Supporting a Loved One Struggling With Diabetes

Supporting a Loved One Struggling With Diabetes | Diabetes News | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most challenging aspect of diabetes is the fact that it is not a temporary challenge, but a chronic one that touches the lives of everyone around it, radiating out from the person who lives with it into every area of life. The daily grind of living with this disease on top of the other stressors in our lives can lead us into periods of time when we cannot seem to complete all of the tasks we know are vital to tight management of our blood glucose, or other circumstances that fight against our desire or ability to do what is necessary to live well with diabetes. Sometimes people experience diabetes burnout and just cannot bring themselves to do what they know needs to be done for their care, or in some situations, there is denial about having the condition at all. Our loved ones see us tackling diabetes

Did you know that dairy cheese may be addictive? Many people who switch to a plant based lifestyle have the most problem letting go of dairy cheese.

 

Nuts are one of the best ways to ditch dairy as nuts are high in plant protein and rich in essential omega 3 fats. You can also use avocado and even banana to replace dairy.

 

Health Tips:  You can make delicious plant based cheese from nuts and seeds. Or you can now buy yummy plant based cheese in your healthy markets.

 

Both types are just as tasty as dairy cheese. You won’t really know how good it is and how great you feel until you make the effort.

 

Raw cashews, macadamia, almonds, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, sesame, sunflower and hemp seeds can be used to make all kinds of different plant based cheese.

 

Adding nutritional yeast to raw cashews adds an extra boost of cheesiness to dishes like macaroni and cheese.

 

Adding a teaspoon of a quality probiotic to your raw cashew nut and filtered water mixture will ensure your intestinal micro flora will help nurture your gut and re-colonize it with healthy bacteria.

 

Really great fermentation requires a strong probiotic and a warmer kitchen. Add garlic or other herbs to your own raw cheese.

Did you know that meat consumption is a risk factor for diabetes? When people are put on a plant based regimen their antioxidants increase and this creates a reduction in diabetes as meat consumption drops.

 

Health tips:  Consuming more plant based real whole food which is rich in essential fiber can definitely make a huge difference in lowering cholesterol, lowering blood sugar,  and lowering chronic diseases.

 

Begin adding more legumes (beans, chickpeas, split peas, lentils) in place of animal based. Fill your plate with sprouts, greens, add land/sea veggies and maybe quinoa or some other ancient grain.

 

With this meal you have all the protein, fiber, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to function well.

 

Find out why vegetarian women have less estrogen blood levels than do their animal based counterparts.
