Diabetic Carrot Recipes
These diabetic carrot recipes are sweet and full of flavor! The health benefits of eating our carrots are numerous. So, throw some flavor on it and sprinkle some sweetness... and eat your carrots please!
Do you ever feel like you are constantly fixing the same side dish vegetable recipe? I often get stuck in the rut of having broccoli and cauliflower. It is nice to enjoy a variety of vegetables and I forgot how good zucchini is sauteed! The lemon, salt, pepper, and poppy seeds really make this dish pop. We ate the entire spread in one sitting. This dish was easy to make, low in fat, great for the Carb conscious, and delicious.
