  • Try these recipes to help keep your holiday feast a bit more healthful

    November is diabetes awareness month. It’s also the beginning of the holiday season of feasting.

    The following recipes are suitable for someone with diabetes or anyone who wants to eat healthier.

    Be mindful of calories and portion sizes. Remember that what you eat is only 50 percent of the weight management plan. The other 50 percent is increasing physical activity and strength building exercise.
