There are lots of things dietitians and nutritionists disagree on. But one thing we all know is that people need to eat more vegetables – most people simply don’t eat enough of them.
Vegetables are a carbohydrate. But they are relatively low in carbs compared to say, bread, pasta and rice. Therefore, as a diabetic, vegetables are the best choice of carb to eat – if you’re hungry, fill up on all you can eat veggies!
Still, most people just think – ‘steamed broccoli or carrots’ – when they think of veggies. If you had to live on that it would be plain boring and I can see why it would be a deterent.
There are many tasty things you can do with veggies to make them enjoyable – like this cheesy veggie bake as an example.
This is the type of meal that works well with chicken, meats, or fish. And, it can be made ahead, kept in the fridge and even be frozen for a later date.

Cut carbs further – use asparagus, cabbage, or Brussels sprouts instead of carrots. Use srping onions or scallions instead of onion.
Super dairy lovers – add 1/2 cup cottage cheese and mix through the tomato mixture.
Cheats – use canned diced tomatoes instead of dicing fresh ones. 1 x 400 g / 14 oz can will do the trick.
Storage – keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Can be frozen in an aitright container for up to 3 months.
