As any diabetic will tell you blood sugar is really hard to keep even semi stable—it goes up and down and the balancing act can really drive you crazy! I personally don’t really need too much to fill me up anymore which means I have to eat many times in a day—not much but something. I searched the internet to see what snacks would be safe for a diabetic to try when they need something—here are a few that I found. Some I knew about-some surprised me!
Cheese- I kind of knew about this before but here are 2 brands that also have low
Calories but if you have to watch your sodium intake—the sodium is high!
I love Munster Cheese and a slice or two usually does not affect my blood
Mini BabyBell Light (hard cheese)
Laughing Cow Light (soft cheese)
Jell-O Mousse Pudding- I did not know about this one and you know I am going to give
this one a try (low calories/low sodium)
Fruits- Your best bet are berries!
Misc- Here are a bunch of other items you can snack on!
Veggie Chips or Straws
Dark Chocolate Squares (I prefer White or Milk-oh well)
Dr. Praeger’s little sweet potato pieces (I gotta try these!)
Whole Wheat Mini Pita Bread
Low Carb Tortillas
Yellow Corn Tortillas
Mini Filo Dough Shells
Mini Taco Shells
Oat Fit Oatmeal
Popcorn (air popped)
You can mix and match just watch the calorie content and the total carb content if you do
And always remember to take your blood sugar after trying something new; not everyone’s body will react the same way. Protein sources (Tuna, Roast Beef, Hamburger, Turkey, etc) can always be put (in moderation of course) into one of the bread sources listed above if you are trying to make a meal.
Always read the labels before you buy and when you combine to make sure you are not overdoing it!
