Cooking your own meals is extremely beneficial for a variety of reasons, including that you have control of ingredients, which limits fat and provides portion control. And when you cook your own food, you are guaranteed freshness. But it is impossible to put together a meal when you don’t have any food in the house. Keeping the fridge fully stocked can be tough, especially if you have a busy schedule and often wind up throwing food in the garbage due to spoilage.
But just a few simple ingredients can go a long way. If you have certain food items in your house, you are guaranteed to be able to throw together a meal that is tasty, healthy, and diabetes-friendly.
