Choose This, Not That Diabetic Snacks
When sugary, fatty, or salty treats seem to be calling your name, it can be tough to resist them. With a little creativity, you can satisfy your cravings with healthy snacks for diabetes. Here we show you how to bypass some of the most tempting snacks while still treating your taste buds and boosting your daily nutrition.

 

Smart Ways to Satisfy Snack Cravings
Managing weight and blood sugar would be easier if we craved cauliflower, chicken breasts, and kale instead of cake, chips, and cheesy crackers. Although you probably won’t bypass every tempting food that comes your way, the more often you make a smart swap, the better off your health will be. Here we tackle some of the biggest snack temptations shared by Diabetic Living readers….

 

Choose Frozen Low-Fat Greek Yogurt Over Gourmet Ice Cream
Choose This: Strawberry frozen low-fat Greek yogurt (1/2 cup = 130 cal., 19 g carb., 2.5 g fat, 7 g pro.)

Not That: Strawberry gourmet ice cream (1/2 cup = 240 cal., 22 g carb., 15 g fat, 4 g pro.)

When you want a smooth and creamy frozen dessert, pass up high-fat gourmet ice cream for frozen Greek yogurt. This low-fat swap cuts the calories in half. Plus, frozen Greek yogurt is higher in hunger-satisfying protein and has gut-loving probiotics not found in ice cream….
