To gain control over your diabetes, hold the starch! Here are a few delicious low-carb, high-protein dinner ideas to help you get started.
Whip together a low-cal, low-carb chicken salad with diced skinless chicken, reduced-fat mayo, a squirt of Dijon mustard for tang, minced onion and celery, and additional seasonings to taste. To cut out the starch, mound the salad on a generous bed of crisp lettuce instead of sandwiching it between two slices of bread. If you're looking for a twist on the classic, try mixing in some curry powder and frozen, thawed green peas (or sliced red grapes) for sweetness. This flavorful variation is sure to become a lunchtime favorite!
