Eating becomes complicated when you live with diabetes, heart disease, or chronic kidney disease. In order to make your life easier in the culinary department, here are some recommended foods and recipes suitable and beneficial to your condition.
What to eat... when you have diabetes.
Even with a serious condition, you can still live a normal life if you know how to manage your condition and diet with the right food and lifestyle. With proper preparation and ingredients, medical professionals suggest that the best food for diabetics are beans, oatmeal, fish like wild salmon, egg whites, nonfat yogurt, unsalted almonds, non-starchy vegetables, avocado, and others. I recommend this great Spanish Omelette recipe. Visit the link for the ingredients and procedures from NDEP.
What to eat... when you have heart disease.
Cardiovascular disease or heart disease is associated with any disease affecting the cardiovascular system. This kind of disease also prevents you from eating delicious dishes. However, to prevent any conflict with your condition, avoid foods loaded with saturated and trans-fats and salty foods to maintain a normal blood pressure. The best foods to eat in your condition are blueberries, salmon, soy protein, oatmeal, spinach, and other heart-friendly foods. Combining these foods is even better, so I suggest the Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon recipe from EatingWell.
What to eat... when you chronic kidney disease.
Chronic kidney disease is most commonly caused by diabetes or high blood pressure. It means that the patient needs to avoid more foods. Give up high potassium food that can further damage your kidney like bananas, mushrooms, and nuts. It is recommended to eat vegetables such as cauliflower, red bell peppers, onion, cabbage, and garlic, and fruits such as cherries, strawberries, cranberries, apples, raspberries, and cherries. I recommend the Fettuccine in a Low Fat Sauce recipe from Kidney Food to deviate from your usual menu.
What we eat affects our body, so let us always take into account everything we take in our system. In case that you are in conditions stated above, you must research beforehand the food you want to eat.
