Salad, Sizzling Tastebuds

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….


Karela Chips
