Type 2 diabetes management is all about eating a healthy diet. Fruits and vegetables are a great addition to a diabetes eating plan because they are low-fat, low-calorie, and packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Looking for nutrition facts for some of your favorite fruits and vegetables? Look no further, here's a list that will add variety and taste to your diabetes meal plan.

Add more vegetables to your day. They're low in carbohydrates and high in fiber. They'll help you feel full without a lot of calories.

Eat more fruit and less processed snacks. Fruit can satisfy a sweet tooth and boost your vitamin intake.

Fruits and vegetables will not only add variety to your diet, but you can substitute them for not-so-healthy choices to save calories and boost nutrition. So, go ahead and enjoy a healthy variety of fruits and vegetables.
