Ever since I was released from the hospital with a fresh diagnosis of Type One diabetes, I have been very overwhelmed by the fact that my lifestyle is going to have to change. My usual eating habits up till that point went something like this: carbs and sugars, with a side order of carbs. Which now I am realizing that I can no longer do if I want to live a long and healthy life. I have already started on a Low Carb diet to help manage my blood sugars, and only try to ingest around 100 grams of carbs per day. I must say its quite challenging since most of my past food consumption consisted of deliciously unhealthy junk food.
Some of the Low Carb snacks that I have found that I like that do no affect my blood sugar much are:
- Guacamole- I normally just eat this with a spoon depending on my blood sugar levels, or I i dip some low carb, high fiber tortillas or pita bread in it.
- String Cheese
- Cream Cheese- They come in different flavors like Chive and Onion, Honey, and a variety of other. And I like to spread it on some low carb, high fiber bread.
- There are also a variety of Atkins products that are very low in carbs. They also come in sweet flavors if you are craving something sweet but do not want to raise your blood sugar.
