Quinoa, Great for Diabetics!

Quinoa, Great for Diabetics!

Did you know Quinoa is said to be not only diabetic-friendly, but beneficial for diabetics?          Here is an article that explains how! 

Some excerpts  from the article:

“When compared to many other grains, quinoa has more:

  • protein
  • antioxidants
  • minerals
  • fiber

It’s also gluten-free. This makes it a healthy alternative for people who are sensitive to glutens found in wheat.”

“Because of its high fiber and protein content, quinoa makes you feel full for longer.”

“Healthy meal plans for people with diabetes often focus on choosing foods rated at medium to low on the glycemic index. Quinoa is on the low end, meaning it won’t cause a spike in blood sugar.”

When I spoke with a friend recently about diabetes, he told me his mother eats quinoa and it keeps her sugar down and level.
