Top 11 Healthy Foods for Diabetes Patients

8. Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is truly the most versatile and healthiest dairy product, and it has a much greater concentration of protein as compared to regular yogurt verities, along with being low in carbohydrates.

The impressive concentration of protein in Greek yogurt allows it to promote satiety for longer hours, which reduces the risk of blood sugar spikes.

However, it is important to consume plain Greek yogurt as opposed to varieties with artificial flavors, unnecessary carbs and heaps of added sugar. If you want to sweeten it up, load it up with berries, chopped apples or peaches, chia seeds, mixed nuts, pomegranate seeds and other fruits that you like.

9. Berries

Berries are the healthiest snack to satisfy your sweet cravings without consuming any harmful processed or added sugar. These colorful delights are loaded with antioxidants and fiber, which regulate blood sugar levels and aid in preventing the risk factors of heart disease.

We strongly urge you to enjoy fresh berry during their season, however, frozen berries are just as nutritious and offer the same benefits as fresh ones.

What’s more, they’re much more affordable, but make sure you don’t pick out frozen berries that are loaded with preservatives or added sugar.
