I love to snack as a part of my diet. Since I exercise regularly, I can find myself getting hungry between meals, and having a good snack list is helpful for me. 

A lot of my readers ask for healthy diabetic snacks, or what snacks people with diabetes can eat.

I compiled 39 snacks that make their rotation in my kitchen, and their carb counts!

Each diabetes-friendly snack is simple to make, or affordable to purchase and add to your grocery list.
