Healthy eating requires focus on preparation

Eating healthy is important for all Canadians and one of the cornerstones of diabetes management.

March is Nutrition Month and the Canadian Diabetes Association is taking the opportunity to bring awareness about healthy living for people with diabetes.

Healthy eating and regular physical activity are needed all year round, but many are in need of a friendly reminder to get back on track.

“Placing the focus on nutrition and healthy living does not have to be a complete overhaul of your daily habits,” said Sharon Zeiler, of Canadian Diabetes Association.

“Simple meal planning and preparation will help you to produce healthy and delicious food.”

Zeiler suggests taking a few minutes each week to plan menus.

This allows people the time to schedule quick and easy meals during busy periods and ensure favourites are served more often.
