Being a diabetic complicates one’s relationship with food. There are just so many delicious goodies you have to forgo. You begin spending much more time in the health foods’ section at the supermarket. The trick to managing diabetes well is incorporating more diabetic-friendly foods so you can indulge (in moderation) every once in a while. Thus, add the following foods to your daily diet and you’ll be a step closer to keeping your blood sugar levels in control.

1. Avocado

This popular superfood contains healthy monosaturated fats that diminish blood sugar spikes in the aftermath of a meal. Since Avocado is also smooth and creamy, it can be used as a substitute for less healthy options such as butter or mayonnaise. You can simply mash and season avocado flesh and add it to your meals in many ways.
