    Yes, fruits can be eaten...but there are low carb fruits and hi carb fruits. Cherries are also foods that lower blood sugar. Eat small slices of avocado through the day to balance blood sugar. Rapberries, Strawberries, Blackberries, blueberries are good. Never eat Watermelon on an empty stomach, have with a carb and only 1 cup. The riper the banana the higher the sugar. Eat 1/2 Banana only at one time,and before they get too ripe. Apples are good with lots of fiber. Plums, oranges and tangerines are good too. Stay away from canned pineapple ...too much sugar and could give you a sugar spike. Read some of my diabetic secrets. My numbers are always good these days.
