People with diabetes constitute about 6 percent of the U.S. population, and many more or at risk for this disease. Can someone with diabetes follow a vegan diet? Absolutely! Are there benefits to using a vegan diet? Definitely! A vegan diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber and phytochemicals, particularly when combined with exercise and weight loss if necessary, can help to reduce the risk of developing diabetes. It can also reduce the risk of heart disease, a common problem in people with diabetes.

These menus make following a vegan diet easy both for people with diabetes and those who are concerned about developing diabetes.
