Diabetes Recipe: Chicken Salad With Homemade Ranch

If you have diabetes, you’ve likely been told repeatedly how important it is to follow a healthy diet. But what does that mean? Do you need to sign up for an expensive meal delivery service, or purchase one of the many diabetes “miracle cures” that are being advertised?

Definitely not.

Instead, it just means you should follow the same healthy, well-balanced diet recommended to everyone. Get lots of veggies, fruits, lean meat, healthy fats, and whole grains. Indulgences are still (mostly) okay, but moderation is essential.

And while that might sound simple, in theory, it can sometimes be a little harder to consistently prepare healthy meals without getting bored. And if you’re relying upon salads to get a healthy portion of raw vegetables, you might find yourself getting bored. Or, you might be falling into the trap of preparing a salad that’s less healthy than you think.

Between dressings, cheeses, meats, and other add-ons, you might find that you’ve unintentionally piled on the calories, fat, and even sugar. But never fear! We’ve got a delicious salad recipe for you from dlife’s Chef Michel Nischan that is delicious, healthy, and loaded with yummy toppings that are sure to leave you wanting to make this salad more than once!

Take a look, and make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!

Enjoy!
