Fish is a good source of omega 3 oils which help in muscle and bone movements. If you are arthritic as some diabetics are fish helps with the movement of your muscles. Garlic helps with the blood. Tomotoes for vitamin C. Use garlic bread or a nice green salad. Even grate a little parmesan cheese over the stew for an extra special taste.
