WHEN WE SAY HAMPERS FOR EVERYONE, WE MEAN EVERYONE.
Why should your diabetic friends and family have to miss out on the foodie fun? Simply choose one of our diabetic hampers which cater for a healthier, reduced sugar diet.
We’re pretty proud of the range of delicious products we have at Pretty Green and as a result we have hampers for anyone and everyone including hampers suitable for people with diabetes. When someone has diabetes their body cannot maintain healthy levels of glucose in the blood. Glucose is a type of sugar which is the main source of energy for our bodies. Unhealthy levels of glucose can lead to short term and long term complications.
We know that usually hampers for diabetes are not usually the go to present for a diabetic as hampers will usually contain an insane amount of chocolate and sweets, so much in fact that they would be terrible for anyone with diabetes. As well as sugar it’s very important to monitor carbohydrate intake, as carbs are also responsible for raising blood sugar levels.
All people with diabetes require different diets to maintain their health, it is not a one size fits all. At Pretty Green, we have some products that will happily suit most diabetic’s diets.
If you or someone you know has diabetes, then you would know how important it is to maintain a proper diet that is free from a lot of products. It’s a huge stress to be concerned about diabetes especially when ordering from a source you’re not used to and if you’re trying products you haven’t tried before.
Pretty Green can take some of that worry away for you, with some of our products already being good for diabetics.
Take a tea hamper for example. A perfect present for anyone with diabetes, as they don’t have to worry about their glucose levels in a tea! Pick out a traditional tea blend of aromatic warm spices that bloom from the beautiful brand T Totaler. An environmentally conscious brand, lovingly packaged with healthy and interesting blends, tastes, smells and flavours. Go one step further and put it in a beautiful hamper including some body scrub and even incense too.
Pretty Green has an amazing and nutritious plant-based Ulu Hye Hemp Mylk which would also be a perfect addition to a hamper for someone with diabetes. It’s a fabulous alternative to buying pre packaged nut mylk from the supermarket and is a lot better for the environment! It is easy to make, tastes delicious and saves on wastage, with all organic ingredients and nothing nasty. Absolutely delicious when put in a smoothie.
Some researchers also say that eating nuts can be beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes. Especially tree nuts like almonds, cashews, macadamias and pistachios among a few others. This is a result of a tree nuts ability to improve heart health in the way it can positively impact blood pressure. To easily include more nuts in a diet, they’re great to sprinkle on a salad, or put some sliced almonds in a yoghurt. Adding cashews or walnuts to main dishes at dinner adds delicious texture and pistachios are a fabulous snack. Pretty Green stocks plenty of delicious tree nut snacks that would be fabulous for anyone with diabetes. Including Wondaree’s delicious smoked macadamias. A perfect pre-BBQ snack, these fresh macadamias are coated with a blend of hickory that balances with the natural creaminess of the nuts.
