WEB_Avocado_Dip_05aFOODS THAT HEAL IN THIS RECIPE:

Greek Yogurt – Unsweetened, full fat Greek yogurt is one of the healthiest yogurts that you could add to your diet as a diabetic as it’s very low in sugar and contains a very high amount of protein. Rich in Vitamin D, it is protein-rich and stabilizes blood sugar while soothing inflammation. It also reduces stress on the overall immune system. Pair this with some fresh berries and flaxseeds or sliced almonds for the perfect snack to help control your blood sugar levels. Substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream in all your recipes.

Avocado – One food that’s excellent for the diabetic as it’s a great source of healthy fats that will help to keep blood sugar levels stable after eating a mixed meal with proteins and carbohydrates is the avocado. This food is rich in essential fatty acids, which will help to protect against heart disease and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Avocados are also loaded in vitamin K and dietary fiber, which is important for keeping your heart healthy and blood clotting properly. This food contains less than two grams of sugar per cup serving and is also ranked low on the glycemic index scale. Add it to salads, on top of sandwiches, or mix it into a dip to serve alongside your favorite raw veggies.
