Join us in celebration of National Nutrition Month with the theme, “Fuel for the Future”.
In this newsletter, we explore food sustainability while providing multiple strategies to address food insecurity. About 20% of people living with diabetes don’t have adequate access to predictable and healthy food. As diabetes care and education specialists, we can take a leadership role in our healthcare communities and on an individual level to make sure people know how to access food and make their dollars stretch when purchasing groceries.
Our first article dives into healthy eating while keeping the environment in mind. We include lots of additional resources to explore and share with your community.
Bryanna, our Director of Operations, details how she helped to create a community refrigerator that offers fresh fruit, veggies, and dairy products for people living with food insecurity. The end result is heartwarming and nourishing.
Coach Beverly provides ideas on maximizing a person’s purchasing power by choosing lower-cost yet super-healthy foods. In addition, this article contains lots of resources on plant-based foods and recipes that are easy to prepare.
We also celebrate Registered Dietitian Nutritionists with a spotlight on our expert Virtual Conference speaker, Ashley LaBrier, MS, RD, CDCES. Did you know that people with diabetes who meet with an RD/RDN have a 0.3 to 2% drop in A1C levels? Dietitians are evidence-based, caring advocates and some of my favorite people.
We hope you enjoy our nutrition-inspired Questions and Rationales of the Week for the entire month of March!
Wishing you a nutritious month,
Coach Beverly, Bryanna, Amanda, Andrew, and Jackson
