I have a little confession to make. I am over 50 and just had an avocado for the first time. I LOVED it! Because I am on a journey to lose 80 pounds, I have learned a lot about healthy eating. When I was diagnosed with prediabetes, I learned even more!
In order to get healthy, lose weight and keep my sugar low, I have had to make many changes in my diet. One change I have made is eating healthy fats like avocado instead of “bad’ fats like mayo. Another is to eat a more vegetarian diet, which was surprisingly easy to transition to.
Eating Healthy AND Eating Bread? Yes Sirree!
Another change I made, which was a bit harder, was to give up starches. It is not recommended I eat white rice, pasta, potatoes or breads. But I love bread! I eat bread virtually every day. How was I going to give up something I enjoyed eating so much. Well, the way to do it is to not do it! Instead of giving up bread, I just had to find a bread that fit into my meal plans. That is why I made the switch to whole grain breads.
