Eat Well, Avoid Diabetes - Blue Ribbon Foods Can Help

I’m pleased to contribute to the Service Foods Newsletter, not only as a satisfied customer, but also as a registered nurse who can attest to the health benefits that Service Foods offers.

The food we eat can affect our health in a positive manner, specifically when it comes to avoiding one of the most common diseases in our country: Diabetes. As you may know, diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.

Type 1 Diabetes results from the body failing to produce insulin, while the more common form, Type 2 Diabetes, is the fastest growing disease among older adults. High levels of blood glucose is a big warning sign for Type 2 Diabetes. The best way to prevent Type 2 Diabetes is to keep our glucose levels low by watching our intake of sugary desserts and “bad carbs” like chips, white potatoes, rice and white breads.

But a big misconception is that we can no longer eat carbs at all. All carbs are not created equal and your body needs ‘healthy carbs’ to maintain good health and ward off disease. Whole grain carbs are loaded with nutritional value, and along with lean proteins such as beef, veal, lamb, pork, poultry and fish, form the basis for a healthy diet. Just make sure you choose whole grains, vegetables and fruits, rather than refined carbohydrates.

A healthy diet consisting of all-natural, quality foods, along with regular exercise, can significantly reduce your chances of getting Type 2 Diabetes. The food choices that Service Foods provides, offers you many options for maintaining a balanced diet and optimum health.
