Health Tip: Choose Diabetes-Friendly Meals
(HealthDay News) -- It may be a challenge to select diabetes-friendly meals from a huge menu of options.
The American Diabetes Association suggests how to find healthy meals for diabetics:
Always ask what's in a dish and how it's prepared; request that dishes be made without extra butter.
Request small portion sizes, and eat your meal slowly.
Skip high-fat dressings and toppings.
Choose dishes that aren't breaded or fried.
Substitute high-fat choices with healthier sides.
Don't be afraid to ask for lower-calorie choices, such as vinegar or olive oil, even if you don't see them on the menu.
Don't drink too much alcohol.
