    Diabetes is surely a tough illness and there should be a serious meal plan and diet to avoid complications. It’s tough to enjoy the meal once it’s bland and as far as I know, food for diabetes is just not interesting and enticing enough.

    But you’re suggestion here is fabulous! I never thought that food for people who suffer diabetes could be that exciting! It looks yummy and I can’t wait to recommend it to my relatives who have diabetes. I also think that not only can it be suited for people who have diabetes but also for those who want to cut low on their sugar intake, don’t you think?

    Thanks for posting this! It’s great!
