Diabetes Diet: Whole Grains and Beans
2. Whole Grains and Beans
These are great foods to include in a diabetes diet. Whole grains and other complex carbohydrates deserve top billing on any antidiabetes menu. Oats, beans and some fruits and vegetables are loaded with soluble fibre, which dissolves in water, forming a gel in your stomach. That slows digestion, which is critical for heading off blood sugar spikes.
