Rev Run & Justine Share 5 Healthy Diabetic Friendly Recipes + Interview {VIDEO}

Did you know that Diabetes affects 1 out of 3 American adults?

I didn’t realize how close Diabetes was to me until it hit home when a close friend told me her daughter was diagnosed. Or a few years ago even closer when my cousin was diagnosed. Most people don’t even realize that the disease could be running through their family and need to take the proper steps to learn about their risk.

The following risk factors are most common for type 2 Diabetes:

  • Being aged 45 or older
  • Lacking physical activity
  • Being overweight
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Having a family history of diabetes
  • Being a member of certain ethnic groups (non-Hispanic Blacks, Hispanic/Latino Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives)
  • Having had diabetes during a pregnancy, or giving birth to a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds)

Rev Run & Justine

Rev Run & his amazing wife Justine are ambassadors for Novo Nordisk and the website that gives you a risk factor assessment so you can be educated on your health.

Last week, I got to sit down with Rev Run and his beautiful wife to chat about the importance of being educated and making healthy choices. Before we get to that however, we were treated to an amazing healthy eating cooking lesson from Top Chef contestant Chef Tiffany Derry.

She taught us how to make some fantastic easy healthy recipes that still taste amazing.

I think about it all the time. My father had it, and it is ultimately what took him from me way too soon. So, yeah, it's a scary thing to think about but too scary not to. xo

My brother was diagnosed with type 1 which was so scary. Type 2 seems to be on the rise! My grandmother got it but not until she was 80. I will do anything to prevent it!
