What Does a Healthy Plate Look Like for a Person with Diabetes?

Last updated 4 years ago

Healthy eating is an important part of managing diabetes and keeping your blood glucose levels in check. However, it’s not always easy to know how to build a meal that gives you the nutrients you need. This video explains more.

Start by dividing your plate in half in your mind. Fill one part of your plate with non-starchy vegetables. Divide the remaining half of the plate into two sections. One section should be filled with healthy carbs, like whole grain rice, and the other should be filled with lean protein.
