If you’re anything like me you know how difficult diabetes can be. Therefore it always helps when you can have some tips to make life a little bit easier. Today I will show you 5 great tips on foods you can eat to help lower your blood sugar levels. These foods may seem basic, but I’m sure you will feel a difference after eating these foods.
Carrots are high in vitamins and should be included in any diet. I’m sure as a child you heard the rumor that carrots could help you to see in the dark, but there is some truth to that. Carrots are great for your eyes and they will also be a great food if you are trying to keep your sugar levels low. Munch on carrots between meals, and always eat them raw to get the most value out of this snack.
2. Tuna fish
Tuna is super high in protein and low in sugar. You should be eating tuna at least once a week to help with your diabetes diet. You can eat it on a sandwich, in the can, or if you feel like treating yourself, cook up some tuna on the grill. It tastes great a bit raw with some wasabi sauce.
There’s a reason why the Italian are so skinny. Snack on olives instead of peanuts. This will help keep your weight down and give you the extra energy that you need without the high glucose.
In my opinion avocados are the most amazing food on the planet. They are so healthy for you and at the same time so delicious. Mix up a low-calorie guacamole by substituting yogurt for sour cream. Add onions, paprika, and a bit of thyme to make a delicious treat.
Okay, I know water isn’t a food, but it’s the most important thing you should be taking in for diabetes. Drink 8 glasses of water a day. I know it seems like a lot, but after you get used to it you’ll start getting thirsty more and more if you don’t drink it.
