In my exchange list for diabetics, it has a list of free foods. These are foods that are low in calories and carbs, and should still be limited to 3 servings a day.
One of my favorite free foods is salsa (1/4 cup).... not with chips, I wish:)
I like to eat it on salads. Try adding some chicken, corn and black beans to a salad, along with the salsa. It is one of my favorites! It gives a nice flavor without all the calories and fat from many salad dressings.
I also like to eat it on a small baked potato, in place of butter and the works.
Try it... it is so good, and I don't even feel like I'm missing out!
Salsa does have sodium in it, so we should watch this intake.
It's a great substitute, and adds a little spice to the day:)
