As a borderline-diabetic, with a long family history of the disease, I personally develop, test, and follow the recipes for the haute & healthy menu.
Each recipe is designed to help maintain acceptable blood-sugar levels, encourage weight-loss (two key elements in diabetes management), and provide a delicious, nutritious, and sustainable eating lifestyle.
For the best nutrition, we regularly choose simple carbs that offer the most benefits: fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods.
The parameters of this menu have been reviewed and approved my hautemealz.com’s Nutritional Advisory Board, which is made up of medical and nutritional professionals specializing in health, nutrition, and diabetic medicine.
haute & healthy Menu Targets
500-600 dinner calories

Fat: 20-30 grams
Carbs: 30-60 grams

These targets are based on a range of 1,500-1,800 calories a day, for slow and steady weight loss when combined with 150 minutes cardiovascular and twice weekly strength training to help maintain weight loss.
If you are a smaller woman or larger man, you may need fewer or more calories, respectively. Talk with a registered dietitian to get your personalized calorie profile.
