Top 10 foods for diabetics.
You love potatoes? Then try sweet potatoes. If you are diabetic, this is a better alternative for you than traditional potatoes. That’s because the glycemic index of sweet potatoes is much lower. They make the blood sugar levels rise less than normal potatoes. Have you ever tried making sweet potato fries? They taste wonderful – especially with a homemade tomato-date dip. Cut the sweet potatoes into thin strips, mix with olive oil, salt and pepper. Lay them out on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes at 220 degrees – turn after 15 minutes.
After baking, let them rest for 10 minutes with the oven door open and the oven off. You will find the recipe for the dip in the next post “Tomatoes”.
