If managing diabetes is a part of your daily routine, diabetes-friendly diet is one of the major ingredients in the formula for success. Diabetes-friendly diet is a broad term, however. There is more to it than just choosing healthful food options that are low in carbohydrates and saturated fats, while being high in fiber and protein. It’s important, of course, to ensure that your food choices are free from ingredients that may damage your health, but it’s also imperative to ensure that you get the right set of nutrients from your diet that will help you get protected from potential issues that are common for people with diabetes.

One of such nutrients is Vitamin E. It is a fat-soluble nutrient that has proven to be important for vision and reproduction, as well as for the health of your brain, skin, and blood. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant that protects body cells from destruction caused by free radicals, which are unstable atoms that interact with other atoms damaging them. Free radicals originate from normal metabolic processes in your body as well as from external sources like air pollution, cigarette smoke, ozone, and x-rays. They can contribute to cancer, heart disease, and other chronic diseases.

Besides protecting your body from free radicals, Vitamin E helps maintaining a healthy immune system, helps with formation of red blood cells, and can be helpful in treating nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. It is also a natural blood thinner that prevents blood from clotting by widening your blood vessels.

So, what foods should be included in your diet to ensure that you get enough Vitamin E? Luckily, the variety is quite broad. – Among the foods rich in Vitamin E are: Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, broccoli, spinach, avocado, bell pepper, peanuts, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, vegetable oils, fruit juices, and whole-grain cereals. This variety of foods means more choices for you in the kitchen. Here are a few of our favorite recipes with Vitamin E rich ingredients.
