What is an ideal evening snack for someone with diabetes?

Good evening snacks for people with diabetes are foods that are low in carbs and also have some fiber. Examples include cottage cheese and berries; whole wheat crackers and natural peanut butter; a pear with a handful of almonds; or hummus and raw veggies.
