1) Most all varieties of nuts are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, so they can lower harmful LDL cholesterol while improving HDL cholesterol levels. They are also excellent sources of glucose-lowering fiber, which can work to immediately decrease post-meal blood sugar.
2) Chia seeds contains about 12 grams of carbohydrates, 10 of those grams are pure fiber, which means that there’s little to no danger of a blood sugar spike from eating these seeds. They are also rich in a variety of diabetes-fighting nutrients, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, plus vitamins B1 and B3.
3) Cinnamon contains METHYL HYDROXYCHALCONE POLYMER, or MHCP, a compound which has the ability to mimic insulin’s effect on cells. This enables glucose to be more efficiently absorbed into blood cells.
4) Shellfish, including shrimp, lobster, scallops, crabs, clams, oysters, and even crayfish, are low in calories but packed with lean protein, and they supply beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. So they can fill you up and slow your digestion, which can help you avoid over-eating other less-than-healthy, potentially high sugar foods.
5) A recent meta-analysis of over 300 type 2 diabetic participants revealed that apple cider vinegar can work to lower fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C.
