Cheese & Crackers
String cheese (low fat) is a source of protein and fits in well with a healthy diabetes diet. The pre-packaged sticks also fit nicely into a purse and aid portion control. For a nutrition boost, nibble on single servings of the cheese with some whole-grain crackers (1 stick to 5 crackers) and apple slices, or even baby carrots.
Like the old adage says, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” There is some truth to that. According to a study done by the Harvard School of Public, the diets of 200,000 people were examined and they discovered that those who at 4 to 5 apples a week was less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
