Did you know: Spinach is one the many green leafy vegetables that have been recommended by nutritionist over the years to avoid the risk of developing diabetes.
Millet makes a good substitute for rice if you are diabetic. Since Millets are high fiber content, it helps slow down the digestion process and releases sugar into the bloodstream at a more even pace. This helps a diabetic avoid sudden spikes in blood sugar. Millet also contains high quantities of methionine, an amino acid that is deficient in most grains, giving millet a valuable place in a vegetarian diet.
