Prediabetes requires mindful eating, but it doesn't mean you have to forgo sweetness. Fruits, nature's candy, can still be a part of your diet. Here's how you can indulge in fruit's natural sweetness without the guilt.
1. Strawberry Parfait
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup Greek yogurt, unsweetened
1/4 cup granola, no added sugar
A drizzle of honey (optional)
Layer the Greek yogurt and strawberries in a glass, topping with granola and a drizzle of honey for a touch of sweetness.
2. Citrusy Grapefruit-Avocado Salad
1 grapefruit, sectioned
1 avocado, sliced
A handful of walnuts
Dressing: olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper
Toss the mixed greens with the grapefruit sections and avocado slices. Top with walnuts and dress lightly with the mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
3. Baked Cinnamon Apples
4 apples, cored and sliced
2 tsp ground cinnamon
A sprinkle of nutmeg
A touch of stevia (optional)
Place the sliced apples in a baking dish, sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and stevia. Bake at 375°F for 25 minutes or until tender.
