Having mental illness is enough! Tips for controlling your blood sugar.
Did you know by the year 2020 , 1 out of 2 people will have pre-diabetes or full-fledged diabetes? That is what the latest research predicts. Having a diet that includes beans, nuts, and quinoa is a good start to trying to improve your blood sugar. Beans provide a combination of soluble fiber and protein, which work together to help stabilize your blood sugar. They also help keep hunger in check. All beans work. Nuts are naturally low in carbs. They are a mix of protein, fiber, and healthy fats that keep blood sugar smooth and steady. Quinoa is a rich seed native to South America. It has twice the amount of protein compared to rice. Rice is so starchy, you get a sugar rush after eating it. The protein in quinoa helps to blunt that rise. It has magnesium, which is a top source for improving control of blood sugar.
