A delicious starter made with low-fat butter, celery and garlic ground together to make an aromatic spread. Both celery and garlic are beneficial for diabetics. I have chosen celery for this recipe as it is very low in carbohydrates and is a storehouse of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron (which is required for healthy eyes, immunity and blood). Garlic on the other hand is helpful in preventing heart disease by reducing the occurrence of clot formation in blood (that can block the arteries). Serve it with your favorite soup or whole wheat pasta to make a wholesome meal.
