Dietitian's Answer

Each person will react differently to certain foods, however in general it's best to stick to recipes that include more veggies and fewer fruits. Certain low-sugar (low glycemic-index) fruits such as berries, avocado, and green apple may not affect your blood sugar levels as much as higher GI fruits like watermelon and ripe bananas. Add in a healthy protein source like hemp seeds, chia seeds, a plant-based protein powder, or nuts. Protein and fiber help to blunt blood sugar and insulin spikes.
