Wellness Wednesday – Volume 2 – Week 46

Now that we have all “gobbled ‘till we wobbled”,  it’s time to get back on track to healthy eating habits and maintaining lifestyle practices that promote a beneficial outcome for our TRC family.  Our Wellness Wednesday tips come to us this week from our friends at Weight Watchers…

November is National Diabetes Awareness month.  Did you know that almost 30 million Americans have diabetes and an additional 86 million have prediabetes?

Since this disease is so common, and in many cases weight related, this week’s Wellness Wednesday features diabetes-related content to help you better understand the disease, how to prevent it, and/or reduce complications.

First, we begin with advice from the Mayo Clinic.  In Diabetes prevention: 5 tips for taking control, you’ll find key lifestyle changes that can help keep diabetes in check.

Second, if you have been diagnosed as prediabetic and wonder what your daily food choices should be, read I’m Prediabetic: What Do I Eat? for general guidelines about when and what to eat.

Third, for a diabetes-friendly recipe, consider trying Weight Watchers’  Sautéed Flounder with Mint and Tomatoes which combines mild-tasting flounder with fresh tomatoes, fresh mint, and basil for a delicious dish that’s only 2 SmartPoints per serving.
