DIABETES LIFE EP5

Here I go again sharing to you my diabetic meals, hoping that it will help you to give some ideas specially for those who are fighting for diabetes type2. It is about more than five years now since I was diagnosed with diabetes and it is also more than five years now that I don’t eat white-rice. For all we know that we, Filipinos are used to it as a rabid white-rice eater. But there are so many alternatives such as, low-carb vegetables, low-carb rice like the brown one, or avoiding it, fruits like boiled saba banana, whole-grain bread, or just plain vegetables like what I have here.
