Free foods have less than 20 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrate per serving. Find out how to use these low-calorie and low-carb foods as healthy diabetic snacks to get you through between-meal cravings or add flavor to dishes.

Free Foods for People with Diabetes

When you have the munchies but no calories or carbohydrate grams to spare, get your fix with a free-food snack. A free food, as defined by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), is any food, drink, condiment, or seasoning that contains less than 20 calories and 5 grams or less of carb per serving……..

 

Lemon-Pepper Cucumbers

When you need a refreshing low-calorie snack, nibble on 1/2 cup of sliced cucumbers for just 8 calories and 2 grams of carb.

Taste treat: Drizzle a bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper over the cucumber slices. Both count as free in the moderate amounts typically used for flavoring foods…….

 

Basil Tomatoes

If you’re a tomato fan, the cherry-size orbs are perfect for guilt-free nibbling. You can enjoy a snack of 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes for just 13 calories and 2 grams of carb.

Taste treat: For added flavor, sprinkle fresh minced basil or dried basil (a free seasoning) over cherry tomato halves…….

 

Almondy Coffee

If you want a creamy, milklike beverage but can’t afford the calories or carbs, pour yourself 1/2 cup (4 ounces) of Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla nondairy beverage for just 20 calories and 1 gram of carb.

Taste treat: Add a splash of Almond Breeze to your black coffee (also considered a free food) and skip typical processed creamers. Many nondairy coffee creamers contain small amounts of harmful trans fat, often labeled as partially hydrogenated oil in the ingredients list…..

22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

From the Diabetic Living Online website its 22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes. Very good article on the foods to avoid with Diabetes and tips on still having your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with satisfying and delicious alternatives. Read the entire article at the Diabetic Living Online website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 

22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

These top food offenders contain high amounts of fat, sodium, carbs, and calories that may increase your risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, uncontrolled blood sugar, and weight gain. The good news is you can indulge in your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with our satisfying and delicious alternatives.

 

Think Twice Before Eating These Foods

At Diabetic Living, we believe that eating with diabetes doesn’t have to mean deprivation, starvation, or bland and boring foods. However, some foods really are best left on the table or in the store. Everyone — with diabetes or without — would be wise to avoid or limit the foods on this list because they are high in saturated fat, sodium, calories, or carbs, or might contain trans fats. High amounts of sodium and saturated fat can lead to heart disease, while excess sugars, high carb counts, and added calories can cause unwanted weight gain and blood sugar spikes………

 

Nachos

You walk into a restaurant and you’re feeling starved. A quick scan of the menu and there they are: nachos, one of your favorites. You order them as an appetizer and also order a meal. Unfortunately, most restaurant nacho orders equate to and often exceed an entire meal’s worth of calories, carbs, and fat. For example, a regular order of Chili’s Classic Nachos has 830 calories, 59 grams of fat, and 39 grams of carb…….

 

Coffee Drinks

A simple cup of joe with a little milk or even half-and-half can be a low-calorie beverage perfect for a person with diabetes. But many coffee-shop drinks rival decadent desserts for their high calorie, carb, and fat contents. For example, a 16-ounce Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha (with whipped cream and 2 percent milk) comes in at 470 calories and 63 grams of carb. Similarly, a medium Dunkaccino contains 350 calories, while the large size has almost 500 calories……

 

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Sometimes known as the bad boy on the breakfast buffet, traditional biscuits and gravy is indeed high in calories, fat (particularly saturated fat), and sodium. For example, the McDonald’s Biscuit and Gravy* entree has 570 calories and 13 grams of saturated fat.

That amount of saturated fat may not sound like too much, but consider that the American Diabetes Association suggests eating less than 7 percent of calories from saturated fat — and for most people, this is about 15 grams of saturated fat per day. Similarly, Bob Evans’ Sausage Gravy* recipe has 1,828 milligrams of sodium, exceeding the ADA’s recommended 1,500-milligram maximum per day……..

COFFEE FLOUR

Coffee flour is a food with a mission. Every year, billions of pounds of coffee fruit are discarded as a byproduct of coffee production. Instead of leaving the fruit to rot as waste, coffee flour was created to convert the leftover fruit into a tasty, nutritious flour that can be used for baking, cooking and making beverages. High in fiber, protein, and antioxidants, coffee flour is a non-GMO food that is naturally gluten-free. Not only is our coffee flour a perfectly versatile ingredient, it also helps create jobs for farmers and protect the environment………
