Yeah, eating together. You picture a perfectly arranged table, delicious food, twinkling candles, and a warm glow of the room. Then finally reality strikes! You have one or two young children and a family meal is sometimes a stressful event. You need to juggle the desires and nutritional needs of everyone in the family and if you have children, you need to take into consideration about things that are appropriate for them. On the other hand, you don’t want to prepare too many meals, which can be both stressful and exhausting!
Type 2 diabetes (previously known as non-insulin-dependent or adult-onset diabetes) is a disorder that affects over 20 million people in the US. It is a chronic condition in which your body doesn’t produce enough insulin to metabolize sugar (glucose), and thus maintain normal glucose levels in the blood. It can be a precursor to Type 1 diabetes, and left untreated can be life threatening. Possibly the most dangerous aspect of the disease is that many people don’t know that they have it, and remain undiagnosed.
