- Add avocados to your diet—avocado contains fats that actually improve insulin sensitivity—try Turkey and Bean Chili with Avocado Salsa
- Berries, from ruby red strawberries to mid-night blue blueberries, are magic for your blood sugar—they are full of fiber, which keeps blood sugar low, and antioxidants, which benefit every cell in your body—try Cherry-Raspberry Crumble
- Pasta, although high in carbs, if cooked al dente and served with a topping containing vegetables, beans, chicken, garlic, and onions, you could get many magic foods on one plate and still keep your blood sugar in a medium range—try Macaroni and Cheese with Spinach
- Cinnamon and vinegar are “secret ingredients” that can significantly lower your blood sugar response to any meal—try cinnamon in Moroccan Spiced Carrots or vinegar in Flank Steak with Balsamic Sauce
