Angel in need

Q:

I need help fixing my meals. I get so lost when I try doing it myself. How can I learn more?

A:

My first suggestion is that you meet with a dietitian. A dietitian can help you develop an eating plan that’s tailored to you, and can also provide you with suggestions, tips and recipes for meals. There are also a number of healthy cookbooks and meal planning guides that can help you with your meals. Joslin Diabetes Center has several cookbooks (visit their website at www.joslin.org/store, and the American Diabetes Association has a meal planning guide called “Month of Meals”, available on their website at http://www.shopdiabetes.org/101-american-diabetes-association-month-of-meals.aspx. Finally, look into nutrition and/or healthy cooking classes or programs in your community, either through your local hospital or adult education programs.
