The ADA highly recommends that the below foods be incorporated into individualized diabetic meal plans. All of the foods listed have a low glycemic index or GI and provide key nutrients such as:

• calcium
• potassium
• fiber
• magnesium
• vitamins A (as carotenoids), C, and E


Whether you prefer kidney, pinto, navy or black beans, you can’t find better nutrition than that provided by beans. They are very high in fiber giving you about 1/3 of your daily requirement in just a ½ cup and are also good sources of magnesium, and potassium.
