For most diabetics, the most popular form of treatment for the disease is simply a healthy and controlled diet coupled with proper amounts of rest and exercise. Unfortunately, being a healthy diabetic is more than just avoiding a few excessively sweet or fatty foods, and remembering to take medication on time. If you are living with diabetes you know that maintaining a proper diet means that you must be watching what you eat and balancing out your blood sugar levels with one of the most popular types of food, carbohydrates. More than fats and proteins combined, carbohydrates have the most effect on blood sugar levels. Although it must be monitored carefully, diabetic food does not need to be boring, in fact, the more variety the better.
Although it might not seem obvious, the kind of diabetic food that lets people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar levels most consistently is actually the kind of diet that would benefit the well being of any person. The best diabetic food is those that are known as whole foods, in which fiber and nutrients are not diminished in the food by how it is processed or prepared.
The most helpful diabetic food includes almost all vegetables and fruits, as well as many dairy products like milk and cheese, and meats, poultry and fish that are especially lean. Just like anyone else, diabetics are also required to keep their intake of fats, sugars, and carbohydrates to a reasonably low amount. This type of eating not only helps keep blood sugar levels at a constant and maintainable level, it also promotes weight loss and heart health, which are things that all people are striving for. If you are interested in more ways that diet can be used to help control the symptoms of diabetes, and prevent further complications, consult with your doctor or a nutritionist.
Another important type of diabetic food that should most certainly be added to your diet is lean protein. The best lean protein can be found in high quality red meats, as well as skinless poultry and fish. Fish especially is a good thing to add to any diet, as it not only provides much needed protein, but also provides unique nutrients, called Omega 3 fatty acids. Although these fatty acids may sound like they’re bad for you, they’re actually very good for you, and help fight of several different types of disease.

Me and my shopping cart
Image by Ed Yourdon This was taken near the north end of Verdi Square, near 73rd Street & Broadway. I had watched this elderly woman slowly navigate her way from 72nd Street northwards, in no hurry at all. I guess she had been out shopping, though there was no real evidence of groceries or goods in her shopping cart. In any case, she shuffled by, and eventually disappeared up Broadway...

Moving into 2013, the photo was published in a Jan 14, 2013 blog titled "Placemaking blog series: The benefits of aging in place." ********************** This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan -- between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. I don't like to intrude on people's privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they're still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what's right in front of me. I've also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting -- literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I've learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture ... after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it's pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject. For the most part, I've deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don't want to be photographed, and I don't want to feel like I'm taking advantage of them. I'm still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We'll see how it goes ... The only other thing I've noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, *far* more people who are *not* so interesting. They're probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I've photographed ... but there was just nothing memorable about them.
Purslane--your friendly Omega-3 "weed"
Image by mystuart (on and off) Relates to posting nearby in my stream called "Invention". In case you don't know how to recognize this edible "weed", here's a closeup of a healthy patch. These are vigorous in my spring kitchen garden, because I've been growing them for some years and they re-seed. I gather the sprouts into one area and grow them for summer dining. As this useful reference tells us, they are beneficial in ways other than just our diet. A very ancient and fascinating plant. France has a tradition of using it for culinary purposes. Recently, a few adventuresome seed companies are starting to offer "improved" strains for sale. . . I just found such notices online. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portulaca_oleracea From Michael Pollan's IN DEFENSE OF FOOD, p 127: "Wild greens like purslane have substantially higher levels of omage-3s than most domesticated plants."
