Diabetes-friendly recipes should be just as interesting and tasty as any other type of recipes! There is no reason why we should eat bland and boring food just because we are pancreatically challenged! That why I have made this collection of healthy and easy dinner recipes for diabetics!
All of the recipes are relatively low carb (less than 20 grams of carbs per serving) and most of them take less than 30 minutes to make. And they all taste AMAZING!
people often ask me: “What can a person with diabetes eat for dinner?” I don’t think there is a single right answer to that question, but I have a few guidelines I like to follow:
Less than 20 grams of carbs. Mostly carbs with a low glycemic index At least 20 grams of protein Some healthy fat.
This should give you a healthy and balanced dinner that won’t spike your blood sugar. You can, of course, make changes to these guidelines if you follow a specific diet (ketogenic diet, plant-based diet, etc.) but this is what I prefer.
So let’s dig in and get started on these 10 Healthy Dinner Recipes for Diabetics!
