Changing Up Your Cooking Habits Could Reduce Diabetes Risk

March 1, 2019

It’s not so much what you eat as to how you prepare it.  According to a new study, changing your cooking ways will reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.  Instead of frying, grilling or baking your food (also known as “dry-heat cooking”), try to boil, steam or poach it.  Dry-heat cooking is known to produce advanced glycation end products (AGEs), of which high levels are associated with insulin resistance.  Examples of substitute foods include boiled eggs, poached chicken and beef stew.  A-1 Home Care has a talented team of caregivers who also happen to be great cooks.  If you suspect that your elderly loved one is at risk for Diabetes, call on A-1 Home Care for help!

Your Personal 24 Hour Chef & Caregiver

Live-in care can get fun and creative when you learn to cook differently side by side with a talented caregiver and chef.  A-1 Home Care’s diverse team of caregivers have years of experience caring for seniors with Alzheimer’sMultiple SclerosisHeart DiseaseDiabetesLou Gehrig’s disease and other conditions.  They have mastered the culinary skill of preparing delicious meals based on doctor’s recommendations.  One bite of a meal prepared by one of our seasoned caregivers will make you wonder why you didn’t change your cooking habits sooner.  It’s not as hard as we think, and the sooner we change our habits, the less restrictive our diets will seem.
