Patience is a virtue, but sometimes it is better to be impatient when it comes to your health. Eat these ten foods if you don't want to be a patient with diabetes.
1. Red Cabbage
Red Cabbage is packed with anthocyanins - the pigment that gives this vegetable its dark red color.
Many studies have found that anthocyanins can prevent or reverse obesity and type 2 diabetes by reducing inflammation, lowering blood sugar, and improving insulin resistance (the driving factor that leads to type 2 diabetes).
If you are not a fan of red cabbage, you can still get the benefits of blood sugar lowering anthocyanins by eating other dark red, purple, or blue plant foods like blueberries.
Put lemon juice in your water or meals to provide you with health-boosting, blood-sugar-lowering flavonoids whenever you want.
6. Fenugreek Seeds
This flavorful seed provides us with a quick and easy way to improve blood sugar levels while fasting and after a meal.
The effects of fenugreek seeds are so powerful that they can help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 1 diabetes. This means that fenugreek seeds are effective with and without the help of insulin.
You can consume fenugreek seeds in the form of a tea or add fenugreek seed powder to dressings, sauces, or curries.
It is commonly used in Indian foods to give them a slightly sweet, nutty flavor that is often described as a cross between celery and maple.
