This week on my blog for Diabetes Awareness Month, I am shedding light on this disease called Diabetes.
I hope that you have been enjoying and learning from my content on diabetes over the last few days.
Check out my previous post if you haven’t done so already!
This topic is important to me because my daughter was diagnosed in 2018.
Since then, I see so many people in my community affected by this disease.
I don’t like it.
I am using this week as an opportunity to shed light on the the disease, and to help those who have it, manage it.
Today I will be sharing with you 5 foods that you must add to your diet as a diabetic.
When I include these items into my daughters diet, she has better numbers!
Add these items to your diet or the diet of someone you love.
Let’s get into it!
They are a great source of fiber and because they contain a high amount of water, that helps to regulate the blood sugar.
My daughter has cucumbers often, with tad bit of ranch dressing. She loves it!
2. Keto Friendly Multiseed Bread
I get it from Aldi’s! It is vegan friendly. One slice of bread has only 9g of carbs, 5g of protein, 2g of fat. I love the bread and my kids love it too!
3. Little Salad Bar Salad Bowl Chicken Caesar Salad
I also get these salads from Aldi’s. They are so good! I have seen them before but Aldi’s is the cheapest.
4. Yogurt and Granola
-Follow the serving sizes on the back of the packaging.
-When choosing your yogurt make sure you look at the ingredients to ensure that there is no HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, Fructose, Maize Syrup, Glucose Syrup, Fruit Fructose, and Crystalline fructose.
-When choosing your granola, make sure you look at a few of the different types of granola that are on the aisle. Choose the option that you will find tasty but also has low carbs
5. Cinnamon –
One day I was reading my pops book on natural health. It is a thick book and I came across the health benefits of cinnamon and how it can help reduce blood sugars. I have found that it does help with keeping my daughters blood sugars leveled, when I include it in her diet. Maybe it can work for you as well. We use the liquid form from Vitamin Shoppe. I make what she calls a “tea” lol and she drinks the concoction with one of her meals.
There are many foods that I have added to her diet over the last year. And I am still looking for foods and recipes that will support me in meeting her needs of having low carb but delicious food!
If you are a diabetic, I would love to hear the foods that you eat to support you in having low blood sugars.
If you know of any low carb recipes period, I would love to hear from you.
On this lovely Wednesday, I wanted to share with you 4 strategies that you MUST implement in your GOAL PLANNING process right now to ensure that you bring what it is that you envision into fruition!
Strategy #1 “Your Goal must be declared in PEACE”
One of thing that you must understand is that our natural state is PEACE. Anything decision that we make not based on the foundation of PEACE was not made by us but by that emotional trigger.
For example, you have Kareem and Malcolm who are both “smokers”.
Kareem has been considering quitting smoking for about a month now. He went from smoking 5 cigarettes a day and now down to one cigarette a day. He decides that today is the day he will quit.
Malcolm is a smoker as well. Malcolm is up late night watching television and he sees a commercial taking about the negative affects of smoking. He decides to stop smoking right then and there.
Who do you think will have better chance of not picking up at a pack of cigarettes again?
My money is on Kareem. He decision was made in overtime, with thought, and while he was at PEACE.
Malcolm decided to quit smoking based off of his emotions that were triggered by a commercial. Normally decisions/goals made when emotionally triggered do not last.
Strategy #2 “Your Goal must be in harmony with others “
Listen, I know what it is like, to want to make it to the “top” so you can sh** on the people who did not believe in you. I am human. I have my list lol. However, your goal cannot be based selfishly on the well being of you and only your come up.
Your goal cannot be founded upon hate, fear, desperation, manipulation if your goal to have longevity.
I am the founder of 2 business right now. The Stand and Antinette Develops. The purposes of my business are to make money, however, more importantly I want to create jobs, fund opportunities, make dreams come true.
How do others benefit from your dream?
Strategy #3 “You must make time to act on the success of others “
It is a must that you help others reach their success. We cannot have a crab in a barrel mentality and think that we are going to reach the goals that we set for ourselves. I believe this strategy is my favorite. I love it so much I made a business out of it.
I do not believe that by helping your light to shine, I am somehow dimming my own. That is a poor mans thinking and she is not poor!
There has been plenty of times while I am helping someone else WIN I meet someone who can get me a few steps closer to my goal.
If you want to WIN. Help others WIN!
Strategy #4 “You must expect it to happen”
This strategy seems easy but it is HARD! If you come from where I come from. You have experienced things not working out for you, more often than NOT. If you want to manifest your ideal life, you have to expect that you ideal life is going to happen. It is not your place to worry about how it is going to happen or when it is going to happen. Just focus on the fact that it is going to happen for you. God wouldn’t place a vision in you that you were not able to manifest!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks message!
