If you have diabetes, you are aware of making healthy food choices throughout your diet.
At home, you can plan your meals without any stress. However, at restaurants also you can feel better about ordering your favourite dishes with these two key pointers in mind:
* Words on Menus: You may already know sweet dishes can be loaded with sugar, but also look out for options labeled “BBQ,” “glazed,” or “sticky.” These foods may be high in added sugars.
* Foods made with a healthy technique. Scour the menu for dishes described as “baked,” “broiled,” “grilled,” “poached,” “steamed,” “boiled,” or “roasted,” Salsberg says. Be confident about changing your techniques: Fish poached in water or wine is better than poached in olive oil.
