Dinner is quite often considered the main meal of the day. And no dinner is complete without a good tasty side dish! – It complement the main dish and makes the meal more filling. There are so many variations of side dishes, but many of them are full of carbs and fat, which makes it problematic for people with diabetes to enjoy such side dishes together with their family and friends.

Fortunately, there is still an abundance of side dishes that you can cook and enjoy without sending your blood sugar into the stratosphere.
