Sweet beets and creamy goat cheese make a beautiful pairing with the nutty flavor of young greens. Mix up the flavor as you like with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. A splash of balsamic vinegar would add a nice twist too. Time-saving tip: Swap in canned beets! Just be sure to rinse them well if you can’t find a no added salt version.

During the holidays, we gather with friends and family to lavish each other with love...often in the form of food. As much as we all enjoy the sweets this time of year, they can be rough on our systems. That's true of everyone, but especially true of people with conditions like diabetes who need to watch their food carefully to manage their blood sugar safely. This year, why not show your love by adding in one or two options to help your guests manage their health?
