We’ve heard it time and time again: an essential part of good diabetes management is weight management. And an important part of that is maintaining a healthy diet.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to follow a diet that looks much different from the same healthy, well-balanced diet that is recommended to everyone. Further, for most people with diabetes, moderation is what it’s all about. So, what does that mean?
It means you can still have a lot of the foods you love… just in moderation. Further, it’s a good idea to try to find healthy, diabetes-friendly modifications you can incorporate into preparing your favorite foods!
And that’s just what DLife’s Chef Michel Nischan has done!
Just because you have diabetes, it doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some nutty chocolately goodness every now and then!! In the video below, the chef teaches how to make his Nutty Chocolate Meltaways. Not only are they diabetes-friendly, they’re made with coconut, hazelnuts, and dark chocolate, which is full of antioxidants.
We’re pretty sure you’re going to fall in love with these low-carb goodies! Take a look, and make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!
