Fresh Fruit and Gourmet Gift Baskets...|
Our luscious fresh fruit baskets are filled with delicious seasonal fruit picked just for you.
We have partnered with one of the leading fruit companies on the West Coast,
appropriately named, The Fruit Company. Their fruit is harvested fresh from
their orchards in the Hood River Valley of Oregon, and shipped direct to the
recipient. The fruit baskets and towers arrive fresh and are sure to please and
satisfy the recipient. Great for birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, hotel
amenity gifts, healthy gift baskets, and much, much more. Click on each picture below to view
the extensive selection of beautiful fresh fruit gift baskets for all occasions.
According to www.diabetes.org, there are 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, who have diabetes. The total prevalence of diabetes increased 13.5% from 2005-2007. Only 24% of diabetes is undiagnosed, down from 30% in 2005 and from 50% ten years ago." With these kinds of statistics, just about everyone knows someone who suffers from diabetes.
Giving a diabetic a gift basket full of healthy foods is much more important than just providing "sugar free" candies and cookies.
In fact, carbs are the culprits because carbs turn to blood sugar and the "blood sugar" is what diabetics are most concerned about controlling.
If you don't have a lot of time when reading labels, simply look at the total carbohydrate in a food" says www.diabetics.org. "The total carbohydrate includes starch, fiber, sugar, and sugar alcohols. Using the amount of total carbohydrate will give you a pretty good number to use for carbohydrate counting. It is more helpful to check the total carbohydrate because it includes both sugar and starch. If you only look at the sugar content, you are not accounting for the starch in a food."
Some food items that work well in diabetic gift baskets are:
* olive oil
* maybe one sugar-free candy or cookie item
When you order one of our diabetic gift baskets, you can say you care without sacrificing quality or taste. Our gift diabetic gift baskets have been carefully chosen for diabetics and are filled with healthy and sugar-free or low sugar gourmet and snack products.
Diabetes is about 'table sugar' rather than an issue with 'Blood sugar'. In reality if it's not a protein, it's a carbohydrate and all carbs turn into 'blood sugar' in some form. Diabetics are concerned with carbohydrates that make blood sugar go up or down.
One of every five diabetics who enters the hospital does so because of foot problems--and often, it's due to diabetic foot ulcers. Proper foot care and avoiding diabetic foot ulcers is imperative for diabetics. Therefore, you might consider a pampering foot care basket. Some items to be included in a pampering gift basket might be:
* beautiful journal
* picture frame
* very soft towel
* soft washcloth
* travel pouch for carrying insulin
* back massager
* scented candles
* food diary
* stress ball
* thermal socks
* soft nail brush
* music CD
* inspirational book
Although a foot bath for soaking sounds like a great idea to use as a container instead of a typical basket, diabetics are discourage from soaking their feet so it's recommended that they not be used. You should also avoid pedicure tools or pumice stones.
