What’s a power food?

If you have diabetes, for a power food to eat we are looking for foods that are higher in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, all while being lower in carbohydrates and “bad” fats (saturated fats and Trans fats).

Some greens and vegetables are healthier than others, some fats are better for you than others, and some protein foods are better, etc. You get the idea. In every food group, there are those foods that are healthier and therefore better for diabetes than others.

We’ve seen a move recently away from processed foods to whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Some of these foods will help you manage your diabetes, some will help prevent heart disease, cancer and other diseases and illnesses.

We don’t mean that you may only eat the foods on this list, but rather you should swap them out in your diet within each food group from which they belong. You will eat other foods besides these 12 foods that are part of a healthy, low carbohydrate, low-fat diet for diabetes.

To find superfoods, we can also look at the Glycemic Index (GI). Look for foods that are less than 55 on the GI scale and use our list of the top 12 diabetes power foods to eat below.

We’ll count them down, but they’re in no particular order. They are all good to add into a healthy diet with diabetes to enhance overall health and disease management. There are more power foods out there.
