I Had No Idea These 15 Foods Won’t Affect My Blood Sugar

People with diabetes are constantly bombarded with foods they should avoid. So much of our diets seem to be based around exclusion, rather than inclusion, and sometimes it can feel like we’re required to deprive ourselves of all the foods we love the most.

All of that emphasis on what we can’t have, can often lead us to obsess over those foods. When we do this it usually makes us a lot more likely to break our good habits and overindulge in the things we know are going to send our blood sugar levels through the roof. And if there’s one thing we’ve heard a lot: it’s all about moderation.

What if we spend some time taking a look at some of the delicious foods we can incorporate into our diets without raising our blood sugar levels? Some of the foods on the list below can stand alone as delicious snacks, and others are yummy ways to spice up a healthy meal. Most even back some added health benefits!
