Last time, we talked about the Diabetes epidemic and what you can do to prevent it or reverse it if you already have Pre-Diabetes or Diabetes.
Although it’s necessary to cut out all grains, sugar, and other starchy carbs like potatoes while you work to reverse the damage, don’t assume all you can eat is a salad every night. There are lots of healthy, low-acid, low-carbohydrate dishes that you can enjoy. And remember, once you get your insulin and blood sugar levels under control, you can add in nutritious grains like quinoa.
But in the meantime, today’s recipe is great for anyone concerned about Diabetes and also anyone else!
It’s a delicious take on traditional pesto that combines basil, parley, and mint served over spiralized zucchini noodles, an acid-free alternative to pasta for anytime you crave a bowl of comfort food.
