A good diet plan plays an important role in controlling diabetes and controlling blood sugar levels. And a diet plan is not just about meals, it's about snacks too. People with diabetes can not afford not to eat anything for long hours. They need to eat small snacks from time to time to keep their blood sugar from going too high or too low. Sweets do not always mean foods with a high sugar content or added fats. In fact, there are many healthy and tasty snacks that diabetics can enjoy. Snacks can be a great way to keep your blood glucose levels stable, if you choose snacks that are high in protein, low in carbohydrates, low in calories and full of nutrients. These healthy snacks can help control hunger, while giving you a boost of nutritious energy. But keep in mind that the size of the serving, even for snacks, is also key to controlling your blood glucose level and avoiding weight gain. Here are 10 tasty and healthy ideas for diabetes-friendly snacks. Yogurt Yogurt, especially Greek yogurt, is a very healthy snack for diabetics. This snack full of protein and low in carbohydrates is a good source of calcium and contains very few calories. It also has the goodness of probiotics that promote digestion by adjusting the natural balance of bacteria in the intestine. Some other nutrients include B vitamins, folic acid, potassium, phosphorus and zinc. Greek yogurt also tastes good and can be eaten in different ways. You can eat 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt or the top half of plain yogurt with strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raisins or some nuts for a delicious snack.2. CeleryCelery is quite understated, but it is one of the best diabetes-friendly snacks you can enjoy at any time. Having a high fiber and water content, celery fills quickly and is incredibly low in calories, as well as in carbohydrates, fats and cholesterol. It also has the goodness of other nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K and some B vitamins, as well as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, folate and potassium. Celery is the perfect food to chew like a healthy mid-morning or a mid-afternoon snack. You can also fill it with peanut butter or cottage cheese, or dip it in guacamole or homemade hummus.3. Apples An apple a day is good for people who have diabetes. This low calorie snack is rich in soluble fiber, which can keep you surprisingly full for a long time. In addition, fiber slows down the digestion and absorption of fructose that is present in apples. You also get the benefit of vitamin C, phytonutrients, iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium found in apples. In addition, an apple can help satisfy your sweet tooth without increasing blood sugar. It's easy to take a whole apple to work with you to eat between meals. For added flavor, cut the apple and sprinkle some peanut butter on the slices, or sprinkle a little cinnamon powder to make it even more flavorful.4. Homemade Trail Mix Trail mix purchased in the store can be unhealthy, but if you make your own, it can be a healthy snack option.
