ive seen quite a few people mention veggies..they are a good one! but if youre eating carrots be carefull they are the veggie with the most sugar!!
♠diagnosed in 1997, at age 3♠
♥13 years as a type 1 diabetic is just the start♥
corn and peas both have 3x as much carbs as carrots.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Olives, Danon Light & Lively Carb Control Yogurt (make sure it's carb control - 3 g of carb - others had 10 g.)
Quick note on Carrots. Raw carrots are a free food that does not raise BG; whereas, cooked carrots will really hit the BG button and raise BG.
All carbs are not the same so be careful with foods. Some even have the same carbs and are completely different in BG.
ma endo told me when i was diagnosed 13 years ago ta watch out for carrots, and ya corn is even worse, and peas arent too bad if you get the fresh kind, and na tha sweet peas.
There's only 3 carbs per half cup of cottage cheese. I usually eat it with some kind of fruit so I guess it wouldn't technically be free...but pretty low carb!
I made the cookies with the ingredients peanut butter, splenda, vanilla and egg - less than 5 carbs per cookie. You cant have more than one at a time BUT sometimes they hit the spot.
Cooked carrots yes, they will raise BG, raw carrots no, they will not raise BG..unless they are sugar coated.
One thing I absolutely love is fruit juice (which we all know is one of the absolute worst things you could do to yourself as a T1) and I found Fuze juice, the low calorie stuff only has like 3 grams per bottle. Also, Sobe Life water is low carb/carb free and Vitamin Water Zero also has low/free carb. Just in case you want something to drink with all your carb free snacks that isn't diet soda or water.
Thank you for posting this!! My 7 year old daughter was just diagnosed two weeks ago. Since going back to school last week (1 week after diagnoses) they've had two birthday's and my daughter could not eat the cupcakes. I've been racking my brain trying to find a zero or low carb treat that I can send with her for those days!! THANK YOU!!!
