Looking for cook book, diet recommendation
nikitakev posted:
Appointment for my DH with the Dietitian is still weeks away.In the meantime I am looking for recommendations for cook books or links to develop a diet for diabetes.
My husband cannot eat any beans, peanuts, soy products, limited dairy, and some green vegetables. Before his diagnosis that was no big problem but now it limits his healthy food choices enormously since a lot of foods that a diabetic can and should eat, he can not.
Any input would be apreciated

I think the easiest thing to do is just google "low carb xxx recipe" -- whatever ingredient you may want to use. There are literally thousands of recipes out there and if you start your search with the words "low carb" you should find recipes that will work for you and him.

Thanks for your response.
Recipes are not so much the problem, I have changed our regular meals to more veggies and whole grain , which seams to work well for him and his BG. I am looking for ideas for food on the go- he works night shift and has no ability to heat up anything and eating salads, fruit and sandwiches every night gets boring quick.
I keep looking.

I found black tea is very good to lower your blood sugar, take 2 cups every day, one in the morning and other one after lunch, never on empty stomac is very strong.
