Seattle Mexican Eatery Creates Menu Good for Diabetics




 

With diabetes and obesity on the rise among American kids and adults of all races, one Seattle restaurateur is taking action.

Ramiro Rubio, owner of Galerias Gourmet on Capitol Hill, has worked with local health officials and a nutritionist to create a diabetes-friendly menu.
