Serious eating & diabetes

Well...I went to the dr. for my annual physical last night & found out I have type 2 diabetes. It was a shock, since I cook from scratch, no processed stuff....and I always felt I eat fairly healthy. I do fall off the wagon w/once a week fast food trips, and I do have a soda (sugar not hfcs) every day. I'm a juice fanatic....that's one of my down falls...I could drink 1/2 gallon a day. I do drink water all day at work.
I noticed when I did a search for diabetes here, that there are a few people here that have diabetes. How do you reconcile being a serious eater & diabetes? What are some of your favorite snacks? (I think that's going to be my trickest area!)
I have my diabetes education classes in 2 weeks, but I'd love some tips in the meantime if you're willing to share!
thank you!
