“Eating healthy is just as much about portion size as it is about the selection of foods,” said Lakeland Certified Diabetes Educator, Nicole Morrissey, RD. “Don’t deprive yourself of your favorite foods. Instead, try to incorporate them in a balanced way – be sure your plate includes plenty of non-starchy vegetables and lean protein. Don’t wait until the day of to think about what’s going on your plate. Healthy eating starts with a plan – make one and try to stick to it!”
