I’m dehydrating some tart apples and under-ripe plums as a healthful, fiber-filled diabetic diabetic-friendly snack!

Low-carb eating is how I’m working to reverse my type 2 diabetes as well as lots of lifestyle changes like sleeping more than 6 hours each night, exercising every day, (some days it’s just walking the dogs), increasing water consumption, stress reduction, and more.

I found “Gold Rush” apples at the Farmer’s Market- diabetic-friendly, lower sugar, and crispy!

I select tart apples and under-ripe plums because they are lower in the glycemic index and won’t spike my blood sugar. (Just remember how many slices you cut from one apple so you don’t overeat them!)

Roasted and raw cashews in mason jars. I also like to sprout seeds. Low-carb snacks!

As part of a diabetic-friendly pantry I also have lots of raw and sprouted seeds and nuts.

Homemade apple chips, dried sweet and sour plums, and nuts in mason jars.

Check out my setup!

I hope to inspire you to prepare your dehydrated fruits!

Homemade dried apple chips are stored in this pretty floral Arc french storage jar!

I’m a type 2 diabetic who grows my food, cooks and bakes low-carb, and am reversing my Type two diabetes little by little every day!

Homemade dehydrated apple and plum chips save me lots of money.
