It’s a good idea for diabetic to squeeze in more monounsaturated fats in their daily diet. diabetics increase intake of monounsaturated fats and cut out saturated or polyunsaturated fat, commonly found in spreads, packaged foods and fast food.
The easiest way to do this is to incorporate olive oil, canola oil, or nuts in your meals. Garnish vegetables with slivered almonds, hazelnuts, or pine nuts instead of butter. Use nut butters, such as peanut or almond butter, without partially hydrogenated oils. Avocados are also a good source of monounsaturated fats and an easy addition to sandwiches and salads.
Ditch store-bought salad dressings and make your own. To make a simple dressing, mix two parts olive oil with one part balsamic vinegar. Add nuts for extra monounsaturated fat benefit....yum
