SOSCuisine: Meal Plans for Diabetes

In Conclusion

In conclusion, some supplements such as apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and chromium can potentially help improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes. However, the implementation of healthy lifestyle habits, including regular physical activity and a balanced diet, remain essential to optimise blood sugar control.

SOSCuisine offers weekly meal plans, all based on the Mediterranean diet, rich in fiber and omega-3s, and customizable according to allergies, intolerances, and individual preferences. Some meal plans are specifically designed for metabolic conditions. Should you need more support, we do offer consultations with registered dietitians, that will help you find the approach that best suits your needs.
