What's Your Favorite Diabetic Snacks? Here are My Faves and Why...

For diabetic snacks to qualify as "perfect" to me, they need to meet the following criteria:

  • Quick and Easy - I'm very busy and I guess I'm lazy too.
  • Low Carb - All carbs raise blood sugar so I like to pick diabetic snacks that are very low carb. In fact, the lower the better. I also like low carb balanced with high protein as this is less likely to elevate blood sugar.
  • Low Glycemic Index - Some carbs, like those found in some veggies and fruits, take longer to break down. These types of carbs don't raise blood sugar as much.
  • Healthy & Nutritious - I don't want empty calories. As a diabetic, I want every calorie to count and I want good nutrients from natural sources in my body.
  • Filling - I can't concentrate as well if my stomach is talking and I don't want to have to snack all the time. I want the snack to keep the tummy growls away until the next meal-time.
  • Less Processed - The less additives, artificial ingredients, and preservatives the better. An increasing number of studies show that processed food brings on diabetes and makes it worse.
  • Tasty - After all, it is a snack! Diabetic snacks don't have to be dull and boring. They can be delicious too.

While there are lots of good options, these are my personal top 5 picks that meet all the criteria above making them absolutely perfect diabetic snacks:

  • Nuts & Seeds - Overall, this is my very favorite diabetic snack. I like the fact that these don't have to be refrigerated. You can even keep a can of these at work or in the car.
  • Cottage Cheese - 1/2 cup of Knudsen Cottage Cheese (made from cows not treated with hormones) has 13 grams of protein, a good dose of calcium, and only 5 grams of carb. Cottage cheese is a versatile food. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add a small amount of lower carb fresh fruit like blueberries. You can also add herbs, nuts, olives, and peppers. I like to add fresh dill.
  • Raw Veggies & Low Carb Dressing/Dip - Radishes, cucumbers, celery, red peppers, yellow peppers, and green peppers are all excellent low carb choices. Sometimes I crave raw veggies and I try to keep them on hand in the fridge for when this happens. These days it is easy to find low carb dressings at the store but if you look around the net, you'll find many home-made recipes for low carb high protein dressing which lasts for more than a week and tastes fabulous.
  • Hard Boiled Eggs/Deviled Eggs - I usually keep hard boiled eggs on hand in the fridge. I like them with just a bit of salt and pepper or I devil them up.
  • Low Carb Yogurt - This is easy to get these days in a variety of natural flavors and is a really convenient diabetic snack. Be sure to pick one with active cultures to help the good bacteria win out over the bad bacteria in your body.


  1. Hello, I am enjoying your site, but find it hard to read online. I was wondering the book that is advertized at the top of the page is that your book and does it have everything you talk about on line.
    My Blood Glucose was 200 and I've been watching my food intake and limiting my Carbs, plus Dr wants me to check my sugar twice a day for a month. I don't really want medication when I see him next month. So I did a search online and that's how I found your site


  2. Hello Pam,

    I'm glad you're enjoying the site. It is mostly a labor of love. The "book" I review above is actually more than just one as you get several bonus books with it and it contains FAR FAR FAR more info than what I have on this site. It tells you in detail how to cure your diabetes, not just manage it, and not have to be on medication. Hope this helps.

  3. Thanks for the reply Maxine, I had the increadible edible egg this morning with a lil cheese, YUM YUM. I cooked it in real butter, let it brown just a little before I add the egg which I think gives it a good taste
    Is there a number to order the book instead of online, I'll go check and see

    Pam : )

  4. Eggs are definitely overall my favorite breakfast food since they are so versatile and just about pure protein and well, yummy too :-)

    Don't know if you can order by number....if you do, please mention my site. I do get a commission. The little bit I make helps me keep the sites going. Also, I think, but not sure, you get extra stuff if ordering online.
