Healthy Diabetic Meals
Although the management approach and medications for diabetes vary depending on the type of diabetes, age, health status, and lifestyle factors–diet is always a key factor. The good news is that there are foods you can add to your diet that will help control diabetes. Our collection of healthy diabetic main dishes offer low-carb, low-fat, low-sugar, and low-sodium options that are flavorful and satisfying down to the last bite.
First up is our Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa.
Pineapple is a sweet foil for the fiery jalapeño. Either fresh or canned pineapple chunks work well in this recipe. If you like a spicier kick, remember that smaller jalapeño peppers are typically hotter than the larger ones. To complete the meal, serve with rice and steamed snow peas.
Lemon Chicken Pita Burgers with Spiced Yogurt Sauce
The flavor of lemon brightens the spiced chicken patties in this recipe, and also flavors the tangy sauce, giving a double whammy of citrus flavor. For a healthful, hearty meal, serve in whole-wheat pitas with brown rice or bulgur pilaf.
