Foods for Diabetics
Learning to cook and eat healthier foods is all part ofmanaging diabetes. Foods for diabetics have to be low on the glycemic index to keep a person’s blood sugar from spiking throughout the day to dangerous levels. There are many foods that can be enjoyed that will not only fill you up, but also taste great, it is just a matter of doing some research. Take asparagus, for example, if you already love this vegetable then you are going to love to know that it is one of the healthiest foods you can eat.
Asparagus is a non-starchy vegetable and that is important. Many of the starchy vegetables such as potatoes need to be consumed sparingly as they are high in carbohydrates. Asparagus has healthy antioxidants, high in B vitamins and folate, which is great for cardiovascular health; it is also a good source of vitamin C, potassium, fiber and thiamin. It has no fat, no cholesterol and is low in sodium.
Any diet should include plenty of vegetables, and if you are planning meals for a person who is diabetic there should be plenty of healthy vegetables served each day.
