      Diabetes superfoods that keep you healthy

      Diabetes is a chronic disease that can restrict your diet especially when it comes to sugar and starch. Here are some superfoods that can keep you nourished and active. Whole grains, nuts, berries, milk, kale and others are some foods that are a must.

      Nuts

      Nuts are a powerhouse of nutrition and are rich in magnesium and fiber. Walnuts and flaxseeds are also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. They are full of healthy fats.

      Oranges and grape fruits

      The pulp found in oranges and grapes are a great source of fiber and is good for diabetics. Eat it as a whole fruit rather than consuming as juice.

      Milk & yogurt

      They are a great source of calcium and keep bones and teeth strong. When fortified with Vitamin D, this makes things even better. However, choose those that are low in fat and free from any added sugar.

      Kale and leafy green vegetables

      Kale is a very healthy green and rich in Vitamin A and K and nourishes one with over 100% of the daily recommended intake of these.

      Whole grain

      Whole oats, quinoa, whole grain barley and farro are popular whole grains. These are known to be an abundant source of Vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, chromium, magnesium, iron and folate. The soluble and insoluble fiber found in these facilitates the quick metabolism of fats.

      Tomatoes

      These can be eaten raw or cooked, either way they are rich in lycopene which cuts down the risk of cancer, heart disease, and macular degeneration. They also have a low GI ranking.
