3. Dried fruit
Dried fruit is also approved by the American Diabetes Association, but with a caveat from doctors and other health experts: Because dried fruit is so small, it can be very easy to overdose on it, because it takes up very little space in your stomach.
You need to be counting every piece of dried fruit that you eat in order to avoid a hyperglycemic incident. A list of some of the dried fruit mentioned by health professionals includes cherries, raisins, prunes, figs, dates, and cranberries. Keep in mind, you should be eating about ¼ of a cup.
A cup of any of these dried fruits is going to run around 120 grams of carbohydrates.
