Juicy red strawberries are a delectable treat. If you’re diabetic though, you may think that you should stay away from these sweet fruits. Here’s some good news for you: they are actually beneficial for your health. There is even a growing number of studies that suggests how strawberries help in treating type 2 diabetes. To make the strawberries interesting, you can turn them into chips, which need only half cup of honey, half cup of water and of course, the strawberries in which you need 12. Here’s how to prepare:
1. Place honey in a saucepan and then add water.
2. When the mixture starts to boil, stir until honey is dissolved.
3. When done, allow the mixture to cool while you preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
4. Take the strawberries, which you should have already thinly sliced lengthwise and dip each one to the honey syrup.
5. Place the strawberries on a baking sheet and bake at low temperature for two hours or until they dry out.
As you bite into the sweet goodness of the strawberries, you also get loads of vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The fruits also come with anthocyanins and ellagic acid, which when together, they aid in the production of the hormone adiponectin. This particular hormone helps in suppressing your appetite, so you not only combat diabetes, but also reduce your total weight.
