In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast we’ll be discussing diabetes and healthy plant-based foods. We briefly explain how the Glycemic Index (“GI” factor) works, talk about the factors that can affect the GI of foods, and how some aspects of a HEALTHY, BALANCED plant-based diet may benefit diabetics.
