Most of the people who have diabetes have the mindset that they have to ban all kinds of tasty food. They have to eat minimum, no delicious food, and so on. It is not the truth always. They can eat tasty yet healthy foods that will not increase their sugar level.

My mom has diabetes. After figuring out this disease, she almost changed herself. She started dieting, banned most of the foods, and ended up with severe weakness. Finally, She came to know having diabetes doesn’t mean starving. Doctors also advised to eat appropriately but keeping control on it is necessary. After that incident, my mom started making foods that are diabetes-friendly yet tasty. Here I am going to share 2 of those recipes with you.
