Some vinegar in your diet may improve your blood sugar Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo, discovered that the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar. Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control. See more info...
The easiest way to get the vinegar is by using an oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole wheat bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar
I was having trouble chewing the salads, so I took 3 carrots, 2 celery and at least a cup of spinach. Added a clove of garlic. My food adviser says at least a cup of spinach is so life giving. I chopped it in a food chopper and it was still crunchy, but easy to eat. Put a T of mayo and curry which I like. Switch the curry to something you like. I get a ton of raw veggies this way. I was telling a friend and she said she saw chopped salad on a menu recently. 174
When I go grocery shopping to make sure fruits and veggies are easily accessable I keep them out of the fridge when I put everything away and after grocieries are put away I wash, cut , dry, and bag them individually so that they dont go to waste! Plus this makes it easy to grab and go!
