Diabeties- friendly snacks (printable)

15 Carbs snack list (Sponsored by Diabetes Daily)  If you want to print it, either go to the link below, or copy and paste what I listed.  CWE is re-publishing this as a courtesy and makes no claims about the content.

David, Co-founder of Diabetes Daily, says, “There are thousands of people on diets that include a 15g of carbs snack. I thought it would be helpful to create a list of snacks that meet the requirements. For many of these, you’ll need to check the nutrition label to make sure the ingredients you are using add up to 15g of carbs. It’s all about portion sizes and, in the case of packaged foods, the particular brand you select.”
