Put Down That Protein Bar and Opt for Nuts and Fruit Instead
People with diabetes know the importance of nutrition. Today let's discuss an eating strategy that can help people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes achieve their glucose or glycemic goals. It means eating more whole foods or foods that are not packaged or are very minimally processed. Instead of grabbing a granola bar or a protein bar as a snack, grab a handful of dry roasted nuts and a piece of fruit, like an apple or an orange. Instead of refined grains, opt for whole brown rice or whole oat. For sugar reduction, it could be as simple as choosing a plain yogurt with frozen berries over a fruited yogurt. Replace any sugar-sweetened beverages like energy drinks, soda, or sweet tea, and choose water whenever possible.
