I finally came up with a Type 2 diabetes chicken soup recipe that tastes divine, is low in carbs and sodium, is super filling and one my fussy kidlets will actually eat.
I have had a hard time getting the kidlets to eat what I am now cooking. I don’t cook 2 different meals for the family and myself. It has proven really hard to get them to even try the food. Changing their tastes has proven a lot more difficult than I expected. My fussy eater, Koko, has been the least difficult in trying the new food and has taken to the change well. The girls…. not so much.
The chicken soup was a hit once they actually tried it. I’ll definitely be making this again. Using left over chicken meat works just as well, if not better.
