25 Diabetic Foods For Stable Blood Glucose And Overall Health

Sticking to a diet of diabetic foods is one natural way to help manage your condition and feel as good as possible all day long. If you’re tired of the cycle of eating foods that spike your blood sugar levels, this list will help you avoid those foods and crowd them out with better, more healthy choices. 1. Spinach and Kale Spinach and kale are very similar to each other in terms of how they’re handled by the body and the amount of nutrition they provide. Diabetics can enjoy as much of either one as they care for, and there really isn’t a huge advantage of one over the other. You’ll be getting both Vitamin A and Vitamin C from each, as well as potassium, magnesium, and iron. Baby spinach and baby kale are very much alike in terms of usability, each having their own taste which is their major difference. You can use spinach and kale interchangeably in green smoothie recipes, but kale gets the edge in the snack department because it’s so easy to make kale chips that taste great and won’t leave you filled with regret when you’re done snacking.

    I'm testing various food items to see if it has an effect on my blood glucose and is something I should remove from my diet. For example, I make SF pudding with HWC. Pudding mix reports 0 carbs and 0 sugar. BG was 80 prior to eating it. BG was 101 an hour after eating it. Serving size was 1/2 cup. Would this spike be enough to determine that I should not eat this much HWC?

    HWC is not really zero carbs though.. so it may be the carbs in that which caused a minor rise..also of course depends what was in the Mix...
    Maybe try just having the HWC (I sometimes freeze it for 45 minutes to make iced cream) and see if that causes a similar spike.

  3. A.S.McClain

    I have been testing too, and am also confused about how high a rise in BG should constitute a "spike." Double digits? Only if it pushes it over some number, like 105? For instance, one particular meal raised my BG by 25 points, but it remained under 100 - so is that meal OK to eat, or something to avoid?
