Making healthy meal choices is an important part of your diabetes management program. With the American Diabetes Association’s Create Your Plate method, you build your plate with 50 percent non-starchy veggies such as carrots, tomatoes, or cabbage; 25 percent proteins such as fish or turkey; and 25 percent starchy foods, such as corn, brown rice, or green beans. Add ½ cup serving of fresh, frozen or canned fruit, without added sugars, a serving of dairy and a low-calorie drink.
