What can I eat if I have diabetes?


Do you want to learn more about managing your type 2 diabetes? Verdant is hosting a free 5-part series called “What Can I Eat? – A Series for People with Type 2 Diabetes” starting on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018 from 6-7 p.m. Sessions will take place Sept. 4, 11, 18, and 25, and there will be a follow-up reunion on Dec. 11, 2018.

Do you have type 2 diabetes and are you constantly asking yourself, “What can I eat?” It’s time to stop worrying! Living with diabetes doesn’t have to mean feeling deprived. Once you get the hang of eating a healthy diet, you can relax and dig in to a wide variety of delicious meals and snacks.

The American Diabetes Association has a program called “What Can I Eat?” to help support people with type 2. The program is not intended for recently diagnosed individuals – there are other diabetes education programs that explain the condition and provide a critical foundation for people with diabetes. The “What Can I Eat?” program that Verdant is bringing to South Snohomish County will serve as an opportunity for people to learn strategies from a professional and each other. Diabetes does not need to define you! Join us for this free program and learn more.
