12 'Grab-and-Go' Healthy Snacks That Taste Good

We've all done it—and we all know better—but eating processed snacks when hunger strikes is one of the worst things you can do when you have diabetes. Here are a dozen healthy options and a recipe, too.

When you have diabetes, the daily task of watching your sugar and carbohydrate consumption can feel burdensome at times. But it's never a good idea to reach for processed snack foods. Even so-called "healthy" snacks (i.e. yogurt that contains syrupy fruit) can be loaded with sugar and carbs. Sticking with whole foods is a good rule of thumb and with a little advanced planning, it's not difficult to keep your kitchen stocked with healthy options that won't cause your blood sugar to spike.
