With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s an excuse to feast on a lot of good food. However, for those of us watching our blood sugar, what foods should we be looking out for? 

Dessert and high sugar foods are obviously to be limited (if not avoided), but there are other Thanksgiving dinner staples that will cause blood glucose to rise. Savory foods high in carbohydrates, such as bread, grains, corn, and potatoes, are less obvious causes of blood sugar levels spiking after a meal. 

Check the following articles for list of common Thanksgiving foods, and the amount of carbohydrates per serving for a better idea of what foods to really avoid (pecan pie), and maybe some slightly better alternatives (apple pie). We hope you enjoy the holidays while staying mindful of your health!
