6 Delicious Diabetes Recipes

Finding new, healthy recipes to try when you have diabetes can be a challenge.

In order to keep your blood sugar under control, you ideally want to pick recipes that are lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein, healthy fats, and fiber.

Here are 6 recipes to try, straight from nutritionists and diabetes experts.

1. Cauliflower-based bowls
You’ve probably encountered cauliflower rice by now, which is a nice fiber-rich, low-carb choice that provides a rice-like texture in a variety of dishes. It takes on the flavor of whatever you serve it with, making it an incredibly versatile meal base.

2. A make-ahead breakfast option
Typical breakfast options like cereal, bagels, muffins, and even granola bars often aren’t diabetes-friendly because of their refined sugar and starch content, which can lead to unstable blood sugar levels.

3. Anything-but-boring salad with nuts
Nuts add excitement and flavor to salads, and have been shown to help reduce blood sugar and insulin levels, which makes them a wonderful addition to any diabetes-friendly recipe.

4. A main course with plant-based protein
A meatless meal is an ideal way to get a little plant-based protein — like lentils — into your diet. Plus, research suggests that swapping out some animal-based proteins for plant-based ones may help increase glycemic control in people with diabetes.

5. Fried rice that’s light on carbs
Healthy twists on takeout staples make sticking to a diabetes-friendly diet a lot easier. While people with diabetes don’t need to avoid carbohydrates completely, recipes that are balanced between macronutrients (protein, fat, and carbs) are best.

6. A low-sugar sweet treat
Dessert doesn’t have to be packed with sugar, which can cause blood glucose swings. And yes, chocolate can be part of a healthy diabetes-friendly diet — as long as it’s enjoyed in moderation, according to the American Diabetes Association.
