 Fruits and vegetables are extremely important in anyone’s diet – but they are even more important if  you are diabetic. Which fruit and vegetables are best to have? Here are some recommendations:
  • Fresh fruit – concentrate on low-GI fruits such as citrus (oranges, grapefruit), cherries, strawberries and other berries, peaches, pears, apples, plums, kiwifruit and mango
  • Carrot or celery sticks, baby tomatoes, cucumber wedges, lettuce and gherkins
  • Potato salad made with low-fat mayonnaise, chopped onions, gherkins and celery (potatoes have a high GI, but when they’re cooked and cooled down, their GI is lowered – add plain, fat-free yoghurt to the mayonnaise to reduce the fat content even further)
  • Baked sweet potatoes, or lightly cooked green beans, peas and snap peas
