Frequently consuming food rich in sugar and carbohydrates can usually cause one's blood sugar or glucose levels to increase, which can lead to diabetes. Diabetes is one of the most rampant diseases in Malaysia among adults.
Diabetics usually refrain from eating large meals that may contains rice, pasta, sugar and desserts - unclean carbs. One of the most delicious and easiest way to include healthy food into their diets is through eating fresh vegetables and fruits, that are jam packed with vitamins.
While diabetics need to really watch their diet, that doesn't mean that they should totally avoid carbohydrates. Instead, their nutrition plan should include less "dirty" carbohydrates and more fresh vegetables and fruit.
Raw vegetables and fruits are not favourites of many. So how do we find a way to enjoy them? Juices!
