Planning your midday meals isn’t always easy. Here are some healthy foods you can choose at dinner to help keep your diabetes under control.
1. Replace your cheese with avocado slices.
Dairy products are especially important if you have diabetes, but whole milk cheese has a downside. It’s stuffed with saturated fat. This complicates blood sugar control by making your insulin sensitivity worse.
- Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help you control your blood sugar and protect your heart. Their creamy richness is similar to that of cheese.
- You do not need to completely eliminate cheese from your diet. Just choose low-fat forms like partially skimmed mozzarella when you don’t want to replace it entirely.
