Tip of the Week:
Grocery shopping can be time consuming and frustrating for those with diabetes.
Focus on shopping around the perimeter of the store to choose less processed and
more fresh foods (the aisles tend to have less fresh and more processed foods). Many fresh foods will not have food labels, so follow
these tips when shopping:
1. Place apple slices in a medium baking dish (about 9x9 inch).
2. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and oatmeal.
3. Cut in margarine until coarse. Add walnuts.
4. Evenly spread oatmeal mixture over apple slices.
5. Bake at 350 degrees. Half way through baking time, add water to apples and gently toss mixture. Continue to bake until oatmeal mixture is golden brown and fruit is soft (total baking time about 40 minutes).
6. Makes 4 servings.

aisles. Select products to complement the foods you have chosen from the perimeter.

In this issue:
- begin with the produce section, choose a variety of colors
of fresh whole vegetables and fruits,
- next stop is the bakery, this can be a tempting area but
focus your attention on whole grain breads,
- move to the meat department and choose seafood, poultry, and smaller
amounts of other lean meats,
- last stop around the perimeter is the dairy section - focus
on fat free and low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt.
