The Healthiest Snacks for Diabetics

Diabetes can have a drastic impact on our diets. To combat diabetes, it's important to eat a diet rich in protein and fiber. Finding new and tasty snack options that fit these criteria can often be difficult. Here are some simple and delicious snack ideas for people with diabetes:
  1. Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds are good choices. They provide healthy fats, fiber, and protein.

  2. Vegetables with Hummus: Raw vegetables like carrots, cucumber, and bell peppers paired with hummus can be a tasty and nutritious snack.

  3. Greek Yogurt: Choose plain, non-fat Greek yogurt, as it is lower in sugar and higher in protein compared to flavored varieties. You can add some berries for natural sweetness.

  4. Avocado: Avocado is rich in monounsaturated fats and fiber. You can have it on whole grain toast or as guacamole with veggie sticks.

  5. Berries: Berries like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are lower in sugar compared to some other fruits. They are also packed with antioxidants and fiber.

  6. Mighty Beans Roasted Bean Snacks: Mighty Beans are protein-rich beans roasted in the oven until they're perfectly crunchy and topped with a variety of delicious seasonings, like a healthy chip! We offer everything from edamame to chickpeas, and more. Browse all our healthy snacks here
