Diabetes is a condition where your body is either not producing enough insulin or is not responding to the insulin produced. It you are a diabetic, it is imperative for you to be extra careful about your diet, for you never know what may spike your blood sugar levels. If you are looking to revamp your diet, make sure you add enough fibre and protein in it. Diabetics should also keep snacking from time to time to avoid blood sugar spikes. Of course, with snacking we mean only healthy and nutrient-dense snacks. Foods made with refined carbs could prove detrimental to your blood sugar levels.

It is easy-to-make and so fuss-free. What works for this recipe are its power-packed ingredients that are teeming with healthy dietary fibres.
