Creamy in texture and full of color and flavor, avocado is a common ingredient in salads, appetizers, sandwiches, and other dishes of many international cuisines. As rich as it is in taste, this fruit is no less rich in vitamins, nutrients, and healthy fats that contribute to a well-balanced diet that is so important for people with diabetes.

According to the research, avocados help diabetics manage the disease and improve their overall health in multiple ways. A healthy diet is important for everyone, but for people with diabetes a proper diet is one of the keys to successful diabetes management.

Welcoming avocado into your diet may help you lose weight and as a result, lower cholesterol and boost insulin sensitivity (helping the body to use insulin more effectively), which helps reducing the likelihood of developing serious complications associated with diabetes. Avocado is low in carbs, and therefore, it has virtually no effect on your blood sugar levels.

The healthy omega-3 fats in avocado make you feel full longer after meal and may decrease your desire to eat more. As a result, you are less likely to snack between meals, avoiding consumption of extra calories.

Avocado is great source of fiber. Having plenty of fiber in your diet helps you reduce A1c levels and fasting blood sugar levels. People often take supplements to boost their fiber intake. Avocados can significantly increase your fiber consumption without the use of supplements.

There are so many dishes you can make with this healthy and delicious fruit! You can find recipes for many of them online. We also have some favorite avocado dishes and here are the recipes for your enjoyment.
