Blood sugar control is critical if you have prediabetes or diabetes, or if you are trying to lose weight. Wild swings can leave you feeling hungry, dizzy, or worse, but they can happen with too many high-carb or high-sugar foods. FIFTY50 Foods are low-glycemic alternatives to many of your favorites, so you can keep eating them on your diabetes or weight loss diet.
Did you know that a packet of instant oatmeal can have over 15 grams of sugar? Did you know that people who eat more whole grains, such as oats, are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes? FIFTY50 puts those together in its Low-Glycemic Whole-Grain Oatmeal. Made with nothing but 100% whole-grain oats, this oatmeal can be made with water, milk, or even yogurt if you want overnight oatmeal. You can vary it by adding healthy combinations such as pumpkin and cinnamon or apple and peanut butter, or even make it savory and higher in protein with shredded cheese.
