As we know nothing about your individual medical issues the advice your doctors have given to you, we are unable to say with certainty that this Fiesta Rice recipe is appropriate for you. For all that, because somebody marked it as `diabetic` it hopefully suggests that it at least complies with the basic consideration for the tag `diabetic friendly`, being low in carbohydrates and fat, and so should be better for you than the non-diabetic equivalent. Even taking that into consideration, this Fiesta Rice recipe must only be used In the event that you understand your own condition and are happy that the recipe ingredients are suitable for you. /pSTRONGFiesta Rice Recipe - Important Disclaimer/strongPThis Fiesta Rice Recipe is one from the STRONGdiabetic Rice recipes/strong section. Sadly it is completely out of the question for us to hand check each of the EMdiabetic Rice recipes/em to certify that all of them are 100% adapted for people with diabetes. Our diabetic recipe collection has over 2000 individual recipes in the collection, and to cook them all even at one every 24 hours would take far too long. Our advice is to read the recipe ingredients with due care to confirm that all the recipes are compatible with the nutritional guidelines your medical team has offered you. In the event that you think that this Fiesta Rice recipe is unsuitable for diabetics, let us know and we will withdraw the recipe concerned from our diabetes friendly recipe collection. /p
