Tip of the Day

For people living with diabetes, it is important to learn what foods have carbohydrates and how many of them you should be eating at each meal. A diabetes-friendly diet is not about total elimination but rather managing how many carbs you eat and how often. It can be frustrating with different people telling you what not to eat but a dietitian listens to find meal solutions that make sense for your taste preferences and lifestyle. Work with Sally to find the correct balance for you.
