Sometimes you just feel like enjoying a gooey, buttery grilled cheese sandwich. However, if you have diabetes you know that the white flour and saturated fats in a traditional grilled cheese can have a negative impact on your overall health. That doesn’t mean that you have to give up on this option forever. By swapping out the white bread for a Flatout FoldIt, you can reduce the overall carbohydrates and increase the fiber content of the recipe, promoting healthy blood glucose levels. In addition, adding in a leafy green like kale can help you to cut down on the amount of cheese needed while providing an extra boost of fiber and antioxidants.
