Diabetes Wellness Box

$49.95

Diabetes increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke and can eventually lead to kidney, eye and nerve damage. Changing eating habits can be the most challenging aspect of self managing diabetes. Part of that management includes the incorporation of more fruits and vegetables in the right amounts. Carbohydrates are the body's preferred source of fuel and offer a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that will protect your organs.

Your wellness box will provide fruits and vegetables with lower impacts on blood sugar, good amounts of fiber and rich in antioxidants to help reduce sharp increases in blood sugar which is what leads to further complications including blindness, neuropathy and kidney disease.*

Increasing your consumption of leafy greens (e.g., collard greens, kale and spinach) is another way to help keep your diabetes in check. Filled with minerals and omega-3 fatty acids, they help enhance insulin secretion and regulate your blood sugar levels. Eating a little more than a cup of these vegetables a day may reduce the risk of developing diabetes. They’re super low in calories and carbohydrates too!

For a person with diabetes, one way to select safe and suitable fruits and other high-carbohydrate foods is to check their values on the glycemic index (GI). The GI is a rating of foods on a scale from 1 to 100. The score indicates how quickly the food may raise blood sugar levels. The body absorbs high GI foods faster than medium or low GI foods.


Low GI fruits with a GI score of 20-49 are: apples, avocados, blackberries, cherries, grapefruit, peaches, pears, plums and strawberries.


Medium GI fruits with a GI score of 50-69 are: figs, grapes, kiwifruit, mango, oranges, raisins, and underripe bananas.*

More than 34.2 million Americans are living with diabetes and even more are at high risk for developing prediabetes or progressing from prediabetes to Type 2 diabetes every day. And, although in the past decade the annual rate of new cases of diabetes in the US has been going down overall, complications related to the condition have continued to increase. In addition, the rate of new cases among children and adolescents continues to grow as well.*

Tip 1: Fruit contains sugar and ultimately will affect your blood sugar. Try including fruits in between meals as a snack and pair with something that will not raise blood sugar. Ex: apples with peanut butter, berries with cheddar cheese
Tip 2: The key to enjoying fruit while managing blood sugar is paying attention to portion size. Aim for 2 servings of fruit per day (1 medium sized fruit or 1/2 cup chopped fruit or berries)
