What you eat can make a difference!

Did you know that 40% of adults in the United States are expected to develop type 2 diabetes? You can make changes now that may help you prevent type 2 diabetes and related health problems in the future. Making healthier food choices is a great way to start! The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/ndep/index.html offers tips on how you can prepare healthy and delicious dishes for your family and friends. Visit NDEP's Healthy Eating and Cooking site https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/ndep/people-with-diabetes/healthy-eating-cooking.html today for healthy eating tips. Here are some easy tips to get you started the next time you go to the grocery store or local market:

Don't go to the store or market hungry. Read and compare food labels to make healthy food choices. Choose foods with fewer calories that are lower in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, sodium (salt), and added sugars. Focus on fruits and a variety of vegetables. Choose whole grains. Go lean with protein. Buy lean meats such as chicken and turkey. Remove the skin from poultry before cooking. Vary your proteins by choosing more fish, nuts, seeds, beans, and peas, such as pinto beans and split peas.
