There’s nothing quite as filling or as comforting as a warm bowl of soup. But as a diabetic, many soups are off limits for being high in salt, carbs, fat, and other not-so-great ingredients.
If you’re craving a bowl of soup, you simply need to try a recipe that swaps out the unhealthy ingredients for plenty of vegetables and protein. And Coconut Chicken Soup by Diabetes Strong is a recipe that does exactly that.
With just 231 calories and 12 grams of carbs per bowl, Coconut Chicken Soup packs a nutritious punch. It’s filled with lean chicken breast, a satisfying protein, and an array of vegetables. In this soup, you’ll eat green zucchini, red bell peppers, and pumpkin. And all of these vegetables are on the ADA’s list of non-starchy vegetables that are great choices for diabetics. On top of that, these are excellent sources of nutrients, as they contain plenty of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
