As I mentioned in my last article, there are foods that are great for diabetics, and some that are not so good too. Today, I will be sharing lists of the Yes and No Foods for T1D’s.
It is important to eat a healthy diet when you have Type 1 Diabetes. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a treat every once a while.
Yes: Some of the Diabetes ‘Super Foods’ include: Beans, Berries, Citrus Fruits, Nuts, Fat-free yogurt and milk, and more.
No: Diabetics should try to stay away from: regular sodas, high carb foods including; pasta, white bread, cookies, etc.
I am not going to lie and say I do not eat the foods that I am not supposed to be. But, as a young girl, who definitely has a sweet tooth, I do indeed eat pasta, rice, and more. I am allowed to eat that kind of things due to my insulin pump. I bolus (give myself insulin), wait about 10-15 minutes, then enjoy!
I am not the best diabetic, but who is? I will continue to try my best and stay away from the NO foods that I enjoy, but it will take time. I hope you enjoyed learning about some yes and no foods for diabetics.
