HOW CAN THE KETO DIET HELP YOU?
The ketogenic diet (keto, for short) is a low-carb diet that focuses on foods that are low in carbohydrates and high in fat, essentially replacing the former with the latter. By increasing the fat and reducing the carbs, your body becomes more efficient in burning the fat for energy. This also increases ketones in the liver, which can serve as an additional supply for your brain. In addition, the keto diet can reduce blood sugar and insulin levels, and aid in weight loss with an appropriate exercise routine.
DIABETES DIET: WHICH FOODS HELP?
Type 2 diabetes is a condition with horrible potential effects on the body, yet it's relatively easy to control, unlike many similar medical conditions. A specific diet that suppresses high blood sugar (glucose) levels by limiting sugar intake can not only prevent diabetes symptoms, but also aid in weight loss, which is another helpful factor for those with type 2 diabetes. Avoiding saturated fats, trans fats, and sodium while increasing intake of healthy carbs, fiber-rich foods, and good fats can keep diabetes symptoms from becoming common and reduce risk of heart disease.

GLUTEN-FREE FOODS YOU CAN MAKE
Allergies to gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, can have varying levels of severity, from discomfort to impaired breathing or immune reactions from conditions like Celiac disease. What foods should you avoid if you have a gluten allergy? Anything with derivatives of wheat, barley malt, rye, or brewer's yeast. What does that mean? You shouldn't eat things like pasta, bread, baked goods, crackers, pancakes, beer, or sauces like gravy. The good news is we carry many gluten-free versions of those foods, so you don't have to completely cut those foods out of your diet.
VEGETARIAN RECIPES & FOODS
Vegetarian diets are becoming more popular, so we carry foods to provide recipes, meals, and snacks for vegetarians, those who have been prescribed a vegetarian diet by their doctor, or those with meat allergies. Cutting meat out of your diet does not mean you have to limit your food to an unenjoyable and restrictive level; you simply have to find comparable alternatives. We provide a wide selection of recipes, meals, and snack options to make eating a vegetarian diet easier and more enjoyable.
