When it comes to managing blood sugar levels, your diet has an essential role to play. If you have an understanding of what foods you can consume, their effects on insulin production in your body, and how they can help manage your blood sugar levels, you can make an informed choice in terms of what and when to eat.

However, you must talk to a doctor before adding or removing any food to/from your diet if you have type 2 diabetes . Here is a list of foods that you can consume:

1. Non-starchy veggies

Vegetables are good to go with any diet whether it's for a normal person or one with diabetes. Based on nutrition, vegetables are primarily of two types - starchy and non-starchy.

Starchy vegetables are rich in carbohydrates too. These vegetables can raise the level of glucose in your blood. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), you must consume at least 3 to 5 servings of non-starchy vegetables every day, where one service refers to the following:

● Uncooked vegetables - 1 cup

● Cooked vegetables ½ cup

Here is a list of some non-starchy vegetables:

● Bean sprouts

● Cabbage

● Baby corn

● Cucumber

● Carrots

● Squash

● Green salads (lettuce, spinach, etc.)

You can consume these vegetables in boiled form or they are good to go in raw form as well.
