Wellness Captain Diabetes Meal Plan Day 7

Hello there! Looks like we’re at the end of our 7-days diabetes meal plan, so firstly I want to say: congratulations! We made it through a week of delicious meals, new recipes, quick snacks that are time-saving and affordable. If you missed the previous days, you can click here to get started.

I think the best way to end the week is to recap what we’ve all learned during the past 7 days:

  1. Diabetes-friendly meals can be tasty, affordable and easy to cook as well.
  2. Planning ahead gives you piece of mind.
  3. A balanced meal plan prevents unhealthy snacking during the day.
  4. You’re amazing for doing this!

I think the end of this 7-days diabetes meal plan can be a great start for creating healthier habits in general. Since Wellness Captain is dedicating to helping everyone achieve a better lifestyle, I’ll give you a list of useful resources for diabetes and not only at the end of this post.

For now, though, let’s check out what day 7 has in store for us!
