Don't agree with the list 100% but there are some good ideas. What foods do you consider "free?"
30 "free" foods that don't raise your blood sugar
Eating right to manage your blood sugar is no small feat. When you have diabetes, you have to pay attention to portion control and carbohydrates every time you eat, and when watching your fat and sodium intake, you may feel like the list of foods you "can't" eat is endless! But don't forget that there are plenty of foods that you can eat without worry, often called "free foods," because they tend not to raise blood sugar levels and can be used to help fill in your meal plan with little worry about their blood sugar affects. Examples of these foods include
1. Non-starchy vegetables, including asparagus, green and wax beans, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, greens, lettuce, onions, pea pods, peppers, radishes, spinach, tomatoes, turnips, and zucchini. These tend to be better choices for diabetics than starchy vegetables such as corn and potatoes.
2. Low-carb foods like club soda, artificially sweetened coffee and tea, diet soda, sugar-free gelatin, seasonings, sugar substitutes and non-dairy creamer have few carbohydrates and calories and are usually considered "free" foods that you do not have to count in your meal plan.
