My husband has just been told he is considered diabetic. I find all the information out there confusing. We can not afford all that fancy low fat, whole grain health food stuff. One place tells you to eat whole grain the next tells you not to. Canola is good for you then not. CONFUSING! What can we do to just get good information, help with picking the right foods that we can afford and is eatible and ask questions without costing us a months paycheck???

Visiting with your local Hy-Vee dietitian would be very beneficial, as they are a true food and nutrition expert. They will be able to assist you with meal planning that will not only accomodate your husband's diabetes, but your food budget as well. Each Hy-Vee has different costs for their dietitian services, use the link I have provided to search for the nearest dietitian and their services. http://www.hy-vee.com/health/hy-vee-dietitians/default.aspx

To clear up a couple of your questions -

Choosing whole grain is recommended, especially for those with diabetes. Whole grains will offer more fiber, and fiber is great for stabilizing blood sugars. Many times the whole grain option won't be any more expensive than the refined grain product. Such as brown rice, whole wheat pasta and whole grain bread.

Canola oil is a great choice, it actually has the healthiest fat profile of all the oils. It also is very reasonable in cost.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
