Here are some foods that Powers says can help keep your blood sugar in check and make you happy and healthy:
  • Raw, Cooked, or Roasted Vegetables - Choose tasty, low-carb veggies, like mushrooms, onions, eggplant, tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, and low-carb squashes, like zucchini.
  • Greens - Go beyond your regular salad and try kale, spinach, and chard.
  • Flavorful, Low-calorie Drinks - Cut up a lemon or cucumber and put it in your water, or make ice cubes with some flavoring in them.
  • Melon or Berries - For a different twist, mix the melon or berries with plain yogurt, or put them in ice cubes.
  • Whole-grain, Higher-fiber Foods - Try legumes like dried beans, peas, and lentils. You can even enjoy a black bean and corn salsa with your raw vegetables.
  • Protein - Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, and lean meats can help.
