One of the most common things people know about diabetes is that diabetics have to control their blood glucose level. That is correct as well as the fact that one of the ways to control blood glucose level is to limit sugar intake, which means to avoid foods and beverages that have large amount of sugar in them. This is a pretty simple concept. However, it’s not always clear what people with diabetes should and should not eat. Your most likely heard a number of times that if you have diabetes, it’s better to stay away from juices. But what about fruit? The answer to this question can’t be more positive – yes, you can!

Very similarly to vegetables, fruit contains lots of fiber, vitamins, and minerals which makes it an important part of a well-balanced diabetes-friendly diet. Although some fruit like watermelon or dried dates are better to avoid, there many kinds of fruit that are healthy, including apples, apricots, peaches, berries, pears, kiwis, and citrus. These fruits are considered low glycemic index food, which means food that causes a slower rise in blood glucose levels.

So when you want to enjoy some healthy, light, and diabetes-friendly dish, treat yourself to a fruit salad! Considering the variety of healthy ingredients available, you can easily make an impressive number of delicious fruit salads.
