 My first recipes is for those who are suffering from Diabetics. A healthy eating plan can help you keep your blood sugar under control. It  can keep  you prevent , control  and even reverse the Diabetes. Avoid foods which are high in sugars, carbs and unhealthy fats. Stick more to vegetables and high protein foods.  Some of Diabetic super foods are   green onions, cabbage, tomato, Fenugreek leaves, spinach, cauliflower, lemon carrot, tomatoes and many more. So for  Week 2 and day 1 of BM 60, am here with a healthy and tasty Cabbage Paratha. Healthy diet for the patients and a good way to feed kids who do not like cabbage.

This is a lovely idea to use for lunch boxes. Cabbage should help keep the parathas soft as well.
