People who suffer from diabetes have to watch their diet closely and manage their consumption of sugars and carbohydrates in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, some vegetables such as sweet potatoes offer nutritional benefits that can compensate their effect on blood sugar levels. Remember to always check with doctor before you include sweet potatoes in your diet!
Studies have shown that diabetic people who consume high-fiber foods are less likely to suffer from high blood glucose levels. And sweet potatoes are actually a storehouse of fibers as one medium sweet potato provides around 6g of fibers! Brush a non-stick pan with a bit of oil and fry one egg sunny side up. Slice a medium sweet potato and cook it in Actifry low fat fryer for 35 minutes. You just cooked yourself a delicious breakfast that’s diabetes-friendly!
Unlike regular potatoes, sweet potatoes actually have a low glycemic index that helps regulating the blood sugar levels by lowering the insulin resistance. Simply slice a sweet potato in half and grill it until cooked through. Enjoy with hard boiled eggs and avocado slices.
Sweet potatoes are a plant-based source of protein, which is important for diabetic people to increase their insulin sensitivity and regulate it. This benefit also promotes a longer feeling of fullness and healthy weight loss process!
