It is not difficult to get all your nutrition as a vegetarian. It is a little trickier for vegan’s, but still very doable.

It is unlikely you will not be getting enough protein unless you are vegan and don’t eat legumes, tofu or nuts.

Chances are you will be getting enough protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12 provided you regularly eat eggs, dairy (or soy alternatives), tofu/tempeh, legumes/lentils, nuts/seeds, dark green leafy vegetables and vitamin C rich foods with most meals.

We can help you develop an eating pattern to ensure you include all these foods. We can use a computer analysis program to calculate your intake of protein, iron, zinc and any other nutrients you may be concerned about.

The recommended diet for people with diabetes is exactly the same as what is recommended for the rest of the healthy adult population.

A normal healthy diet encourages a reduction in highly processed food and adequate consumption of whole foods such as fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole-grains and protein foods. We use Mediterranean diet principles along with mindful eating and appetite regulation to ensure your eating behaviours are appropriate for managing your diabetes and also enjoyable!

We can also help you address any weight concerns. Click non-diet approach for love what you eat’s approach.
