Low Calorie Day and the Power of Blueberries

Often labeled a “superfood,” this little berry is bursting with vitamins and minerals, many of which are classified as antioxidants.

If you have diabetes, the key to maintaining your blood sugar is to use portion control. Thanks to the low-carbohydrate density of strawberries, you can safely enjoy a 1¼-cup serving. The diabetic exchange for blueberries is 3/4 cup. The diabetic exchange for blackberries is 3/4 cup. The diabetic exchange for raspberries is 1 cup.

Berries are ideal for a diabetic diet. They’re sweet, delicious, and low on the glycemic index.

Important to note: fruits such as berries contain fructose, a natural sugar that doesn’t require insulin to be metabolized, so fruit tends to be well-tolerated. Strive to consume at least two servings of fruit each day, but monitor what works best for you.
