This week on my blog for Diabetes Awareness Month, I am shedding light on this disease called Diabetes.
I hope that you have been enjoying and learning from my content on diabetes over the last few days.
Check out my previous post if you haven’t done so already!
This topic is important to me because my daughter was diagnosed in 2018.
Since then, I see so many people in my community affected by this disease.
I don’t like it.
I am using this week as an opportunity to shed light on the the disease, and to help those who have it, manage it.
Today I will be sharing with you 5 foods that you must add to your diet as a diabetic.
When I include these items into my daughters diet, she has better numbers!
Add these items to your diet or the diet of someone you love.
Let’s get into it!
They are a great source of fiber and because they contain a high amount of water, that helps to regulate the blood sugar.
My daughter has cucumbers often, with tad bit of ranch dressing. She loves it!
2. Keto Friendly Multiseed Bread
I get it from Aldi’s! It is vegan friendly. One slice of bread has only 9g of carbs, 5g of protein, 2g of fat. I love the bread and my kids love it too!
3. Little Salad Bar Salad Bowl Chicken Caesar Salad
I also get these salads from Aldi’s. They are so good! I have seen them before but Aldi’s is the cheapest.
4. Yogurt and Granola
-Follow the serving sizes on the back of the packaging.
-When choosing your yogurt make sure you look at the ingredients to ensure that there is no HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, Fructose, Maize Syrup, Glucose Syrup, Fruit Fructose, and Crystalline fructose.
-When choosing your granola, make sure you look at a few of the different types of granola that are on the aisle. Choose the option that you will find tasty but also has low carbs
5. Cinnamon –
One day I was reading my pops book on natural health. It is a thick book and I came across the health benefits of cinnamon and how it can help reduce blood sugars. I have found that it does help with keeping my daughters blood sugars leveled, when I include it in her diet. Maybe it can work for you as well. We use the liquid form from Vitamin Shoppe. I make what she calls a “tea” lol and she drinks the concoction with one of her meals.
There are many foods that I have added to her diet over the last year. And I am still looking for foods and recipes that will support me in meeting her needs of having low carb but delicious food!
If you are a diabetic, I would love to hear the foods that you eat to support you in having low blood sugars.
If you know of any low carb recipes period, I would love to hear from you.
