Eating out and diabetes
One of the greatest pleasures in life is to share a meal with family and friends, and having diabetes should not stop you enjoying sharing a meal away from home.
Obviously food choices we make away from our home table will be different to our usual choices – this is one of the intrinsic joys of eating away from home! How often you eat out is worth considering as it may influence the choices you make.Healthy eating has some basic principles – variety, portion control and frequency. For example, small portions of less healthy foods occasionally is fine; large portions all the time and there may be an issue!
Many food establishments have healthy choices available on the menu and with some clever choosing you can be eating beautiful food that works well with your healthy eating plan for diabetes.
