Also, *Sugar free pudding cup (Hunts are the best and only $1.00 for 4) *String cheese (with one carb, 12 grams, whole grain crackers) *Peanut butter on whole grain Crackers (low fat Triscuts and try PB2) *no sugar added hot cocoa (I love Swiss Miss) *Turkey breast with one slice high fiber bread *1/2 cup low fat, low sugar yogurt (Greek) like Yoplait 100 (Lime has best nutrition) *popcorn (air popped or measure oil) in appropriate serving size for your carb count It takes time to get adjusted to life as a diabetic. I test my blood a lot as a way of control! My insurance allows it and it is a way to make sure you are on track! I have been type 2 for over 10 years...you will get it! Good Luck! If I can help, just let me know!

The recipes on this site are good, or go to the diabetes org site. Get a referral to a dietitian, that is what helped us the most. It ain't fun nor easy in our culture, but you learn to live with simpler choices.

as long as the carbs on these items fit within your plan for the day:
dry-roasted nuts hummus with veggies (carrots, tomatoes, celery) high-fiber, low GI fruits fresh salsa cheese pumpkin or sunflower seeds lunch meat/sausages yogurt skim milk (I put coffee and Splenda in mine :) ) avocado peanut or other nut butters hard-boiled egg
Hmmm...I don't snack much anymore. I drink massive quantities of herbal tea instead.

You know I am not diabetic but I have found that eating along the lines of the Diabetes association recommendations is a great and easy way to stay on track.....especially with the no sugar aspect

Ive been diabetic for about two years now and well, not been so good at it! I'd really like to have a good group of snack ideas that are simple and easy to pull from. When I try to do well with eating I usually end up I a rut of eating the same foods because they are what I know. I'd like variety to help me stay on track. Any ideas?!
