It’s a well-known fact that for diabetic people the key to successful blood sugar management is diet. In particular, it should be well-balanced and include foods that are high in fiber, lean protein, and vegetable-based fats, and low in calories, saturated fat, and carbohydrates.

This rule divides all food choices into two camps – what you should eat and what you should avoid. One of the foods that perfectly belongs to the group of products that you should have in your diet is mushrooms.

There are many different kinds of mushrooms such as the champignons, white or button mushroom, Portobello, shiitake, oyster mushrooms and chanterelles to name a few. They all differ quite substantially in appearance and flavor. Nevertheless, they are all low in fat and carb content and rich in protein, fiber and antioxidants. Mushrooms are also a great source of vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B5, and polysaccharides, such as beta glucan, that improve metabolism, slow digestion process and delay sugar absorption, all of which control blood sugar levels and contribute to the reduction of obesity and diabetes.

Because there is a broad variety of mushrooms out there, there are many diabetes-friendly dishes that can be made from them, ranging from salads to soups, to dinner main courses. Here are a few recipes that we like.


Zucchini with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

Besides, it’s a very tasty one!
