Diabetes & Carb content:

👉 CARBOHYDRATE CONTENT:

✽ Glass jar of white beans (cooked), once washed and drained 54g corresponds to 10g carbs

✽ Pre-cooked beetroot, 117g corresponds to 10g carbs ✽ As a general rule 300g of vegetable equals to 10g carbs

✽ Have less than 50g of feta cheese otherwise might increase your blood sugar 3 hours after eating due to the Fat-protein index

✽ Glass jar of lentils (cooked), once washed and drained, 71g corresponds to 10g carbs

✽ 100g of apple contains 10g carbs (so if you use 30g of apple, it will be 3g carbs)

👉 To calculate the carb content of the protein salad, weigh all the vegetables you want to use beforehand and add however much carbs from the lentils, white beans or beetroot you want to eat.

Don’t worry about the seeds, they do not count.
