There's no need to toss your favorite recipes after a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Try these fixes that modify the ingredients while keeping the flavor.

Great post (as always)! I find that I tweak alot of my recipes that are tried to true to include dreamfield pasta or low fat this or that. I am more conscious now to the nutritional labels than I used to be. Every little bit of carbs, fat, sodium or whatever adds up. I am on a mission to go from fatness to fitness and can get there with simple swaps and informative articles like I get from your posts, Mays.

Thanks Ray.
Together we can all knock the wind out of the diabetic monster, setting it up for the knockout punch from the next generation of diabetics.
Post some of your recipes (if you have the time) for others to share!

Actually I just posted one tonight for an awesome ham and cheese stuffed chicken breast that my wife and I made for dinner for the first time. It won't be the last time. Pre-dinner: 137, Post-dinner: 102. It was ready in no time (knock out punch? Yup we used the George Foreman) and only 4 ingredients. Check it out here on DC recipes.

I will definitely check it out, make it for friends and pass it on, I'm a vegetarian (30 years, 10 as a vegan) so I'll have to pass on trying it, but I'm sure that I will enjoy making it, keep posting them !

I use not only olive oil, but other oils as well, like nut, grape seed and sesame oil - they're very flavorful so you only need a little in your dressing or stir fry. When it comes to my Italian cravings, I pick dark pastas, if possible with spinach, and use pita bread for diabetics I get from Joseph's Bakery as my pizza dough. And I use herbs not only to prepare food, but also in beverages - I mix fresh mint leaves, chamomile and fresh basil to make a very refreshing "tea" with lemon juice squeezed into water to make ice, it's great for hot days.

Alton Brown had a great Good Eats episode on Oils on the food network last night. the only oil he didn't cover was coconut oil, which I absolutely love. But none the less was a wonderful show, worth checking out.
