Meal planning for Individuals with Type 2 Diabetes
by Beth Paul, RN
1. Macronutrients: what are fats, carbohydrates and protein. What are sources of each and what effect does each have on our blood sugar
2. Food is so much more than macronutrients: Understanding the experience of food. How culture and lifestyle affect our food choices. Food as a source of joy and entertainment.
3. What makes food taste good? Can good nutrition and flavor exist in the same dish? How does the appearance, smell and texture of our food affect our experience?
4. How to bring it all together? Considering the needs and preferences of each resident and the home as a whole when writing a meal plan.
