World Diabetes Day

Diabetes prevention starts in the supermarket. This may sound very striking, but it is actually true. Most industrially manufactured products – especially processed foods – are full of additives and preservatives and contain too much refined sugar. Products labeled as “light” or “fat-free” are particularly affected, containing excessive amounts of sugar. Often you cannot taste, how much sugar these foods have but one look at the label might surprise you. Anyone who wants to eat a healthy diet and reduce sugar consumption, therefore has to change their shopping behavior first and then their eating habits. With a Metabolic Balance nutrition plan, this is very easy because you will know exactly what you can eat and in what quantities.

Bitter Melon

Bitter melon is a tropical fruit-vegetable that is widely used in Asian cuisine. It has a unique exterior and has a crunchy texture similar to a cucumber or bell pepper but with a bitter taste. It is readily used in soups, stir-fries, and teas. Not only is it a unique ingredient but it also has some amazing health benefits. Check out the list below to learn more!

Broccoli

Did you know that broccoli is a true nutrient boost?

Not only is the full list of all the nutrients it contains very long but it is also considered a complete list. We know that everything that is in this valuable vegetable has been fully researched by scientists. One of the most important nutrients that broccoli contains is the essential trace element chromium. Chromium has a positive effect on insulin production, your blood sugar balance, and overall metabolism. Broccoli also contains the indirect antioxidant sulforaphane, which, when eaten regularly, is associated with a reduced risk of cancer and protecting the skin from harmful UV radiation. In addition to containing plenty of dietary fiber, broccoli has lots of vitamins C and E, provitamin A, potassium, calcium and iron. Due to its high content of coenzyme Q10, broccoli is also said to have a rejuvenating and anti-ageing effect.

Fresh broccoli is dark to blue-green, compact and firm. Since it withers quickly and loses its valuable nutrients, it should be prepared and eaten soon after harvesting – preferably within three days.

Important: The shorter the cooking time, the more nutrients are kept! Even consider trying broccoli raw in a salad or in a slaw!

Did You Know?

Diabetes is not just about sugar and carbohydrates. The disease is also associated with disorders of protein and fat metabolism. Therefore, individual nutrition plans for diabetics play an increasingly important role. In addition to normal blood sugar levels, with the right nutrition you also achieve optimized blood fat levels, normal blood pressure and a healthy body weight.
