Summary:
Broccoli

Let’s start off by talking about one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. Broccoli is a superfood for people with diabetes. A wholesome meal is incomplete without greens. Packed with antioxidants, folate and a host of other vitamins and nutrients, they are beneficial for not just diabetics, but for everyone!

Cabbage

Obesity is one of the primary causes for diabetes. Filling up on veggies is a great way of managing diabetes, as well as promoting weight loss. Soluble fiber is one of the several nutrients found in cabbage. It contributes to regulating blood sugar.

Kale

Kale is the queen of greens. They’re packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants and a range of nutrients. People with irregular blood sugar should have foods high in vitamin C due to their capacity to cure inflammation, which is another one of the major causes for diabetes.

Potato

Who doesn’t love french fries, mashed potatoes or wedges? This popular side dish is hearty, wholesome and delicious. However, everything about potatoes makes them bad for diabetics. This starchy root vegetable which is packed to the brim with calories and carbs causes a severe spike in sugar levels.

Corn

Having corn on the cob every now and then as a side dish or a salad adds just the right hint of sweetness and color to any meal of the day. While non diabetics can enjoy different corn dishes with a variety of toppings, people with moderate to severe diabetes should avoid eating them.

    1. Potatoes

    3. Butternut squash
    4. Parsnip
    5. Pumpkin
    6. Vegetables juices.

  2. Other diabetic sites state that mashed parsnip is a safe alternative for diabetics in place of mashed potato, and in my experience don’t raise blood sugar, so we have contradiction and confusion as “experts” disagree !!! We are left wondering who is right !!!

  3. KALE, CABBAGE, COLLARD, BROCCOLI, BRUSSEL SPROUTS, BAKED SWEET POTATOES….I JUST CAN NOT DO THE ICE CREAM, BAKED GOODS.SODAS, SALTY SNACKS, FAST FOOD, ETC….I EAT ..MOSTLY SALMON, LEAN CHICKEN BREAST, SARDINES, LOT OF WATER, A LITTLE BROWN RICE…LOTS OF FRESH RED /GREEN PEPPERS, GARLIC, RED ONIONS, ALMONDS, PISTACHIOS, LITTLE PLAIN YOGURT, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL…ETC…NO WHITE FLOUR, RICE, BREAD, SUGAR…….ONLY ____A LITTLE ORGANIC HONEY, BROWN RICE, MULTI GRAIN BREAD, RAW SUGAR…..NO HOT DOGS, BACON, DELI MEAT, FROZEN MEALS, SUGARY DRINKS…LOVE GREEN TEA, LEMON WATER….

  4. All these are fine. Enough with the demonizing of whole plants foods. The problem is added oils and sugar. But a potatoes, squash, or corn within of themselves contain the fibers necessary to slow down the absorption of carbs. Everyone, even most diabetics have a lot to gain from eating these whole plant foods. Cut the meat, eggs, dairy, oils, and processed foods. Those are the obvious culprits

  5. I admire the effort to bring info on this. But it's not the veggie, it's how it's cooked. This has been proven. The problem is genetic modification, cooking with fat, and sugar. Meat is pumped with antibiotics, chemical, and unhealthy breeding. At the factory processing is grinding bone and feathers as approved by the fda. Just ask any chef what's in sausage, bologna, or hot dogs. I haven't even covered what's really in school lunches. Diabeties starts with childhood. And it can be cured with diet. It's time everyone wakes up.
