You plan dinner but lunch is usually an after thought. Usually you pick something up from fast food places, or just throw something together. You can choose foods that will help you control your diabetes and keep you full until you have a mid-afternoon snack. Your goal should be to include plenty of fiber (from salads, bean soups, or whole grain sandwich bread) vegetables and at least one source of lean protein(such as tuna or grilled chicken.)
Swap the full-fat slices of cheese in your sandwich for avocado slices. You don't need to elimate cheese, just add to it.
Fatten up sandwiches with vegetables…lettuce, tomato, cumcumbers, bean sprouts, red or yellow peppers.
