Food For Diabetic Thought
How’s it going!
So something a little different today. I wanted to give you some food and snack ideas if you have diabetes. The following is a list that I have compiled that may help select healthy alternatives rather than negative feel goods!
Guava– Diabetics who received guava juice for four weeks experienced a reduction in glucose of nearly 25 per cent.
Figs– Figs are higher in fiber than any other fresh or dried fruit per serving, containing about five to six grams per portion of three figs. The type of fiber found in figs may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by slowing down the digestion and absorption of sugars in foods.
Asparagus– Just one serving of asparagus supplies almost 60 per cent of the daily recommended intake of folate, one of the B vitamins. Folate helps reduce levels of homocysteine, a substance in the blood, which at high levels can increase the risk of heart disease.
Additionally, one serving of asparagus significantly increased the action of insulin, which helps mop up excess blood sugar.
