Diabetes Snack Idea: Cottage Cheese and Fruit

Cottage cheese helps lose weight. Half a cup = 12 g of protein, and a source of leucine, an amino acid which is a building block for muscles. Choose a low-fat, no-sodium-added version. Pair with fruit/add to smoothie/ oatmeal. Enjoy.

Treat wounds and sores

Don’t neglect wounds and sores. If a nick, a scratch, a small cut – isn’t healing, talk to your doctor right away to avoid infection. Cover your legs, wear proper shoes.

Apples and Pears

Healthy snacking is important in diabetes. Eat pears and apples with the peels for more fiber. The water content and fiber in whole fruit keeps you full longer, while making a healthy snack option. Oh, and chew the fruit to burn some calories rather than gulp down juice or  smoothies.
