Diabetic Diet Food List – For Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

diabeticdiet food list salad 2

Although I have many recipes to share I thought a simple Diabetic Diet Food List would be helpful.

It’s short enough to stick on the fridge or carry with you when shopping.

A fully comprehensive list would be enormous but if you are familiar with this short version you can apply the principles to any food that you come across.

Each list is accompanied by a short video of about 10 minutes as I know time is always valuable

If like me you find this a bit daunting please remember that many of the foods on the "Avoid" list can now be bought in a diabetic low sugar form.

Although there's never a good time to be diagnosed ass type 2 Diabetic we are fortumate that there are more diabetic friendly foods and products than ever before.

It's just a matter of being aware and questioning everything.

Good luck with your diet and please let me know if you find any really good and tasty diabetic meals and treats.

Happy eating
