With Diabetes Awareness Week just behind us, it is a timely reminder of the need for us to eat well and stay physically active during this lockdown, particularly if you have diabetes.
Eating well is an important part of diabetes management, but there is no need to prepare separate meals or buy special foods — the entire family can enjoy the same healthy meals.
Also spending more time at home may mean we have more chance to experiment with preparing meals at home. Winter is perfect soup weather and you can often include plenty of vegetables to ensure you get your '5 veg a day'.
Check out Taste.com.au or https://www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/recipes for some great recipe ideas.
If you are concerned about the supermarket and want to avoid leaving home, there are some good online food delivery services available. They deliver fresh produce, fruit and vegetables right to your door. There are also meal kits like Hello Fresh or Dinnerly, as well as companies that will provide pre-prepared meals such as Lite-n-Easy, Katrina’s Kitchen, Dineamic or Meals in a Moment.
If you are concerned about your nutrition during this period or just want to get some more ideas to improve your diet, Connect Health and Community dietitians are available to assist you via phone or telehealth appointments.
