Best Foods to Eat for a Diabetic

When a food-lover is diagnosed with diabetes, ground slips under his or her food. The person starts thinking, how could I survive with no yummy plates around me? What is the point of surviving without the foods I have liked since my childhood? Nothing can keep me happy from now onwards.
But, contrary to what most of the diabetics think, it is irrefutably true that they can still gorge on most of the foods they like without thinking a bit about their health complications. If you are a diabetic, you can eat tandoori chicken, malai chicken tikka, various types of Kababs, Paneer Tikka, mushrooms and a number of tasty foods.
Besides these things, it is also important not to give long gap between the meals. Those who are diabetics, should keep on taking their meals in short duration. It will not only keep your stomach full, but also stop your cravings for consuming sweets. For a diabetic, it is very important to get nutrients from foods.
Let’s have a Look on the Nutrient-rich Foods that will Augur Well for your Health:
Take dark green leafy vegetables, like spinach, collards. These super foods are low in calories and carbohydrates. Beans are also very nutritious, since they are high in fiber. If you take just 1/2 cup of beans, you will get 1/3 rd of your daily requirements. Apart, they are also very rich sources of magnesium and potassium.
Do not forget to include citrus food, if you are a diabetic. Grapefruit, lemons, limes and oranges are good citrus foods. Consumption of these foods will fulfil your daily requirements of vitamin C. It is very much essential for the growth and repair of tissues in our body. And since the body does not store Vitamin C in its tissues, its consumption is needed on a day-to-day basis.

Consumption of whole grains is also very advantageous for a diabetic. So, do not forget to include the whole grains in your diet chart. Besides containing all the nutrients that a grain product has, these foods do also have magnesium, chromium, folate and omega 3 fatty acids.

Apart from the foods discussed above, you also need to include sweet potato, berries, nuts, fat-free milk, yogurt and tomatoes in your diet chart. If you are a non-vegetarian, take fish that is high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, like Salmon, Tuna, etc. Do not consume breaded or deep fat fried varieties.

You can also take coriander. It is very nutritious herb. You can take its seeds, make these wet in water in night and sip its water in the morning. Along with coriander soup, you can also take ginger and garlic in small amount. These are very much effective for a diabetic.
