Many people will tell you that "natural" sugars are safer for your Diabetes than refined sugar. However, sugar is still sugar. My Step-Mother told me I should put honey on my food as it's perfectly fine... wrong! My blood sugar still spiked sky high afterward. Always double check the "medical" advice you receive from family and friends hen it comes to your diabetes.
To reduce the sugar in your diet, try using light or low-fat products when you cook. These products aren't just lower in fat- they also contain less sugar and sodium. This is a great way to continue to use things like peanut butter, sour cream, and cheese in your cooking.
