Pulses are an excellent source for protein and carbs. But the carbs in pulses do not affect your blood in the same way other carbs do. Pulse can be considered as an important part of the diet of people who have diabetes.

 

4.Omega 3 fatty acid

Diabetes6

Your body requires a certain amount of saturated fats to continue working. But saturated fat is not good for people who have diabetes. Omega 3 fatty acids are very rich in monosaturated fat which can be a viable replacement.

Having three large meals together can spike your blood sugar level. Diabetic patients can come into the habit of having small meals at regular intervals to keep the blood sugar levels in check.

 

6.High fiber vegetables

Fiber can help in regulating blood sugar level and also make you feel full soon while you are consuming. Diabetic people are more prone to developing heart disease as well. Fiber helps reduce your cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart disease. Leafy vegetables, broccoli, peas, beans and spinach are some examples of high fiber vegetables.
