Nutritional Comments: If you are thinking avocados which are full of fat are fit for diabetics- let me tell you avocadoes are very low in sugars and carbohydrates, have a generous amount of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin C and potassium (as high as 350 mg/serving) which play a major role in improving heart health, maintaining a healthy cholesterol profile, reducing oxidative stress and optimizing pancreatic secretions. All this naturally get your sugars in control. In addition, the tilapia used in this recipe is a very easy fish to cook and a delight to eat- high protein and calcium content with omega 3 fatty acids making it ideal for a snack once a week.
