1. All Bran Cereal
Now, I know cereal is a hit or a miss in the eyes of some dieticians. HOWEVER, this is the only cereal that I have found that does not raise my blood sugar sky high. I assume it's because of the astronomical amount of fibre. I find it keeps me full, and keeps my blood sugars pretty stable, in fact I find most days I over-bolus for it.
2. Chocolate Almond Milk - Unsweetened
This kind of goes hand in hand with the All Bran, because I put the milk in the cereal. But I also use this for smoothies and baking. There is little sugar in this so it's a good replacement. I must admit though, the unsweetened almond milk isn't something I would drink on its own - not sweet enough for me!
I love apples. Probably one of my favourite fruits besides pineapple. But unlike pineapple, apples don't spike my blood sugar all that much, and fills me up. I have a huge sweet tooth, in fact I think I have a whole set of sweet teeth, so the apple is perfect to fulfill that craving.
4. Sweet Potatoes
I am all about the sweet potato, once again doesn't seem to cause to much ruckus with the blood sugars and is fairly filling. It's a good replacement for the delicious white potato but with less guilt. I probably eat a sweet potato every other day, whether that's sliced into 'chips' and baked or baked whole. I also love to bake with sweet potatoes!
I really love popcorn and always have. Thankfully, the serving size for popcorn is usually generous giving me more of a snack when I am craving. I usually pick up Farm Boy's popcorn, but really any popcorn will do.
