Rev up your food and activity plans as the perils of winter [cold, snow, ice] fade away.Many look forward to the joys of Spring, green grass, flowers, birds singing, milder weather. Thoughts tend toward lighter foods—more fresh fruits and vegetables.  Those of us who experience cold seasons in winter,can increase the amount of our outdoor activities, i.e. walking, running, bicycling, etc.

This is a great opportunity for those of us battling diabetes to review both our physical activity and food plans.  Are there areas where we need to increase or decrease?  Can we increase our outdoor activity to a minimum of 15 consecutive minutes; or, can increase the speed/pace of our walk?  What interesting and new food dishes can we add to tempt our palettes while staying within our food intake targets?

Only you can take action on your physical activity.

I can aid you in food suggestions with the following tempting ideas.  Hopefully one of these will fit your food tastes and needs.
