What Foods Are Good for Diabetes?


Non-Starchy Vegetables:

Load up on vegetables like leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, and asparagus.


Whole Grains:

Choose whole grains over refined grains. Options like brown rice, quinoa, oats, and whole wheat provide more fiber and nutrients.

Lean Proteins:

Opt for lean protein sources, such as skinless poultry, fish, tofu, legumes, and beans.

Healthy Fats:

Include sources of healthy fats, such as avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil. These fats can help improve insulin sensitivity and promote heart health.

Fruits (in moderation):

While fruits contain natural sugars, they also provide essential vitamins and fiber. Consume them in moderation and choose lower glycemic.

Dairy or Dairy Alternatives:

Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy products or plant-based alternatives like almond or soy milk.


Beans, lentils, and chickpeas are excellent sources of fiber and protein, and they have a lower impact on blood sugar levels.

Fatty Fish:

Salmon, mackerel, and trout are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory properties and are beneficial for heart health.

Sweet Potatoes:

These are a good alternative to regular potatoes and are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Non-Caloric Beverages:

Water, herbal teas, and black coffee are good choices to stay hydrated without affecting blood sugar levels.
