5 Blood Sugar Balancing Foods

Updated: Aug 15, 2022

Here is a list of 5 foods that can be helpful for balancing blood sugar

Anyone with insulin resistance or diabetes can use these foods to keep blood sugars balanced and stable.

Super stars for blood sugar control

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Reach for vinegar before you eat carbs! Just 1 tbsp of ACV in 1 cup of water before meals reduces the glucose curve without increasing the amount of insulin needed by slowing down how quickly the carbs are incorporated into your blood stream. ACV also acts as an appetite suppressant which can help you maintain your 3-hour window before fueling again.

Non-starchy veggies (I like to call these my non-starchy freshies)

Eating non-starchy freshies like cucumbers, organic carrots, cherry tomatoes, and many other veggies high in fiber will help blunt any spikes to your blood sugar by slowing the speed at which carbs are absorbed by the body. Fiber also helps you stay full longer. Eating a variety of non-starchy freshies allows you to nourish your body with lots of essential vitamins as well.

Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. One of its greatest benefits is that it supplies a good source of the mineral chromium to the body. This mineral is highly effective for those with high blood sugar levels such as those with diabetes, insulin resistance, and prediabetic conditions and is used to help lower cravings for carbs and sugary foods.

High-Mineral Salt (also known as pink mineral salt or pink Himalayan salt

This salt is full of powerful minerals which help combat elevated blood sugar and can relieve muscle cramps. Using a few pinches of this in your sippers can help keep you hydrated, especially after working out, and keep your electrolytes balanced and prevent dehydration. When you are properly hydrated, you will not be as inclined to feel snacky as often.


Okra is an inexpensive weapon in minimizing high blood sugar and combating type 2 diabetes. It also helps your body melt away stubborn pounds and heals the lining of your gut. It has beneficial properties that act like insulin and allows your body to reduce the amount of insulin it has to make. It acts as a type of fermentable fiber that helps regular blood sugar levels.

Add these superstars to your meals each day and watch your blood sugars rejoice!
