I start the series of true diabetic recipes with a very healthy soup. Diet celery soup is rich in magnesium and potassium, which work together by improving the work of the pancreas and normalization of sugar level.
I must mention that only the root of celery contains magnesium. The green stems have a lot of vitamin C, but none of the magnesium. This is why diabetics should use the celery root in the preparation of dishes. In this recipe, we use one celery root. Usually, it weighs about 21 oz. 3,5 oz. of celery contains 0,001 oz. of magnesium. Meaning, one serving of dish will have about 0,007 oz. of magnesium. And this doesn’t include the beans, cabbage, and carrot. The daily norm for a middle-aged person is 0,01 oz. That is, after having buckwheat for breakfast (the richest source of magnesium), and this kind of soup for lunch, you don’t have to worry about a daily norm.
