It can be difficult and expensive to try to eat healthy with diabetes. Things are gradually changing, but some of the healthiest foods are still often among the most expensive. Here are ten foods that won't sabotage your budget or your blood sugar.
Eggs. Eggs are a great, low carb source of protein and an array of other nutrients. Eggs are one of the most inexpensive and versatile diabetes superfoods. Have them scrambled, fried, in a veggie and cheese omelet, or hard-boiled as a quick snack or made into egg salad.
Canned or Dried Beans. Beans top the list of inexpensive healthy foods in my book. You can usually purchase a can of beans, such as black, kidney, pinto, or navy beans for around one dollar per can. One-half cup of beans provides around 15 grams of carbs, varying amounts of protein, and lots of fiber. Add beans to salads, soups, tacos, dips or chili.
