Eating healthy food doesn’t have to be boring!

One of the first questions that patients ask when being diagnosed with diabetes is, what can I eat?

We, at Alma Health, are here to tell you, that with the right method, you can eat a variety of delicious foods, while keeping your sugar levels in target range.

The Plate Method is the easiest way to create a healthy meal with the perfect balance of vegetables, protein, and carbohydrates.

Tomatoes
Cucumbers
Bell peppers or hot peppers

Mushrooms

Fill ¼ of your plate with lean proteins

Fill ¼ of your plate with grains or starchy foods
