  • Packages Snack Foods

The goal should include staying away from unhealthy fats, liquid sugars, processed grains and other foods that contain refined carbs.

What type of fruit juice? You can go with an unsweetened 100% fruit juice. The best alternative is to go with a glass of water and a wedge of lemon and prioritize a healthy snack during a hypoglycemic peek.

The American Diabetes Association lists these as the top options:

  • Plant-based proteins such as beans, nuts, seeds, or tofu
  • Fish and seafood
  • Chicken and other poultry (Choose the breast meat if possible

  • Handful of Almonds
  • Veggies and Hummus
  • Avocado
  • Sliced Apples with Peanut Butter (or any other type of nut butter)
  • Beef Sticks
  • Roasted Chickpeas

What are good carbs to eat?

Speaking of fruit, berries (think: blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries) are an ideal fruit for people with diabetes because they tend to be lower in sugar and carbohydrates compared with other fruits. One of the best berries to eat are raspberries.

Here are 7 breakfast ideas to help you stay healthy and get on with your day:

  • Breakfast Shake
  • Muffin Parfait
  • Whole-Grain Cereal
  • Scrambled Eggs and Toast
  • Breakfast Burrito
  • Bagel Thins With Nut Butter

Try one the following healthful snacks before bed to help manage blood sugar levels and satisfy nighttime hunger:

  • A handful of nuts
  • A hard-boiled egg
  • Low-fat cheese and whole-wheat crackers
  • Baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, or cucumber slices
  • Celery sticks with hummus
  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Roasted chickpeas

Can drinking a lot of water lower your blood sugar?

Drinking extra water will not dilute your blood sugar levels if you are already fully hydrated. However, being dehydrated can cause blood sugars to concentrate and subsequently rise. Drinking water can lower blood sugar levels by diluting the amount of glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream.

What foods don’t raise blood sugar?

But there are things you can eat and drink that have a low Glycemic Index (GI). This means these foods won't raise your blood sugar and may help you avoid a blood sugar spike.

  • Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and chard
  • spinach
  • lettuce
  • collards
  • turnip greens
  • kale
  • Swiss chard

What can I eat when my blood sugar is high?

Here are 7 foods that can help keep your blood sugar in check and make you happy and healthy to boot.

  • Raw, Cooked, or Roasted Vegetables. These add color, flavor, and texture to a meal
  • Greens
  • Flavorful, Low-calorie Drinks
  • Melon or Berries
  • Whole-grain, Higher-fiber Foods
  • A Little Fat
  • Protein

Here are 15 easy ways to lower blood sugar levels naturally:

  • Exercise Regularly
  • Control Your Carbs Intake
  • Increase Your Fiber Intake
  • Drink Water and Stay Hydrated
  • Implement Portion Control
  • Choose Foods With a Low Hypoglycemic Index
  • Control Stress Levels
  • Monitor Your Blood Sugar Levels

Tomatoes?

Like other non-starchy fruits, tomatoes have a low GI ranking. One study in 2011 found that 200 grams of raw tomato (or about 1.5 medium tomatoes) each day reduced blood pressure in people with type 2 diabetes.

Is yogurt OK?

Yogurt can be a great nutrient-dense breakfast option or an easy snack. If unsweetened and Greek-style, it's low in carbohydrates and high in protein. This means it won't cause blood sugar spikes in people with diabetes, like other sources of carbohydrates.

What type of bread?

The good news is that most people can eat bread unless a doctor advises otherwise. However, it should be the right kind of bread. Whole-grain breads with high-fiber ingredients, such as oats and bran, are usually the best option for people with diabetes.
