Diabetes & Carb content:

The chickpea tuna salad I prepared was 2R or 20g carbs. The carb content only comes from the chickpeas

👉 I used less than 120g of vegetables so it doesn’t count. (However, remember that 150g vegetables equals to 5g carbs or 300g vegetables equals to 1R or 10g carbs 😉)

👉 If you use canned sweet corn, remember to check the carb content.
