Diet Guide & Principles
Rich in antioxidants, fresh berries are a diabetic-friendly fruit. High in vitamin C, folic acid, fiber, and phytochemicals, berries help reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure plus Type 2 Diabetes. You can add blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, blackberries or raspberries to your yogurt parfait or oatmeal.
What to Avoid: Packaged dried berries. They have water removed from them, making the sugar concentrated. 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries has 2g of sugar, while 1/2 cup of dried cranberries contains 37g of sugar.
