Tasty Recipes For Diabetics
In simple terms, when someone has diabetes, their blood glucose is too high. Where does glucose come from? It comes from the foods we eat. Unfortunately, the tastiest meals cannot be eaten by diabetics. That is, unless you know about the delicious meals that a diabetic can eat! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Diabetes Education Program has created a booklet for tasty meals that can be eaten by diabetics.
In general, a person with diabetes should:
- Eat more fiber by eating more whole-grain foods
- Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. Choose fresh, frozen, canned, or dried fruit and 100% fruit juices. Eat a variety of vegetables such as greens, spinach, carrots, squash, beans, etc.
- Eat fewer foods that are high in sugar and salt.
- Drink alcohol sparingly (if any at all).
Here are a few of the tasty recipes from The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Diabetes Education Program that the entire family can enjoy!
