20 Delicious And Healthy Foods For Diabetics
Vegetables in general are a great choice for everyone to eat, but especially people with diabetes or trying to avoid diabetes. Carrots are a great non-starchy veggies choice that are packed with vitamins, like beta-carotene, which can help lower your chances of developing type 2 diabetes.
Fish twice a week can greatly improve your heart health, and this light white meat is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This works to help your brain function and to lower blood pressure, and it’s an anti-inflammatory. If you aren’t a big fish fan, try some lemon pepper seasoning and you might just change your mind.
Flaxseed and flaxseed oil are great options in a diabetic diet. It has been shown to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, and even drop blood pressure levels. Add this seed to smoothies and cereal to get its great benefits.
Seeds are fiber packed and delicious. They make a great snack and a great addition to salads and smoothies. Try pumpkin seeds and/or sunflower seeds in a trail mix with dried fruits and nuts, or alone with some sea salt and healthy oils.
