Diabetic Snacks

Any suggestions for some snacks that I could take to the hospital for a friend who is diabetic and there with her husband?

My aunt is diabetic and she will snack on trail mix. Maybe some peanut butter with crackers? It is really hard to eat well while at the hospital but so important for someone with diabetes. You are very thoughtful to remember your friend during her husbands hospital stay. Hope you can get some good suggestions.

Unsweetened applesauce, Motts makes HealthyHarvest in several flavors. Bananas. Quaker Oatmeal squares cereal is low in sugars and a good snack. Quaker makes a 25% less sugar chewy granola bars. Special K pastry crisps.

Mixed nuts - almonds, cashews, and walnuts - are good. Also, a variety of different kinds of sugar free gum - there is a "dessert" line out right now that has flavors like key lime pie, strawberry shortcake and rootbeer float that are wonderful.

To an extent, every diabetic is different. DH, a diabetic, can maintain low blood sugars even when he eats certain foods that one would normally associate with higher blood sugars: pizza and Subway sandwiches. (Maybe that's because he does get quite a bit of exercise.) In general, however, he recommends nuts, whole grain pretzels, and popcorn.

I read something about drinking tea, especially hot tea, being good for Diabetes...preventing and managing.

And accompanying whatever snack you are having with a cup of hot tea might make you feel more satisfied and full.

Great ideas. Nuts especially. As far as I've found...any kind of nut. But be careful with them pre-packaged trail mix products. Lot's of them have sugar added. Kellogs is the worst. I once spiked to 300 and when I looked at the label I saw why. Even the stuff with the trusted old Quaker guy's picture on the package is pure garbage. Pure honey for some reason, at least for me actually lowers my blood sugar. It's best if not processed.
Whole grain doesn't mean a thing. Unless organic and purchased from a trusted food co-op, all grains now days are of the gmo variety and are just useless.
Stick with nuts. Almonds rock!
