October 5, 2015

Grammy Award nominated soul singer Angie Stone continues to be ‘fearless’ in her partnership with F.A.C.E. Diabetes.

Stone, a spokeswoman for the organization which stands for Fearless African-Americans Connected and Empowered (F.A.C.E.) stopped by an event held in Indianapolis over the weekend in an effort to encourage African-Americans with diabetes to take control and learn how to be better.

Supported by Eli Lilly and Company, and national and local health advocacy organizations, the F.A.C.E. Diabetes campaign implements a series of practical and sustainable programs, which foster behavioral and attitudinal changes in areas critical to success in managing diabetes such as nutrition/cooking, physical activity, health and overall well-being.

In November, just in time for the holidays, Stone and the F.A.C.E. Diabetes campaign will return to Indianapolis to host healthy cooking demonstrations with the Hebni Chefs, the creators of the Soul Food Pyramid,to promote nutrition and healthy eating habits among those living with andsuccessfully managing diabetes.

In a recent interview with Essence Magazine, Angie has this to say about her diet savior:

“I don’t drink soda or juices, or eat candy-I’ve never been a junk-food eater or a snacker. I have to be reminded to eat. I eat pretty healthy. I love my mom’s home cooking, but even then I’ll eat vegetables like collard and mustard greens or yams.”
