Seeds, wholegrains, fruit & milk help reduce heart disease, manage cholesterol, blood pressure, & weight & the risk for many diseases. Your diet should include foods from all the food groups: grains/starch, veggie, fruit ,milk, protein & healthy fats like Olive oil or avocado's. Milk & fruits cause slower rises in glucose levels. Eat low glycemic, what I like to call slow foods....& remember portion control cause if you overeat slow foods you can still get a high sugar count.

I cook Big Batches of main dishes once or twice a week--every weekend, and sometimes in the middle of the week as well. As long as it's a dish my husband and I like, we can coast through the week by raiding our own "fast food" supply--only it is really "slow" food, which we can grab fast!
