Diabetic Grilling Ideas

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and you know what that means, grilling. Grilling is one of the best things to do in summer, but it doesn’t always offer the healthiest eating options. Couple that with the complexities of diabetes, and it doesn’t allow you to eat everything at the table. What it does allow us to do though, is be creative. How about a diabetic-friendly Thai Turkey Burger? You can find the recipe for that and more at this website. For vegetables, meats, and even salad toppers, take a look at this site, and prep your grill for some epic eating!

Coffee Lowers the Risk of Diabetes?

In a recent study, researchers have found that coffee could actually lower the risk for Type 2 diabetes. However, we all know that coffee contains decent amounts of caffeine and too many cups of java can not only keep individuals awake, but also speed up his/her heart rate. I personally drink tea, and am not a coffee drinker at all. You can read more about the study and its findings at the CBS News website.
