 3 Rules of Snacking

As a diabetic, avoiding large blood sugar fluctuations is the number one priority. Anodyne's in-house registered dietitian nutritionist provided the 3 rules of snacking with diabetes.

The Rules of Snacking

As a diabetic, avoiding blood sugar crashes is the number one priority. A good rule of thumb for snacking is to keep each snack about 300 calories or less and make sure they’re:

  • High in fiber
  • Sources of protein
  • Sources of healthy fat

If you are unsure as to what foods may be high in fiber, protein or sources healthy fat, not to worry! Most whole, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and dairy are great options. It’s important to know what is in your food so you are aware how the food will affect your blood sugar. Mix and match the options below to have the most nourishing and delicious snack.

High-Fiber Snacks

  • 1 cup cooked oatmeal with blueberries (7g)
  • 3 cups air-popped popcorn (4g)
  • Banana (3g)

High-Protein Snacks

  • 1 large hard-boiled egg (6g)
  • 1 stick of part-skim string cheese (7g)
  • 4 Tbsp. hummus and carrots (6g)

Sources of Healthy Fat Snacks

  • Half an avocado with everything but the bagel seasoning (15g)
  • ¼ C. nuts (14g)
  • 1 Tbsp. of peanut butter on celery sticks (9g)
  • 5 oz. olives (11g)
