Grocery shopping tips for those with diabetes

The Dining with Diabetes reunion class met at Buehler’s last week to walk around the store with LeeAnn Miller, traveling registered dietitian at Coshocton Regional Medical Center. So what does walking around a grocery store have to do with managing diabetes?

Turns out, a lot. During the Dining with Diabetes classes, we focus on nutrition as one important component in a diabetes management plan. Some people are more comfortable cooking at home than others. And navigating the grocery store, with hundreds and even thousands of products on the shelves, can be overwhelming. Here are some tips that our participants walked away with last week.

Plan your meals before you go. It can be easy to fall into a rut of eating the same old things. Having a plan for the meals you will prepare helps you to stay within your desired count for carbohydrates. It also keeps you on track with your budget.
