As you strive to take steps to best overcome diabetes, it’s important that you consider which foods will really work overtime to get the job done. While there are many foods that can be considered healthy for those who are suffering from diabetes, there are some foods that really go that extra mile.

In this post, we’re going to walk you through four such foods so that you can be sure you put these on your grocery list.

Let’s get started.

1. Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are the first food to include in your menu, especially if you’re looking for a way to raise your healthy fat intake. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc, so will be important especially for males to eat who require more zinc on a day to day basis to keep their testosterone levels up.

Pumpkin seeds contain fewer than five grams of carbs per two tablespoon serving and will also pack in a great dose of dietary fiber as well. They’re an excellent seed to promote heart health and will work great eaten alone or tossed into salads or other baked foods you might be preparing.

2. Salmon

If you are not yet on the salmon bandwagon, now is the time to start. Salmon is a perfect source of protein that also comes with a good dose of essential omega-3 fatty acids.

Most people are currently not getting enough omega fatty acids in their overall diet plan, making salmon an excellent way to bring this up. These omega fatty acids will help you to boost insulin sensitivity.

3. Chia Seeds

Speaking of omega-3 fatty acids, that brings us to the next seed that you should be consuming, chia seeds. Chia seeds not only contain omega-3 fatty acids, but also provide a decent source of protein as well, so for those who may be consuming a vegetarian diet plan, these can help you bring your levels up.

Additionally, chia seeds are well-known to help lower your cholesterol levels, so they can be a great option for those who are concerned over their heart health.

Best of all, they’re very easy to add into your diet. Try them sprinkled on oatmeal, added to muffins, blended up into a protein smoothie, or stirred into a bowl of yogurt.

4. Edamame

Finally, the last super food that you might want to consider is Edamame, which is another great vegetarian option that provides protein along with dietary fiber.

They’re a very rich source of potassium and magnesium, which are both important for regulating blood glucose levels and they will also provide a hearty dose of calcium.
This makes them a great bone-building food, especially for those who may not consume dairy.
They’re fast and easy to prepare and can be eaten as a snack anytime.

All of these super foods are great additions to any diet plan, however they will really stand to benefit anyone who is suffering from diabetes.
