Fruit gives you energy, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Examples of fruits which are recommended to Diabetics include:

? Bananas

? Apples

? Fruit Juices

? Strawberries

? Raisins

? Oranges

? Mango

? Guava

? Papaya

Basically, for diabetics,One small apple, one-half cup fruit juice, or one-half of a grapefruit all considered one serving of fruit each.

Some of the healthy ways to eat fruits:

? Eat fruits raw or cooked, as juice with no sugar added,canned in their own juice, or dried.

? Buy organic fruits, which are basically nutritious.

? Eat pieces of fruit rather than drinking fruit juice. Pieces of fruit are more filling and fibrous.

? Drink fruit juice in small amounts.

? Save high-sugar and high-fat fruit desserts such as peach cobbler or cherry pie for special occasions.

High in fibre and very low fat, fruit has many health benefits. This makes fruit a recommended source of carbohydrate for everyone but especially diabetics.

If you make your own fruit juice don't filter it, retain the fruit pulp, this is the fibre content of the fruit and it slows the fruit juice's conversion to blood sugar.Fiber is the non-digestible carbohydrate found in plant-based foods. It keeps you feeling full longer, and may also help lower blood sugar and blood fat levels. Choose whole grains and cereals, and eat lots of fruits and veggies, to help you reach a healthy goal of 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day.
