Diabetes-Friendly Recipes

Overview

People living with diabetes face many questions when it comes to diet and meal planning. The goals of healthy eating for those with diabetes are to support a healthy weight and maintain blood glucose levels. With a little instruction and inspiration, it is easy to accomplish these objectives – deliciously.

Like anyone following a healthy lifestyle, people with diabetes should opt for plenty of vegetables, fruits and lean protein. Sugary foods, starchy vegetables and refined carbohydrates should stay on the shelf. But dark leafy greens, protein-packed beans and other legumes, fish (those rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and trout) and fiber-rich whole grains like barley, provide a wide variety of tastes and nutrients to combine creatively.

The right recipes ensure that people living with diabetes can say “yes” to dessert. Delicious berries and other fruits (fresh or dried) combined with yogurt, ginger, nuts and even a touch of whipped cream can tempt everyone at the table while ensuring optimal health.
