Dear Valued Subscriber,
you know that the
American Diabetes Association
recommends all people living with
diabetes make nutrition therapy a
part of their diabetes treatment
plan, but emphasizes that there is
no single eating pattern that is
best for everyone, according to
their statement in the October issue
ofDiabetes Care. We are not
one-size-fit-all? Where have you
heard that before?
Did you know that the
next hot supergrain, Freekeh (pronounced
"free-kah"), is not gluten-free, so
let's get that out of the way. It is
green wheat, harvested early on in
its growth. It retains more protein,
fiber, and minerals than more mature
wheat. While they are going to
promote the heck out of this, don't
buy the hype. This Middle Eastern
grain still contains gluten and
other wheat chemicals that make it
incompatible for humans.
had to choose freekeh over a regular
wheat product, we would choose
Freekeh. However, if you see it in
the store or on the menu, I would
still skip it and go for the quinoa.
