Stewed beans

Diabetes, a group of diseases that result in elevated levels of sugar in the blood affects a significant number of people on this planet. According to statistics by the International Diabetes Federation, about 415 million adults were living with diabetes in 2016. That number is expected greatly as the years go by.

Fighting diabetes starts with prevention and that means paying attention to what you eat. It means maintaining healthy body weight, practicing portion control, drinking lots of water and making healthy meals. Speaking of healthy meals. I have put together five recipes that are delicious yet loaded with nutrients to kick diabetes out. Let’s get to them.

1. Avocado salad

Avocados are green gold! For a healthy diet, use them in place of butter on your (whole grain) bread. You could also use mashed avocado instead of mayonnaise in sandwiches. Avocados help to keep blood sugar from spiking after a meal. See how to make this simple healthy avocado salad here... Avocado salad recipe.

2. Homemade yogurt

Yogurt is a superfood when it comes to diabetes because a lot of dairy could fight insulin resistance, which is the main problem with diabetes. It is rich in vitamin and protein and calcium which studies say may help people lose weight. And homemade yogurt is far better than store-bought plus it is ridiculously easy to make. You do not have to deal with added sugar and other added ingredients. Click here for the super easy recipe. PERFECT, HEALTHY AND CHEAPEST HOME-MADE YOGURT.

3. Sautéed greens

From spinach in America to fluted pumpkin leaves in Africa, green leafy vegetables are awesome! They are rich in fiber and low in calories and carbohydrates. See how I sauté my veggies here. The same technique I use can be used for just about any kind of green leafy vegetable.

4. Stewed beans

Beans are high in fiber and they are a solid source of potassium and magnesium. There are so many varieties of beans and they should be a part of every diet if you ask me. You can stew with some meat which is also good for fighting diabetes – as long as the meat is lean and does not fill more than a quarter of your plate.

Note: Use extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil as healthy alternatives to regular vegetable oil.
