In a recent study presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Session, the study claims, “People who ate about two homemade lunches or dinners each day — or about 11-14 meals a week — had a 13 percent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes compared to people who ate less than six homemade lunches or dinners a week. Type 2 diabetes is a major risk factor for heart disease.”
The article went on to say, “In the current study, the researchers demonstrated that eating homemade meals was associated with less weight gain over eight years in these middle-aged and older health professionals. Overweight and obesity are risk factors for cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes.”
We all know how hard it is to find the time to prepare healthy meals, but the benefits truly are worth it. Even keeping organic lunch meats, fruits, vegetables, etc. make it easier for us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our family.
