Veggie Advice for New Diabetic

pinehurst | Jul 21, 2012 04:24 PM


My DH is a recently diagnosed diabetic--his first sign was a small stroke. We're very lucky to expect a return to normal, but we are both going to change the way we eat, exercise, and handle stress.

Here's my question. Are any raw veggies particularly diabetes-friendly? We got the no peas/potato/corn warning, but were wondering if a cup of celery is better than a cup of broccoli? I believe carrots have slightly more carbs.

Thanks in advance. I want to do the right thing. We also plan to follow up with a nutritionist.
