good For You.
Lesson Learned: Cooking food that is good for you does not need to be tasteless, there are ways to bring out flavor without compromising nutrition.
Tip: Extra Virgin Olive Oil is our best friend. Butter is not bad for you; only in small doses.
