What types of diet changes would you be willing to do if it meant being able to avoid cholesterol-lowering or blood pressure lowering medications?
This is an article from CBC that shares a perspective about how diet changes can improve our overall health. Vegetarian or vegan diets can be one route to support our heart health, and we need to consider our heart health when we have diabetes. I thought I would share this article as a bit of food for thought. You may not be willing to become vegetarian or vegan, but maybe there are aspects of these diets that you can incorporate into your daily life that would have beneficial effects on your health! Beans and legumes more often? One or two vegetarian meals per week? Trying tofu instead of chicken or beef in a stir-fry?
