Fighting Diabetes
Replace Some Carbs With Good Fat…………………..

Monounsaturated fats like nuts, avocados, olive oil, and canola oil can help lower your blood sugar. Just avoid huge portions so you don’t take in too many calories. Add nuts and avocado to salads and entrees. Look for salad dressings, marinades, and sauces made with canola or olive oil. You can also cook with these two oils.
