  1. Fresh Fruit - Sweet tooth? Fresh fruit can help to satisfy that hankering for something sweet. Natural sugar is far better for you than artificial sweeteners found in many foods today. Keep portions in mind. Fruits are also high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals that aren’t found in other “sweet” foods.

  2. Whole Grains - It is recommended that people with diabetes eat a carb focused diet. Carbs can be great while some are terrible. Whole grain carbs are at the very healthy end of the carb spectrum. Whole grains have more fiber that helps to stabilize blood sugar.

  3. Non-starchy vegetables - Potatoes, corn, and peas are healthy and taste great but contain more starch and contain more carbohydrates. Veggies such as leafy greens and cruciferous plants are lower in carbs and calories and pack more fiber than the aforementioned vegetables.

  4. Healthy Fats - Fats are not your enemy. Fats from avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oils are heart healthy. Even fish high in fat such as tuna, sardines, and salmon have the added omega-3 fatty acids that promote heart health.
