Create Your Own Meal Plan

What is a meal plan?

A meal plan is a useful tool you can use to improve your diabetes lifestyle.

A meal plan is a guide that tells you how much and what kinds of food you can choose to eat at meals and snack times. A good meal plan should fit in with your schedule and eating habits.

Some diabetes meal planning tools can include: the plate method (food portion and proportion), carbohydrate counting, glycemic index (GI), that could help you to have an over view of your daily carbohydrate consumption and help you to manage your sugar blood level.

Whether you need to lose weight or stay where you are, your meal plan can help.

Build your own daily meal plan by choosing one breakfast, one lunch and one dinner, plus snacks if needed.

Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods in the right quantities to give you the nutrients you need for energy, and to maintain good health.

  • Wholegrains
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Lean animal protein
  • Legumes
  • Low-fat dairy
  • Healthier oils like olive and canola
  • Sweet treats in moderation

Including a variety of different foods and watching portion sizes is key to a healthy diet.

Fresher products = higher nutritional quality / processed products = higher energy for less nutrients!

People with diabetes can eat the same foods as their family and friends enjoy. Everyone benefits from healthy eating so the whole family can take part in healthy eating. It takes some planning but you can fit your favorite foods into your meal plan and still manage your blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol.
