In brief: Good Food
Good foods for someone with diabetes are the same as good foods for someone without diabetes.
Maintaining a balance between carbs (sugar & starch), protein, and fat is one goal. Another is emphasizing complex carbs over simple carbs to spread sugar absorption out over a longer timeframe and reduce "spikes" in blood sugar. Complex carbs = whole grain, starchy vegetables, beans.
