5. Tomatoes

Top 10 foods for diabetics.

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin K. They also provide potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, chrome and vitamin B1. Tomatoes contain the health-promoting lycopene, which both protects the skin and helps prevent prostate cancer. Because of their low carbohydrate content, tomatoes also help to control blood sugar levels. The low amount of carbohydrate helps with limiting the calorie intake and can thus helps to lose weight.

Try this fruity super delicious dip: 3 dates, 8 cherry tomatoes, some fresh basil leaves, a clove of garlic, some lemon juice and a dash of olive oil. Puree everything in a blender – done. Tastes good as a barbecue sauce, with vegetables or sweet potato fries.
