What to Eat with Diabetes: Best ChipsDiabetic living logo

By Jessie Shafer & Jane Burnett, RD, LD
Looking for a better snack chip? Try one of our 18 winners or finalists that are dietitian-approved and taste-tested. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated pretzels, flavored chips, cheesy chips, plain potato chips, BBQ chips, and corn chips our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Taste-Tested and Diabetes-Friendly
It’s not easy to find diabetes-friendly snack options — especially foods that are notoriously unhealthful, such as greasy chips and salty pretzels. But we knew there had to be some delicious products out there. So we went on a mission to track down all the options that met our nutrition guidelines. Then we sent those products through a series of taste tests.

Some were too crunchy; others weren’t crunchy enough. But after being tasted by more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, the best-tasting chips and pretzels rose to the top. The winner in each category received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ award. Pop open a bag and taste how yummy healthful snacks can be!

Today’s Menu: Glazed Grilled Chicken Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Grilled Asparagus Spears, and Whole Grain Bread

A perfect day outside and fired the grill up! i grilled Miller Amish Boneless Chicken Breast with a Heinz 57 Sauce/Honey Glaze. You think it sounds good, it tastes even better! Grilled the Breasts about 30 minutes and after flipping the Breasts after 15 minutes brushed the Glaze on with about 10 minutes left. The Glaze recipe is just two ingredients, Honey and Heinz 57 Sauce (the recipe is at the nd of the post). Along with the Chicken I had sides of Grilled Asparagus Spears and Idahoan Homestyle Mashed Potatoes along with Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Sauce really set the Chicken off, give it a try. For dessert/snack later some Fiesta Salsa along with Chip‘ins Pop Corn Chips.

57 Sauce/Honey Glaze
