About the Recipe
Berries. Craving sugar? Eat a handful of berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are packed with vitamin C, flavonoids which boost your immune system while fighting inflammation. Flavonoids also help lower cholesterol levels. Berries are great in smoothies as well.
Chia Seeds. I love chia seeds. Chia seeds are high in fiber, calcium, and Omega 3 which can lower your triglycerides and raise your good HDL cholesterol level (goals of many people with diabetes). Check out this video I did on chia seeds.
