These foods have super powers vs. diabetes

by drsjbecker on February 24, 2012

The American Diabetes Association offers this list of 10 “superfoods” that people with diabetes may want to consider incorporating into their diets:

Beans, such as navy, black, kidney or pinto, are very high in fiber, with about a third of the daily requirement in a half-cup. They’re starchy vegetables, but a half-cup provides as much protein as an ounce of meat.

Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale are powerhouse foods so low in calories and carbohydrates you can’t eat too much.

Citrus fruit (oranges, grapefruit) delivers part of the daily dose of fiber and vitamin C.   http://yourlife.usatoday.com/health/story/2012-02-12/These-foods-have-super-powers-vs-diabetes/53063818/1?csp=34news&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+UsatodaycomHealth-TopStories+%28News+-+Health+-+Top+Stories%29USA Today (usatoday.com) – – (Monday, February 13, 2012) –
