Spinach Brown Rice (Diabetic)




I'm always talking about sweets, and when you see people who are suffering from diabetes you have to take a step back and think twice. This term diabetes make me upset. I have met so many people who are diabetic. Diabetes prevents you from eating food which contains sugar - artificial and any normal source of sugar. Natural sugar from fruits, vegetables, and grains are healthy but only if you take them in a limited portion. Artificial sugar is big no no. Diabetes is a silent killer and it occurs due to unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, poor nutrients intake from natural food, and blood pressure. For more information you can visit and learn more about diabetes at http://www.diabetes.ca/

Now the question that remains is how to make delicious food, which has all of the flavor, taste and is something that you can enjoy? Don't be stressed out and feel guilty if you are diabetic. Every problem has a solution. You can eat the same thing as what others have in their plate, but in a different and healthy way.
