If you have diabetes or celiac disease, finding healthy snacks to eat can be difficult. Here are five nutritious and tasty snack ideas if you struggle with these conditions.

1. Yogurt With Blueberries

Yogurt with blueberries is a great snack for those with diabetes and celiac disease. Not only is yogurt tasty, but it's known for its ability to lower blood sugar levels and it also contains probiotics. Probiotics are live bacteria that benefit your digestive system by fighting off harmful bacteria, and they've also been shown to improve mood, boost the immune system and aid in weight loss. As an additional benefit, blueberries are a great source of antioxidants and fiber. Antioxidants can lower inflammation and prevent damage to the pancreas, the organ in charge of lowering blood sugar. If you're not a fan of blueberries, try swapping them out for strawberries or raspberries, which can provide you with similar health benefits.

2. Overnight Oats

If you're wondering is oatmeal good for diabetics, look no further. Overnight oats are a popular snack option because they're full of antioxidants, vitamin B and protein. In addition, they're an ideal option for diabetics due to their high fiber content and low glycemic index. To make overnight oats, all you have to do is whisk together oats, milk, yogurt and honey in a jar and leave them in the fridge overnight to thicken up. To liven up the recipe, consider adding toppings such as slivered almonds, frozen berries or chia seeds. If you're craving a warm snack, pop your oats in the microwave for one minute before enjoying.

Keep in mind that pure oats are naturally gluten-free, but they may be contaminated with gluten if they're processed in the same facility as gluten-containing grains. Therefore, be sure to check the label before consuming oatmeal if you have celiac disease.

3. Spinach and Mozzarella Microwave Quiche

Spinach is a great option for diabetics due to its extremely low sugar content and high fiber content, while cheese can be enjoyed in moderation. Mozzarella is considered one of the best cheeses for diabetics because it's low in sodium and fat. You can make this quiche from scratch in less than five minutes, making it a great snack option for when you're on-the-go.

To begin, place spinach in a mug, add water and microwave for one minute. Then, drain the water and add in the egg, milk, cheese and any other toppings you want. Pop in the microwave for three minutes and you'll have a healthy snack that you can bring with you anywhere. In addition to being a tasty option for those with diabetes and celiac disease, this snack is also packed with nutrients and a fantastic source of protein.

4. Popcorn

It may sound simple, but popcorn is actually a very healthy snack for those with diabetes and celiac disease. It's great for diabetics because of its low calorie and high fiber content. In fact, one cup of popcorn has just 31 calories. In addition, eating foods low in calories can help you to manage your weight, which has been shown to lower blood sugar levels. Be careful to look for organic or natural popcorn, as many other popcorn brands are loaded with salt, trans fats and harmful chemicals. If you can, it's best to pop your own popcorn.

5. Peanut Butter on Apple Slices

Sliced apples dipped into peanut butter make for a great snack for people with diabetes and celiac disease. Not only are they free of gluten, but apples and peanut butter are rich in magnesium, manganese and vitamin E, all of which have been shown to help manage diabetes. In addition, apples and peanut butter are both high in fiber. One apple paired with just one ounce of peanut butter can provide up to seven grams of fiber.


Finding healthy snacks to eat if you have diabetes or celiac disease doesn't have to be stressful. Consider these five easy snack ideas if you're looking for delicious and nutritious foods to snack on throughout the day.
