Author Sidebar: I found it confusing and sometimes frustrating trying to do meal planning because it wasn't clear what foods to eat and what foods not to eat. So, grocery-shopping was a real pain.

So, after doing some research and testing, I created a list of foods that eventually became my grocery shopping list. Wow, everything became so much easier!

Key foods for people with Type diabetes should include foods that help to control blood glucose levels and prevent blood glucose spikes.

These foods should also address inflammation and oxidation in order to prevent future health problems such as amputation, blindness and kidney failure.

The foods that you should be eating should contain vitamins, minerals and other critical nutrients and include major foods that are the focus of your meals. Examples of these major foods include green and leafy vegetables, bright-colored vegetables, some fruits (with the skin), beans, nuts and seeds, lean animal meat, fish, seafood.

Examples include broccoli, spinach, kale, Romaine lettuce, black beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, walnuts, almonds, blueberries, apples, chicken/turkey (without the skin), fish (wild salmon, sardines), bison, organic beef, shrimp and lobster.

These foods should also include complementary foods that go together with the major foods. Examples include onions, garlic, cayenne pepper, bell peppers, avocado, cucumber, celery, mushrooms, and tomatoes, just to name a few.

These food are key because they help to change the taste of the primary foods to align with your taste preferences.

Note: Most diets and meal plans out there don't take "taste preferences" into account. As a result, most people find it difficult to stick with their diet or diabetic meal plan primarily because they don't like the taste of the food!

If you don't like the food, you're not going to stick with the diet! {Duh) Yet, many diet programs give you meal examples, assuming that you'll love the taste of the food.

For example, the author loves hot and spicy foods, so adding cayenne and black pepper to his salad helped him enjoy the taste of salads and vegetable soups. As a result, he learned to love eating salads, instead of avoiding them because they taste like lawn grass. :-)
Liquids that diabetics can drink include filtered water, herbal teas, nut milks and raw juices.

This diabetic food list, taken from the Death to Diabetes Cookbook, is a more comprehensive list of the top foods for diabetics to consume in order to reverse their diabetes.

Diabetic Food List & Grocery Shopping List to Reverse Diabetes

Summary

These foods provide vital nutrients and exert less strain on the gastrointestinal system and other organs because they contain organically-active nutrients, good bacteria, antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, essential oils, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals.

As a result, the body requires less energy to “break down” these foods and has the necessary energy and raw materials to strengthen the immune system and protect the body from oxidation, toxicity, acidity, inflammation, infection and the various systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

And, if you already have one of these diseases, these nutrients help to perform other biochemical functions that facilitate healing and reversing the disease in your body.
