Mediterranean Low-Carb Broccoli Salad
Broccoli, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and onions are among the non starchy veggies included in this salad. These foods are strong in fibre, which can help you feel fuller for longer. Healthy fats from olives and olive oil are incorporated, making this a heart-healthy choice. Olives and olive oil are high in monounsaturated fat, which helps lessen your risk of heart disease. Plus, the salad's creamy dressing is made with protein-rich Greek yoghurt instead of high-fat mayonnaise.
Chicken Veggie Stir-Fry
Stir-fries make it simple to prepare a diabetic-friendly meal. Carrots, broccoli, zucchini, and green onions are among the diabetes-friendly vegetables in this recipe. It also includes chicken as a lean protein option. To reduce saturated fat and cholesterol, it is recommended to purchase chicken without the skin.
Instead of salt, garlic, jalapeno, fresh ginger, lime, and reduced-sodium soy sauce add loads of flavour to this chicken and veggie dish. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, too much sodium, which is found in salt, can elevate blood pressure, raising the risk of heart disease.
If you want to increase the amount of carbs in this recipe, serve it over brown rice instead of white rice to obtain more whole grains. Blood sugar rises can be avoided by eating whole grains.
