Protein Power

Protein is a vital part of any diet. Proteins help heal and form new body tissues, meaning that without protein, we wouldn’t be able to function or exist. It is important that as diabetics, we only eat meats that are lean and low in saturated fat.

DO…

  • eat fish
  • eat turkey
  • eat around 2-3 servings of seafood per week
  • eat beans, which are a great source of protein for vegetarians
  • watch your nut intake, while they are high in protein, they are also full of calories

DO NOT…

  • eat deli meats
  • eat hot dogs
