Diabetic Food Shopping That Won't Break a Budget

With prices rising, group offers tips that save dollars, make sense

SUNDAY, April 13 (HealthDay News) -- Rising food prices may have people with diabetes and their caregivers wondering if they'll be able to afford a healthy diabetes meal plan. But it's a misconception that these plans have to be costly and consist of high-priced, specialty foods, the American Diabetes Association says.

"Eating well and spending less are not mutually exclusive," Ann Albright, president of health care and education at the ADA, said in a prepared statement. "In fact, healthier foods can actually save you money by reducing portion sizes and buying fewer high-calorie, high-priced foods."

The ADA offers the following advice:

  • Special "dietetic or diabetic" foods are costly and not necessary.
  • Boneless cuts of meat are often a better buy, since you're not paying for the weight of the bone.
  • There's no nutritional difference between white eggs and brown eggs, which are more expensive.
  • Not only do vegetables frozen in butter sauce cost twice as much as plain frozen vegetables, they have more calories.
  • Instead of buying small containers of yogurt, buy a quart and separate it into one-cup servings yourself.
  • You can save a lot of money if you don't buy individually packaged snacks.
  • When buying fruit, consider the cost per edible serving. If you're paying by the pound, you'll be paying for the weight of inedible seeds and rinds.
  • If fresh fruit is too expensive, buy frozen or canned fruit packed in water. If you buy fruit canned in syrup, rinse it before eating.
  • Use nonfat dry milk for drinking, cooking and baking. It's inexpensive and has a long shelf life.
  • You can make your own cooking spray by putting vegetable oil in a spray bottle.
  • Use regular or quick-cooking oats rather than instant oats, which are much more expensiv
