Did you know…
That those funny looking purple veggies in produce are actually packed with nutrients AND can help you if you have diabetes!!
Eggplant has antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which protect your cells from damage. It’s also high in natural plant chemicals called polyphenols, which may help cells process sugar if you have diabetes!
