What is pre-diabetes

Have you been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and not sure what to do? It can be quite overwhelming but help is at hand and you can take charge straight away by changing your diet and increasing, or starting, exercise. According to Diabetes Australia pre-diabetes means you have a higher blood sugar level than is normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

There are generally no symptons of pre-diabetes and it is diagnosed via a blood test. This particular blood test is a 'fasting' blood test (meaning no eating or drinking for 12 hours prior). It's easier to have this type of blood test early in the morning so you don't get too hungry!

There are ways to manage pre-diabetes and indeed, to reverse the diagnosis. The most common ways are:

- revise your diet by excluding sugary, high carb products like cakes, lollies, soft drinks and unhealthy take away food. Find some tips here on what to eat and what to avoid.

- increase or start, an exercise program. Choose an exercise you like, perhaps just walking to start with, and get started with 10 minutes a day and increase it each week until you're exercising approximately 30 minutes a day, most days.You can find some easy exercise tips here.

To help start your weight loss, or healthy eating journey we've recently introduced our 3 Meal per day Gourmet Box which gives you breakfast, lunch and dinner for 7 days. 

Enjoy!

Christmas is coming

Hi, it's Elly here and I'm madly packing christmas orders (so you all get your meals on time!) and planning my christmas day lunch - exciting but busy times! I love a traditional roast lunch on christmas day and I'm not a big fan of seafood, although I know lots of people are.

As I don't like plum pudding at all it's always fun to find something else for dessert. Last year it was fruit salad and frozen yoghurt - this year I'm googling low carb desserts and there are plenty around!

I'm not going away over the holiday period, instead I'm looking forward to a relaxing time to catch up on things and hopefully enjoy some sunshine - with plenty of sunscreen. 

Whatever you're doing I hope you have a fabulous time.

Elly

Coeliac Disease

All of our ready to eat meals are gluten free so we can cater to people with coeliac disease, as well as those managing diabetes.

Coeliac disease is an immune disease caused by gluten (found in wheat, rye, barley and oats). For people with this disease, the consumption of gluten causes inflammation and damage to the small bowel intestine. This can cause problems like pain, gastro, bloating, flatulence, vomiting and diarrhoea or constipation. 

It can develop at any age and affects approx 1 in 70 Australians but around 80% aren't diagnosed.

If you think you may have coeliac disease get along to your doctor, get tested and find out if you need to avoid gluten.

You can find more about coeliac disease here.
