Diabetic Snacks, Diabetic Indian Starters Recipes 

diabetic snacks. diabetic vegetarian snacks. When we think of snacks and in relation to diabetics, then they have to be healthy. For diabetics and healthy living, it's important to have small regular meals all through the day. By eating a big breakfast, lunch and dinner is not the healthy way to go. Break your meals into 2 to 3 hours and have some healthy snacks.

Diabetics need to snack often as they don't as by having a large gap between meals will cause a drop in blood sugar level. So eat small frequent snacks between your breakfast, lunch and dinner.

South Indian diabetic snacks

South Indian snacks, while being fairly nutritious are often not suitable for diabetics. Instead of Idli we have green moong dal and vegetable idli recipe where rice is replaced by wholesome moong dal and vegetables. 

Adai is a crisp golden dosa made of rice and mixed dal. We have modified this popular South Indian breakfast recipe to use broken wheat with dals to make a healthy diabetic adai recipe.
