As an Insulite customer you would receive the Insulite Guide that outlines food guidelines thoroughly. With regard to beans, oats, squash, etc, I would recommend limiting your portions of these foods. They are all healthy foods and filled with vitamins and minerals. However, they are pretty high in carbs. If you are going to have some oatmeal, I recommend adding nuts and seeds to keep blood sugar at bay. The key is to eat protein and/or healthy fats along with a carbohydrate-rich food.
I hope this helps! Best of luck to you!
