If you’re a diabetic, you might not be able to eat all the foods that you used to enjoy. Your health comes before great tasting food.The good news is there are some tasty recipes for diabetics. You just need to take the time to cook them for yourself. Most restaurants won’t prepare your food for your health/diet needs. They want to make sure their food leaves people full and with satisfied palates. The Mayo Clinic describes a diabetes diet in the following way:

“A diabetes diet — medically known as medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for diabetes — simply translates into eating a variety of nutritious foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes.

Rather than a restrictive diet, a diabetes diet or MNT is a healthy-eating plan that’s naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories, with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone.”
