November is National Diabetes Awareness month. Yes, the same month we stuff our bellies with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. I think it’s fitting to remind us BEFORE the holidays get started how important it is to be aware of Type 2 Diabetes and how everyone is affected by it in some way or another. Type 2 Diabetes is a preventable disease. It affects over 28.5 million children and adults in the U.S. By eating right and making exercise a part of your daily routine, you can lower your risk of diagnosis.

Better’n Eggs, a fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low calorie alternative to shell eggs, has teamed up with Bob Greene, Oprah’s Personal Trainer, to create awareness for Type 2 Diabetes in the month of November. Join me, Bob Greene and Better’n Eggs on November 16th from 8-10pm EST as we discuss Type 2 Diabetes, how you can prevent it, or how you can manage it should you be living with it today.

Better’n Eggs and its sister product comprised of 100% liquid egg whites, AllWhites, are a powerhouse of diabetic prevention:
-Both products are made from real eggs
-Both products have half the calories of shell eggs (25 calories per serving)
-Because they are fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie, both products allow those with diabetes or those trying to prevent diabetes to enjoy eggs without having to sacrifice other foods they love (i.e.: they can have cheese with their eggs rather than plain eggs)
-Egg whites can increase recovery time from hypoglycemia by building up adrenal glands
-Products do not include any added flavorings, so they won’t alter the taste of your favorite recipes or egg dishes
-Products are pasteurized fresh egg whites, therefore they can be eaten raw (i.e. in smoothies)
