8 Low-Carb Veggies for a Diabetes-Friendly Diet

Here is an article ("8 Low-Carb Veggies for a Diabetes-Friendly Diet", by Regina Boyle Wheeler) talking about the Low-Carb Veggies that would be helpful to a diabetic diet. Please check out the article and slide show. The website is: everydayhealth.com/type-2-d...

If you would like to see the pictures after the slide show is over, click on the "View All" button at the bottom of the screen. It will give you the eight pictures without the video/slide show. I thought it was very interesting and gave me some great ideas for the next get together I have coming up. Plus, the veggies listed can help keep the blood sugars under control very nicely.

  • Excp asparagus and Brussels sprouts I take all of the rest

  • Shashikantiyengar

    How about fenugreek seed sprouts ? How to make it. Very bitter ?

  • I usually get it from godrej nature basket or hypercity.

    Lasts a week.

    Take a couple of teaspoon mixed with moong sprouts

  • we can add lauki β€œBottle gourd..


  • cure

    Lauki. Hmm. Spikes bs

  • Suramo ji, Lauki also spikes bs ?, which other veggies also spike bs ?, now lauki bhi nahin khana ?

  • Bottle gourd/lauki does not spike. Around 3 gm net carbs /100 gm. No free/simple sugar. I regularly eat lauki.

    Halwa, subji etc.

  • shrisamarth,

    What are the halwa and subji?

  • Sabji is vegetable preparation.

    Halwa (grated bottle gourd or carrots)is sweet dish preparation made with ghee and/or khoya (khoya means - most of the moisture is removed from the milk).


  • Thank you! I plan to check out the link, as well. This will help a lot!

  • shrisamarth

    You are right but now i have to review what i said about lauki. I think i'm wrong about lauki.

  • Hmmm well suramo and shrisamarth what we are comparing is just carb contents of Lauki...

    But guess what??? for some ppl even raw tomato spikes... may be suramo is right that lauki spiked tro him...

    For me even raw tomato spikes...

    Guess each individual responds different to different food items... so regular BS check with meter is required...

  • Tomato and Onions have sugar :)


  • yes... agree but onion never spikes to me...but sure tomato spikes... :(

    each individual has got different reaction to different food items...

  • Lauki is one of the safest vegetable for everyone.

  • Shashikantiyengar

    That can be made at home. I'm asking if it's very bitter or there is some way of cooking to remove bitterness.

  • Not too bitter

    That's why I mentioned that I mix with moong sprouts. Anyway I have now learnt to have bitters

  • Shashikantiyengar

    Kya shashi. Sweets have gone out of life. Now you add to the punishment by adding bitterness πŸ’πŸ’. 😁😁😁

  • Bitterness sey dosti bana lo

    Sweetness stevia mey hai

  • Shashikantiyengar

    Thoda jyada ho jata hai. Bitterness 😝😝. Kadwa kha kha k dil o dimag bhi kadwa ho jata hai 😁😁😁

  • bhai suramo sprouting fenugreek is same as u sprout moong...

    yeah its bitter..... but once u develop taste....u can consume....

    we do make 'usal' of sprouted fenugreek....with dried shimps added... ver tasty....

    but be careful.... if you are not used to the same.... it will give u headache...(pitta trouble)

  • how about ' Bharva Ringani'?? suramo

    or Ringna no odo :P

  • cure

    Excellent recipe. But we make without sugar. Still πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

  • cure

    I can't eat fenugreek seeds. Gi problem. But shrimps ! Kya bro. Gujju ko machhali khilaaoge.

  • Shashikantiyengar just search local ayurveda shop or shatvari herb.... soak those sticks in water full night....

    and consume them as salad... shatavari means asparagus... :P

    However the variety of asparagus which is consumed in western world as vegetable is bit different....

  • Informative!

    Thanks for posting!!

  • You're welcome! I will be looking for a few other things related to food and/or exercise soon.

  • My experience is tomato do spike many times... :(

  • Tomatoes do different things to different people.

  • cure

    Yes. Esp puree. Eat whole with skin as salad. Will not spike

  • Lauki is good. Lauki with little pulse never spikes my sugar. I usually take this without any Chapatti at night. Thanks.
