ada-75th-anniversary-logo_247-horizDiabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it’s not controlled.

The vision of the American Diabetes Association is a life free of diabetes and all of its burdens. Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the main efforts behind the mission of the Association. American Diabetes Month® (ADM) is an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease.

Join the American Diabetes Association® to put good food and good health on the table during American Diabetes Month® this November. Whether you are one of the nearly 30 million Americans living with diabetes or the 86 million Americans with prediabetes, or you simply want to live a healthier lifestyle, the Eat Well, America!sm campaign will show you how easy and joyful healthy eating can be for everyone in Shingletown and the surrounding areas. Further information can be found at: http://www.diabetes.org/

Each week during November, the Association will share nutritious recipes selected by noted chefs and cookbook authors for every meal of the day, including snacks and special occasion treats. Not only that, but the Association will teach Americans how to choose, prepare, serve and eat healthy food that is both delicious and nutritious. From tip sheets to shopping lists, we’ll help make healthy eating a fun and easy part of daily life.

Looking to prepare a healthy Thanksgiving Day meal? The Association will include seasonal recipes and tips to ensure you don’t miss out on the autumn and holiday flavors you love.

Additionally, the Association will spotlight what healthy, simple and enjoyable meals look like on National Healthy Lunch Day, Nov. 17. On this day, the Association will show Americans how to “Lunch Right with Every Bite” and make better food choices to counter expanding waistlines, whether you are packing a lunch at home or purchasing lunch on the go.
