The best snacks for type 2 diabetes have no added sugar and combine protein and healthy fats with high–quality carbohydrates — an ideal mix for keeping hunger at bay and blood–sugar levels on an even keel. Choose one or two of the following snacks per day; I've also provided the total meal breakdowns for people who use the food-exchange system, and the total calories and grams of carbs for those who opt for carb–counting.
In a pinch? Grab a bag of my Hot & Popular, which packs in flavor by mixing spicy peanuts with half-popped corn kernels dusted in sea salt. Not a drop of added sugar!
