Non starchy vegetables should be the star of your diabetic diet – because they are the main type of carbohydrates you should be eating. So every meal should be loaded with a good portion of vegetables.
But eating vegetables doesn’t mean being stuck eating boring, drab boiled vegetables with no flavor. On the contrary, it means learning ways to use vegetables that are thoroughly delicious.
And believe me, there are many, many ways to use veggies!
Of course, we’re experts at this whole food and cooking thing, so here are a few mouthwatering vegetable recipes you absolutely must try.

There really are so many things you can do with vegetables.
Sure, you do have to cook them because obviously, vegetable dishes like these don’t come in a packet. That’s a big part of our problem, we want everything conveniently made for us.
But really, we were always meant to cook and eat whole foods, it’s just modern life that has led us in a not-so-healthy direction.
When you can get back to eating delicious and nutritious whole foods. You’ll be surprised at how much your health will improve.
