Keep your blood sugar levels in check by eating these foods
If you have type 2 diabetes, you probably already know that you can keep your blood sugar levels steady by focusing on the amount and type of carbohydrates you put on your plate throughout the day.

But did you know that another way to keep your blood sugar levels in check is to simply eat certain foods? Read on for the best foods for healthy blood sugar levels that will also make you happy and healthy to boot…

Foods that will help keep your blood sugar levels in check

Greens
Greens such as spinach, kale and chard are healthy, delicious and low in carbohydrates. Enjoy them roasted in the oven with olive oil for quick, crunchy chips, or mixed with roasted vegetables to add exciting texture. You can even serve them with lean protein like salmon.
 
Raw, cooked or roasted vegetables
It doesn’t matter how you serve them – raw, cooked or roasted – vegetables that are low in carbohydrates such as tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, eggplants, Brussels sprouts and squashes promote healthy blood sugar levels. They also add great colour, texture and flavour to any dish!

Blood sugar worries? 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!
 
When this research first crossed my desk I couldn’t believe it!
 
The latest blood sugar science shows that your body’s own safety mechanism is why your current blood sugar solution may be selling you short.
 
In fact, this research confirms that targeting only your body’s natural insulin and your pancreas to conquer blood sugar is like trying to douse a forest fire with a glass of water.
 
But this research has also led to some really exciting news for you—a breakthrough in blood sugar science that no one saw coming.
 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!

Berries and melons
One cup of berries or melon packs just 15 g of carbohydrates. These fruits also provide a healthy dose of fibre and other nutrients. They’re the ideal food to eat to curb a sweet tooth without spiking your blood sugar levels! Enjoy them plain or, for a different twist, mix both berries and chunks of melon with plain yoghurt.
 
Whole-grain, high-fibre foods
Whole-grain, high-fibre foods will stop you from overeating or eating the wrong foods. Try legumes like peas, lentils and dried beans. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a corn and black bean salsa with your favourite raw vegetables.
 
Healthy proteins
Last but not least, healthy proteins are essential to steady blood sugar levels. Try eggs, cottage cheese Greek yoghurt and lean meats. As a snack, try peanut butter, which is high in healthy fat and protein, on celery sticks.
 
These foods will ensure that you get enough carbohydrates without driving your blood sugar levels through the roof.
