When you are diagnosed with diabetes, several foods are prohibited to prevent the disease, its symptoms, and its effects from getting worse than they are today. Oftentimes, we think that it’s the end of the world. Not to exaggerate, but to be restricted from eating delicious foods is indeed grave. But for service providers of senior care in Minnesota, this is a fun challenge to go through with their senior clients.
Caregivers aren’t afraid to handle your senior loved ones with diabetes because they can cook them meals that are still delicious but would still be healthy and good for them. Why? Because they follow a plate planning called diabetes plate method. The diabetes plate method helps caregivers cook meals that only need a little measuring and weighing. How? Because of the ingredients they choose and the portions they put in. In diabetes plate method, the ideal ingredients or foods and portions are the following:
- 50% or half of a plate full of nonstarchy vegetables like cauliflower and eggplant
- 25% or a quarter of a plate full of protein like chicken (lean protein) and tofu (plant-based protein)
- 25% or a quarter of a plate full of complex carbohydrates like brown rice and sweet potato
