Eating Wright: Cook your way to good controlBy
Healthy eating and nutritional support are valuable assets for people living with diabetes. Chef John Wright of Diabetes Management & Supplies uses both his culinary knowledge and his personal experience with type 1 diabetes to provide meal-planning support and cooking demonstrations.
In a recent cooking demo, Chef Wright prepared a Breakfast Burrito while DMS dietician Ellen Smith, RD, LDN, explained the nutritional value of the meal and how participants can incorporate the dish in a healthy eating plan. The breakfast dish features two very lean protein sources – shrimp and eggs – as well as vitamin-rich bell peppers and whole wheat tortillas.
