03 Nov One place fat is hiding that diabetics should be aware of…
Did you know that adding just two tablespoons of olive oil to 150-calorie salad, turns it into a 600 calories salad. Wild ey? The reason this is important for diabetics to know is because excess fat lines the arteries and blocks the insulin receptors. This raises your insulin resistance and you’ll need to produce or inject more insulin for it to have an effect. All just from what should be a healthy salad.
Sooo… How do you make a salad without oil you ask??? Aha you make tapenade! Take whole olives blend them up with garlic and basil and you have a gorgeous dressing with exactly the amount of fat you need and you still get all the vitamins and phytochemicals that come with olives. It’s that easy!
Honestly… once you break the habit of needing oil on your salad, you will never understand why we thought to grease up a lovely fresh salad in the first place. It won’t make sense anymore. Once you adjust your thoughts you will adjust taste buds. Click here to try my delicious Diabetic Diet Salad.
