Healthy Snacks for Type 2 Diabetes

What do we mean by a healthy snack? The term healthy can mean a lot of different things to many people. 

As someone with diabetes the number one thing we look for is something that does not spike my blood sugars.  Or, if it does spike my blood sugars, my numbers go back down to baseline within an hour of consuming a product.

So we look for something low in carbohydrates and has zero to a small amount of sugar per serving. 

Secondly, we also look at calories, fat and protein.  Sometimes we need something high in calories and fat to help us stay satiated for a busy day or a long workout. 

Sometimes we look for something high in protein for after a long weight lifting session.  

In any case, we got healthy snacks for type 2 diabetes, here are just a few of our diabetic snacks that we think you'll love.
