I found this site for Diabetic Living that has a magazine they put out. They mention 17 low-carb snacks - yummy! Only problem is when I took a closer look, those snacks (not meals) in of themselves contained at least 15 to 20 grams of carbs and the emphasis is still on light yogurt and low fat milk. Get this one - 3 graham cracker squares for 20 grams of carbohydrate! (what a non-nutrient snack), popcorn, apples, oranges, peanut butter and whole wheat bread or half an English muffin (at least it was half - but who can stop there once one gets an insulin rush?), cheese and a bit of apple. Here's a better snack - strawberries and cottage cheese (oh wait a bit - low fat cottage cheese!). One cup of grapes - whew a lot of sugar for someone who has problems with their carbohydrate metabolism - no protein or fat to balance that out either! Cereal, peanut butter and crackers and carrots, pita bread and hummus rounds up the snacks. I don't know - I think they could have done much better, especially since we're talking about people who have diabetes!
To be fair, their low-carb meals looked much better - the few that I glanced at. So maybe they're getting there like Laura suggests. It certainly would help so many people live happier, healthier lives. About time!
