Putting together a meal for a diabetic diet plan involves making the best choices out of each food group. For example, when it comes to fruit, fresh produce, preserves or jam with no sugar, frozen fruit and 100 percent fruit juice are the best choices, along with applesauce that has no additional sugar, as stated by WebMD.
Any vegetable is good for a diabetic diet. However, vegetables that have been cooked with butter or cheese should be avoided, as should those that have been canned with a lot of sodium. Instead, diabetics should eat vegetables fresh, steamed, grilled or roasted. Canned vegetables can be acceptable as long as they have low or no sodium, reports WebMD.
With flour and other starches, diabetics should choose whole-grain options such as brown rice and whole-wheat flour. Instead of French fries, baked steak fries or baked yams are preferable. Instead of white bread, whole-grain bread is the better choice, according to WebMD.
