Cucumber Sprouts Salad | Easy Diabetic recipes | Salads

This week at Blogging Marathon we are headed for some diabetic friendly / healthy eats. First of this is a salad. Basically a no-brainer recipe, this can be made ahead and served as part of a potluck or even had thrice / four times a week. We have it at least twice every week. 

One neednt be a diabetic to indulge in healthy food, right ? :)

Basically for diabetics, the diet needs to be rich in  soluble fibre and fats - sugar - carb combo to a minimum. Proteins can be indulged in twice a week. Millets are most welcome to be included in place of rice or wheat. Some other diabetic recipes include....
