Great list, Richard, thanks. I will refer to it in the future. I have become addicted to apple slices dipped in crunchy peanut butter. I also love raw sugar snap peas. I sometimes snack on high fiber crackers and cheese. Almonds are a regular with me, too. But your list shows me so many other delicious options.

Thanks for the list! I love it!

I also wanted to suggest these snack cakes I love that have only 15g of carbs, and they're low-glycemic too. So yummy! They're called Sweet Abandon, and they have 4 flavors, though my favorite is the chocolate.

When your blood glucose is running normal, there is less than a tablespoon of sugar...in the blood...more like a teaspoon...of sugar in the blood at optimal. When it's higher than 100'ish, the blood becomes more acidic in ph and more viscous

The average human body can store around 150 grams of sugar (in the form of glycogen)in the muscles and the liver at full capacity. That's where the insulin or medicine puts the sugar when it enters the bloodstream faster than it can be burned or stored. A diabetic usually finds their liver and muscles already at full capacity for sugar storage, so the excess sugar must be transformed if it's to be removed and stored. This transformation of sugar into fat is slower than just storing it in the muscles & liver (significantly slower), so just a little (say 15 grams) of sugar can send the glucose pretty high until the excess sugar is transformed. Your blood sugar needs (based on activity level) merit low glycemic starch & sugar choices.
Try consistently covering the lion's share of your plate with these carbohydrate choices and see what happens.
Broccoli
Green Beans
Yellow Summer Squash
Kale
Spinach
Brussels Sprouts
Mustard Greens
Collard Greens
Cauliflower
Cabbage
Alfalfa Sprouts
zucchini
Lettuce (all varieties)
Eggplant
Cucumber
Celery
Asparagus
Artichoke
Snow peas
