I think the primary concern if diabetes is the concern would be the dressing. It seems to me that is where the most sugar would exist. Also, you might want to be careful about certain vegetables like carrots, which are higher in sugar compared to the lettuce and the like.
Yes. And there are no bad salads other than salads containing sugar such as some jello salads with whipped topping, but I'm assuming you mean lettuce type salads...? potato salad might be one you'd eat less of because of the amount of carbs it contains. Same goes for macaroni salad. When you start getting into the fancy salads like pea salad and 3 bean salad you have to read the label really to find out the carb and sugar content. Educate yourself. The two things you want to watch for are carbohydrates and sugar. I hope this helps. Oh, and watch the dressing used on lettuce salads too! =)
Salads are good for a diabetic person. I don't use croutons (carbs) . I do add protein such as boiled eggs, browned cubes chicken, lean sliced ham, etc. Watch the dressing. Always check labels. Often to cut or delete calories and fat they often add sugar.
Fresh veggies of all kinds are good for diabetics. Most of what you need to avoid is refined sugars and carbs. My daughter in law is Type 1 onset at 18 months old. Fruit is good but high in natural sugars so she has to eat that in moderation. Breads, potatoes, and other things like that are off the list thought because of the carbs.
