5 Best Snacks for Your Blood Sugar
Apple Slices + Peanut Butter
Apples are a good source of natural sugar, which is a type of carbohydrate. Dip it in peanut butter to provide protein and aid blood sugar control.
Cottage Cheese + Peaches
Cottage cheese, especially low-fat varieties, is a good source of protein that, when combined with fruit like a peach, can help boost fibre consumption and keep blood sugar levels in check.
Hummus + Carrots
Carrots are a low-carb, non-starchy vegetable that have little effect on blood sugar levels, despite their sweetness.
Yogurt + Blueberries
While flavoured yoghurt can be a sneaky source of additional sugar, plain, non-fat, or Greek yoghurt, which are high in protein and low in carbs, can actually help keep your blood sugar levels in check.
yogurt's blood sugar-friendly properties can be partially attributed to the probiotics, which could boost the body's ability to metabolize sugar-containing foods.
Almonds + Oranges
Oranges, with their low glycemic index and high fibre content, are another fruit that enters the American Diabetes Association's list of superstar foods.
researchers found that participants who ate 60 grams (0.46 cups) of almonds daily for 12 weeks experienced lower levels of fasting insulin and fasting blood sugar than those who ate the control diet.
