Better ‘n Eggs Fit2Fight Campaign -Type 2 Diabetes Isn’t So Sweet

All White
The Better ‘n Eggs Fit2Fight Campaign means a lot to me because Type 2 Diabetes has not only affected my family, but my husband’s as well. Both our fathers are affected by the disease, and now that we have a daughter, we are more concerned than ever about stopping this disease in its tracks and finding ways to control and prevent it. We want our daughter to have her grandfathers around for a long time, but we also don’t want her to have to suffer the ill effects of this disease herself. The Better ‘n Eggs Fit2Fight Campaign aims at doing just that.

Better n’ Eggs Fit2Fight Campaign

With November being National Diabetes Awareness Month, there is no better time to talk about this disease and how it can be prevented. I have watched my loved ones not take care of themselves despite suffering from Type 2 diabetes, and as a result their health has deteriorated drastically in only a few short years. That’s why the Better ‘n Eggs Fit2Fight Campaign is so important in raising awareness of this disease.

 

Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs ® and AllWhites® – A Healthy Alternative

Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs ® and AllWhites® are fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low-calorie alternatives to shell eggs, yet are made from real eggs! Made from eggs whites, they have half the calories of shell eggs, therefore allowing those suffering from Type 2 diabetes to enjoy the foods they love without worrying as much about calorie count. Egg whites are also known to increase recovery time from hypoglycemia by building up adrenal glands, helping to regulate blood sugar.

Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs® and AllWhites® are convenient sources of lean, high-quality protein, which can help control hunger, keeping diabetics fuller, longer, and subsequently helping with weight loss. Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs® and AllWhites® can be used in any recipe that calls for eggs and are very convenient and versatile. Since they are pasteurized, fresh eggs whites, they can be eaten raw, and can therefore be used in recipes such as smoothies.

    Hi! I would like to join your campaign in fighting the epidemic of type 2 diabetes. I also lost a relative to diabetes about 22 years ago. Because of that experience I was drawn to natural healing to find ways to reverse type 2 diabetes, and as a way to pay it forward I have dedicated a website to Type 2 diabetes to help others find an alternative to dangerous diabetes drugs. My site is at: http://www.type-2-diabetes-symptoms-management.com

    I hope more bloggers would follow your lead & help increase public awareness about diabetes. Again, thank you!

  3. I clicked this post because of the awesome food photo! My granddad has Type 2 diabetes and it is not fun, thanks for the info and the link on the topic!
