This article from Everyday Health promotes six foods to fight diabetes or prevent diabetes. These foods are:
Cherries; I like cherries, but don't buy them very often because of the cost. Maybe that will have to change. Studies have found a significant difference with frozen cherries, and the benefits will be greater with fresh.
Black beans; I love black beans and I select them whenever I get a chance, but maybe that is not often enough. They are especially good with a little parmesan.
Boysenberries; Again I like Black and Boysenberries, (I am not sure of the difference) however they are so darn expensive. Sometimes you can find them at a park and then I really enjoy.
Blueberries; Here I have a problem, I just don't care for blueberries. I would much prefer strawberries or raspberries.
Sweet potatoes; Here the issue is the type of sweet potato. I really like the kind we had in Argentina, which are nothing like yams. I need to keep my eye out, because if I could replace regular potatoes with sweet potatoes every once in a while, I am sure it would help a great deal.
Blue corn; Here I have the biggest problem yet. I am not sure where you would get blue corn. However, I guess this makes an adventure. Because it is grown in Mexico and the Southwest, I think I will start with some Mexican super markets.
Health Is Vital
Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out.
