When you think of managing blood sugar, odds are you obsess over everything you can t have. While it s certainly important to limit no ingredients like white, refined breads and pastas and fried, fatty, processed foods, it s just as crucial to pay attention to what you should eat.

We suggest you start here.
Numerous nutrition and diabetes experts singled out these power foods because
* they are packed with the four healthy nutrients fiber, omega 3s, calcium, and vitamin D, that make up our Diabetes DTOUR Diet, and
* they re exceptionally versatile, so you can use them in recipes, as add ons to meals, or stand alone snacks.

Beans
Beans have more to boast about than being high in fiber plant compounds that help you feel full, steady blood sugar, and even lower cholesterol; a half cup of black beans delivers more than 7 grams . They re a not too shabby source of calcium, a mineral that research shows can help burn body fat. In ½ cup of white beans, you ll get almost 100 mg of calcium about 10% of your daily intake. Beans also make an excellent protein source; unlike other proteins Americans commonly eat such as red meat , beans are low in saturated fat the kind that gunks up arteries and can lead to heart disease. How to eat them Add them to salads, soups, chili, and more. There are so many different kinds of beans, you could conceivably have them every day for a week and not eat the same kind twice.

Dairy
You re not going to find a better source of calcium and vitamin D a potent diabetes quelling combination than in dairy foods like milk, cottage cheese, and yogurt. One study found that women who consumed more than 1,200 mg of calcium and more than 800 IU of vitamin D a day were 33% less likely to develop diabetes than those taking in less of both nutrients. You can get these nutrients from other foods, but none combine them like dairy does. Stick to fat free or low fat versions of your favorite dairy foods regular has a lot of saturated fat. How to eat it Drink milk with some meals instead of soda or sugary juices, have yogurt or cottage cheese as a snack or dessert, and use milk to make oatmeal or thicken certain soups.

Oats
Like barley and beans, oats are a diabetes power food because of their fiber content a half cup of instant oats provides 4 g. Research shows that oat lovers can also lower total and bad LDL cholesterol and improve insulin resistance. All the soluble fiber oats contain slows the rate at which your body can break down and absorb carbohydrates, which means your blood sugar levels stay stable. How to eat them The easiest way is straight from your cereal bowl, but you can also sneak oats into all kinds of recipes, from pancakes to meat loaf to cookies.

Berries
Berries are nature s candy but unlike sugary confections from the checkout aisle, they re loaded with fiber and antioxidants called polyphenols. A cup of blackberries supplies 7.6 g of fiber; blueberries contain 3.5 g. Berries antioxidants are also good for your ticker One 2008 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people with heart disease risk factors who ate berries for 8 weeks had a drop in blood pressure and a boost in good HDL cholesterol. How to eat them Wonderful alone, berries are also tasty when stirred into oatmeal, ice cream, or even salads. Fresh berries freeze well, so if you re not going to eat them right away, store them in your freezer so you always have some on hand.

Dates
These chewy fruits aren't much to look at plain and brown and a little sticky. But pop one in your mouth and you ll be rewarded with a sweet taste and delightful texture. Their palate pleasing nature, combined with a generous supply of fiber 7 dates supply 4 g , makes them a perfect diabetes friendly snack. They re also jam packed with antioxidants with more per serving than grapes, oranges, broccoli, and peppers, according to one study. How to eat them Stuff dates with pecan or walnut halves for a satisfying snack.
