It is important to include fruits and vegetables in your diabetic diet. Non-starchy veggies, such as broccoli, spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts etc. should be preferred to the starchy ones like corn, potatoes, butternut squash etc. The latter has a higher carbs content though they are rich in nutrients as well. You should have them in comparatively lesser quantity. Non starchy veggies are also good for eye health especially as diabetics are prone to blindness. Also, go for cruciferous veggies, such as cauliflower, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage etc. that help bring down oxidative stress and vascular complications linked with diabetes, thereby cutting down risk to neuropathy and cardiac disorders. As for fruits, apples, papaya, apricots, avocadoes, peaches, plums, kiwi, berries, citrus fruits and pears should be preferred whereas bananas, cherries, pineapple, grapes and melon avoided.
