Healthy Eating – Fibromyalgia, Bipolar and Diabetes


salad-652503_1920 (1)

Parts of this info came from “newlifeoutlook:

Healthy eating includes lots of fruits and vegetables. Cutting down on carbs, the bad carbs anyway. What they consider good carbs (low on the Glycemic Index) should be included in a healthy diet. So should some fat and of course proteins. Cut down on the salt.

Below are a few options and suggestions:

  • Bipolar – follow a healthy diet to help ease symptoms
  • Diabetes – watch the carbs, cut way down and I still have to find an actual collection of recipes that are Diabetes friendly
  • Fibromyalgia – certain foods are known to make it worse and some help. The body is craving vegetables. See the list below:

Foods to avoid:

  1. Any foods that are breaded
  2. Any foods that have added vegetable oil (olive oil is ok)
  3. Any foods that are wilted (lost their potassium)
  4. And foods that are fried
  5. Any high glycemic index foods (these cause inflammation)

Foods that will make you feel better:

Spinach

Arugula

Cauliflower

Mushrooms

Fresh melons

Olives

Cabbage

Sugar snap peas

Kale

Tomatoes

Carrots

Onions

Artichoke hearts

Lettuce

Broccoli

Jicama

Cucumbers

Celery

Garbanzo beans

Fresh berries

Fresh ripe fruit

Creating a healthy salad

  1. Either lettuce or spinach as base vegetables
  2. (2 cups equals 2 servings)
  3. Tomatoes
  4. 3-5 additional vegetables, add them in amounts of ¼ to ½ cup
  5. Add a fruit to the salad
  6. Add a protein, at least 3 ounces (could be chicken, beef strips, lamb, fish, eggs or any other type of protein)

If you are going to use dressing make it and olive oil and vinegar dressing. Other oils can cause inflammation.
