After my last recipe, I suddenly get the urge to write another post about snacks. I recall explaining my love for snacks in the last recipe but I only gave one snack idea for diabetics in the post. For that reason, I am going to give my top 5 favorite snacks I always carry in my diabetic kitchen.
Always keep in mind your blood glucose levels. Snacks for diabetics are usually meant to balance your blood glucose level.
- Sun chips: Sun Chips are my favorite type of chips, even over the unhealthy chips I have tried in the past. Their flavors are always natural and healthy while maintaining that great taste.
- Quaker SnackMix: This snack is a surprising one for most people because it does not look healthy. However, Quaker’s snack mix is incredibly healthy and is a great source of Iron. The taste is unique to Quaker’s SnackMix and is no where near the same as ChexMix.
- Triscuit Thin Crisps: I typically do not eat crackers alone because I find them to be too bland for me. These crackers are made with 100% whole grain while using a combination of cheeses to create a very unique taste.
- Canned Tuna: Canned tuna is actually one of the ways I spice up my “Bland” Crackers. Tuna is a great source of protein and can be mixed with many things to create cracker toppings. It can be prepared extremely quickly and will fill you up fast!
- Nature Valley Granola Bars: I have liked Nature Valley Granola Bars since I was taking it to school for lunch. They are always tasty and come in many flavors. Nature Valley Granola Bars contain a high amount of whole grain and fiber.
