The basics for a low sugar meal is that eating foods with low glycemic index such as whole wheat bread, oatmeal, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds and brown rice. Choose high-fiber fruit like raspberries, apples (with the peel) and oranges, rather than fruit juice or fruit snacks. Drinking just 6 to 8 ounces of water with every meal can slow the rise of blood sugar.
