BEANS FOR DIABETICS
Fiber is important to the diabetic's diet. Fiber in foods helps to satisfy hunger thus making us full sooner, helps reduce the number of calories the body absorbs, and keeps blood sugar from skyrocketing after meals. Did you know beans are a great high-fiber food and should be eaten often by diabetics. I try to eat some daily, yes daily. Add them to soup, salads, tacos, etc. One cup of black or red beans provides 13 grams of fiber and 15 grams protein. Make beans an important part of your diet. Beans are also good sources of calcium and they contain magnesium, another diabetes fighter.
