💚Healthy Tips💚 

The American Diabetes Association advises people with diabetes to add dried beans or no-sodium canned beans to several meals each week. They are low on the glycemic index and can help manage blood sugar levels better than many other starchy foods. 

Several reserches say that beans like Kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, and garbanzo beans are all great for blood glucose control since they’re high in fiber and take a long time to digest.  

In fact, beans offer a lot of options.😊 They make a tasty side dish, or you can add them to salads, soups, casseroles, and chili. They’re also a great stand-in for meat because they’re high in protein but low in fat.
