Even better would be celery sticks or apple slices. Love PB on apple slices.

Right. All those floury items turn right into glucose once digested.

I keep a big can of lightly salted mixed nuts next to my recliner to nibble on when I watch TV.

They're not great choices for diabetics, though, which is the topic. The Chief had a great list of snacks that won't raise one's blood sugar.

I have several friends that are diabetic and when I entertain or bring something to their place, one of my mainstays in the house is a spread or dip.This can be used on veggies, gluten free crackers, meat, etc. Here is one of my staple snacks.
Get sweet potato and slice very thin, almost like a chip or cracker and either microwave or bake them with just a spritz of olive oil and pink Himalayan salt. Basic spread..In a bowl take regular or low fat cream cheese softened then add:diced or mined or grated Habanero peppers, Jalapeno, green onions, garlic, ground cumin, salt and mix or put all in a processor...unless you like the chunks of peppers :-) To thin out the spread, you can use sour cream or yogurt, depending upon if you are making a spread or dip...Now spread or dip and you're good to go! Enjoy!

That's because, basically, it IS candy. And not a good choice for keeping blood sugar under control.

Reading through some of the responses in this thread, I am truly surprised. Here are a few other examples that had me shaking my head:
  • Plain Cheerios right out of the box.
  • Triscuits
  • Utz pretzel rods
  • A small banana
  • plain Rice Cakes

Do people not realize that from your body's perspective there is virtually no difference between sugar and starch? They all end up in your bloodstream as glucose. Any of the foods on this list is going to cause elevated blood glucose levels.
