Beans are nutritious and digested slowly so it will cause only a gentle rise in blood sugar. Diabetics who eat lots of beans require less insulin to control blood sugar. Lots of beans...Black Beans, Black-eyed peas, Cannellini, Garbanzo, Fava, Great Northers, Kidney, Lentils, Navy, Pinto, Red beans, split peas, and mung beans. Mash some for a sandwich spead or as a stand in for cream cheese or sour cream in dips. Try garbanzo's and tuna or pea soup with turkey instead of bacon or ham.
