Diabetes Plate Method: A Visual Guide to Eating Healthy Food - Alma Health

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.

All you need is a little bit of creativity and a plate (23 cm):

Fill ½ of your plate with non-starchy vegetables

Salad mixed greens, such as lettuce, kale, arugula, and spinach
Bell peppers or hot peppers
Zucchini and eggplant

Fill ¼ of your plate with lean proteins

Lean beef
Salmon, cod, tilapia, swordfish, tuna

Fill ¼ of your plate with grains or starchy foods

Brown rice
Whole Wheat Pasta
Potatoes and sweet potatoes

Remember, the more colorful your plate, the healthier it will be! So go ahead, eat the Rainbow!
