Crunchy & Colourful Salad
red cabbage chopped
carrots and zucchini grated
edamame beans (pre-cooked)
goji berries (dried)
oil olive, flaxseed oil, dash of apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard and juice of half a lemon
Not only is this salad AWESOME for an office worker like myself, it doesn't have much effect on my blood sugar levels. There is only 1/2 a grated carrot in the salad, which doesn't have much sugar, and the goji berries (a handful if that) are not going to effect it much either.
In total I would give myself 0.5 units of insulin to cover the 5-10 grams of carbohydrates from the carrot and berries - and this type of lunch will fill you up and keep you going - no 3:00 slump with this crunchy, colourful salad mix!
